Course conditions very good and greens pretty fast but fair. Staff there is very friendly & accomodative . we had a tee time but we were delayed and they gave an adjusted later tee time to accommodate us. Good value for the money but they do want You to move fast, suggesting our foursome should finish in 4 hrs and when you are running behind you get a warning on the GPS on the cart. The GPS provided on the cart is something that similar priced courses in the HH area do not provide and is very nice. THe course has some nice features and some challenging holes and the grass just off the fairway(Brillo. Pad like grass that some pros call " I'll. Kill ya"). The latter allows the ball to drop to the bottom and it is hard to find( sometimes you need to step on it to find it) much less hit it. You need to stay on the fairway!

My two sisters and I had a wonderful round at HHNational yesterday. The course is in very good shape from the tee box to the green. The fairways are wide and forgiving and the greens are in excellent shape. Clearly players repair their ball marks. We played from the red tees which made for good scores but we will probably move back when we play next as the total yardage was only 4600. However, that will add 1000 yards...

The staff is warm and welcoming and the clubhouse is nicely laid out.

It was a perfect day for golf, sunny with a slight breeze, warm. Course was in perfect shape too. Lush fairways, greens that made you think twice before putting. Good layout, club selection important on a couple of holes. Not difficult, but not the easiest. Definitely be back for more. Staff friendly and helpful. Didn't go into restaurant.

HH National is a great course for the money. It's nice to play a course that does NOT go through a housing development - all nice and green.

The course requires a fair amount of accuracy on your drives with some lateral water or pines. The course is not too long and greens are a good size. Fairways and greens were in good condition.

Definitely worth playing - which I usually do when visiting HHI.

Course was in excellent shape, as usual. I try to play here every time on the island. Greens are great, fairways are great. If you can only play one course while at Hilton Head, this should be it. Also helps to catch a good deal on Golf Now. I highly recommend this course.

Greens ran true and fast. Easy to short side yourself with raised greens. I rated this course a 5 but it could have been a 1 based on pace of play. Observant ranger noticed our group was behind a group of 12. After playing 1st hole there were still 8 people on 2nd tee. We were allowed to start on back and played at a leisurely pace of 4 hours.
