Played the Arthur Hills course and it was in top shape. We played in 3.5 hours. The bunkers were all groomed and had excellent firmness and playability. The greens are good and have pretty good speed. The staff was welcoming and the clubhouse grill had some nice drink and appetizer specials after the round. Will try it again for sure.

This course could be one of my favorites. However if you miss the greens by more than 15-20 feet you are on dirt. I say again dirt. I have a single digit handicap but trying to get up and down off of dirt is difficult. It took us 2:30 to play the front nine. Evidently, the marshals can't open their mouths because they didn't.

The staff was great at greeting and taking care of your golf. The course was in pretty good shape for the amount of play it's had.the pace of play was a little bit slower than usual the greens were a little rough in places due to the weather here lately,but all in all it's still a good day to play here.

Course layout is interesting. Fairly easy from the forward tees yet challenging from the tips. Most hazards can be seen from the tees.

Course conditions were good for this time of the year.

This is a great golf course. It is difficult but reasonable. It has some interesting features like rectangular sand traps here and there but they neither add nor detract from the fact that it is simply a very enjoyable and pliayable golf course.

From the moment you are greeted at the bag drop through the check-in at the pro shop to the starter, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The course was in great shape especially considering the amount of rain that had fallen in recent days. The layout is very fair and allows for recover of a wayward shot. Highly recommend every golfer put Palmetto Hall on your play list.

The front and back nines are quite different. It almost looks like the back nine which is cut out of heavy oak forest was built long before the front nine. The back nine is narrow, more dog legs, overhanging trees in the fairway and even tall trees in front of greens to mess with your mind. Carry over water was difficult on some holes when we were directly into a strong wind. Overall, great track and good price.

Played from white tees. Green are in good shape but pace was a little slower than expected. They have plenty of elevation changes with some back stopsychological with some pin positions. Bunkers will vary with sand consistency. Lots of dogleg with trees to block out one side or the other. Plays like harbor town with the shot making. Don't get confused with another course with a similar name. Golf now gave bad information on correct location.

This one is tucked away on the sorta/kinda heel of the island, and it is set so far back from the main road that once you are on the golf course, ALL man-made noises ceases to exist. It truly is a great total golf experience.

Staff was super-friendly. Course was in excellent shape. I played from the whites and it was challenging enough for me. Most fairways are fairly wide, but the greens are smallish and well-protected, so you need to hit good shots from tee to green to score here.

And, proving that golf is not so much about "where" you play, but "who" you play with, the pro shop/starter hooked me up with two of the nicest gentlemen (Dave and Gary) I've met in a long, long time. I'm playing every day this week while here on vacation, and I'll be hard-pressed to have a more friendly and enjoyable round of golf.

Bottom line: play this track; you will not be disappointed!
