Great track. Fun and fair.

This is a nice course. Fairways were in great shape. Paths smooth. Traps were typical for the area, not fluffy, but clean and well maintained. Tee boxes were fine. The greens looked gorgeous. Probably aerated and sanded several weeks ago. Most were great, just slow.
Again, this course is a must play on the island. You’ll probably encounter a few gators too.
After your round, you’ll want to hit up the pub. Good tap selection and good food.

Fairways in good shape

The greens were horrible. Must have recently been aerated, but sand everywhere and extremely bumpy. I like the course but you won’t get an accurate score here because putting was impossible! I wish I had been advised of the conditions when I booked this. I would have played somewhere else.

Yes Sir, we have just aerated our course. With aeration we have to fill the holes with sand. We do try our best to let every one of our guests know that we have been aerated, so i do apologize that you were not informed. With some good weather, we will return to great shape.
We hope to have you back.

We apologize for the maintenance on the golf course, aerating is a necessary evil. That is why we offer a discounted rate. We will return to form with good weather. We hope to have you back here soon

Nice Afternoon

Course practiced social distancing by having 1 to a cart. This helped pace of play. Staff was helpful and friendly in getting us on and off the course. Greens were in good condition. Course conditions were generally good but fairways were still tight lies from winter conditions. Would recommend course as good value for hot deal.

Very enjoyable round

Due to the covid 19 situation, Hilton Head is very quiet and so are the golf courses. It’s a great time to play on nice courses without it being packed. Today was so laid back and fun. The staff are very friendly and just happy to serve you. Great snacks despite the closure of the restaurant. We had chicken salad sandwich and a couple of beers, potato chips for less than $15.
