BEEN GOING HERE FOR YEARS BUT RECENT EXPERIENCE WAS AWFUL. No maintenance visible. Hitting off of fairway was like hitting off of concrete parking lot. Greens were 50% weeds. We should have said putt is good anywhere within 20 feet. Place sucks. Looks like they're going out of business.

Greens were bumpy and erratic. To be fair we agreed that all putts within 3 - 4 feet were gimmes. Edges of fairways were full of leaves and pine cones. Sand in traps was very inconsistent - a few had fluffy sand while others were like concrete beneath the top 1 inch layer. During 5+ hours at the course the only maintenance that I observe red was someone filling divots on the practice range.

Rose hill is a nice course but out of all the Brown courses it seems like a lot of cutting corners and penny pinching, meaning everything looks like its done on the cheap, while charging regular prices.

No coffee provided, club house in in dire need of upgrading, carts look like there were purchased 2nd hand, it all need to be modernized.

The Brown management group for courses in and around Hilton Head Island better get there act together. They are asking way to much for what they provide to Joe Q Public.

two things we did not appreciate:

poor organization- they let play 2 Some and single player behind sliw 4 Some instead if building 3 and 4 Somes

To much water at the tee bixes. You siply druving from mud areas

All over by far not worth the money

I enjoyed the layout of the course but did not like the fairways or conditions of the greens. I live in Michigan where golf in March is at best spotty, especially early in the month. Even our least enjoyable ie boring courses are generally in better shape this time of year. The greens at Rose Lake had strange patchy tuffs of grass and bare spots that made putting a challenge. Par threes were great and again the design of the holes was well done. I will assume that the course will improve with the coming of spring, but the only thing good about when I played is it was the least expensive in the area and it wasn't snowing.

Called the pro shop prior to playing and asked about conditions re - full use of carts, 90 degree on some or all holes, cart path only, etc - as 2 members have difficulty in walking 18.

Arrived and found 90 degree rule which was ok, but the conditions of the greens was terrible as they had been recently treated. Greens were rough and had been sprayed. That was never mentioned. For that reason I wouldn't go back. Hilton Head had lots of courses beyond those of the Browm Group.

This could be a great course. Unfortunately it is rundown. The greens are full of weeds and have some bare patches. The tees have very little grass. The sand is mostly clay with a light dusting of sand. Very scenic and with some care, could be a gem.

While the price was great, the course was in very poor condition. Greens were full of weeds, uneven grass and the fairways were dry and in need of repair. The traps were in good shape and consistent. Tees were also dry and in need of care. The staff was excellent and friendly. We have played there a number of times but the quality has deteriorated. Too bad as it is an interesting layout.

My husband and I love this course. We are average golfers and find this course just perfect for our abilities. There is just enough water to make it challenging but not frustrating, the fairways have nice roll, and the greens are tricky enough to make you think. Most of all, the staff is always nice and friendly. Hi Adam!
