I've been playing for many years I have a single digit index so you can take this review as a good judge of the course. The conditions were good the greens rolled nice and the layout was fun. The view to some of the greens made them look smaller than they actually were which made playing the course fun. They are actually cheering the greens and the Broncos out at the beginning of June but didn't realise they started construction already by closing two of the holes on the front side and they had trenched around most of the greens to put sprinklers in . It would have been nice to know this before we played so I'm a little disappointed at that but all in all I would go back after renovations are complete

The golf course was in dreadful condition. Two of the holes had temporary greens. Upon arrival to the course I asked at check in , What was the condition ? And was told that is was in great shape. Upon completion of the round I went inside to complain and was told that no one was aware that 2 greens were temporary. I was totally dissatisfied with this golf course and will not be back

I thought the course was in good condition. The fairways were really soft and lush. The greens rolled well and were quick, but not too quick. The bunkers needed some work done to them, but were okay. We were the first to tee off so the course was all ours and no one was within an hour of us. Hole number 17 was having some work done to it which we didn't know about which was a little unusual so we picked up after our second shot. But all in all a good deal for your money. I have played here about seven times and it is one of my favorites for the price you pay. Come out and enjoy!!

The holes that we played were awesome. One hole was under major construction and the hole before it had trucks on it surrounding the green. I am sure this is not normal but when we arrived I asked the question about the condition to the starter and he said no construction was going on.

Staff was not friendly at all and when we made the turn the club house was closed at 4:00pm, very disappointing. This may be be normal for the time of year but knowing that would allowed us to buy extra water and Gatorade as it was hot.

Over all very disappointing as I would have loved to buy a shirt or two for me and my boys to remember the one course we scheduled on our first for our trip to Hilton Head.

If your looking for customer service this is not the place. Course was fun which made it even more of a disappointment.
