One of my favorite courses on HHI. It is a shot makers course. On many holes you need to have your tee shot be in a certain position or you will be in jail. It also means you are not always hitting driver. Hole #2 don't hit driver. Hole #17 don't hit driver just get it to the right spot..

Such great character to the course and a lot of fun.

The greens look like the need some help some brown patches. One green in particular I want to say #4 or #5 seems like every time I have played it has in the front of the green areas that are chewed up.

Don't let that stop you, if you are not scared by the price then make a trip.

Tree lined fairways require hitting drives that give a player small areas to hit to.Makes for some interesting 2nd shots.Greens recently aerated but we're recovering well.Looking forward to playing it many more times.

First time to play this course after coming to Hilton Head for years. The course layout was great. Not a much water and sand traps as other courses in the area. Made the experience more enjoyable.

The course was dry and cluttered. Given the hurricanes extensive damage to the entire area, all courses are suffering so I believe all should be given an out, however, this course was the worst shape of the five we have played.

Great course to play while on the island. Staff were very friendly. I played with no one before or after me so pace was fantastic. Greens were well taken care of, with great pin locations that were challenging but not unfair.

We enjoyed the course which is in good condition, some burnout on fairways but greens are excellent and fast.

The sand traps really need some work, difficult to get your club through the ball.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating . We would definitely recommend this course .
