Solid, Fun Cupp Design

I’ve played 10-12 Hilton Head courses over the years. I love playing a course for the first time, and Palmetto Hall’s Robert Cupp course did not disappoint. The greens are, well, different. Some are huge, others tiny, and there are some interesting shapes (rectangular, long and skinny) and undulations. Not a lot of greenside bunkers. I played the blue tees, which are 6500 yards. Between the breezes and being at sea level, it played longer than its yardage. The Cupp course is not particularly scenic until the end - where 15 through 18 are beautiful, classic Hilton Head holes that stack up some of the best on the island.

Challenging

Both courses at the Palmetto Hall Plantation are outstanding. The Robert Cupp Course was in outstanding condition. Tee boxes, traps, fairways and greens are in excellent condition.

A priority is to keep your tee ball in the fairway. Playing from the rough will make your day very long and stressful.

I would recommend this course to anyone to play.

Nice course with some challenging holes.

Great experience, friendly staff.

The course has many wide fairways for safe driving but some challenging holes requiring lay-up or water carry strategy.

Definitely will play again.

Beautiful Design and GolfNow Price

The experience was top notch starting with the pro shop staff. They were very friendly and polite as were the cart attendants. The $25.00 special included cart and range balls. The course was in EXCELLENT condition. Greens were smooth and fast, fairways were lush and well mowed, tee boxes were better than the fairways of some courses. Note, this course places a premium on shot making! Many of the tee shots contend with hazards and dog legs that favor working the ball. We played from the blues which made many of the par 4s over 400 yards. The layout is challenging! Will gladly play this course again, especially at this price.

Tough, but beautiful course

I enjoyed playing the Cupp course. It had a nice setup with difficult pin placements. My only negative comment is concerning the pace of play; it was simply terrible. Other than that, I enjoyed the course and will play it again.
