Overall, Island West was not a bad experience. The course was a little wetter than I would have expected, and a couple of the greens were a little rough. It was in food shape otherwise, and good cost for HH area. Watch out for the gators!

I've played here several times (once per trip) over the past 6 or 7 years. We always liked it. Good conditions, friendly staff, nice layout, not terribly hard as a starting course for a rusty golfer. This year, however, conditions were very poor. Greens were very uneven (even fast/slow on different parts of the same green). Grass thin, mudholes everywhere.... More

The course is nice. Great practice area, although the putting area is closed temporarily while they are re-seeding. Picturesque holes with nice landscaping. Teaching staff is excellent.

I like the layout of the course but there was a hail storm the night before we played which left debris on the fairways and greens. On a day with better conditions, the course would probably be fun considering the doglegs and bunkers to play around. A good course to play for the cost.

Really great golf course. Might be a little too hard for most golfers, lots of marshes and narrow fairways. If you are straight you should be ok.

Island West is a bit of a drive if you are on Hilton Head, but they have an excellent facility. Golf prices are some of the best around and the course rarely feels overcrowded. They also do not overcharge for beer (8 cans for $16) which we really like. Every hole is a challenge and course is well maintained.

You'd have to go far to match the friendly staff, and excellent course found here. The clubhouse is delightful, as is the bar / grill and outdoor seating to enjoy the 19th hole. The course is a delight.

We played 9 holes here beginning at 11:20 am for $35.00 for two with cart. I liked the GPS which clearly identified all the hazards and distances to them. The course wasn't crowded so we easily completed the nine holes in 2 hrs. Except for some of the traps, the course was in great shape. I would definitely play here... More

course is nice but... employees are crabby about being a slow golfer... EXPECT YOU TO HAVE A 4 PAR ON ALL HOLES OR SOMETHING. we let everyone in front of us..though. Snack bar needs healthier choices. ..perhaps salads, fresh fruit, etc...better than sandwiches and hot dogs...some of us are gluten free.
