Shipyard Golf Club offers three nine hole courses, which can be played in three eighteen hole combinations. Each course has its own merits and difficulties, with 25 water hazards coming into play throughout the majority of the holes.Clipper Course: With plenty of sand and water hazards, the Clipper course may be the most difficult of the nines. This George W. Cobb design requires a good long game and a soft touch around the greens.Galleon Course: These original nine holes of Shipyard Golf Club meander through large oaks and tall pines. Accurate placement of approach shots into heavily guarded greens is necessary on the Galleon course.Brigantine Course:Alligators sun themselves along these scenic, water hazard filled nine holes of the Brigantine course. With slight dog-legs and well-placed bunkers, this course requires shot-making and a good short game.

I played this course in the heat of July (over 100 degree index) so was the hottest round of golf I've played in a long time. That being said the fairways and greens were in very good shape. The course played well but there are...More

Just played 18 holes at Shipyard Golf Club. The course is in very nice condition. The greens are a bit slow, but very true. The rangers are friendly and even bring you ice water and discount coupons to their new restaurant, The Brickyard Pub. Shipyard...More

Very disappointing round at Shipyard! Greens recently aerated and heavily sanded (which at least they warned of) but fairways in poor condition with lots of sand too. Workers did not stop or get out of way as our foursome "played thru" them, routinely riding equipment...More
