Enjoyed this course!

This is a really nice course. The staff was friendly from the check-in to the returning of the cart. I guess during this time of year they are not very busy which was great for me. I got to hit some free range balls and could tee off when I was ready. The facilities were great as well as the course. I played the Cupp course and really enjoyed the round. However, I had to get used to the greens which were fast to me. Also, a couple of the holes have greens that extend very close to the edge of a retaining wall ... leading right to a drop off into the water. So, if you miss your putt, your ball can very easily roll over the edge into the wet stuff!

Beautiful Island Golf

First time back in several years. I had forgotten how beautiful this course is. Every hole tells a story. Robert Cupp has designed a real winner. It plays longer than the yardage would indicate. Because of the difficulty I would suggest not playing form the wrong tees. Play up one set.

Awesome Cupp Course

Course was in the best shape of our trip to Hilton head so far! Fairways were great and trimed down, rough was fair and the greens rolled fantastic! Highly recommend this course.

Less than adequate

NO BALLS ON PRACTICE RANGE. Slow pace of play, disorganized at the starting tee, coarse in fair condition, clumps of grass all over the fairway.

Good Course for $$$

Course is in great shape. Fun golf course. Not typical photogenic holes like other courses in the area. Narrow fairways and fast greens but a challenging, fun course to play.

Thank you for your 4-star rating! We are sorry for the much slower than average pace of play. Typically, we have a nice mix on both courses and that allows us to have a great pace of play. Being one course down doesn't help and we appreciate your understanding. Please let us know when you'll book another round with us soon as we look forward to your next visit.

Poor Management

First time at this course, and the last. Pro shop employee seemed like I was bothering him because I was playing latter in the day at a reduced rate. There was no one to guide us to the first tee or the course we were on since it was a 36 hole course. Once we got to what we thought was our course there was no starter. Pace of play was horrible. Once we caught up to a foursome after 3 holes we waited 10 minutes at the each hole on the tee while they hit 3 balls each off the tee and we were right there watching. No Ranger of course, so my wife and I left after only 10 holes. No respect from the group of guys in front and I guess management cares less what goes on after prime time. Play early or forget this place.

We came back

A foursome of family and friends come to HH every year to play golf. Both of the Palmetto Hall courses are always on our hit list. The Cupp course was very nice. Fairways, greens and bunkers are always well maintained. Greens were medium fast and rolled well. The staff was helpful and we were happy with the pace of play. There are some holes that had some tricky greens but we had a great time in this course.
