Play all the heritage golf courses over the last week. Mostly 10/10 except today a horrendous experience at Port Royal Planters Row to many faults to mention you see them all in over 5 hrs. Please play any course but not this one.

Have golfed all 3 PR courses numerous times. Thought it time to write a review! Conditions are excellent. Greens roll well and consistent. Tee boxes well kept. Layout of Robbers Row is challenging enough for good golfers but open enough for those of us who enjoy seeing the entire course haha. Nice touch with the historical info as you go... More

Lots of history on this course. You play where the old town once stood, they have a historic plate to show you. The course is challenging and has great scenery. Well worth the visit if you like golf

Very nice course with a hint of history. The fairways were in very good shape for this early in the season. The greens were soft and nice. There are Civil war markers on the course describing incidents and the history of the area.

Dear Bob P, Thank you for your feedback to your round at Robber's Row! We're fortunate to have a golf course with the history that Robber's Row has, as parts of it sit on the original Main Street of the island during the Civil War.

This is one nice course! My buddies and I played it yesterday in off and on rain, stopped for lunch and finished off in a mild drizzle. Well maintained, interesting, senior tees made it scoreable if that's a word. It's a resort course with a fine dining room, no need to go anywhere else for lunch, cold draft beer a... More

Played 2 times while vacationing in Hilton Head. Nice course. The one downfall every year that we play, there is the gentleman on the course wanting you to put up money to see if you can get on the green. I believe this holds up play and is a nuisance.
