First Time Playing

Excellent Greens!

First time on this course. While I expected tees, fairways, and greens to be over seeded, the greens rolled true and had some speed to them .

Bunkers were a little thin on sand but well maintained. Holes had a nice variety of dog legs going right and left.

I will come back next time in HHI!

This course represents the type of golf experience you want

I really enjoyed playing this course.. the layout is challenging while diverse, not feeling like you are playing the same hole again and again. This is also the place to see alligators! I also found the warm up areas superior to the other courses I’ve played in the area

enjoyed the course, a bit windy at times but not unusual on the Island. Some very challenging holes, with a need to take an extra club at times.

Thanks for your feedback!
due to the island being at sea level most visitors do need to take an extra club on all shots.

Women are Senior too!

Good course, friendly staff, greens were very good, great layout - some holes too long.

They only had RED tees about 1/2 the time, and they were not moved up enough. My wife is a good golfer, but nearly a senior. Red tees would make it much more fair. She was hitting from tees [green tees] same as the men she was playing with, half the time. Nobody was pleased with this arrangement. Thanks,

Hello sir, We completely understand your displeasure with us. The Green Tees were originally our most "forward" set of tees and we put in several red tees to shorten our course still. As the course was not designed for a set of red tees we have had to plot and find spots for them, we are still planning on adding more red tees but we must first find an appropriate spot for them. We hope you understand.
Thank you.

Shipyard unique course

Shipyard golf was a good experience. Late fall golf, course was taken care of so no issues with leaves. Greens a little bumpy and being worked, but no problems to speak of. Would play again.
