Excellent condition, greens were great. Some pretty tough holes will definitely have to play it again. Should play easier 2nd time around, it's one of those courses you need to play a few times to score well and it's well worth playing again.

This course is in great shape right now...the greens are fast and the fairways smooth. I try to play it every week and see the challenges in it every time out. Don't miss this one if you come to HHI.

Pro shop staff and starter were friendly and professional. The restaurant staff was another story. We got to the course early enough to try to get some breakfast. My wife went in while I parked the car and was told in no uncertain terms that they didn't serve breakfast but had sit down lunch and dinner. Rude.

My son and I played the Cupp Course and found it to be a fair, but challenging test of both of out skills (He plays high 70's-low 80's, and I play to a 20+ handicap). We both decided we could play the course much better after having experienced it for the first time. Though there is water on most holes and the course is well bunkered, we both were able to avoid most of the hazards. Wide fairways are the norm, though some landing areas provided a challenge to approach a variety of greens and pin placements. All in all the course provided a pleasant experience and a perfect setting to spend the afternoon with my son.

A fun and challenging course to play. Lots to look at. Great value with GolfNow. Staff were very accommodating since we arrived early but they let us tee off earlier too. Course wasn't busy so two of us got around in just over 3 hours.

Love this course. Greens are fabulous and very fast. Need to hit over water on several holes and approach shots. Need more soft sand in traps. Wish I played better. Enjoy.

I had played here once before and found it quite a challenge. This time I played form the senior tees and found my comfort zone. The course is in great shape form tee to green. There is a variety of shots and you have to pay attention to where the pin is. For 20 dollars I could play here on a regular basis, although I know we got a sweet deal on Golf Now for a noon tee time.

This course was beautiful & challenging. Every green is protected by water or sand. As a mediocre player my approach shots were very difficult. Every green is sloped and FAST. I still enjoyed the challenge and would definite play again. TE

Both courses at Palmetto Hall are improving all around. Most people do not realize how much hurricane damage they sustained...you can still see effects on the sides. However, the course itself and greens are in excellent shape -- play it back and you will have all the course you want.

Cart attendants, pro shop employees, starter and cart girl are all top notch and extremely helpful.

I play here a couple times a week and just love it.
