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.

It’s a bit of a drive from the island but for a19 hcp like me I love this place. Great layout, great fairways and greens rolled true. I played on Thursday and Saturday and shot 88 and 87. Friendly staff and once the clubhouse is ready this place will be ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The course was in good condition. The sand bunkers needed some work. The greens were a little slow. Overall, it was worth checking out this course. I would say a good value for the money. As a twosome, we were stuck behind some butt-heads in a foursome that would not let us through until we skipped a hole - so that was a little damper on the experience.

course is in great shape. Liked that they had ice and water machines on both the front and back 9. Looks like the new Clubhouse should be ready to go anytime. Greens were a little slow but rolled true. Temperature was 100+ so there weren’t many people playing which was nice. Will play again.

I have played this course many times and have no serious complaints. It is fairly long (6200 from the whites), but relatively flat with decent landing areas off the tee. The bunkers could have had more sand, but other than that the playing conditions were very good. It is not a resort type course (ie, aesthetics) but I do not think anyone would be disappointed playing there.

Good course off I95 to for everyone to meet for first day of Hilton Head long weekend. We picked this course for the location due to guys coming up I95 from north and the south. We liked the course layout but the only problem were the greens were bumpy and not a good roll. Bunkers were packed down with puddles in them but there has been a lot of rain even before we came. We had to wait out some rain and finished without a problem.Staff was great, price was great. We would play again and it was good to get some swings at a fair rate on the day of travel,

Unfortunately the course had received a lot of rain. It was wet and cartpath only. However, the fairways were smooth and in great shape. The greens were a little inconsistent due to being early in the season still. I expect them to improve over the summer. The layout was beautiful and a unique combination of forgiving yet challenging. I look forward to playing in a couple months and in dryer conditions.
