Hilton Head Course Reviews

Hilton Head National

Hilton Head National is a wonderful course located just outside of Hilton Head Island in Bluffton. Originally 27 holes, 3 of the holes were lost due to eminent domain, the course today incorporates 9 holes of the Gary Player design and 9 holes of the Bobby Weed design. The Hilton Head National website summarizes theContinue reading “Hilton Head National”

Shipyard Golf Club

Shipyard Golf Club is made up of three nine hole courses, all unique in their own way. While Shipyard’s layout won’t blow you away like some of the other courses on the island, it serves its purpose as a fun track made for golfers of all skill levels. The Galleon and the Clipper courses areContinue reading “Shipyard Golf Club”

Harbour Town Golf Links

Harbour Town Golf Links, a spectacular Pete Dye design that is the annual home to the Heritage Classic. While the Heritage has undergone numerous sponsorship changes, one thing remains constant, Harbour Town is one of the favorite stops among tour pros. Ranked by Golf Digest #142 in America’s Greatest Courses, # 73 in Golf Mag’sContinue reading “Harbour Town Golf Links”

Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III

Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III is one of three Sea Pines Resort courses and the sister course of Heron Point located at the Plantation Club. Atlantic Dunes is the best public Hilton Head has to offer, combining pristine conditions, a difficult layout, and beautiful views. Atlantic Dunes is consistently ranked in the top 10Continue reading “Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III”

The Club at Savannah Harbor

The Club at Savannah Harbor is located just over the bridge in Savannah. Just shy of an hour outside of Hilton Head Island, Savannah Harbor is a course to check out if you want to get away from the island or are possibly taking a day trip to Savannah, which I highly recommend. This TroonContinue reading “The Club at Savannah Harbor”

Old South Golf Links

Old South Golf Links, this mainland Clyde Johnson design incorporates the beautiful Lowcountry landscape into a phenomenal golf track. Just minutes off the island in Bluffton, Old South offers a great golf escape for someone looking to step off the island for a few hours. Not too long of a course playing at 6,772 fromContinue reading “Old South Golf Links”

Heron Point by Pete Dye

Heron Point at Sea Pines Resort is one of three courses on the resort. It is the sister course of Atlantic Dunes at the Plantation Club. No other word can describe this Pete Dye design other than spectacular. Yet what is mind blowing is Heron Point is prob the worst of the three Sea PinesContinue reading “Heron Point by Pete Dye”

Bear Creek Golf Club

My economics teachers in college used to always tell me, “there is no such thing as free lunch. My teachers must have never played golf at Bear Creek Golf Club because there is such thing as a free lunch! Bear Creek distinguishes themselves from the competition on the island by offering complementary lunch and aContinue reading “Bear Creek Golf Club”

Golden Bear at Indigo Run

Golden Bear at Indigo Run, a Jack Nicklaus course on Hilton Head Island just before the Cross Island Parkway Bridge. Jack did a great job with this layout, a lot of over hanging trees that require precision off the tee, which offers a great but difficult test. Golden Bear offers some deceiving doglegs. Course isContinue reading “Golden Bear at Indigo Run”

Crescent Pointe Golf Club

Crescent Pointe Golf Club in Bluffton. Just a quick drive over the bridge from Hilton Head Island. The mainland boasts some great golf courses, I would not include this to the list. While the design of Crescent Pointe is awesome and has a lot of great traits of a Palmer course, it is in roughContinue reading “Crescent Pointe Golf Club”

Oyster Reef Golf Club

Oyster Reef is a spectacular Reese Jones design. Famous for the par 3 sixth hole with breath taking views of the Port Royal sound. The course plays tough with a lot of tight dog legs, requiring a lot of precision and smart decisions off the tee. Attack the dog legs at your own peril, cutContinue reading “Oyster Reef Golf Club”

Dolphin Head Golf Club

Dolphin Head Golf Club, Gary Player’s first design on Hilton Head Island. This is a fairly difficult course, not terribly long but penalizes wayward tee shots, so better bring your scramble game. Fun layout that can reward aggressive plays as easily as punish them. Lots of water waiting for a miss hit. Very tough finishingContinue reading “Dolphin Head Golf Club”
