Great course well maintained

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

This a very nice golf course. Five tees to accommodate any skill player; well maintained, reasonably priced. But it is short on amenities -- little water on the course, no towels on carts, signs insisting that any thing to eat or drink must be purchased from the dining room. For a fairly hefty fee of $60-70, I would expect a... More

Thank you for playing golf at Old South. We usually do have a beverage cart on the course each day for refreshments, however you may have played on a day when there was not one due to weather or a staffing issue. The clubhouse is easily accessible after the first five holes and then again between holes 9 and 10... More

Beautiful wetlands setting is the signature of Old South. Close to Hilton Head Island and easy to reach. Booked on GolfNow and got a good rate. Friendly reception from staff. Fairways and greens in good condition.

If your are planning to golf in Hilton Head, you must drive off the island and play here. I have been enjoying this course for 15 years.

My wife and I played Old South yesterday and everything about this place was first rate. The course was in excellent condition although some of the tee blocks need to be levelled. It's a good test of your golf game with a number of forced carries over the salt marsh so pick your tee block wisely. The proshop staff, the... More
