Berkeley Hall Club is a beautiful private golf community situated just off Hilton Head Island in Bluffton. Both courses, the North and the South, were designed by Tom Fazio. The South Course, offers a classic parkland design featuring a beautiful landscape of live oaks and loblolly pines lining the fairway and paints a beautiful backdrop of the golden marshes along the Okatie River. South Course is long, playing 7,147 from the tips, provides tough test for the most skilled players, yet provides greet opportunities to score and can accommodate players of all skill levels. The layout is spectacular, routing through the beautiful lowcountry forest. The fairways are tight, making ball placement paramount for a proper approach to the green. The course offers a great blend of water holes, further emphasizing the need for accuracy. The rough is surprisingly thick, with the possibility of the ball sitting down to where you can only partially see it. Around the green a player will find diabolically deep bunkers with high faces, truly penalizing players that find them. The greens are well contoured and blistering fast, running as true as they come. Berkeley Hall South features more false fronts than any course I’ve experienced in the Lowcountry. The conditions are pristine, from tee box to green, and are some of the best I’ve ever played with no blemishes or spotty areas to be found. The facilities are outstanding, with a top class practice area and a picturesque clubhouse most courses dream of. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the guest fees are very reasonable for a course of this caliber. It is no wonder why the South Course was continuously chosen to hold the Players Amateur for seven consecutive years.
Course Rating: 9.7/10
