Great course

If you like great golf, this course is a must do. Great greens and fairways. Tighter than resort play with smaller beautiful greens.

Played in early June 2015, the course was in relatively good condition. Nicely designed, the course is fair. The fairway was wide enough and was a pleasure to hit approach shots from. Roughs were not thick and reasonably wide in most holes. Lots of large trees, yet no vegetation under the trees. The greens were well designed and in good... More

Played Island West today and it took almost 5 1/2 hours. There were no Marshal's and the attitude was marginal at best. I host 3 to 4 groups twice a year for Hilton Head golf trips. The Brown courses had always been on our play list. Today that ended. Find any other course to play.

We just played island west during a guys golf weekend. This was our last day and was chosen because of the location and we thought the conditions and pace of play. While the course was in fair condition the pace of play and lack of marshals was so bad I actually stopped playing in the middle of the round because... More

This was the first of three Brown management golf courses we played whilst I visited an old friend from days gone by. There is a fourth, Pinecrest, which we did not play. It was probably the easiest and least expensive of the courses we played. We were teamed up with another twosome so it made for a nice experience. The... More

you really need to play this course more than once to get the read and the forced carries on some holes. the first round will cost you a few ball, but the greens ran true and it is a great play for the money

Two couples played and we were able to get a Veteran's discount so that the four of us played for $124.00! We were met at the bag-drop by a nice gentleman who helped with clubs and directed us to the pro shop. The pro was busy but friendly and we were able to go off early because they were ahead... More

Played there today - weather was great 70-75 degrees, no wind, the course was in great shape, the pin positions were reasonable but the greens are still challenging. Was happy that the players ahead and behind us moved along well. Rates are ..very.. reasonable.
