This was the most fun I have ever had golfing. Staff and course were great.. We played 9 and then got rained out so we were given a rain check for the other nine. We played the next day with no reservation. All the Canadian snowbirds need to skip Florida and stay in Hilton Head. Thanks for great vacation memories.

What I am seeing is that people do reviews based on what they pay not the quality of the course. Staff was great but the course while the greens were good the fairways were bare and sandtraps were unplayable.

Hilton Head Lakes GC is worth a 30 minute trip from HH island. This is more a links style course with great scenery that is spread out over a large area with no back and forth holes. The conditions are nice and the layout is challenging without being tricky.

I played this course quite a bit a couple years ago, then I took a break from playing. Now that I'm getting back into it this course has made a dramatic improvement and is reaching it potential. Greens and almost perfect, it never stays wet for too long. I would consider making this my home course if I lived closer. Two thumbs up

Greens are in perfect condition. Tee boxes are great. Layout is wide open but still challenging. Well placed bunkers but could use a little more sand. This place is a gem.

Hey Gary, Thanks for taking the time to review our course. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the course and loved how the greens were rolling. It looks like you selected 1 star across the board but given your written review, that sounds like it may not be accurate. Please feel free to write a new review or update this one! We hope to see you again to play soon.

Course has a friendly layout. You still have to shoot well to score well. Grass starting to come in. Greens rolled well , not slow but not fast. Good value. Worth the drive from Hilton Head. Only negative is that were out of range balls at 10a.m.

Early march so fairways not developed too well yet but greens nice and layout really nice. Clubhouse still under construction. Hardly anyone on the course and very close to I95 so was a great stop for us.

We stay on Hilton Head island so thought this course might be too far away. However the few extra minutes needed to get there was well worth it. The staff were all very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in us. On gentleman, Al I believe, was particularly helpful. The clubhouse Is rather plain but they have plans for a new one. The course is very open with only a few fairways having homes bordering them. It is a developing area, so that may change. The greens were great. They had us play the back 9 first, no problem. On one of the cart paths, we came upon a diamond back snake. We waited until it slithered into the woods. We have been warned many times not to go search for a errant ball. Now I see why. Overall we all loved this course and will definitely return. Forgot to mention, we have golfed most of the Brown courses ,but prefer HH Lakes.

Once course grows in, will be a real gem. Look forward to coming back and seeing the improvements in completion.

Staff was great, good to talk to a fellow Michigander.

Love to see the clubhouse when complete.

Worth every dime, come out and enjoy.

Awesome course if you live off the island like I do. 5 minutes drive for me and because of that you can't beat it for me. Course is great, it's one of the newer ones so tee boxes are in great shape along with the greens. Pace of play seemed a little slower than usual but a couple groups let us pass thru and then smooth sailing. I wish the real club house would actually get built here because it would turn this course upside down with the amount of potential it has.
