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.

COVID IGNORANT

First course I've played since March that did not have to sponges in hole to prevent ball from dropping to bottom thereby encouraging handling of the flag stick. Person in the Pro shop did not have amsk and none of the cart people had masks. Also water coolers on course. Only awareness of COVID precautions that I saw was that no rakes were in sand traps. Hopefully the carts were sanitized but I doubt it,
That said course was average at best. Not average for area but average as an average municipal course.
Some fairways were in decent condition others were not. Greens were in decent shape but slow. Tee areas were in bad condition.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PRIMARILY DUE TO LACK OF COVID PRECAUTIONS. Also much better courses available that are better values. Course is not in excellent condition.

Communication bad

Was very disappointed that it wasn’t posted that the snack bar wouldn’t be open.

No signage or nothing mentioned on Golfnow site.

Couldn’t even get a hot dog and a beer.
Then when we asked about it, staff was very rude in explaining why.

Charging full price and no accommodations.what so ever.

Rose Hill

Course is in good shape. Pace of play very slow. Rained on us at 9. Cooled it down a little but sure didn’t increase the speed of play. Rangers were out but still very slow. All in all a good day

Rose Hill Golf Course

Very nice course, would play regularly if I were a resident. Was a bit confused on why the staff had cart path only instead of at least 90 degree rule,course was plenty dry enough for it.

Nice layout

This course has a nice layout,. There are enough water holes to keep you straight. Good intermediate course for average golfers. You can score well with some well placed shots. Rangers keep the pace moving.

Single riding alone

Seems they have adopted a policy to charge an extra $5 if you choose to ride alone. With the COV-ID issues still active, you would think they would come up with more ways to attract people; not look to make money from it. Paying the extra $5 does not make any more carts available. That is not in the best interest of their customers. Not sure what they do if you have a threesome playing. Someone has to ride alone.

Nice course

Loved the contrast of front 9 v back 9. Did not like that a few of the greens had brown spots; and portions of fairways were weed ridden. Still, course was fun to play and price was right. Will likely play here again.

Tee time not booked as expected

The course is not in great shape right now. Fairways have little to no grass and greens are spotty. This is the second time we arrived for our scheduled tee time and found it was not on record. Tee time for Sunday booked on Thursday. The older gentleman at the desk was not very caring. A younger associate stepped in and told us he would work us in. The other players and myself are all embers of the club n=and had signed up for the three year special rates. I set up tee times for our neighborhood couples group. The many restrictions that were not initially discussed when we signed up, are causing us to quickly lose interest due to this treatment. We wish we felt like valued customers when we arrive, and especially when we run into issues such as I described. When we play, we enjoy the course and challenges it presents. Hopefully conditions will improve in time over the summer.
