Great course. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in excellent shape.

A great value.

Afternoons in August mean humidity and thunderstorms.

Lots of water out on the course. Make sure you have a towel with you as my hands were drenched with sweat.

Restaurant a bit dirty and could use a deep cleaning.

Overall fun day with my family

The course was in excellent shape. The course was challenging but fair. Very enjoyable and fun round. Would definitely recommend it and will definitely return it. Played five courses the week I was here and this was definitely my favorite.

I played another course in Hilton head on Saturday for $80. Course was in great shape (probably better than the other), greens rolled well and had gps for easy calculation. Was a great course to play on my week long stay!

I have upgraded this course to a 5 Star....it is in superb condition, the greens are smooth and roll out and the course is well manicured. The only drawback is players who do not rake bunkers. The bunkers are firm -- but I like them that way. I play a number of mid-range (price) courses in this area and this is as good as any -- and better than most.

HHN has always been one of my favorites in the HHI area, mainly due to how great a condition the course is always in. That was still the case, although the greens had not fully recovered from aeration and top dressing recently. I played as a single and was behind a threesome that was dreadfully slow and would not invite me to play through. My disappointment with the staff was the starter mentioned to me before I started that he observed them on hole 1 and didn't like their pace of play and would keep an eye on it. But, I never saw a ranger after I started. I realized as a single I could be waiting, but when I stopped in at the turn to complain this group was overly slow, they said they don't give rain checks if it isn't raining, there were others starting on the front, and according to their high tech GPS controlled golf carts, the threesome was meeting the time guidelines. I finally just skipped a hole on the back to get by these guys. BTW, watch out for the high tech golf carts. If you go where they think you shouldn't, you get a warning buzz and if you go a foot further, the cart will stop.

Great course! Gorgeous driving range and putting greens. The layout was fun, the GPS was a great added benefit. The greens were sanded, some heavily, and I'm ok with that - but I'm looking forward to playing it once the greens have fully recovered. Lunch was good and prices were decent. I will return!

Hands down the best play in Bluffton for the public courses. Old South maybe a little closer then some people think but for me it's not close. This is always my favorite course and if you catch a deal it is more then worth the money. We had the course to ourselves besides one kid who played through and disappeared soon after. How can you beat a cart that tells you everything you need to know as far as distances and pin placements. You are wasting your money on a range finder at this course. It even gives you accurate distances of your drives and all. PLEASE DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A HOUSING DEVELOPMENT. I don't care how tempting it is, I beg that they keep this course open. Definitely recommend to get out and play it while you can because who knows what will happen with it.

I trusted the reviews of others to book this course for our threesome and the consensus is right on: this is a super choice for golfers on holiday in Hilton Head. For a public course with a lot of play, its condition was outstanding. Wide, manicured landing areas off the tee diminish the intimidation from the pines. Fun layout with a variety of hole designs and angles. You will run through the bag as the round progresses. Greens rolled fair and true. We expected a good course and underestimated the experience by far. Outstanding staff, quick pace of play, fine round of golf. Strong recommend.

Technically, I guess, this is an "off the island" course. Not matter, I stay on the "heel" section of the island, and it still takes only 15 minutes to get the course. It's a 15 minutes well-spent, in my opinion.

The layout here is really good. A nice mix of par4s (most are in the 350-380 range, with a couple of 400+ yard ones). The par 3s are challenging without being ridiculously long.

The teeboxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens were in perfect condition.

We play here every year during vacation. We'll be back next year!
