This is one of those courses where they're all bad and you're not sure it could be that bad because of where it is located. Well not only is it that bad, it's much much worse. I LOVE golf and hate unwarranted bad reviews, however, this is necessary. The front nine is worlds better than the back nine, which once you're on the course will strike you with fear. My biggest factor in reviewing a course are the greens and specifically how true they hold their line. These were the slowest greens by far in the area, even on the dead greens, and maybe the slowest I've ever played. Tee boxes were very long and so was the fairway. I was shocked that there was mown grass EVERYWHERE for two reasons. 1. how could you mow so much and not pick it up at all and 2. how could you mow that much and still have the course conditions that long. I would describe the fairway and tee boxes as a little longer than first cut rough at a championship course. Go play somewhere in savannah or bluffton for the same price and get a much better value. I spent a total of $55 on the round and a sleeve of balls and after what I just played I feel robbed and gutted. This course has a TON of potential but they need a miracle from God himself to save this course. I love the area but I will certainly not be returning to this course ever again.

PS staff was very nice on a positive note!

We played the course in early August and have had so much rain recently that when you would miss greens you could lose your ball obly being a few feet off the green because the grass was so long and thick. You could tell the crew is just overwhelmed especially with the uncharacteristic rain we have been getting. With that being said we had the course to ourselves and paid 20 dollars which if you aren't in this area 20 dollars is a steal on a goat track elsewhere. The Brown courses just need to do a little bit more to get the courses back on track. Love the layout of Rose Hill especially the back to back Par 5's on the front leading back into the club house with a fun Par 3. Just need it to be a little bit nicer conditions and I would never complain.

The course was very wet and muddy dome heavy rain two days prior to our playing. Most traps had standing water but others had not been worked on and were hard. Many of the greens were damaged from disease or weather. Fairways in addition to muddy in spots were either dying or mowed too short and were brown in many areas. The price was good and the staff was very cordial but will not play again.

My husband and I live in the area and are moderate golfers. We have played this course many time and I was shocked at the conditions since we last played here only 2 months ago. Don't bother playing even at the price they offer it is not event playable My husband and I love this course. Rough and fairways are not mowed at all greens are in AWFUL shape I am not sure what happened here it used to be one of of favorite leisurely courses. What a disappointment since a few weeks since we last played.

This is the first time I have played this course.

They haven't mowed in at least a week. I have seen first cut rough shorter than the fairways. If you get off the fairway it was easy to lose the ball.

About 1/3 of the greens had significant bare patches and on one hole they put the pin in a green patch in the middle of a larger bare patch. Go figure.

My conclusion is they really didn't want me to come back again. There are way too many courses in the area that are in good condition at similar or less price.

TERRIBLE!!! Had a good layout but the course was just in terrible shape. Last four days had rain, but rough and fairways looked like they haven't been mowed in a week. Greens were in terrible shape. Don't ven bother playing it, find another course around the area... especially when you will pay about the same price! Hopefully their new management can turn it around.... have a LONG way to go!!

Overall the course provided good value given the low price. It provides an opportunity to practice everying aspect except putting in a real game setting for a bit more than a large bucket of range balls in some locations. The big problem is the condition of the greens which are very bad.

This is very nice, relaxing course to play. Everybody is treated great, no rushing around and all at a good price. Thank you Rose Hill and Brown Golf. I hope you keep the course and the atmosphere just as it was when I played yesterday. I truly enjoyed the day.

Have played Rose Hill several times over the years. Varying the tees helps to make strategy more important. New ownership now and has been cleaned up quite nicely after the hurricane and tornados last fall. Great price on Golf Now as a Hot Deal. Only 30 minutes from center of HHI. Watch out, greens are hard and fast!
