Canadians

Paired with three Canadians. We enjoyed each other’s company. Had fun. However the course was overcooked and we backed up on the last nine. We kept up with the foursome in front of us but even though they were in the green and we were in our approach shot position the ranger told us to keep up. ☹️

Pleasantly Surprised

First time playing this course and we had a great day. The greens are slow but healthy. I'm sure they could speed them up when they want to. The conditions of the fairways and roughs were average at best but very playable. We really like the architecture of the two nines we played, Galleon and Clipper. Every hole was interesting and challenging. We'll definitely go back.

The pro shop is very nice and fully stocked. The staff were exceptional and friendly.

Thanks for your review! Our greens keeper does his best but with having Zoysia grass greens we have a hard time getting them to roll faster than 9 1/2 in the summer. When it gets cooler out they will speed up tremendously. We hope to see you back here soon!

Loved the two course s we played (Gideon and Clipper). Had a couple of slow groups ahead of us but it was fine. Greens were perfect and the courses were challenging yet fun.

Challenging but still fun to play.

This was my first time playing here I'll be back to play again. I played Galleon & Clipper. It was challenging at times but I loved the layout. The staff was very friendly.

Friendly staff at Shipyard

The course is a great value for a Golf Now hot deal! The fairways and greens were in great shape. The tee boxes a bit rough but if you are using tee no problem. The pace of play was slow but we finished in just over 4 hrs. The staff was very accommodating including the cart lady. Will play again during another visit to Hilton Head

Met a nice couple from Florida...they struggled and the round took a little over four hours but I enjoyed their company. My goal for the day was to work with my 1 iron and my 2 iron and was happy with the results.

Clipper/Galeon

My 2 overall rating may seem severe but for the area I considered it below average. My biggest complaint was the teeing areas. One of the nines tee markers were tiny wood markers that you could barely see. This was especially true of the ladies tees. Furthermore the ladies tees seemed to be an after thought: basically a closely mowed are in the fairway. The areas themselves were in poor condition. Fairways were average and greens good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Did have a problem with the maintenance crew as the mowers did not yield at all to us. On one hole the mower drove close behind me as I was hitting.
