Played on a very warm day, we were a two ball squeezed in between two 3 balls but the pace was very good. Bit of traffic at the tenth so we joined up with the group ahead who had become a two ball, they were excellent company

Bag drop not particularly friendly but that said , it was the only very minor down side, we had a wonderful round of golf on a great course

Great course love the layout. For a southern course I would call it mildly forgiving. Still a great challenge and I always look forward to playing it. The course is always in good condition and I especially like their greens which are well kept and really roll true.

The course is in great shape from tee to green. The greens are smooth and rolling extremely well for this time of year. The staff is very friendly as always and always are happy to assist you. I also enjoy that there are no houses around so there is no need to cringe if you slice a tee shot. This is also a great time of year to play since its not busy season. The pace of play is better than say July due not as many people in the area.

On a personal note, this was the first golf course I played when I moved to Hilton Head in 2001. I am deeply saddened to hear that they are trying to rezone the area for condo, houses, restaurants etc. Through the years this course has been such a great place to play. Even after moving from South Carolina, I have tried to play here every time I am in town.

Although nothing has been finalized, play here while you can. This course will be missed!

I love this course. It's beautifully laid out, designed to be challenging for better players while not intimidating for others. It's peaceful and relaxing, with no houses, condos, villas, whatever surrounding you. Just a gorgeous example of natural low country nature. The greens were excellent-- as usual. HHN has done a fine job of cleaning up after Hurricane Matthew -- some still remains to be done but that's only in the woods, we'll out of any intended line of play. Again, I love this course. Clearly in my top 5 within the entire HHI vicinity.

We play this course every winter when we visit HH; it is one of our favorites. There are no tricked up holes & it is women friendly. I would suggest playing while you can because the course & greens are in great shape. Sadly, it is scheduled to become a housing development in the next several years:(

Great Golf course in a perfect shape. The Navigation System at the golf cart makes it easy for distance to hazzards and the green. The staff was very friendly. They let me start from tee # 10. So I could play the 18 holes without anyone in front of me. Finished in just 3 h. Great experience on a cold day (50 F).
