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

Dear Ben, We appreciate your feedback about your recent visit to Robber's Row, thank you for playing golf with us. Recent weather has forced us to keep the greens slightly longer than normal to maintain the turf's health as we've had a very hot August with little rainfall.

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.

Dear billyjeanne, Thank you for coming to play golf with us and sharing your feedback about Robber's Row! While our trees help define Robber's Row, I certainly understand how challenging they make certain shots. We are in the process of trimming trees each season to make sure we keep and improve the playability of the golf course and hope that... More

Played twice with my daughters. Sunday morning was leisurely and enjoyable. Tuesday was more crowded and felt pressured by pace of play. Well maintained and beautiful course. Helpful staff located and mailed a club my daughter misplaced on the course.

Played as a guest of a member with a friend playing the course for the first time. They played white tees; I played blue tees. My friend loved the course and can't wait to play again. I always enjoy this course, particularly the diversity of the holes. Greens slowly recovering from early June aeration... slow and bumpy. Rest of the... More

During our visit to Hilton Head Island we decided to play golf and the best availability was Port Royal. I called their booking service and received less than cordial conversation with one of their "customer service" representatives. However all was fine when we arrived at the course and found a golf pro shop which was very nice and accommodating. The... More

I played Robbers Row last weekend for the 1st time in 3+ years. The course conditions were the best that I have ever seen. Even better, was that they recently cut back many of the trees lining the fairways. It really opened the course up. I can't wait to go back!

Robbers Row is a very forgiving course. The fairways tend to be narrow, but if you hit them straight, you will be happy! Some sand traps ,but not terrible. The greens were not too fast, and the breaks looked worse than they were! No waiting at all!
