My wife and son and I played this course on our next to last day in Hilton Head, May 15, 2015. The course was in great shape and provided a very unique layout. We especially appreciated the 5 tee boxes which made for a great golfing experience for each of us, with my wife getting a very fair shake on... More

I'm local. I belong to a private club so I don't play the public courses often, but for the quality and the money (check GolfNow.com) this is one of the best courses in the entire Hilton Head area. The front 9 is relatively open, but you'll be tested on the back. Might want to buy the course book for a... More

Played there just before Memorial Day weekend. The course was in good shape overall however the greens were really slow. I figured they must have aerated earlier in the month and were letting them grow. Other than that, the layout was fine although I didn't care for the 2 island fairway holes.

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.
