Rose Hill Golf Club in Bluffton is situated amongst plentiful live oaks draped with Spanish moss. There are also sparkling, crystal-clear lakes that come into play on several holes. The golf course is a part of Rose Hill Plantation, giving it a truly Southern look and feel. Most of the holes are flat and straightforward but there are a few tricky doglegs to keep the course interesting. The layout features formidable par 3s that will test even the best players and a notably difficult par 5 that measures just over 600 yards. The challenging holes are balanced with player-friendly features that make it versatile enough for a wide range of skill levels. Four sets of tees, the longest coming to just over 6,900 yards, make Rose Hill Golf Club even more accessible.

NOT AGAIN

I HAVE PLAYED A NUMBER OF OTHER COURSES IN HILTON HEAD OVER THE LAST TWO MONTHS AND THIS WAS BY FAR IN THE WORST SHAPE OF THEM ALL. I UNDERSTAND THE BERMUDA HAS NOT REALLY TAKEN HOLD YET BUT THE COURSE HAD WATER IN EVERY BUNKER, NEEDED THE BLOWERS OUT, AND THE PRICE IS NOT CLOSE TO BEING RIGHT. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PLAYING TO ANYONE. NOT AGAIN FOR ME EITHER.

Rose Hill

Over all the course was in good shape for the time of the year. The tee boxes were a little bare as there was some water in the traps, but considering we had tornadoes watch and heavy rains the night before It didn’t bother me.
The pace was fine we didn’t have anyone breathing down our necks and we weren’t waiting on anyone in front of us.

Disappointing

I was really excited about playing Rose Hill this year. Had heard new ownership/Mgmt had taken over. The greens were in decent shape. The starter told us on the first tee that the course was in really good shape. He should probably play it. The fairways and tee boxes had more dirt than grass to hit from. There was zero sand in the bunkers, nor was there a rake with any trap. It was a really good value when it was $28-35 a round not that many years ago. Not so much this time around. I was told they gave a great 3 month deal to walkers. That's probably why the course was playing slower than I remember since playing first playing here in the early 80's. Overall, it was a real disappointment.

Work in Progress

They are clearly investing the money necessary to upgrade this course -Kudos! However in the meantime the fees charged seem out of line with current course conditions. Tee boxes are in very poor shape-and most of the fairway “turf” is extremely thin. Traps are horrible! Greens were actually the best part of playing surface. They were in good shape.

I'd play again but would bring my own beer

Played back 9 first. Cart path only on only 3 holes. Front 9 cart path only due to so much rain, thus fairways showed it. That part of course will improve. No beverage cart at all. Too bad; they're missing out on revenue. I would definitely have purchased at least 1 beer per 9, if not more as it was a nice warm day. For the first time in my golfing experience, I lost a ball to the "wildlife." I was not going near it! Photo attached.

Just okay course right now

With the amount of water they have had here the course is very muddying and not a lot of grass. The course would be very nice if it was dryer and the grass starts growing.

Front nine was in poor condition...tee boxes and fairways. Back was much better. Greens were acceptable. Pace of play always seems to be a problem. But the layout is interesting, challenging but fair. It’s a good value and not inconvenient from the Island.

Waste of time and money

I came to try Rose Hill after someone made a comment that the greens were in good shape. Greens were actually in reasonably good shape but the rest of the course was a disaster.
Driving Range - No grass to hit from
Tee Boxes - No grass to hit from on 80% of the holes.
Fairways - you expect them to be brown this time of year but in multiple places there was no grass. On most courses you have some ground under repair. A majority of this course would be deemed to be ground under repair by reputable groundskeepers.
I should have expected it to go down hill from the moment of check in. I had prepaid via the app for my round. When I checked in I wanted to purchase some range balls. Rudely I was told they weren’t free. I didn’t expect them to get them for free.
After plunking down $7 for the balls I went to the staff and asked for rangeballs and was rudely told the range was closed. When I stated that I just purchased them he basically said that wasn’t his problem as he pulled out his cigarettes and lit up.
Btw no masks no social distancing.

It reminded me of a low end municipal course.

We are very disappointed in your recent experience at Rose Hill. While winter dormancy in the South can be a tricky time in terms of shape for Golf Courses that don’t over-seed, the service issues you experienced are inexcusable. The staff would enjoy the opportunity to make this right with you and guard against any experience like this from happing going forward. I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you, Tony Stephens – Rose Hill GC

Trouble with “map it” link in receipt

First problem : the map link in the receipt was completely wrong. I was lead to middle of nowhere near a water way. NOT very helpful “GOLFNOW”!!! It wasted hour and half of my time.
The course was busy. Pace was slow. Some tee box areas are grass-less. Much of the fairway edges are bare and rough. Greens are fair overall and some of them are slow. The course had seen better days.

Great Value

Rose Hill has become one of the GoTo places to play in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton area. The crew working the clubhouse and the course work in many ways to make the golfing experience enjoyable for all. I can't believe how much improvement this course has gone through in the last three yeas. Love it, love it.

Back 9 a mess

They should not have had the back 9 open for play. It’s a mess. Front 9 ok, but I’d say it’s overpriced for the condition the course is in right now.
