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.

This is a first rate course. I was visiting a friend in Savannah and had called a golfing buddy from where we play in Northern Virginia. He was staying down there for the first two months of 2015 so I contacted him and we played Robber's Row. it seemed like everyone at the club wanted to play Robber's Row. Do... More

I am an older golfer with a high handicap and I played the black tees. This made is much more friendly and easier for a senior golfer. The course was well maintained and in excellent conditions. The staff was friendly and focused on making our experience a pleasant one. This course does not "turn" at the clubhouse so you should... More

One of three courses at Port Royal. Narrow fairways, sand bunkers, water hazards, & fairway waste bunkers make this course a challenge. Keeping your drives & woods in the fairway an absolute necessity. Four tee boxes makes the course fun if you know your skill level. Course is flat & well maintained. Staff is excellent and personable. My only negative... More

We did not play all three courses but did enjoy this course. The price was right. Course was in good shape. No caddy needed. You cannot ride your golf cart down all the fairways, but they are marked when you cannot. One club house for all three courses. Worth stopping by for a round of golf.

Played 4 courses this week. All well maintained. We started with Barony on Monday and this course was so much better. The greens were in great shape and all the trees were trimmed back. Yes it has narrow holes but would much prefer narrow to always having to work around the numerous huge bunkers in Barony.

Our second day at Port Royal, and it was a disappointment vs. the previous day on the Barony Course. Robber's Row is a tougher course but I didn't think the course was in very good shape. It is a slow time, right after the end of summer, but the greens were in awful shape and very difficult to get a... More

All in all this was a good round. Course was in great shape, even for it being late in the season. Good challenging course, but I played 3 courses that were better for the same price the week we were there. Greens were cut really long, which made reading putts pretty tough. I agree that there are many holes where... More

Course in reasonable condition with reasonable rates. Also close to the Westin which was of benefit to us. Never played a course with so much stuff hanging over the fairways. Not off to the side, in the fairway 20-40 yds. off the blue tee. Have not prefected the shot needing a 30 fade so close to the tee box.
