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.

I was supprised to find the sand traps full of mud and water most of the greens were in bad shape. I played here a couple of years ago and it was better. Next year will try another course.

This golf course has come a long way. I remember it from years ago and it was usually wet and sloppy. The drainage is now perfect. A few greens were having problems and they were slow but I expect this this time of year here.

They are renovating the clubhouse.

I think it is the best value on Hilton Head right now.

Mike at the clubhouse was a super nice guy but couldn't outweigh all the negatives from this course. I've been playing golf for 30 years and this is hands down the worst course I've ever played. Fairways look like they haven't been watered in years, the greens are literally un-playable. We played for $35 which I would normally consider a huge value but I honestly wouldn't play this course again if it were free. I've never left a review on any golf course but if I can save anyone else from playing here, I'll feel a little better. Please play another course in the area. You've been warned!!

The clubhouse was being renovated and the men’s room was a portapotty. The back 9 was as bad as I have seen condition-wise. Dead greens. The sprinklers came on as we approached the 1st green and even though we called the clubhouse we had to play through the water. We have played there every year at least once for years, but that was probably our last visit. The fact that tax was not disclosed until we paid was not conducive to our enjoyment.

My main issue was with the greens. Many have very little grass left. The three members who I played with were great guys but even they had modified rules for putting on the bad greens.

Honestly, until their greens grow back, there are many courses in the area that are much better values.

I should have read previous reviews. This course at Rose Hill is awful.

People at front desk not friendly, course conditions terrible and amenities the worse.

Go to alternate course as this one is waste of money.

Close course, make into a park.

This course was on life support beginning of March. They have definitely made marked improvements to front 9 greens. New management is certainly putting in the effort to making this a fine course. Very good layout and I'm rooting for Stevens Group to bring back to life. They were left with disaster. Played May 11 and 12

Four years ago I played Rosehill and found it to be a great experience. Unfortunately an ownership change has resulted in the deterioration of this golf course. However, the price is right so not all is bad. And the staff are friendly which also adds to the experience.

The good - layout is challenging with lots of water and sand to keep you honest.

The not so good - several greens on the back nine are damaged and very bumpy (We played a two-putt rule); sand traps are poor - owners this would be an easy fix - starts with raking them daily!.

Overall not a complete washout.
