A New HHI favourite
Booked through Golf Now and got a reasonable price for mid daytime Staff was great and a good challenging layout but not too scary for high handicappers. Only negative was when we finished it was near dark and clubhouse was closed up. Not a big deal but would’ve been nice to know.
Gary Player design and has all his subtle green complexes.Wonderful back nine with three final holes as good
as it gets, final par five best hole I have played so far in Hilton head area. Would have scored condition better
but tee boxes a bit scruffy and a few hole edges were worn, but greens putted well. Staff allround first class.
I am a14 handicap golfer on vacation from England and play a lot of golf , this course rates good value for the
money and I will return and recommend.
Staff friendly. Was teamed up with two really nice guys. Fairways good. Greens had been aeriated recently and had not recovered yet. Very bumpy and inconsistent. Nice layout
Course was in excellent condition, especially for August weather. Staff was very friendly.
Great Layout, Outstanding Staff
This my second time playing Dolphin Head and it is now on my list to play every time I come to Hilton Head! The staff is friendly and helpful and pace of play (just under 4 hours) is great but never felt rushed. The layout is fair with just enough challenge to keep you honest but not so penalizing that it takes the fun out.
Great course layout. Friendly staff. Will definitely play again and recommend to others!
Lots of options in this area, but I really enjoyed my round here. Decent price and the course was in great shape. Greens were perfect and rolled true. I would play again.
Another HH Plantation Treasure
I played all four of the Hilton Head Plantation courses this week (Oyster Reef, Bear Creek, CC of Hilton Head, and Dolphin Head). They are all TOP-SHELF tracks.
I was a little concerned about Dolphin Head because the last time I played it, they were over-the-top adamant about their 4-hour round policy. Something's changed because the starter never mentioned it. The rangers never mentioned it. And, guess what? We finished our round In 3:57 (without ever feeling rushed)!
Conditions are PERFECT from teebox through green. Beverage cart was out and running on a Friday morning. Practice facilities are stellar.
This is private country club golf available for (limited) public play golf. DO NOT MISS OUT ON PLAYING THIS COURSE!
Greens are in really good shape
Definitely recommend playing Dolphin Head. They have everything you would expect from a Hilton Head Island course.
Great Value Course
Well I wasn't expecting much but for the price it was really good. Greens were surprisingly true. Will be back.
For everything outside of the condition of the course. Staff, Range area, Layout. I don't think we can do half stars but would go 3.5. I am a very tough critic. If a course gets a 5 it's special.
Why only 3 star rating, just curious?
Great gem on the island
Been coming to the island for 20 years. Just learned of this course word of mouth. Wow, great track at a very reasonable price. Will definitely be back. Can’t wait to play it again!
Course is in good shape but very slick greens and pitiful sand traps. Cart guys are nice. Very rude Ranger threatened to force skipping a hole if we did not play faster. No groups were waiting on us and there was no reason for this other than the course double booking tee times on the front and back. Due to poor communication a second ranger told us the same thing less than a hole later. This ruined the next 3-4 holes for me as I waited for another ranger to appear. Other nicer courses with better amenities are available on the island. Go somewhere else
We'll be back again!!!!
Overall well maintained course. Fun to play and not over the top difficult for first time play. You can find yourself in trouble though with plenty of bunkers and water. Staff was very informative and friendly! We'll definitely be back to play this course again!
A fair course for all levels of golfer
We played this course about 5 days after they aerated it so we didn’t get a true feel for it. The layout was fine and IMO it would be good for the average golfer. Some water can make approach shots interesting but for the most part the course is very straightforward.
Course was great it’s the golfnow web site that is the problem. I attempted to contact customer service yesterday and the wait was an hour. There are other tee time services and I guess I will begin using them. My cell is8163053581 if anyone should want to assist.
Very nice course
Beautiful golf course. There were some holes that were a bit dried out.
A nice course. It has a good layout and the course was in good shape. There was a little wait on shots on the back nine. Overall, an enjoyable experience
Losing it’s fame
I used to enjoy this course, but feel it has gone down hill over the past 5 years. At one time it was in great shape, but it has continued to decline. The greens are firm, but minimal grass. The fairways are not much better. A once thriving private course has gone semi private in an effort to probably gain finances to care for the course. It will be a few years before I plan to return as it is not cheap to play here. So for the value based on quality, there are many better places to play on the island. Also the pace of play here was extremely slow at 5 hours, even though they stress their goal is to maintain 4 hours.
