It was the hottest day of the year. They kept pace of play quite fast. 18 holes in 3hr 20min. As well, water was everywhere and they reminded everyone to stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, watch for wildlife. Water stations about every four holes.

Fairways pretty wide. Water on most holes, but usually not problematic. It helps greatly to have someone with you who is familiar with the course; a couple holes have water in unpredictable unmarked spots. Most water is marked by tall grasses visible from 150 yards. Greens great( 17 of 18). Tee boxes pretty chewed up( we tees off at 12:30). Roughs very short and no problems. Course length needed driver on at least 2 holes( I teed off on par 4’s and 5’s with 3 wood and found water on one hole because I did not bring driver). I am 70 yo make 23 handicap and shot 1 over cap. However I did not play particularly well. I would give course a personal scope rating of about 120. Not a difficult course. Played Galleon and the other 9 hole segment( cannot remember name, but it was not the Brigantine 9 holes).

A great day. Played an 18 hole round by myself in just over 2 hours!! Played through one other foursome on the front nine. Did not see another group until the last hole on the back. They we finishing on the green as I aprroached. A great practice range with a separate chipping green and practice bunker. I showed up 11/2 hours early hoping to get my round in so I could make it to dinner early. The starter worked with me to get me out and I did not have to wait

The greens were very coarse and slow. Once you got the courage to hit the ball they would drop. All in all it was a good day.

Course was in pretty good shape but had several bare spots on the greens as well as around the fairways. For the price they are charging compared to other top notch courses in the area it's not comparable.

Ranger made a big deal of our crew stopping at 9 and running to the car to get some advil. More than likely won't play this course again due to the ranger issue and the course shape unless they drop their prices to reflect.

I have played here before, but I did not have the same impression. We played 4 golf courses this week at HHI and Shipyard had what seemed to be the least interest in the customer. It was hot, and there were no water cooler/jugs anywhere on the course. When I asked about this they responded that there is only water and ice on number nine, and of course a beverage cart would come around soon. Really??!!?? The staff was just not as friendly as I had found at the other courses. We were not allowed to drive the golf cart to our vehicle to unload the clubs (probably some liability baloney). Seriously, ...you are concerned for me driving the golf cart in the parking lot but not concerned about me having a heat stroke due to dehydration while on the course. ???? get a clue! The course conditions were not quite at the level where I expected, however, the price was reasonable for the course conditions, $35 in early afternoon. Overall, difficult to recommend Shipyard to a friend. We have been coming to HHI to golf (family golf outing) for about six years now, Shipyard will not likely be in our plans for next year.

BTW, best experience/course this trip, Port Royal. We paid more ($79 in the early morning) but we certainly enjoyed it, beautiful course. Worth the extra money.

Had 9 am teetime on thurs, June 14.

The day started with a disturbingly long line to pay in the pro shop (possible that the three nine hole arrangement causes this; in which case the logical recommendation is to add another pay station).

The real fun started when we went outside to get settled into our carts:

1. I was chastised for taking/stealing(?) an extra score card from an idle cart (“next time ask”).

2. My friend was scolded for filling his own range ball bucket even though he was told by the pro shop to do just that (“you are taking too many balls and next time just ask me”).

3. The starter was impatient to get all 4 receipts (Q: doesn’t a quality course notify the starter when all players have paid?). He went-on to tell me how lousy a morning he was having with golfers showing-up late and others running to the (hopefully) temporary trailer rest room.

The course itself was fine but unfortunately that wasn’t the main storyline for this round of vacation golf.

My dad and I played Shipyard after not having played there in 10+ years. It used to be well kept and manicured but that is hardly the case anymore. The greens were ok but many had a lot of bad spots. The approach areas around the greens were horrible, lots of wash and bare spots. The bunkers were full of water that had been there a while. The fairways and greens had not been cut. The overall appearance of the whole facility appeared to be run down. It’s a shame because I like the layout. But, we will not be back. You expect a lot more when you pay to play on HHI.
