All my expectations were met on my round of golf on the immaculate and very challenging ocean course. It was truly amazing and would recommend it for all hackers. While expensive, it is worth a lifetime of memories and getting par on several holes including 17th par 3 will never be forgotten. Just hope it is not to windy when... More

The Ocean Course was home to the 2012 Ryder's Cup Championship, Rory McElroy's 1st Major win. I haven't played the course but my son has and says it is magnificent. My favorite is the Ocean Course Club House. Wonderful restaurant overlooking the ocean and 18th green. Food is great and service is first class. The Ryder Bar is a wonderful... More

After a round of golf, my husband and I had a late lunch at the Ryder Cup Bar. Had the Low Country Grill Cheese Sandwich. What an incredible sandwich! Palmetto cheese, fried green tomatoes, country ham grilled on jalapeno corn bread...delicious!

My friends and I played this course as the highlight of a weekend golf trip. It was, in a word, unbelievable. We played on a sunny day, teeing off at 9:00 a.m. The wind picked up during the round, but nothing too extreme; it was a typical summer beach day. The course was immaculate. The practice range was also fantastic,... More

Worth the price of admission for the last four holes alone. Obviously, its very well maintained and the customer service is over the top. The caddies know the lines, trust them. Finally, try to play when it's not so windy, its a very tough course when the wind is up.

Played with three of my best friends and was just blown away. This course is rated as the most difficult course in the US. We played forward and with the guidance of two great caddies, Sean and Hugh we had a memorable day. A bucket list item checked off

Played the Ocean course for my birthday, the course was nice, perhaps i had been spoiled, by spending 10 days in Scotland in July, playing some stunning ocean front courses. Club house restaurant and food were fantastic, with one of the most spectacular views i have ever seen from a restaurant window. This is now the bad service. Half way... More

I walked 36 twice while here. The golf course is excellent. Greens were rough as they had been punched.

I'm a 15 handicap, and had heard the course was extremely difficult. It was difficult (I shot a 96) but I honestly expected worse! : ) The course is beautiful, but as one reviewer mentioned, no views of the ocean on the front nine, and few on the back nine. Advice: I played early morning. Play later in the day.... More
