Albeit a tad dry, this track was an enjoyable experience with one of the best finishing holes in H.H. A fantastic lay out and a more 'out there' experience than most golf community designs. The greens were hard and fast and rolling true. Another Arther Hills design that I strongly recommend.

Totally relaxing day of golf! We did pause for a breath on one hole though - we found ourselves and our ball between a huge alligator in the pond and a baby one in the fairway!

After that we left all errant balls to fend for themselves, if they were in any wooded areas. Happy hunting!

solid layout. pace of play was good, as was the overall experience. course has trees down, but they are not in play and frankly I don't understand the criticism in some other reviews. good mix of holes, made more difficult by the contours (pin placements) of the greens. good value with a hot deal.

On a cool but sunny day I played with my wife., son and son in law. The course was an excellent challenge for all of us as we used three sets of tee boxes. The greens are large , fast and undulating. Unfortunately we were stuck behind a foursome of men who probably were over ther heads on a course this tough. We waited on every shot for 18 holes and the course was empty in front of them. We would definitely return and recommend the course.

Got lucky with a hot deal for $20 on a chilly windy afternoon. The free range balls to start the round were great. The range and practice green were well maintained. The fairways were great, tight turf and challenging. The greens were firm, quick and not a flat spot on them. I loved this course and played in 2.5 hours as a single.

Readily enjoyed playing the Hills course at Palmetto Hall with my son. The greens were in excellent shape and the rest of the course was in fine spring condition. The practice range was readily accessible which enabled us to limber up prior to our round. As a twosome we played 18 holes in 3 hours; we readily enjoyed the overall golf experience.

Played the Hills yesterday at Palmetto Hall. Needs a little TLC from Tees to Green, but Greens were awesome. Tough layout. Greens offer lots of undulation. Flat spots rare. Don't go for the amenities.

Buildings a little tired. but a strong foundation of a golf course. Will return to play the Cupp course

Condition of course speaks for it self. I noticed not one worker all day long working to improve the course. Tee boxes, rough, and fairways scruffy thru out the 18. The layout of holes are very nice. Pace of play was great for us, because no one going to pay what they ask for here (over priced). Management needs a wake up call.
