Played in the early morning and finished in under 3 hours as a single. Very friendly staff. As for the course conditions, I think some of the reviewers are probably used to pristine courses. No, it's not pristine, but I have played much worse. Fairways were ok. Some greens were undergoing work, but let's be fair. Where can you play anywhere on Hilton Head for $25? This is a fantastic value. I actually only had 28 putts, so the greens were not that bad. Certainly not as bad as some of the reviewers described. Give the course a try. I almost cancelled after reading some of the reviews. Glad I didn't. Would certainly play it again.

I was discouraged to see the lack of attention to caring for the greens and fairways. A few months ago, the course was beautiful. Now, there has been a total disregard for the maintenance and care of the course.

Disappointing, even for the dollar.

Based on reviews we were dubious about this course but the price was certainly right for the otherwise pricey greater Hilton Head area. Easy check-in with a very pleasant person in the pro shop. Electric carts were clean and drove nicely, although somewhat the worse for wear. Course was in surprisingly good condition. Not exactly Augusta-type fairways, but we've played worse. Greens had been dressed previous day but rolled true even if a bit slow. Layout of the course is mostly flat and not too different from hole-to--hole. We were here from New England for our first round since last October with the purpose simply to begin tuning up for the Spring that eventually will reach our area. So the layout worked fine for us, but wouldn't challenge every golfer. Clubhouse was awful- not sure what the plans are but windows and door frames were so dirty, and there was so much trash and old supplies piled on the back porch that I would have hesitated to order any food. Pro shop has very minimal stock and NOTHING for women. All personnel we encountered were helpful and polite. All in all, we had a good time, enjoyed our round, and would return.

The course has potential it was a good challenge but it needs lots of work, we decided to take 3 to 4 foot gimmies, joked about taking 18 stokes off because greens are so bad.

Fairways were quite hard, even with the downpour they had the night before.

The course is well layed out. The greens are not good. Sand traps are well maintained. Staff is too accommodating. We had a bad experience where the starter permitted a twosome to go on the course with one golf bag and three clubs. The elderly twosome cut in front of us on a par three hole. It took over five minutes for them to tee off and we finally skipped the hole because they couldn't get on the green. Also, when we made the turn, we ordered sandwiches in the clubhouse and it took us 45 minutes to get back on the course. Never had that experience before. We complained to the starter and he didn't seem to care about the twosome.

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.
