Length 6730
Slope 133
Rating 72.8
Type Public
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.

The greens were fast and true. Although they were very firm they would hold amazingly well. We had a twosome and played in just over 3 hours. Great day

Great Time

Played mid morning and got very hot. Staff at arrival very friendly and courteous. Playing as a two ball pace of play was good and we were round in 3 1/2 hours. Plenty water stations at tees. Course in very good condition and greens were in very good condition with lots of subtle breaks. Overall a really good day and most enjoyable and I would recommend to friends.

Very Nice Course

This was my first time at this course. The greens are large. They roll fast and true. Fairways are pretty open compared to most courses in the area. This course is in great shape. Can"t wait for my next trip to the area and play again.

Excellent Golf Course

This course if one of the best around HHI, especially considering it is under $100 to play! There are a number of picturesque holes and the course makes great use of the surrounding terrain. There are holes with trees strategically placed forcing the player to hit tactical shots. The entire course was in great shape, the greens rolled consistently and at an okay speed, I would have liked them to be a bit quicker. The staff was very helpful and friendly. If you are coming to Hilton Head this course, without question, should be near the top of your list of course to play!

The course is challenging, great condition, & overall fun to play.

Our one pet peeve, no personal coolers allowed, yet no coolers provided on carts. This is crazy. In my experience all high quality courses like Hilton Head National provide coolers with ice. 85+ temp. with very high humidity you have to wait 3 plus holes for cold water holes doesn't make sense.

Great Day

2pm tee time. Hot deals.

staff was good, easy access, have to drive off the Island of Hilton Head but no big deal. Course was empty when I went and the starter let me go as soon as I was warmed up. Range was top notch. Condition of the course was very good. Greens were straight and easy. Short course off the whites. Played blues and whites. Great deal.
