I knew i was in trouble when they said their is not a starter. The pace of play was slow and the course conditions was average. The bright spot of the day was the greens,they were fast and true.What you saw was what you got on the greens.

Needs work

The course is still in rough shape. Tee boxes need work. The clubhouse is not well supplied. What about food? There was none!

Course was wet because of rain the day before. However it did not interfere with the pace of play. Greens were in great shape.

Enjoyable Day

My wife and I had a great time playing The Legends today. The course is laid out to be both challenging for good golfers and friendly to people who like to play for relaxation and little pressure. The staff was very friendly and the clubhouse was relaxed and the menu was what you would expect at a club where you come to play golf.

A hole n one on 14!

The course was in good condition. We joined a very nice couple visiting from Arizona . We had an enjoyable round, with my ace on hole 14. The Pro shop staff were super. I live in VA, so I played the course only once previously. I will play the Legends whenever I am on the area.

Great Course Layout

Definitely worth the drive from Hilton Head up to Parris Island. Course was in very good condition. Quite a few holes with water, but fairways were wide enough in most cases you could take water out of play. Sand traps were in excellent condition. Yes I did get to try out a few. I will definitely go back when opportunity arises.

Excellent fairways and very fast but smooth greens

Very enjoyable round. Fairways wide enough to permit using driver. Don’t be aggressive with your putts or else you will be three putting often.

Not-so hidden Gem

I've paid $80-$125 for this level of golf. Fortunate to be a resident of Beaufort, $40.

Perfection!

This is probably the finest course I have ever played that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Super friendly staff, very clean course in superb condition. Very fast greens which I liked. Nothing even close to negative to say about this course. Just be on the lookout for big gators. The carts also had GPS which is a plus for reading each hole. Highly recommend. God Bless our Troops!

Best course for the money

This course located on the Marine Corps Recruit Depot is literally a dream come true. The greens were rolling close to 12 and smooth as could be. the fairways are great. There is not other course around that is nearly as nice as this one for the money. Course can play back to 7000 yards. The pace of play was great. The restaurant closes early, but you can still get something to drink after your round. The offer lessons and support as well. You will not want to miss a chance to play here. Just tell the MP at the gate you have a tee time and show you DL,Insurance and registration and head to the course.

Great layout!

Had a great time today. Even though they had an outing, and could have said sorry, they were more than accommodating to honor our online tee time. The course is beautiful and in excellent condition. Picturesque holes with tons of wildlife. Almost every hole has water but plenty of bailout room to the opposite side for those who don't hit is straight every time. I will be making this course a regular stop.

Greens were lightening fast

One of our most favorite courses to play when visiting Hilton Head. Our wives really like it. Course was in very good condition. The quickness of the greens was difficult to get use to. A lot of wildlife on the course.

Always enjoyed this course

Course was way over-booked. Had to wait 40 minutes for carts to come in before we could go out to play. Waited on every tee and in every fairway because of the heavy traffic. Could only finish 9 holes though we paid for 18. Disappointing.

Canadian? Forget about it!

It takes 3 days to have your application to enter the base vetted if you are a citizen of another country. We found out after making the reservation for the next day and then it seemed next to impossible to cancel because it was a “hot deal”, Not so hot a deal IMO. Fortunately the club house manager handled the cancellation with GolfNow.

Great course

We thoroughly enjoyed the great condition of the fairways, greens and tee boxes. The pace of play was brisk and we played the course in just over 3 1/2 hours. We would definitely return.
