When severe weather was expected on our golf now arranged date of play , the management graciously allowed us to change the date of play - conditions were great the facility including the shop and dining areas as well as practice areas are well kept and the wild life and vistas attractive as well- friendly helpful staff every where- but again like at other courses a ranger that didn't seem to care about pace of play! Sometimes we wonder why they are there at all! It's still a wonderful place to play golf and easy to enjoy staying for happy hour and enjoying southern hospitality!

Enjoyable day on the course. Signed up as a single was paired up with another twosome. The staff was very accommodating fitting me into their busy schedule. One of the nines was closed due to damage to the greens which caused the other two courses to be a bit crowded.

Fee was supposed to include range balls......we had to pay for them. Took 2 hours 20 minutes to play front nine. Foursome in fronti of us had already let one group play through, however marshalls seemed unconcerned. We finally just skipped a hole and drove around them on back nine. Would recommend Port Royal instead.

Seemed like a nice course. The driving range was OK at best. The course itself was pretty decent, although I kept getting bad lives in the fairway. The greens to take a bit to get used to. By the time I got used to their slow speed, my room is done. Still… Not a bad round for the price

I had played Atlantic Dunes at Sea Pines Resort the day before, so my review is probably colored by playing a much better course with better amenities and service the day before. If you're looking for a quick nine in between rounds at better courses on HHI, then this course might be for you. The conditions weren't great, but the course had received a lot of rain the day before, so that might have had something to do with it. Staff was pretty friendly, but pace of play was horrible. I ended waiting 10 minutes on every hole. You get what you pay for at this course and as long as you don't expect too much in the way of course management or amenities, you'll have a good time.

Course very close to beach. Lots of families staying close by, Two groups of three in front , knew each other and ended up playing as a 6! No intervention by course rangers. Took 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes. Course very average but it was hot and the summer I imagine its in better condition in the spring and fall.

Golf course had a great layout! The bad news is the outside starter in the am was a real toolbag. Course conditions could have been much better for $80 per player. We won't play here again.

From the rangers, to the starters, to the front desk cashier, the staff was incredibly rude. Besides from the slow greens, the course played well. So avoid interactions with the angry and aggressive staff and focus on the course.
