Old South is a very fun, challenging course. Appealing to advanced or beginning players alike. The staff at Old South is outstanding. From the time you arrive until the time you levee the course you are always made to feel welcome. Fantastic!

The surroundings and architecture are very pleasing. Staff we interacted with were very helpful and friendly. However, was disappointed with the conditioning, especially the greens which were extremely shaggy, splotchy and slow. Over-seeding apparently happened back in August but I would have hoped that they...More

Over seeding requires cooler temperatures than we have in summer and it was done two weeks ago. As the new grass grows in conditions will be somewhat less than perfect but that should resolve itself soon when maintenance can mow the new growth lower. We...More

We played this course in late October. The new growth from recent overseeding had not taken yet, which was especially evident in green conditions - slow, shaggy and bumpy. However, the layout was interesting; the designer made good use of the earth, with lots of...More

We are glad you came back! And appreciate your comments. The golf course is fun to play with great views. It’s too hot for the bugs to be a nuisance so you were able to avoid them.

Nce place. Very playable with some excellent views. I really enjoyed the course. Conditions could be improved some, but with the over-saturation of courses in Bluffton/Hilton Head, many struggle financially, and it is hard to keep them "perfect".
