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.

Great Round

We score a "hot" time and it was well worth it. Every aspect of the course was in 5***** condition. Plenty of coolers on the course to refill water bottles and a cart that made frequent trips around the course for snacks. Club house staff was great, welcome attendants were nice, starter let us go off 30 minutes early. Excellent round, well worth the $$$.

Nice lay out, but nothing incredibly special

There were some pretty holes but not a whole lot featured water or marsh. The fairways and greens were in good shape for the most part but the greens were a little slow. The tee boxes were splotchy on some holes. Some areas of disrepair - washed out mulch or dead spots around bunkers or greens. No edging along a lot of the side walks. this Is a manageable course for the average golfer. We had a special rate from a hot deal, but I wouldn’t be nearly as happy if I had spent $90 a person. All in all, it’s a good course. Some holes are better than others, there are some great views but also a few bad spots.

Great conditions!

Fairways ample wide and very easy to hit from. Ball floated on top of the grass. Greens rolled very true. Not fast greens, but it was the hot season. Held very well also. Pace of play on a Sunday was awesome.
