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.

FUN COURSE

We have played this course several times in the past several years and have enjoyed it each time. Greens are in great shape. We gave it a 4 star because several of the ladies tee boxes were pretty sandy and some fairways were a little thin on grass. This could be due to it being off season. Pace of play was great! We would recommend this course.

best course in HHI so far

Played from the tips, as I prefer 6500 yds, but no tee box at that length. Really enjoyed this course, liked the layout. Very playable with room to find the fairway from the back tees. Greens were the best I've seen recently. Can't wait to come back.

Good Course

Course greens were in good shape for the time of year we played. Fairways were brown but playable. We have played HH National several times and have found the course in good shape. The only issue we had was that we were charged more than what GolfNow has stated would be due at the course. This is the second time this week that GolfNow costs did not match what the course charges.

Hello. We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. Thank you for the 4-stars! We use a dynamic pricing strategy for our tee times. This means our tee time prices often fluctuate, impacted by things such as weather, competition, local events (such as college football) and more. We offer all of our available tee times online, however, dynamic golf rates are not available through our golf shop. We are sorry for any confusion. We aim for a 5 star experience, so we always welcome feedback for improvement. Thank you for playing Hilton Head.

Great greens

Having played this course for the last 35 years I can truthfully say it will continue to stay on my play list. 15 more years would make it 50 years playing HHN and make me an old man.

Great Course

Hilton Head National was a great, player-friendly course. There were some challenging pin placements, but greens were in great shape. Course is well-maintained. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. We had 4 different levels of golfers in our group from single digit blue tee to ladies tee and everyone had a great experience - a definite come-back course.

Awesome Course!!!

This was my first time playing Hilton Head National despite vacationing on the island for years. The course is a 5 Star facility across the board! The practice facility is wonderful, the staff is extremely friendly/helpful & the off course amenities are great! The course itself is very fair and playable for golfers of all abilities. The conditions for January are by far the best we played all week (6 rounds played on 5 different courses). The greens were extremely fast, but rolled true throughout the entire round. I will definitely be back!

Course and staff are great!

Everyone from the pro shop staff to the starter to the snack bar staff were great. They were friendly, helpful and made you feel like they really wanted to make your visit memorable. Course was in great shape and was very playable especially for someone from a colder climate playing after a several month layoff.

Nice layout

The course is tucked back back off the road, and cut into the natural beauty of the surrounding area...no homes/communities,very private. Course is in good shape and the layout made for a very enjoyable game.
