Cupp course was in good shape with slow greens. Pace of play was fine. Interesting layout with a couple of funky short par 4s. Locals rate of $49 incl range balls was a good value.

First time playing this course and was very pleased with course condition. Fairways were nice, greens were great and rolled very true. Only issue was minor problem with pace of play. Great deal on golf now. I highly recommend this course and plan on playing again on next trip to HHI.

Staff was friendly and helpful - even bringing out water and ice when we let them know one of the water coolers was empty. A couple of tough approaches requiring water carries but there were bailout places if you were willing to give upa stroke. Greens were pretty quick.

Nice amount of water and sand to make the coarse a challenge. Nice homes around the coarse. Need the golf cart to get between the greens and the next tee box. Would probably look into playing this coarse the next time we visit Hilton Head Island.

Better hit them straight. Otherwise, you'll have trouble. Some fairways seemed narrow.

Well maintained with 4 sets of tees. Rough was a little unforgiving for your average player but and overall 7 or 8. Weather was hot and muggy so take one extra club

The course as a six handicap from the tips was too much to handle. The landing zones for someone who doesn't carry the ball over 250 were way too tight: that said, my dad played the senior tees and it was fine. Greens were ok, not smooth. Great layout, staff extremely friendly, pace excellent. I'd go back hoping I could hit it better.

Enjoyed the time, played from the White tees with one other person and we had great conversations. The round was over befire we knew it.

The greens were slow but true, faster by the time we played 13 on.

My first time playing here, would play jt agsin

Great Golfnow price.

This course is not as well maintained as HH National which we played a few days earlier and would highly recommend. These greens we fuzzy and burnt in spots. Tee boxes could use so work as well. . We played in a threesome and finished in under 4 hours. Never thought I'd ever say this but I felt rushed. Groups behind us we're apparently in a race. Not sure if that's the course jamming in to many tee times or just our luck.

Course was in great shape. Breezed around in2 ½ hours. Outstanding layout with some hidden trouble. The greens were aerated a week ago but were very smooth and puttable. Plenty of room off the tees...a second shot golf course.

We picked our Tee-Time in the heat of the day therefore there was absolutely no wait time, we even got on a little early, we chose this course because of the "Hot Deal" and if all the courses around here are this good and well maintained then it speaks for itself, the reason the course got just a good was that morning they aerated all the greens so the true feel on the greens wasn't there

Hadn't played this course since the "Winter" as in February time frame. The course is looking great. They had just aerated which we knew going in so we expected the sandy greens and not a lot of roll. For me it tends towards a better round because I can attack the holes without punishment. The bunkers were fantastic besides maybe one or two that leaned a little more towards a trash bunker with that cement feel to them but those were easily avoidable anyways. Played for a fair price especially with the free range balls this course always offers. Definitely one of my favorite courses out of the Brown managed ones.
