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.

Clubhouse and staff were nice and accommodating. The course condition is in decent shape, a few bare spots on the fairway and around the bunkers. Don't feel the course is worth the regular rate; however as a hot deal it is. There was no beverage cart nor a single water cooler on the course which was really inconvenient. Fun and challenging course overall though.

Well maintained and thoughtfully laid out.

Fairways were ample, but tight when needed. Strategic thinking is required as the greens have real approach areas that reward good tee shot placements.

Found the greens a bit slow on the day I played. Not quite croquet, but almost.

To be fair, a light sandy top dressing had been applied. Zoyah grass is great in the fairways....ball sits up nice.

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.
