Sleeping Gem

Visiting family and was looking for a casual round. This course has great potential. Greens are excellent, fairways and tee boxes are being worked on. Give it a chance. A really great layout and a fair challenge. Bring your straight game, every hole is tree lined. Staff are friendly and helpful. Value for money in my book. Will definitely play here again. Keep your expectations realistic for a course that is trying to be renovated..

A Real Nice Track...but!

Olde Beaufort in its day must have been a great track to play. It was our first time and our initial impression was one of disappointment as the course has fallen on hard times and requires a lot work to get it back to days of old. However, after playing you can see that this course has the potential to be one of the best around Hilton Head but it will take some serious investment to get it there. The staff was very accommodating Would I play it again given its current condition ?, possibly, only because it is a good old fashioned layout.

Nice layout however tee boxes and fairways in very rough shape

Sad to see a potentially fine track in such a state of repair - tee boxes and fairways were poor. Greens ok. Course needs to do proper maintenance to survive

Unfortunately the course is In Such poor condition I can not recommend it.
Employees were very friendly. Bar & restaurant closed Mon & Tues.
Price was great but still not worth the hour ride from Hilton Head.

Would have liked to play in heyday...lots of potential

Needs a lot of TLC...
Back 9 in better shape than front
Greens generally good condition, fairways and tee boxes in need of water and grooming
Hard to attract people and higher rates given overall condition...hope it works out - nice vistas...

Needs work

This course is now called Olde Beaufort Golf Club. It is a little off the beaten path. It is about an hour away from Hilton Head Island. The course is surrounded by beautiful old trees. This is the kind of course that if the owners had an extra 100 or 200 thousand dollars they could do wonders. It is a vicious circle. They need $ to improve the course, but charging more for a course in this condition would be challenging for business. Greens are nice. Tee boxes are bare, fairways are really thin. Golf carts are in good shape. Cart paths are sand. The driving range has 3 stalls, with mats. The mats are so uneven, it is hard to get the ball to stand still. Even though it is not great, we had a good time, I look forward to seeing an improvement the next time.

Support and give the new owners a little time

Extremely friendly and accommodating owners and staff. Course has a wonderful layout. A good combination of easy holes and tough, long holes. Very picturesque scenery.

Enjoy a round of golf at an extremely reasonable rate and be a part of bringing this course back.

Potential -

Enjoyed playing the course despite recent aeration of the greens. Played from the white tees. Being a lowcountry course it is flat. Greens have received attention but fairways need some work. Still, all in all, a nice round for the price.

Awful

This course is an absolute joke. Most of the tee boxes are like sand traps along with many poorly manicured fairways. Stay away from this course.

Interesting Course

This was my first time on the course. As the other reviews explained - the course is under new ownership and it is evident that the old owner did not properly maintain the course. The new ownership is really improving the course as quickly and efficiently as possible. The greens were in very good shape and rolled true. The tee boxes are in need of some new grass and the fairways are thin - some seed and the growing season should help. For the cost - it's a fair price for the condition of the course. I would play the course again. I will definitely play the course again in the future after the new ownership has more time to continue to make improvements and properly maintain the course.
