Real golfers. Real reviews.

Played the course Mar 24, 2024. Course was in good shape, not perfect but nice considering time of year. Scenery was beautiful, especially around 1 and 10. Highly recommend having a beer at the clubhouse and watching golfers tee off at 10. RV park within walking distance may become a problem as people can walk on to the course anytime. Course had generous fairways but lots of contour and wind, making it play harder than it looks. Plenty of water to nab a slightly off-target tee shot or a ricochet off a contour. Most of staff was exceptionally friendly. Pace was fine on the day we golfed. Great course but pricey; look for a deal. Top tracer range at course is great for dialing in your clubs on Day 1 of a vacation trip, especially after a winter lay-off.
First time playing in Hilton Head, and maybe my expectations were too high. For the money ($225) I'm not sure this round was worth it. There were definitely some shining moments for the course, especially around the signature hole, #10. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The driving range was absolutely awesome. Top Tracer technology on every bay, and some really solid food served for a little pre-round meal. If I was rating just the staff and amenities around food, on-course service, and the amenities of the half-way house at the turn and pro-shop, easily a 5 star review. Condition of the course to start the round and end the round was not stellar. As mentioned above, when you go to the signature hole and the holes surrounding it, conditions seemed to improve. My biggest complaint of the round was the pace of play. We started to get really backed up on hole 3 or so, and come to find out it was because of the Charity situation they had set up on the par 3, hole #5. I'm all for a chance to help out a charity and have a friendly competition to win more prizes for hitting the green or a hole-in-one, but we were stacked up 4 groups deep when we got to that hole. We literally waited for 25 minutes once we got off hole 4 while the groups ahead of us participated in the charity opportunity on the par-3. Completely threw off our round and any groove we had settled into in the first couple of holes. I would've gladly given up the prizes for participating and discount in the pro-shop for a round that didn't have a 30 minute pause 5 holes in. Overall, when I approach the $200+ price tag for a round of golf, I have some higher expectations than normal. 5 stars to the staff and overall course amenities. Overall, we still had a great time and enjoyed the round. Its just never fun and leaves a bit of a bad taste in your mouth to pay that kind of money, and have the frustration of the hold up that occurred on hole 5.
Terrific course. Great amenities and service also.
This place is in great shape. Beautiful greens. Carts screens are a little slow to respond. I found them a bit obnoxious with ads and messages to repair divots and cart path only banners that slowed getting to the scorecard and hole details.
We arrived early to warm up at the driving range. From bag drop to checking in to the starter, everyone was super friendly and helpful. We played in March and were pleasantly surprised at the condition of the fairways and greens! All were already in top notch condition! Beautiful course and well worth the money! We appreciated the course Marshall’s efforts to keep the pace of play moving. Can’t wait to play this course again!
