First time playing the course and it was very nice. Just enough water to make it interesting but not frustrating for my high handicap. Had a 9 AM tee time and went off as a twosome.
Probably could have done just as well getting a tee time directly but I went through Gold Now which added a service fee.
Staff was friendly and drink cart made regular rounds!
Wow. Great course, beautiful and well maintained. Great price and a great value. We will come back again
This is by far one of the most beautiful courses in the spectrum of public golf courses in the HH area. It's got challenging fairways, and incorporates the marsh and "low country" into the landscape architecture of the course.
I cant say enough about this course, I feel it is one of the best tracks in the Hilton Head area, not only for the price, which I do include in my reviews (value).
The fairways that are designed to run through the beautiful but dangerous forests are spectacular to view, as are the and beautiful greens, some of which are surrounded by marshland, a real eye catcher to say the least!
The course architect was Clyde Johnston, 6722 from the tips Old South is a true championship course. The back 9 is where the course gets tougher, 16 specifically. The last 3 holes on each 9 are awesome!
Spectacular views across the marshes lining the Intracoastal Waterway grace six holes, giving golfers one of the most thrilling rounds in the area. I recall 4 island greens" (sort of) , and views over the Calibogie Sound to Hilton Head.
I played it 5 times and it is usually in good very condition and makes the best of working with the natural land. To top it off, the price is most often quite reasonable. And stay for lunch.
