Course is in very good condition. Fairways lush and green, sand is nice and greens look good. Greens read true but are considerably slower than most on the island. Overall a good experience but look for deals.

It's worth playing while in Hilton Head especially if you are buying more than one green's fee. I took my three teenage boys to play and it was great. The greens held. Alligators loom. Food was tasty. The "island" hole was memorable. It was beautiful playing along the sound. I've played a half dozen courses on Hilton Head and this... More

Design was pretty good but greens were very, very slow. This could have been from the overseeding of rye over the bermuda. Maybe it would have been better later in the season. We were there late March 2015.

You are correct in your assumption that the transition of the over seeded rye grass is what has the greens slower than normal. Our severely delayed warm spring weather is also a factor this year but there is no way around Mother Nature. We just have to live with her! We hope overall you enjoyed your day and play Old...

Plays into the water so try to play at high tide. Difficult but not crazy hard. Coupons to save on green fees in local golf guide. Recommend.

We had a foursome on a Monday afternoon. Beautiful day. Lots of osprey to watch and Gators as well. Tricky par threes and nice views of the marsh. Not too far off island to get to. Worth the drive. Good pace even though busy. Friendly staff.

First time to SC for us. Golfed Old South Sunday 2/8/15, gorgeous February day. I'm a newer golfer, my husband is quite good. The course worked for the both of us, some holes substantially less yardage for red tees than others. Booked tee time thru Golf Now and received a good savings.

Old South treats you like royalty when you get out your car and the check in is a very nice experience. The course is challenging and fair. The greens are a little tricky in some places

Located just off Hilton Head Island, this is a challenging links course. If you love hitting shots over marsh lands, you will have the opportunity on several holes here. The par 3 signature 8th hole is to an island green (knowing your clubs is an absolute must on this hole). Elsewhere pot bunkers will meet you at several greens. The... More

This is an absolutely beautiful golf course located right off of Hilton Head Island. The course is a links style course with the first 7 holes being fairly wide open and then it becomes more of a shot makers course. There are many holes on the marsh and are as picturesque as any holes I have ever seen at the... More
