Disgraceful. Thought the course would be good but it was embarrassing. Tee time was set for 3:32. Cart guys made me fully aware that it was supposed to rain and that my cart was to be in by 8. It sprinkled a bit and we finished by 7:30. Cart staff was still unfriendly. Really disappointing especially being a Shipyard Owner. On another note, greens were the worst I've putted on in a long time. I've played awful courses in Niagara with far superior greens. Like the course should be embarrassed to charge what it does for twilight and be in the condition it is. Worst value on the island and I wouldn't play this garbage course for the cheapest amount of money. Get your act together!!!!

I have always liked the course, but it was getting a bit neglected and run down. This has changed big time. Lots of new sod everywhere. They are making an investment and it's paying off.

The course looks better than two weeks ago. It has a nice layout. A little dry due to the lack of rain. The golf now hot deal is a great price. Regular rates at this course I would consider to be steep.

The course was challenging, especially with the windy conditions. The fairways are patchy and need to grow in. The greens are lush and putt well. But they are a little slow.

The course is a very good layout. It has all the obstacles one would want and it rewards you for a good shot. Golf carts were excellent and clean and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. I would not call it a home away from home, but close.

Grass on the course is thin in places and had several areas recovering quite nicely from replacement sod. Considering what Hilton Head has been through with the recent hurricane, I think we have to cut all of the courses some slack.

Our foresome of avid golfers would definitely play it again.

I enjoyed my round yesterday on both the Brigantine and Galleon courses. The greens were in great shape.Fairways we're OK and traps were groomed with soft sand. My only complaint was with the tee boxes which had very sparse stubby grass. They were in poor shape.

Nice course with a great deal of water. Alligators all over the course. Many species of birds too. Tees were in poor condition. Fairways and greens were in average shape.
