Terrific course in a gorgeous setting. The staff is extremely courteous. The Grill is only open for lunch but has amazing food. we were staying at the adjacent INN AT PALMETTO BLUFF and we prefer the food at the gold course. Kudos to Sheba who took care of us!

Really beautiful and challenging, but still playable for a couple with very different handicaps (22 and 31).

I love courses that allow you to drive it a little offline and still allow you to score well. The caddies we had were awesome, thanks Billie and Waylen, sorry if I didn't spell those names right.

I think we had the only foursome on the course while we played. Rented clubs from the clubhouse and received a great set. Took a caddie out with us and was very courteous above and beyond what was required of him. Course was in great shape and was a very peaceful, relaxing game.

I got to play this course over the weekend and was impressed. I am a 5 handicap and found the course challenging but it didn't beat me up. Best bermuda greens I ever putted.

I've played top golf courses all over the country and this is one of the best. The layout is spectacular and the views of the lowcountry are stunning. The fairways are wide but the greens are well guarded, undulating and very quick. The staff was very friendly and our two caddies, Billy and Skip were very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging....

Immaculate and stunning. One of the nicest courses I've seen. Terrific staff and challenging course, ranks up there with some of the finest in the country and the beauty is that it's restricted to it's limited membership and those staying at the resort.

seating was a little crowded, but the food was great. Crowded because it is a favorite of the neighborhood.

We played a foursome on a hot day after a rainstorm. There was no one else on the course and it was in fairly good shape. The range folks, pro shop and starters were very hospitable and welcoming. The course had some debris due to the storm, but was in really good shape. It was like having our own course!... More
