Rating 73.5

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.

Great greens and layout

The course itself was great. It can be pricey if not for GOLFNOW hot deals. The ranger was a little too uptight and made his presence felt more than I thought was necessary. He was a nice guy though and I plan on playing this course again soon.

Ok course for the money

If you are looking for a good value this is a great course. However the pace of play is slow and mowers are out during busy times. I would play here again if the tee time was later in the day. Mornings are very congested.

Course Conditions

While the fairways and greens are good condition, The tee boxes and sides of fairways aweful. Tee boxes not maintained, side fairways has dead branches, trash and poor view

The two practice holes in terrible condition. The one green close to beautiful Oak Terrace restaurant has tall weeds, terrible greens and is disgrace to the restaurant

Rose Hill

Played this course yesterday morning and I have to say it’s a lot better then expected. I have been coming to the island for over 10 years and rose hill was a notorious laughing stock. However new management is really starting to clean it up. Tee boxes and greens aren’t bad. The aerification should be done in a week or 2 but greens still were running consistent. It’s definitely a half step below Indigo Run or The Port Royals but is a huge steal if you catch it on a hot deal under 40$. Practice range and greens are ok, but they do offer a practice a hole which is really cool. Fairways are solid but missing them can be tough as there isn’t much forgiveness. Played from the farthest tees and shot 84 which is about my handicap. Tough par 3.”s but very score able par 5s.

In better shape - and continues to improve

I've always enjoyed the layout at Rose Hill, but had stopped playing there a couple of years ago because it was in such bad shape. Starting playing there again last year as friends were giving it a 'last chance'. I can tell you it has certainly improved and continues to improve.

It is a challenging track, with some narrow hitting areas, plenty of trees and water hazards to deal with.

The greens are in great shape, the tee boxes for the most part are kept mowed and free of bare areas. Traps still need a bit of work but acceptable. The fairways and rough is where the course needs to keep moving forward to turn this course from good to great.

Enjoy playing here and will continue to do so, as long as improvements to the overall experience continue to grow.

Bob, thanks for taking time to post a review although I am a bit concerned about your stated issues or and expectations. Seems that this has more to do with your lack of support with your Neighborhood post and now attempting a jab at the Club under the warm blanket of anonymity. Unfortunately, one of your “friends” made us aware of your post. For clarity, this response is being written by DaWayne Penberthy, Head Golf professional at Rose Hill Golf Club. I can be reached nearly every day in the pro-shop or at (843) 757-9030.

What precisely were you expecting to see regarding amenities? Due to Covid 19 which is kind of a big deal and which has been thoroughly covered in the news, we took precautions for your safety: We eliminated or reduced common touch points such as ball washers, bunker rakes, and water coolers which have been removed from certainly all local courses that are open. Likewise, we took precautions to reduce the temptation to remove the flags by inverting the golf hole liners so balls could still be “holed” but would remain within easy reach of your gloved hand. We sanitize carts between uses with approved Covid 19 killing disinfectants and offer the opportunity for individual use carts for non-players who do not reside together. Were the lack of amenities truly a concern, we could have addressed it had you simply asked by explaining the need for these measures.

The restaurant, bar, and beverage cart are not affiliated in any way with the golf course or its management. Their decision to totally close due to Covid 19 are entirely beyond our control. Again, were the lack of these amenities truly a concern, we could have addressed it had you simply asked. In any case it is exceptionally unreasonable to negatively review us, for their decision to close these facilities.

As for twigs and branches, we had just experienced wind gusts of over 30 mph a couple days prior and it does take some time to pick up over 100 acres with the number of trees we have. Again, we could have answered your concerns in this area had you simply asked.

All the tee complexes, roughs and fairways were fertilized about a week prior to your play. We followed this up on the 11th and 12th, aerating and vertical cutting all the tee complexes and fairways. You know this as the closure had been posted for ten days prior to the 14th AND that rates were reduces following the aeration. However, was this truly a concern, we could have addressed it had you simply asked by explaining the need for these measures.

This review aside, it is unfortunate that services allowing customers and even noncustomers to post reviews anonymously do influence future purchases because most will not bother to read responses to reviews. But they will have seen the half-truths, misrepresentations and outright lies crafted behind an anonymous keyboard with little risk of accountability. At some point, service providers and vendors will have to have some protection from small minded people who want revenge for some perceived slight.

Golf Now, please do something about this fundamentally unsound practice.

Rose hill was a nice and challenging course. Fairways needed a little work, greens were very nice albeit a little slow. Beautiful layout. No walking before 11:00, and they didn’t have enough carts for patrons prior to then. I will play again.
