Great course!

Our group absolutely loves this course. Greens were great, fairways outstanding and pace of play was under 4 hours for our foursome.

I would strongly urge anyone to play Dolphin Head.

A Head Course At Hilton

A very enjoyable course typical of the Low Country. Very good conditions all around except bunkers which are hard and thin. Nice layout, great price, helpful staff, good practice facility. Several doglegs you can hit through so select clubs accordingly. Marshal passed us three times on front 9 - but not once on back where we slogged behind a mixed foursome. Note: They do not take AmEx.

Interesting closing holes: A par-3 with a boomerang green. Easy to be on and have no putt. Then a risk-reward par-5 with water all the way down the right side to the green. Also has a 2nd fairway for another tee box. That'd be really risky!

Terrific Course

Terrific generally open course and fairways. Course was in very good condition except for bunkers. The bunkers were thin and the rough was high. Very playable for mid to high handicappers.

Best value in Hilton Head

Played numerous courses on the island and this is by far the best value for the money. Course was in very good condition especially for this time of year. Pace of play was good. Nice layout. Like the fact that they informed you that the greens were aerated before the round.

Pace was slow, but all due to a slow foursome in front of us who was not interested in letting our threesome play through.

Great Value/Great Course

Course is beautiful! Couldn’t believe how nice the fairways were throughout the course. Staff was very nice. Played for 25$ for 18 holes. Super value for the quality of the course!

Great conditions and layout

The only bad thing I can say is that I wish this course had been open to the public sooner. Wow! Immaculate conditions with fast greens, albeit a bit sandy. Wildlife aplenty. I will be back for sure.
