Nestled on the grounds of a historical horse farm, Old Carolina Golf Club abounds with charm, and remains the areas only nine-hole golf course worthy of being discovered. Recently, the course won the prestigious "Best Public Golf Course" award from Lowcountry Monthly Magazine. An honor the team at Old Carolina is very proud to have earned and received.Through hard work and perseverance the course has been transformed to a beautifully manicured gem that is alive with play. Once the course received its due recognition, it wasn't long until it was filled with daily players eager to experience the newly revitalized championship links. The challenge of the design coupled with beautiful southern scenery make Old Carolina Golf Club a must play for any golfer seeking a unique playing experience.

This course is obviously closing. The greens are terrible. the fairways are a cow pasture. The rates are cheap and you will see why if you do waste your money and play there.

Apparently spending $13 doesn't even entitle you to mowed fairways or grass anywhere, including the greens. We did more course maintenance with our clubs than the ground crew does. Didn't expect much, and Old Carolina certainly delivered. The owner was rude but no worries, he...More

This place is terrible. We payed for 18 and quit after 6. I wouldn't let a cow go out on this so-called golf course. What a dump! It's too bad cause the holes could be challenging with a little water and maintenance. Do not waste...More

Would not give a single an early tee time. Was told to show up and would probably be fit in. Hard to understand why Rose Hill is so fussy when it is not a particularly good course. No thanks. Went toOld South.

This is one of the best buys on the Island. We had no trouble getting a 9:30 tee time and were able to play in about 4 1/2 hours. The greens are quite challenging. They were quick for my standards, but rolled true. You could...More

What happened to this place? I have played there several times over the years, and while not a top course, it was OK. Now it seems as though they have no ground crew or no money. The fairways, greens, even the cart path needed repair....More

Play here and your game will improve anywhere else you play. If you want pristine conditions don't play here your game isn't good enough. If you want a challenge then give it a try.

This course is in very bad condition.....and not worth the $15 we spent to pay via a Deal Saver. We played only 3 holes. I would not recommend this course to anyone!

If you are looking to play a quick 9 holes somewhere that is inexpensive this place is very suitable. We almost didn't play at all on our trip because every other place was so expensive. If you are a super serious golfer this might not...More

This club needs serious help. We were a party of 4 and only played this course because we couldn't get in anywhere else in Hilton Head. Now we know why it was available. The whole course is in poor condition particularly the greens. And the...More
