Sadly, this course closed its doors on Monday, June 27, 2016. Not because it wasn't profitable, but because the management company and the owner could not come to a mutually agreeable contract. This course offered country club conditions with perfect, and I mean perfect, greens. It was out in the middle of nowhere, which added to its appeal, with no houses to mar the view. A total shame. Hopefully something will be done to re-open this course, and soon.

This course is absolutely amazing. I've played courses in Bluffton, Hilton Head, and Charleston several times but Penny Branch is hands down my favorite course. This course has no houses and its extremely quiet. Our tee time was at 4:00 PM and the weather was nice and the Greens and Fairways were rolling and well kept. Truly amazing to have such nice course out in the country where you can walk in at anytime and play a round for only $25. This course is definitely worth the money and not too difficult for a young golfer like myself.

I have played this course probably 25 times or so the past 10 years, and the day I played it, it was in fantastic condition, as usual. I called to see if the greens had been overseeded and was told yes, but they were still good. They were right. How they can maintain this course on the low green fees they charge (I paid $18 to walk on a Wednesday) is beyond me....and the range balls are good, too. The only negative is that a few of the holes are bland, but thre are no tricked-up ones. This also may be the quietest course in the country.
