Favorite Course on the Island

The Robert Cupp course is my favorite course on the island by far. The opening three holes are awesome and leads into what is a testing rest of the course. Definitely my favorite opening holes I’ve ever played. The layout is unique and challenging which calls for excellent shot making tee to green, especially from the back tees which I played. Conditions were also phenomenal. I am from up north and think Bermuda grass runs slow but the Cupp course runs on the faster side for Bermuda, especially the steep downhill putts. Best value golf course I’ve ever played at $65 on a weekday morning. I played Harbour Town two days later and I enjoyed the Cupp course more and thought it was more difficult at a 4th of the cost. As difficult and as awesome of a layout as some other PGA courses I’ve played. Hole 7 is the most difficult fairway to hit that I have ever seen. Flew through my round in 3 hours playing by myself first tee time out. Staff was very friendly and excellent. Stock up on water and snacks as the club house is not near the turn. Overall excellent experience I can’t wait to play this track again.

My wife and I played and found it very enjoyable. Everyone was nice, from the pro shop staff, the starter and the cart lady.
We were paired with 2 nice gentlemen
We played from the blacks. Which made it a little easier, but had some risk reward shots.
The greens were a little furry, but I guess it was the time of year

Slow and buppy

Starting time just before 1pm, took just short of 5hrs. We hade to wait on almost every tee box, greens where very furry and buppy. It's Tuesday and same holes were being used as weekend. No idea hole placement, wasnt 3 like starter said. Layout of course it's nice. Alittle attention to detail, course would be a 4 star.

Poor conditions here

It’s too bad you don’t get discounts when the course is in such poor shape. I have played here every year for about 12-13 years. This was the worst condition ever for this course. Definite theme for most courses this year, although not very happy. Where do I start. The 1st hole was dry as could be. Fairway was short brown, let’s call it hay. No difference between fairway and rough. The sand traps were a mix bag of some actually sand you could hit out of, while others had a mere covering over the hard clay bottom. Tee’s were poor too. The greens were slow, and many were in rough shape. They were even sprayed so they looked not bad from a distance. Very disappointed this year. As for the marshalls, I think I saw one, but they did nothing to speed up a 5 hour 20 min round.

8 handicaps lunch handed to him

Wow. What a beast. Played from 6500 yards seemed like 7500. Tough long and greens large and undulating. Shot makers coarse. Bring your “A” game for this track. Enjoyed the challenge

Great value

A great deal on Golf Now and a recommendation from a friend prompted me to play this course. Great layout with mostly wide fairways and a few very challenging holes with water in front or around the green. Some large undulating greens which were a little slow due to heavy rain the previous few days.Played from the white tees which were perfect for a 16 handicap senior. Course was very wet and cart path only which made for a bit longer round. Overall a very enjoyable round and would most certainly recommend.

Enjoyable round

In theory, it was suppose to rain most of the afternoon, but it didn't. Others may have chosen not to play, but it was really quite nice. We only saw one other person on our round, so the pace of play was great. It was a little wet which meant cart path only. Cupp is not an easy course to play, so I would not recommend it to handicaps higher than 15 or so. Some nice challenges in playing this course.
