Has some testing holes but generally moderate.Some of the greens had spots of very little grass and had sand in its place.
I looked forward to a return engagement at Old South but came away disappointed. The irrigation system was run for too long resulting in balls plugging in many places. The greens were covered in heavy dew for the majority of the round and were very slow.
Marsh and wildlife
Love the layout. With the marsh and all the different types of wildlife it was a great experience.
We are glad you played Old South and enjoyed the layout and the abundant wildlife. It makes for a fun day.
We play this course every time we come to Hilton Head and it's always a good experience. Nice marsh views on several holes and some challenges as well. Back nine is more difficult for me. Greens are good, a little grainy but that is true with a lot of courses this time of year. Rough is manageable, and fairways are really good. Ball just sits up nicely. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Will be back again.
We appreciate your great comments and are glad you enjoyed your day at Old South. We love to hear from our loyal supporters and look forward to seeing you again.
One of my favorite HHI courses
Played as a twosome on a Sunday afternoon and finished in 3 1/2 hours. Staff is always friendly. It is a nice layout with a couple quirky holes where you can hit too long or too short, with carries over junk on both tee and green shots. (Suggest you go for long and pray.) Greens a little slow due to heat and rain and the areas fronting the greens were very soft, so you can't play for bump and run shots. Practice areas are good. The course is a good value and is the first course on Bluffton off HHI.
PS: If there is an alligator on the floating putting green behind the clubhouse, it's not a fake.
Best Views Around
I was pleasantly surprised at how picturesque this course was, there are about a half dozen holes right on the water with views overlooking the wetlands. This course also offers a number of unique holes with 90 degree doglegs requiring the player to hit to a landing area then to the green. I did not get much of "links" feel when playing the course. It would have been nice if the fairways were faster and there were more bunkers dotted around. The greens were in pretty rough shape unfortunately, with large sandy spots on many of them and they were quite slow. I would definitely recommend playing this course, and hopefully the greens with heal and the course with return to excellent condition.
We appreciate your 4 star review. Old South is very scenic with challenges for all levels. The greens have been slow to recover from aerification but soon should be rolling well as we head into fall. We hope to see you again!
Not a fan of the layout
Second time playing this course and it may just be me but I don't enjoy the design - especially the marsh holes. Course was in decent shape. Stopped at turn to pick something up, the dogs looked like they were spinning on the grill there for a few days. The staff was sweet and apologetic and offered to make a turkey sandwich. Not sure I'll be back but got a good deal so I won't say never.
We regret you did not enjoy the layout - most golfers do like the variety and challenge. All food is prepared fresh daily and we are well known for great lunches. Perhaps another round will change your mind. We hope to see you again.
Thanks for your 5-star review. We hope you play again soon.
