Generous fairways and excellent firm greens. Some tees a bit scruffy, and fairway grass good to very good. Lots of straightaway par 4's that look and play alike. Pace of play was excellent, slightly less than four hours in carts. 90 degree rule for carts was a bit of a nuisance and seemed unnecessary as the fairways were pretty firm. Very friendly staff and marshals, nice informal cafe.

The course was in pristine condition. Staff very friendly, carts have gps, greens are some of the best I've played. Even though it was early spring and the weather had been dry, the course was lush green. Don't miss a chance to play if your in the area, won't be disappointed!

Ryan & Vince in particular made me appreciate the service the golf club was offering before I even went out. The amenities of the club house and range were excellent as was the food in the club house. The course is superb when you consider it's a public course and the hammer it must get.

The pace of play was good considering I played on my own as it was not possible to find a group who needed me. The greens and general condition are a credit to the greens staff. Highly recommend it to anyone.

Great course with an awesome layout. Greens were in great shape and the pace of play was great. We played on a Friday at noon and had no issues with pace. Golf carts are fitted with GPS which makes finishing yardage easy, but sometimes it will restrict you from driving in the rough at time.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone playing in Hilton head

Pay $100 on the island or drive 20 minutes to play a beautiful course for half the price. Don't get sucked in to the cheeper off island courses, pay the little bit extra and play here. The fairways are over seeded, the greens excellent, the tee boxes are grassy not dirt. Your fairway shots will be off spungy grass not dirt so your club face will not bounce and you won't skull the ball.

This course was just beautiful to play and we were so lucky to have an uninterrupted round in perfect weather. Each hole was different and we were hidden from other golfers. Millionaires' golf - definitely . Go out of your way to play this one.
