Enjoyed the course and the staff is wonderful! Ignore the complainers here...from what I saw most golfers at Robbers would complain about any and all courses...it's not the courses fault you can't strike a ball properly...enjoy this course!

We have been coming here and staying in Port Royal plantation for 10 years. Last year we first noticed the course(s) beginning to show signs of neglect. This year we played 9 holes on Monday and refused to return. We pay a highly discounted rate due to our time-share affiliation however, even at the discounted rate, this place is now way over-priced.

The bunkers are unkempt, the fairways and tee boxes have many bare spots. And the greens are simply awful, slow, bare, too soft. It really is a shame to see how this facility has deteriorated over the past 3 years.

They do have an EXCELLENT! practice facility with short game area, practice bunkers, and a nice wide driving range. But they charged us $15- for a bucket of balls. FIFTEEN DOLLARS??????????. I played on mini-tours for 11 years and competitively for 31 years. I have been to all manor of golf club, public, private, resort etc. and the MOST I have ever been asked to pay for a bucket of balls was $10, and those balls were virtually brand new!!!!!!!

On a positive note, the staff is friendly, the pro shop is well stocked, the restaurant is very nice. But I come to play golf, and this one needs to be skipped until they get their act together.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide a review following your recent visit to Port Royal Golf Club. The particular day you played we received a lot of rain the night before and the course was heavily saturated. Causing it to not play as well as it should have. We are currently starting to do some extensive improvements to provide our guests a better experience. Please know that we are taking your comments into consideration and we will reevaluate our price for 100 range balls. We hope that you will give us another try to experience our new improvements.

Played the course end of May. Greens had been aerated one week prior and were still extremely sandy and bumpy. Course is short, fairly tight. So, a decent challenge, but just in extremely rough shape for the "Season" and price.

We played Robbers Row on Saturday, June 8th. It was in horrific condition. We payed $45 and it would have been fairly priced at $10. The greenskeeper should be removed ASAP. Hire a kid out of high school. He would do a better job Stay away everyone

We appreciate you taking the time to provide a review following your recent visit to Port Royal Robber's Row. Your feedback is valuable to us and helps us to improve and provide a better experience to our guests. Due to a cool spring we were experiencing a slow transition to our summer grass. Our summer grass has fully grown in and we have started renovating out tee complexes. We hope that you will visit us again soon for an improved experience while playing our course.

Greens were shaggy. Rough was hard pan throughout. Tee boxes were in need of cutting. Dead leaves everywhere in April. Greens were running about a 5. So slow and shaggy. The course seems neglected.
