The Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes is a Tom Fazio design that is challenging, but with five sets of tees it is versatile enough for players of all skill levels. Fazio deftly utilized the native wetlands and numerous lakes that are interspersed across the landscape, incorporating them along the expansive fairways and angled greens. The tricky greens have been carefully molded and contoured to offer a variety of pin placements. In addition to the water hazards, there are also numerous strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. The golf course will test your shot-making skills as well as your creativity. To complement the golf course, Hilton Head Lakes offers an equally impressive 36-acre, double-ended practice facility with target greens, bunkers, multiple practice greens, and even a par-3 short course.

Wonderful back 9

A very nice course with some great holes.
The back 9 was my favourite, no homes around these holes, therefore it has a far better feel to it.

Great value

I haven’t been to this course for several years. What a change! Nice new clubhouse, driving range and putting green. Greens were fast and rolled great. Wide open fairways in great condition. Great Hot Deal price on Golf Now. Very few groups- played in 3+ hours. I’ll be back.

Very good, challenging track

The course is in very good shape at this time. Greens are fast and true, the fairways are in great shape, the Bermuda rough is long enough to want to avoid it, but not devastating if in it. The only inconsistency on the course is the sand traps, but if avoided (tough to do here), then a really great value for the money.

This course always plays long, and the greens are firm, so a lot of roll. Staff is very friendly, but if the course is quiet, as it was when we played, then the only refreshment on the course are 2 comfort stations, one on each nine.

Greens...

The last couple of outings at the Lakes have left us wondering what's going on with the greens. Reading some of the last few reviews it appears we were playing another course or there is a second set of greens we weren't aware of. The greens we played were in very rough shape and akin to trying to putt on a hardwood floor that was more brown than green. Realizing that we are moving to another season but do not recall the greens in this rough a shape this time of the year..

The course has come a long way in the last couple of years so let's hope the excellent progress continues as this is a nice course.

Wide Open Spaces

Bit of a hike to get there from Hilton Head but a very enjoyable course. Wide fairways, receptive greens that break less than you read. bunkers not punishing, water on many holes but not really in play unless you hit it sideways. Unwalkable even if they let you. Long distances between greens and next tee on many holes. Back 9 is a nature preserve - no houses. Great place to start your golf vacation.

Long round

Course was in good shape. The rough a little long for the average golfer. Played alone on front nine there were no other golfers to pair up with. A group of women golfers started on back nine. Took forever to play the back.

Great fun and relaxing play

One of the best courses in the area for the price. Well maintained open fairways with challenging greens. Nice layout with water and bunkers to challenge all levels. First time playing here and will definitely be back again.

Relaxing round

Booked through Golfnow. As a single, they actually put me out by myself at 8am. Quickly caught up to a really nice couple. Played with them, the rest of the way. Greens were a little threadbare. I could see the punch marks in them. Fairways were good and a lot of the traps could have benefitted from more sand. The sand was packed and in some places, wet. Not a walkable course, since the distance between holes can be more than a half a mile.
Enjoyable day. Will go back

Good and bad

The course is in good condition, fairways have plenty of grass and greens roll very well. I am in eight handicap in my boys who are 30 and 26 or about 18 handicaps and when we play together I try to encourage them to play the forward tees so they enjoy the road more and it doesn’t take them long to play as well. We played the green trees which is as far forward as you can play end it still long for them. Fairways are in good condition but lies are very tight and although the greens roll well they were fast as lightning and there’s not a flat putt on the course. Golf is on the decline for the things I mentioned, nobody wants to take five hours to play so they can shoot 100 anymore, lighten up and take some bite out of this course so people can enjoy themselves. When it becomes a qualifier for the Georgia amateur you can go back to where it is . I shot a 78 so I’m not bitter I just know most golfers would struggle here.

Great Course

Absolutely loved the course amazing fairways and the greens were super fast but beautiful. The pace of play got slow at times the bigger groups out there played slow but an amazing course. Can’t wait to get back out there again just hopefully it won’t be as hot.
