About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 71
Length 6730 yards
Slope 133
Rating 72.8

Sprawling across 300 acres of lush, Carolina Lowcountry, Hilton Head National Golf Club has gained a reputation as being one of the area's best public courses. The course was a collaboration between Gary Player and Bobby Weed, who each designed a nine. Weed designed the front nine with the intention of creating a complement to the Player-designed back nine rather than making them too similar. He included larger greens with more dramatic undulations. The signature hole is the tricky sixth, which features the largest lake on the golf course bordering its entire right side and deep pot bunkers along the greensides. The back nine has many challenging holes as well, including the course's number one handicap hole, the par-5 seventh. It is the ninth that might be Hilton Head National's toughest though, with a deep marsh along the right side of a narrow fairway.

Great conditions!

This course was the best in terms of the conditions. The fairways were in great condition and the greens were consistently fast. I like the fact that there is no housing around. The GolfNow Hot Deal rate made it affordable and we enjoyed our day there.

This course is very fair for average golfers. It offers some challenges but not to tight. Interesting layout keeps your interest up for whole round. Course is in good condition and staff are very friendly. Provides a warm feeling that you are home.

Great Layout, but some Conditioning Issues

Layout: The layout is fantastic. Each hole is unique and well designed. There is a good mix of hole designs and there are no dumb holes on the course.

Tee to Green: The course was in rough shape from tee to green. A few tee boxes were totally brown and none of them were in great shape. The fairways were in OK shape overall. There were a lot of dead and brown spots and overall inconsistent lies. If you don't mind rolling the ball it's not a big deal, but it was tough to play the ball down.

Greens: The greens were perfect. They are totally grown in and rolling very true. The speeds were consistent from hole to hole and not a single green had any damage.

Overall, the layout and greens are great. The rest of the conditioning is a bit of an issue, but when it improves the course will be fantastic!

Decent Course. Friendly Staff

Decent course. Well maintained and Friendly staff.
For me, too many of the holes were mainly straight with Driver the only option off the tee. Would have preferred some tighter doglegs to mix it up a bit. Liked the raised tees and strategic bunkering - made the course scenic to look at.
Plenty of Wild Turkeys on the course to keep you distracted.

Oh Yeah!

Wonderful to play this big, beautiful, dramatic hitters course on our second to last round in HHI. Greens we perfect, fairways lovely. A delight to play, I played the blues, my wife played the whites, we lost no balls and enjoyed low scores. Great round - thank you!

Beautiful day on the course

Greens were in excellent shape. Tee boxes were pretty thin. Ball washers did not have any water in a majority of them. Carts were excellent with GPS. Staff was really professional. Club house is beautiful. Any golf day is a good day!

Decent course

Decent course. $84 was an ok value for this time of year as prices are starting to peak. Greens in great shape, though on the slower side. Fairways great in spots, not great in others... inconsistent fairway conditions. Fun layout but nothing exiting or spectacular. Loved that the course isn't carved through housing/condos. Quite peaceful. Pace of play was good. Worth playing as a value round in the area. Wouldnt go out of my way to play again until later in the spring/summer when fairways have grown in a bit more.

HHNat

HHNat is an attractive off-island course, fairly straightforward and playable. Fairways, bunkers, and greens were well maintained and playable. Hard to loose a ball. Good value for the dollar.

We love this course

We’ve played here many times over the past 10 years......in the months of March and November when we visit from the wintry north.
It’s always the best conditioned course we play, and great value for our $$
