Course was more like a public course than a private course. Never saw a marshall or any other staff to move along play.

Course was not tidy and felt worn. Given other alternative on the island avoid unless it is a last resort

The only person who seemed to was at the bag drop who assigned the cart.

We had an amazing day of golf here, the weather was perfect, we paired up with another couple and this course was very impressive.

We had a 9 AM tee time but our friendly pro shop guy said we could go right out now

if we wanted.

Ron was the nice starter who got us going.

There was nobody in front of us for the entire 3.5 hour round.

The fairways were pristine and cut short so the ball got rolling good.

The fairways here are wide with little Bermuda grass encroachment.

The amazing variety of scenery and the presence of tall pines that occasionally come in

make this course so much fun.

The greens here are rolled twice a week and are slick and tricky. With all the undulations

on these greens, your putting skills will be tested. It's a good bet that these are some of the best rolling greens on Hilton Head Island.

There's some interesting variety in this Hills layout. There are tough par fives and short and tough par fours, but the par three holes are really difficult.

Hole #18 is a nasty narrow dogleg left with a lake in play along the left side. This hole requires a long tee shot to the right-center avoiding all the daunting berms placed along the right side.

The landing area for your second shot is too narrow and then you have another long shot over the water and into the wind. This little devil should be a par five hole.

Great layout. Course was in very good condition except for a few of the forward tees used by my wife. They offered a very good rate for tee times before 8:00am. We were able to play 18 in 3 hours and beat the hear. Arthur Hills courses are always interesting and this one is no different.

Palmetto Hall is a beautiful area. The Arthur Hills course is outstanding. Greens were rolled and cut, traps were well maintained, fairways and tees were in great shape and the layout is great.

I will definitely play here again.

The course was in great shape. You will need to manage you shots. The greens tend to be fast, and easy to overshoot. Great value for the money.

Was greeted at the car and had my clubs taken to the driving range. Course was in good condition and the greens were in great condition. I couldn't believe that this course was managed by Brown Golf Management since other Brown Golf courses are in terrible shape (Rose Hill, Island West). Would highly recommend this course especially if there is a hot deal.

I enjoyed this course. The layout is great. I went out as single and played the round in 3 hours. I had the course to myself it was wonderful second time I played on Bermuda grass, it is tough to get used to. Can't wait to get back to Hilton Head to play more courses
