Rating 74.1

Rose Hill Golf Club in Bluffton is situated amongst plentiful live oaks draped with Spanish moss. There are also sparkling, crystal-clear lakes that come into play on several holes. The golf course is a part of Rose Hill Plantation, giving it a truly Southern look and feel. Most of the holes are flat and straightforward but there are a few tricky doglegs to keep the course interesting. The layout features formidable par 3s that will test even the best players and a notably difficult par 5 that measures just over 600 yards. The challenging holes are balanced with player-friendly features that make it versatile enough for a wide range of skill levels. Four sets of tees, the longest coming to just over 6,900 yards, make Rose Hill Golf Club even more accessible.

Nothing has changed

Have not played this course since last year. Nothing has changed. The greens need work and the grass was high. A good portion of the fairways had not been cut in weeks. At least 6 inches of growth.. Front nine greens have improved. Back nine greens were hard scrabble and sand. More sand than grass.. Great place to practice your your game.. Beautiful clubhouse. Should have put that money into the course.

I have friends who will not play this course because of the greens.

Good time

Always like the layout...think staff needs to understand the greens aren’t going to “come back” with rain. Time to rope em off and sod, really guys what are you waiting for. The reviews aren’t going to get better

Rose Hill after 5 yeas {?}

The last time we played Rose Hill, the course was in sad shape, but we really liked the layout.

Regretably, things have not improved. .The greens are not in good shape, they have black mould, "lousy" grass, no grass on sections... The fairways are not smooth. They are trying - I see signs of fertiliser throuhout. Granted, we were not able to finish the 18 holes due to weather and had to stop atter the sixth hole (we did receive a rain check for 9 holes)

At the price paid, I expected better conditions.

Up or Down

This course is either on the way down or trying to get off the mat, but either way, it’s not a good experience. You can lose balls in the fairway and first cut easily. Greens are very poor to marginal.

Will not play again until major changes are made.

They are getting there

We have vacationed in Hilton Head every year for the past five years. Rose Hill has struggled over the last few years.
The new clubhouse is great. New carts are great. Sand traps were the best maintained of all the courses we have played this year.
Fairways could be cut and the greens really need attention, Lots of weeds and some kind of animal digging for grubs and staff had not been out to clean them up even though our Tee Time was at 9 a.m.
If they spend a few dollars on the green it will be a great course for the money.

The course is in dire need of investment in turf management and green rehabilitaion

I wish I could recommend this course because it really is a nice layout, but between gofer tracks in the fairways and a couple of greens; evidence of rodents and/or birds excavating fairways for grubs; and a total lack of grass on 20 to 70 % of EVERY green, it is hard to say “go play this course”. They have a very nice, brand new club house, so I hope they will now put some money into the course itself. If you are looking for “Cheap and cheery” here it is, otherwise: Good luck, I hope they revive the course!

Fun round of golf

Surprisingly nice course, Really good value for our first round of golf for 2019 (being Canadians). Very friendly and welcoming staff. Would happily play again as we start our season. Fairways a bit grassy, but we teed up our fairway shots. Greens are ok, but not yet at their best. Played round with my wife in 3.50 hours.

Value course

Overall a decent place to play a very casual round of golf. Challenging enough to make it playable but not overly difficult. Greens were in really rough shape though. Definitely would not pay full price to play. Wasn’t busy and we got through in about 3:45.

Terrible Coursr

Don’t waste money playing this course. Many other courses within minutes of this one with MUCH better conditions, pricing, amenities and equipment.

The greens have divots and large hikes, unable to put. Fairways have clusters of weeds and dirt mounds. Bunkers have weeds.
Very, very poor course.

Getting Better but Not Great

As a Rose Hill resident I've played this course many times. Andy Stephens has made a number of improvements from new carts, refreshed bunkers, and proper mowing to cleaning up the landscaping. However, the course continues to be in below average conditions. More than 1/3 of the greens are patchy and missing grass. Getting a true roll is out of the question. Several of the greens simply need to be closed and redone. The staff is friendly and the service is good. The new pro shop and clubhouse is a plus. The GolfNow price and convenience makes it worth playing but the conditions are generally poor. I'm hoping that the summer growing season brings the course to life.

nice course but many greens in dire shape

Always liked Rose Hill, but to pay $40 and have numerous issues with the greens is not right.

You can’t putt on this course. Even at $29 it’s overpriced. Spend an extra $10 and go elsewhere

Michael was awesome and staff very kind. I took my son out who is 5 and we had a great time. The course conditions were just okay, some greens badly burned up but we had a great time regardless and enjoyed our day immensely! Thank you!

Seen better days

Most of the course was in fair to good shape, but unfortunately 4 of the greens were in very rough shape.
The course was surprisingly light on golfers for a beautiful Sunday morning, so place was great at 3 1/2 hours.
Because of conditions, I would recommend this for beginners or casual golfers only, but bring lots of balls as it can be tight and with plenty of water to swallow up errant shots.
