Compared to a lot of the other courses on the island, this one ranks high with value. They have done a great job since the storm and the conditions were great, aside from the bunkers. They were wet/hard packed despite the lack of rain. Pace of play is preached here from arrival to departure even though the course does not lend itself to quick play based on the amount of bunkers. Greens are in great shape and rolled true and quick. Fairways nice as well. This is my second time playing and will be back. Number 6 is an amazing view.

Last week we played six courses in or around HHI and this was the least interesting. Conditions of the course were decent but not nearly as good as many of the alternative courses around. Sand traps were SAD.

Most fairways are forgiving, but beware of well guarded greens with plenty of sand. The greens are fast and didn't hold very well when I played. The weather was perfect and the course was in good shape. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Complimentary range ball were a nice touch, although I would have preferred some flags as targets when warming up.

Tees and fairways in pretty good shape. Greens okay. Some pretty quick, some not as much.

Was able to play a lot of different shots.

#6 was very cool. Shorter par 3 with Atlantic in background.

Loved this course! We played in the afternoon and thought it would be hot. However, there was a nice breeze blowing the whole round. The course was in excellent shape - greens were great and the many sand traps were well maintained. I highly recommend this course.

The greens were slick and hard and probably running 12 on the stimp meter. A beautiful layout that required some shot making. The course was in need of water however. It didn't compare to the lushness of Old South. But the greens were better at Oyster Reef. The staff was friendly and I would return here the next time I visit Hilton Head.

Played Oyster Reef twice within 3 days. Both times staff were friendly and welcoming. The course layout has several doglegs. Hitting a driver is not required on every tee shot. I really enjoyed playing this course because it required shot shaping and shot placement. The par 5's (from the white tees) are reachable in two shots if you are accurate. If you're not, bring your pail and shovel because you'll be spending lots of time "on the beach". Have your camera ready for the par 3 sixth hole...great looking hole. The course was in good shape. They've done a great job in recovering the course from the impact of Hurricane Matthew.
