The pro shop staff was friendly and provided a yardage book for first time visitors, which was a necessity. The first impression is very positive and the driving range and practice areas were very nice and more than adequate. What we were not told was that the greens had just been aerated and sanded. It would have been nice if someone had mentioned this in the pro shop before the round.

The course was in good shape, other than the greens, and it presents a challenge. The natural beauty of the marshland and the wildlife add to the experience. A yardage book is required, even with GPS, as several holes (7 and 16) are "target golf" holes which require playing a couple of times to know how to manage that part of the course.

This would be a course to put on your list to play but not at the top of that list.

This is perhaps the most enjoyable course in the Hilton Head area. The six holes that border the marshes and river are stunningly beautiful, with plenty of wildlife about. The food in the clubhouse is the best I've ever had at a public course. We had a full breakfast before our round one day. By far, the best in the area. More like a mini-resort than a public course

Absolutely love this course and cannot say enough about it. Very well maintained and each hole is different. I wish I had another day down there to play it again.

Really nice course.

Great twilight rate.
mounds and hills everywhere.
Lots of water.
Really fun to play.
Try to play it at high tide if you're there for the scenery.
Tons of huge birds nesting in the woods along several holes.
