Rating 73.5

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.

Old School Course

The course is well taken care of by the maintenance staff. The sand is good quality and consistent throughout the course. The greens held and rolled well. I was not a fan of the layout. The holes were short even from the back tees and there wasn’t much personality other than a couple holes like number 10. Many of the holes border the 6 lane road and we’re noisy, while the holes that were back on the property seem to all be similar as they run parallel to each other.

The inside staff were helpful and courteous, but there wasn’t anyone outside to direct us to the first tee. The round was just shy of 4 hours and 45 minutes, which I got the feeling isn’t unusual because the group behind us never waited or caught us the entire round. My family did enjoy the round, but we agree that there are better options in the area.

You get what you pay for

As one of the cheaper courses in the area, expect some rough conditions. Tee boxes completely brown, crab grass everywhere, and hard bunkers. Nice layout would be amazing if they’d put more care into the turf.

The staff and the clubhouse is very nice but I was surprised at the poor course conditions overall.

Not kept up. Lack of sand, needs mowing

Have been playing this course for over ten ears. The new clubhouse is beautiful but understaffed. Had to wait 10-15 on turn to get a iced tea. Sand traps are in awful shape. Need a lot of sand and grooming.

Playable

Nice , fairly playable course for average golfers. Today, the course was wet so it played “long”.
Bunkers could use some attention.
But, good greens and fairways.

Course to check off your list

First time playing this course. Staff in the pro shop was very friendly. Course was in pretty good shape. Greens on front nine rolled very true. Back nine had been aerated a couple weeks or so ago. They were a little bumpy.... On the course we made new friends that offered to help look for water balls. They gladly wanted their pic added to the review. I will be playing this course again. Pretty open but also has some challenges.
