It had been a week since the snow and ice storm hit and many hours of below freezing temps, but I thought the course was in better shape than I thought it would be. The greens were soft, medium speed and putted true. Traps were well maintained. Enjoyable round.

Played Robbers Row for our second trip to Port Royal, and really enjoyed our round. Greens were fantastic...held good shots, were nice and quick, and putted true.

Liked the layout better than Barony, which is supposed to be their top track. A few "goofy" holes on Barony, where Robbers was laid out with everything in front of you. Not the longest or most demanding, but a good mix of doglegs and gentle meanderings that defined the holes. Couple 420+ par 4's ( from the tips) to start the back side, and a drive over marsh and trees on backside par 5 made for some fun, but demanding shots.

The fairways were generous enough, but some of the tee boxes were rough, only reason I didn't rate as 5-star.

Good course for a levels of play, as back tees made me think and perform, and up tees were perfect for my wife.

Absolutely beautiful bar and grill for post round enjoyment, and the staff could not have been nicer. We will definitely be back here, and recommend Port Royal, and especially Robbers Row, highly.

I like this course but did not play well. Some sand traps thin and some par 4 holes had cart path only which slowed play (in addition to threesome in front of us). Friendly staff.

I always try to play the Port Royal courses in HHI. Got to play Robbers Row again after a couple years and really enjoyed this long and rather challenging course where the variety of hole designs are well suited for average to advanced players. Port Royal's excellent clubhouse facilities, welcoming staff who treat you great, and well maintained courses make playing any of their courses well worth a visit.

The day started out with a chill in the air as the temperatures were in the mid 40's, but the brisk pace kept us from staying chilly. Entire round took about 3 and half hours. Course was in great shape. Staff was friendly, helpful and very pleasant.
