Dear Michael P, Thank you for your feedback on Robber's Row! We've got a unique story to tell with the course being on the land where both Confederate and Union troops spent time during the Civil War. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the story and we hope to see you again! Best, Ben More

Played the course on June 20th. Took advantage of the online reduced rate of $70 for 18 with a cart. It was my first Hilton Head golf experience so I don't have much to compare it to in regards to other local courses. I thought the clubhouse and grounds were very attractive and similar to what I had envisioned of... More

This course is in incredibly rough shape. I don't think the owners take any pride in its upkeep outside of the fairways which were in acceptable condition. The "greens" were terrible with some inexplicably having what looked like mini sand traps on it and tee boxes were on slopes. Spend your golf money elsewhere in HHI

We chose this golf course due to it being part of a package through Marriott resorts. The course was very good in terms of difficulty in challenge. The problem was the greens were in the worst shape I've ever seen. The starter told us that four holes were in distress. That was an understatement. It seems that 10 of the... More

This is an excellent course at a great price (find a coupon). I went with my dad, brother, and picked up a solo. We all a lot of fun. The course was well maintained and the staff was very friendly. I would play here again.

As a single digit handicapper I have to admit this was the worst experience EVER and we play A LOT of golf around the country with our share with ups and down. This "golf course" should be shut down.

Fun golf on Hilton Head island. Not overpriced and challenging enough for all to enjoy. Reservations are needed.

The facility was beautiful with friendly staff. The course is challenging but fun. Greens not too fast but a lot of role on the fairways. A little brown but to be expected for April. Over all great day of golfing even though my fiancé beat me.
