Attraction details
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.

“My favorite Hilton Head course”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

I've been coming to Hilton Head since 1978, and since Oyster Reef opened it has been my favorite....just "fits my eye" - especially the Par 3s and 5s. This was my first Wintertime visit, and I thought condition was very acceptable and the greens putted very true; my big complaint is that the cart paths (we were playing 90-degree rule) have really gotten "long in the tooth", making for a back-stressing ride. Personnel - terrific - definitely make you feel welcome and seem to go out of their way to be friendly.

“Worth a round”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Solid golf course nothing to complain about. Course condition did not stand out but was certainly not bad either. Staff was friendly and pleasant. A plethora of holes carved through the pines kept my interest.

“Best of The Week.”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

I played 5 rounds on Hilton Head this week. This was the pick of the litter. Even though the course had been over seeded and we could only "ride the rough", the course was fun to play and challenging. After playing the course on Saturday, I decided to replay the course again today. Very enjoyable round. Great staff. Will definitely play again.

We’re please that you enjoyed playing the course both days and that it met all of your expectations. Our staff wants to make everyone’s round memorable and give them a reason for wanting to play at Oyster Reef again. Rees Jones, the course designer, did a wonderful of winding the course through the Plantation and giving players a different look on each hole.
Thank you again for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent visit to Oyster Reef Golf Club.

“Best conditions in early November”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We had the course to ourselves with an early tee time, and they had not yet overseeded and the greens were the best on the island among 4 others we played.
We were told to tee off whenever we were ready, but then they were working to make us play faster, but we really had no one behind us. Was a little annoying, but I appreciate the movement to make play faster. I just think they were timing us off the wrong tee time.
I had played this course in the past, still a good track and if in great condition like this, was a highlight for us.

“Great Golf Course”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We certainly enjoyed our golf round at Oyster Reef Golf Club. We were matched with another twosome who had played the course previously. They helped us with the lay of the course, even suggested the photo spot overlooking the ocean. What a great day and we got up close to the alligators that love to suntan on the edges of the lakes.We will certainly golf this course again. Our hotel was great in the fact that they set us up with a package fee. Wonderful benefit not to have to pay full price.
