Owner description: A challenging, but not threatening, golf course that features a collection of interesting holes including one with a beautiful coastal marsh as a backdrop.Carved out of 190 acres of breathtaking low country terrain, Oyster Reef Golf Club's spectacular 18-hole championship course is surrounded by winding lagoons, lush vegetation, and scenic views of the Island.Golf course architect Rees Jones used the natural landscape to create an inspiring course that combines challenge with a sense of fair play. Ranging from 7,014 yards from the championship tees, to 5,288 yards from the forward tees, the course rewards and tests golfers of all skill levels. Oyster Reef Golf Club is home to one of the most spectacular golf holes on the entire island, the Par 3 #6, which plays 192 yards from the championship tees to a green that is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Port Royal Sound.

It's a nice track, and they keep the property pretty well maintained. But you'll see photos of the ocean backing a hole. That's what you get on one or two holes. The rest of the course is interesting, and there's some challenging holes. Money reasonably well spent.

My wife and I gave Oyster Reef another chance. We played there in April this year. Although the course was immaculate and the greens were fantastic, it took a little over five hours to play. We gave it one more try in late November. Same disappointing result. The ranger said there wasn't anything he could do. Course was fantastic but with all the bunkers, especially surrounding many greens, the course just plays slow.
Other than that, course is great. Please are congenial and helpful. Super pro shop, decent restaurant.
We usually play in three hours if no one is ahead of us so five plus hours is agony.

Overall a very nice and challenging golf course. Lots of sand for lots of risk/reward play. Play conservatively and you will score well. Take a risk and it might not be so good. A great course.

We played 10/31/12 in the afternoon. It was in decent shape but so crowded that we only could get in 12 holes played. On the par 5's, there were three foursomes waiting to play. I do not recommend playing this course unless you don't mind spending all day waiting to hit. It would take about 6 hours to play a round if you are lucky. The course owners should have refunded our fees.

First played Oyster Reef 4 years ago and it was very good-the layout is excellent.Each time I have played it since the condition gets worse.Played here in March 2012 and October 2012. It is a pity but will not play it again.
