Lots of Gators sunning today

As usual, no issues with Shipyard. Play this cours multiples times every year. Greens and fairways in good shape. Traps could use some more sand though. Pleasant staff and friendly starter and Marshall’s. Good price and great value, especially if you can get a hot deal through GolfNow.

Galleon Good - Clipper Poor

Front nine on the Galleon was good, nice layout and well maintained. Second nine on the Clipper was extremely disappointing. Tees and fairways were a "mess", very poorly maintained - not worth the money. Suggest the value for the dollar was well below what we paid.

Good value

Green said we’re in great shape and the bunkers were good. The grass on tee blocks on Clipper needed cutting. My favourite course in Hilton Head. Wished We’d could have played Brigantine instead of Clipper.

Vacation In Hilton Head

It was a cool & slightly windy morning. I hadn't played Shipyard for 4 yrs. I wasn't disappointed. For this time of the year the course was in pretty good shape. The greens were excellent. Being a Yankee, teeing off in the cool early morning was not an issue. Consequently, the course wasn't crowded (except for alligators sunning themselves) so we were able to move at a good pace and finished in about 3 1/2 hrs. The price is a bit high for a senior and what I am use to, but this is Hilton Head in March and the rates just went up. Overall I enjoyed my outing.

Glad I went

From arrival to departure, overall super positive. Staff were excellent. Greens were good, tees boxes were a little scruffy. Pace was perfect. Biggest disappointment... albeit small... water fountain mid way thru first nine had been removed and drink dispenser was out of order. No water for drinks anywhere and half way house was closed. That aside, course was in terrific late February conditions.

A Gem in the Middle of HHI

Although the review shows Galleon/Brigantine our 18-hole circuit was the Galleon/Clipper version of this 9-hole, 3 course facility.

The courses were in great shape for the time of year - fairways and greens rolled true, bunkers were slightly wet but remained soft.

Our ratings for other parts of the facility reflect the qualit'y pro shop, 19th hole and staff.

Finally, after our 4th course in 4 days reality set in as we found the hole distances longer than our home courses. The whites on par 3's were 150 or more, and many par 4's took 3 shots to get on the greens.

Good course architecture.

My wife and I had a fun afternoon. The course presented itself well for first time visitors. No tricked up holes and very little forced carry is involved. The zoysia greens rolled true and the bunkers were well kept. Make sure you stop at the turn for the best hot dog on Hilton Head. This was in mid-February so the fairways and rough were dormant. The staff was friendly and professional.

Shipyard in February

This is a good course with 27 holes. The course is very well run and the staff are friendly. There is a driving range, chipping green and a putting green. Good value for your money.
