Played Barony and the course is in better condition than I remember from 2 or 3 years ago. Wide fairways on most holes. Large undulating greens. A good course for all types of players.

I like this course but did not play well. Some sand traps thin and some par 4 holes had cart path only which slowed play (in addition to threesome in front of us). Friendly staff.

I always try to play the Port Royal courses in HHI. Got to play Robbers Row again after a couple years and really enjoyed this long and rather challenging course where the variety of hole designs are well suited for average to advanced players. Port Royal's excellent clubhouse facilities, welcoming staff who treat you great, and well maintained courses make playing any of their courses well worth a visit.

The day started out with a chill in the air as the temperatures were in the mid 40's, but the brisk pace kept us from staying chilly. Entire round took about 3 and half hours. Course was in great shape. Staff was friendly, helpful and very pleasant.

Robbers Row has an awesome clubhouse with a fully stocked pro-shop.

There is also a restaurant with great food located here.

This golf course is well maintained with great greens and sand traps.

This is a popular layout so an early tee off is suggested.

This course is located in a historic civil war encampment and there are historic markers located throughout the golf course.

They opened Robbers Row in 1967 then had a major redesign by Pete Dye in 1994.

There's plenty of shot making challenges here.

There were two other golf courses here at Port Royal, Barony and Planters Row. Unfortunately, hurricane Matthew destroyed Planters Row last October.

Eric in the pro shop was an amazing guy and a great representative of Port Royal.

Fred the starter is good at his job and handled the delay professionally, he was a fun guy.

The course is a fine collection of challenging holes with well kept fast and tricky greens.

Some of the fairways are badly torn up by duffers who do not fill their divots.

They have a super friendly cart girl who makes frequent rounds with a cheerful smile.

We even saw a marshall who let us know about the pump issues on hole #12,

Because we started early we never encountered other players. We were able to finish in 3.5

hours, This is a fun course and we look forward to playing here next year.

We met Ben the head professional he is from Indianapolis and a great representative of Port Roal Golf. We had some issues with missing headgear and Ben was very helpful in finding them for us.

The driving range was not available due to an upcoming event. That is the only negative comment we had on this course, the staff, or the overall experience. The course plays well if you are not a big hitter and was in consistently great shape.
