This is what a course looks like right before closing

Perhaps the worst golf course I have ever played. The fairways and greens were in terrible shape. The one and only day that I played there it looked like the fairways were not owed for at least two weeks, no exaggeration. I lost three balls in the middle of the fairway because the grass was so deep. I should have known it was going to be a bad experience when I pulled in a the parking lot and there were only five cars. This may be one of the cheapest rounds you find on line, but I would not play there again even if the round was free.

Going in Wrong Direction

I haven't played a worse maintained course in all my years of golf. I played this course in 2008 and it was great. Yesterday was much different with unmoved tee boxes and fairways, with grass deeper than roughs at other coirses. I lost 4 balls in the fairways. Parts of greens were burned out and other parts were infested with fire ants. The greens fees were low but not enough to entice me to return until the course improves it's maintenance.

Skip it!

All the rate was very cheap, there are only nine holes to this course so you have to play them twice to really get your moneys worth for the price you're paying. We played from the championship tees and the boxes were not even mowed! The grass was way too high on the tee boxes and the rest of the course was for poor to mediocre. The greens were in bad shape. I have played several courses in this area and paid the same rate and had much better experiences at those places. Lesson learned, I will not play here again.

Hugely disappointing!

I took my 12 and 13 year old sons here to golf 9 holes. None of us are great or even good golfers, so we wanted to stay out of the way of more experienced golfers. That we did, no one else was on this course. The empty parking lot should have alerted us, but these were the worst greens I have ever seen in my life! Crab grass, sand and ants are about all that you'll find here! We knew it wasn't a premium course, but it certainly not the Hilton Head golf experience we were expecting. Pay a little more and play elsewhere!

Good value

Right price here. Challenging course. Will play again next vacation. Some rough greens and tees. I'm sure this place was in excellent shape in its prime.

First time

Went with my son and nephew. Good course for kids to just whack some balls around. However, greens were in terrible condition. Could not even teach kids how to put because there was no more than 5 feet of green to putt on without it being dirt or completely damages green. Would not recommend. Although cheap, and nobody else on the course....tough to teach the game to kids. A little TLC would do the course wonders.

Nice owner, but this course should be shut down. Absolute worst course I ever played. Half of the greens were dirt - you could not even putt. Crab grass took over the entire fairways. Tee boxes were not mowed. Not sure how they stay in business- I was literally the only one on the course, I guess others know as well.
