Played by myself on the 11th with no problems getting around the course. On the 12th the starter teamed me up with another senior player which made playing the course a lot better. The front nine we moved right along and finished the front nine in under two hours. We went right over to the back nine and that is when our game slowed down. We got behind a Senior foursome and had to wait a few minutes on each tee. I still think we were able to complete our round in four hours. The only problem we encountered was losing balls in the rough right off the fairways. Great two days of Golf.

Nice course layout with several doglegs but tee boxes and greens need some TLC in the form of a mower. Greens rolled well but we're hard with little divots showing. Some fairways were sparse and had lots of hard pan. Great hot dog at the turn and very friendly staff. Would play it again though for the hot deal price.

Shipyard has three separate 9's so is a good choice for a quick 9 or an 18 round. Booked last minute morning play and found the course uncrowded and in good shape. Fairways are generally wide but narrowed in places by ponds, etc. so straight shots are valued. Greens were smooth and fast, but not overly so. Save time for post round food or drinks on the enjoyable patio that overlooks the incoming play from #9 on Galleon.

Played at Shipyard for the first time on our first visit to Hilton Head Island and it was an extreme pleasure. The course features three 9 hole parts, each well layed out with degrees of difficulty equal in all 3. Great proximity to the southern end of HHI. I recommend it.

Unfortunately I played the day after heavy rains so the faiways were a littke soggy.

The greens were good once I found the right pace.

Pace of play was not good, the foursome group ahead were slower than slow and would not let us through .

The staff and especially the starter crew were very friendly and helpful.

I like the course and plan to play again, especially at the Golfnow price.

The day we played the pace of play was a little slower than we would prefer. Our foursome had to wait on every hole for threesomes in front of us. The greens were nice but slow and most of the fairways were mowed very tight. Staff very friendly. Would play again. Good value for hot deal.

The condition of the course is good at this time of year. Greens could have been mowed but they are true for putting. There could possibly more water jugs available on the course when there is no beverage cart except at the restrooms only, especially when there is none at the turn by not going by the clubhouse. There was confusion when making the turn as another group off another course turned at the same time we did so it became backed up some. I think there needs to be a little better organization on that aspect. The grill is a great place to have a drink and appetizers during their happy hour daily. The food was really good.

The courses are scenic. Not easy, not challenging.

We encountered a couple of gators, but they weren't interested in us and we left them alone.

Course is well maintained. Set in the middle of Hilton Head, the city isn't visible most of the time.

Nice course in good condition and is a nice layout. The only issue is the grass they use on the greens makes the putting very slow compared to other courses in the area. They even warn you about this in the clubhouse.

Nice course for the money. Layout is good and challenging for the first-time player. A driver can get you in trouble on some holes. Lots of water and dense woods if you miss the fairway, and the intermediate rough was high enough to hide a ball. Staff was extremely friendly. The course was a little stingy on range balls, however. The only complaint was the condition of the Titelist rental clubs ($30). Driver has a pretty good dent in it, and they looked like they've been thrown around a few times. If you're on vacation and planning to play several courses in Hilton Head, my advice is to use Shipstix to ship your own clubs. It will be less expensive and you'll play better. Overall, the course is good value for the price.

Wind blowing so hard and it was so cold trying to play was useless. Probably could have played ok if the 3 in front of us would have moved on or let us play thru. As it was we had to wait and wait and freeze to death. Course was in good shape.

Played these two nine's for the second time during the week.

Tee boxes were a little rough.

Greens played slow compared to the courses I play in the southern gulf of Florida where I reside.

Play from the tips or next box and this course will make you use all your clubs.

rough is the same Bermuda grass in Florida where it is easy to miss your ball. Really have watch tee shots.

Course plays well for all players.

Very scenic course, enjoyed playing this course twice in a week.

Great range area, chipping/sand green and putting green.

Staff was great from the bag drop, pro shop, ranger to the end where the clean your clubs.

My own opinion, we always tip at the bag drop guys everywhere we play.

Every player can find enjoyment playing at this course.
