Golf Advisor: Top Courses in South Carolina
Discounted Rate was worth it
Greens were recently plugged and top dressed but this was publicized and the rates were discounted. Unfortunately, the tee boxes and fairways were in very poor condition. Pace of play was excellent and pro shop staff was friendly.
We had a really good day, from check in to after golf beverages. Friendly staff as well as paired up with a couple locals which helped immensely. The only disappointment was the aeration, which was known ahead of time and rates reflected, so not complaining. A couple tee boxes were a bit rough but all other course conditions were very good (fairways, bunkers). Would love to play again when the greens are back.
The greens and the layout were exceptionally good. The tee boxes were very sparse and although green, the fairways needed more grass to hit off of. The bunkers were unkept and like hitting off concrete. The staff was pleasant and welcoming.
The course is tired looking. Needs to get the weeds out. Fairways and tees need the most work. Sand traps and bunkers are in need of work as well. Have played this course for 10 years and have seen the decay little by little. If you are into cheap play than this course under $40 is good. Would love to play this course if it was a good deal at $50.00. Love the 1st, 8th, 9th, 14th 17th and 18th. If it only looked like Hilton Head National.
1st all staff were great. That makes the start and finish of the round pleasant. The greens were not perfect but a good putting surface. Tees and fairways need to growing in time,, but you can find good places to hit off of. Our place of play was great until the final two holes. Some people are just clueless. We had a local member join us which made the round more enjoyable.. I use golf now on a regular basis, I wish there was a better discount to play here..I will come back..
Nice layout pace of play was great. Negative was the fairway grass has not filled in. Maybe it’s too rarely in the year. Definitely will play again. The course has a great practice facility.
A new one to add to the Hilton head rotation
Nice course at a good rate. Add this to your list of courses to play the next time you visit Hilton head! We will return for sure!
Pinecrest in Bluffton
A nice course still with little grass in places. Greens are large and undulating so don’t get excited if you are on in regulation. Greens moderate speed but in good spring shape. A nice value
Worth the money to play this track
Haven't played Pinecrest in over 4 years. The track is well laid out, winding through woods, and features water hazards on 14 holes. Greens, fairways were in excellent, early season condition. This course plays tighter than many because of hazards (stands of trees or water) lining both sides of most fairways. Sand traps were in good shape, however some looked to be a bit thin. Most tee boxes in great shape, but a couple could benefit from having the tee markers moved more frequently.
Overall, my playing partner and I considered this an excellent track, worth the money, and the 19th hole was good value as well.
We'll definitely be back and with friends.
Note: not certain why this course comes up as "private". It is a public course, that offers memberships. All players we talked with were general public.
Great Intentions Lousy Execution
I have been coming to Hilton Head Island for a long time and over the years have played lots of courses here. I'm not very good but I love the game and playing it. This course has a very challenging layout from all tees but is in the worst shape of any course I've ever played here. It appears as if no one has touched the greens (except to mow the no grass greens). The fairways are bare and the rough is a cow pasture. There's too long a ride between holes and too many bunkers. It appears to have pretensions of being a championship course but there is a superintendent he needs to be replaced or demoted. The staff was friendly and the pace of play was good probably because there were very few people on the course. I'll not return.
While the layout revealed that this course was very good or has potential, it was not in very good condition today. While the greens were in fairly good shape for this time of year, that's about where it stopped. The fairways had minimal pieces of grass in many locations and the tee boxes were fiar as well.
I like this course
This was my first round of the season, and this was a good place to start the year. The course was in nice shape for the time of year, only one hole was cart path only. The rough wasn’t penalizing and the greens rolled good and true. Lots of practice area at this course, the range has been reconfigured nicely. I like this course: holes are varied, water and woods are often a featured and I come away feeling like it was a good golf value .
Strong Layout from all the way back
I Have played here each of the last 5 Winters was pretty disappointed that they changed the 1st hole from a great opening Par 5 to a pretty boring Par 4. I get the reasoning to accommodate the junior program practice area but they took away a great opening hole!! Course is a real challenge from the back tees both length and accuracy are key. Greens rolled real nice and were in good shape. There are a few holes that seem to always be pretty wet but they are still playable. Will definitely keep playing here every winter.
This was our first time playing this course. Fairways were bare and very wet, even though other courses nearby that we played didn't seem to be wet..
