Nestled back in a far away corner at the Hilton Head, Port Royal Golf Club has a fantastic restaurant named "Robber's Row." Chief Eric, is new to Robber's Row but not to the Island.

Of the three courses on Port Royal Plantation, this is our favorite. It is well maintained and challenging. The staff in the pro shop was great. Our tee time had been put on the incorrect day by reservations, but they went out of their way to accommodate us. Bag guys were very helpful and fun to chat with. Starter informative.... More

Hi gang, Here we are at Port Royal's Robber Row golf course, number 5 course of my stay. After playing some less-than-satisfying courses ( Indigo Run, Old South ) I opted to finish out my golf at the courses next to my "plantation", the resort at Island Links. They have Planters Row, Robbers Row and Barony, all 18 hole courses.... More

Some of the holes on Robber's had signage examining the historic nature of the course name and of the ramparts built during the civil war and still existing. The course was in good shape although some holes have trees hanging over the fairway making for a tighter shot than initial thoughts might suggest. We received a cheaper rate because of... More

The course is in top notch condition. I don't mind paying the required cart fee when it is this nice. We have playing privileges from our timeshare so the cost is only the cart fee. If we did not have this privilege we could not play here.The atmosphere of Port Royal is a bit pretentious for a duffer like myself.... More

This golf course can be used by the public. It is well maintained and a challenge to many. The cart paths wind in and around the homes of Port Royal. Watch out for the alligators!
