Fine course, a bit challenging
To me the Hills Course is the definition of "fine." The layout is ok, the conditions are fine, it's a bit of a challenge...but there's nothing exceptional (except perhaps how empty it is?). I would go back, I just wouldn't be in any rush to do so. It is, however, home to the two dumbest par-3s I have ever played.
The par-3 3rd is a blind shot. That's right, you can't see the flag. You can't even see the green! It is long past time to cut down the marsh. Quite a concept. And on the par-3 13th, there is a tree that literally blocks the left third of the green. It's not often you can hit a tee shot directly at the flagstick and end up in the canopy of a tree...but you can here! So they've got this mark of distinction going for them I suppose.
I’ve played 90% of the courses on HHI over the years and this was one of the best conditioned I’ve seen. Fairways were nicely mown, rough is consistent, and the greens were excellent (firm, smooth, and reasonably fast). Bunkers were a bit firm here and there, but it seemed mostly due to dampness. Teed off at 730 AM and only saw one other group the whole time—finished in just under 3 hours as a twosome.
No postcard holes, but a decent target golf layout and it isn’t overly tight on most holes. Green complexes are more undulating that most other HHI courses, which adds character.
Expensive and not Worth It
These are the SLOWEST greens I have ever putted on in the entirely of this planet we call Earth.
The round was expensive, slow, and the back 9 was the epitome of boring and uninteresting target golf. Admittedly, the front 9 was a ton of fun.
I’m would not recommend this course to anyone at the current price. Seriously, between the service and greens it’s laughable given the other options in Hilton Head.
Not bad for the money
Greens were painted, but roll was fairly true. Like most courses that don’t overseed for the winter, fairways were somewhat ragged but not as bad as some other courses down here.
It was my first time playing this course.
I was not impressed.
The greens were furry
Also the greens were painted green.
Who does that?
Maybe it’s early in the season!
But it was my second time out this season.
The pro shot, the starter and cart lady were very friendly
Fun layout - good greens
I think this course represents one of the best values on HHI. The greens were in very good condition. For mid-March, the fairways were really pretty good. But, lots of tight lies (that wreck havoc with my game!) around the greens. All in all a great round. Pace of play was under four hours.
we came back
We played for the second day in a row. It was a decent otherwise we wouldn't have played. Pace was a a bit slow. Could have used a ranger. We are from the midwest so judging conditions is difficult but we were happy to play
Always a good day for golf
Did mot play well but was paired with some great people and it is always a great day playing golf.
Good value for the money
The course was in decent condition. We like the layout. We booked another tee time for the next day. The people in front of us were extremely slow but finally let us go through on the back nine. If they didn’t we were looking at a four and a half hour round. We finished in a little over four hours which is slow for us.
Challenging but plenty of open areas to hit to
A little slow but we were a twosome with 4 groups of foursomes in front bur really enjoyed the round. Good value, greens were true and fairways decent given the winter grass
Great course, good fun and a great price
Really enjoyed Arthur Hills... nice layout, good condition, good cart path ...no complaints....have just rebooked and at USD 49.99 it's great value..
Enjoyed the Day
Enjoyed the day despite high winds and cart path only. We have had considerable rain in past two days, but course drained very well. Greens were understandably slow, but in good condition. Pace of play was off due to a slow foursome two groups ahead who were likely not accustomed to cart path only, and club selection and conditions were slowing them down.
Pace of play
We had 4.5” of rain in the last two days course wAs cart path only 100% understand pace play was off by 45 minutes +/- still a course you should play if you’re on the iland!. Great staff
The course was in great shape. Green rolled good. Go play course lots of fun for the money.
Best so far at this price range.
Was very pleasantly surprised. Excellent price for on island. This is a really nice layout. Course was in good shape for this time of year. Tee boxes good, fairways not over seeded so thin but NOT bare spotted so very playable, greens are painted but are in good shape with good bite but a little slow. Bunkers have a good sand base and where well trimmed. Cart paths in excellent condition.
Will play again for sure and would recommend.
nice Track But
Tee off good
Fairways some damp but in general good condition
Traps fluffy with solid base easy to play out of
Rough dormant and short
Greens lush unfortunately Extremely Slow lik velcro on an uphill putt. Not much faster downgrain.
Layout is an interesting track lot of variety. but again greens way too slow for me and my wife.
Most impressive course on HHI
The Hills course is an impressive piece of architecture. The greens are huge and the bunkering around them is beautiful and complex. I found myself just staring at the massive movement of the earth. Every hole received the attention of the architect from tee to green. Great shot-making is a constant requirement. Multiple tees allow golfers of all skill levels to play. This course is an absolute MUST for any golf visitor. And a value at that.
We played three courses in the past 4 days. By far the Hill Course was in the best of shape on and off the fairway.. look forward to playing it again
