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.

Would play others first

Pros: Good condition, good price.

Cons: Driving range closed and no discount. No starter. No rangers and a twosome attempted to inserted themselves on the 8th hole! Quirky bunkers and greens.

Net: Bottom of the list for Hilton Head courses.

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.
