Rating 72.8

Sprawling across 300 acres of lush, Carolina Lowcountry, Hilton Head National Golf Club has gained a reputation as being one of the area's best public courses. The course was a collaboration between Gary Player and Bobby Weed, who each designed a nine. Weed designed the front nine with the intention of creating a complement to the Player-designed back nine rather than making them too similar. He included larger greens with more dramatic undulations. The signature hole is the tricky sixth, which features the largest lake on the golf course bordering its entire right side and deep pot bunkers along the greensides. The back nine has many challenging holes as well, including the course's number one handicap hole, the par-5 seventh. It is the ninth that might be Hilton Head National's toughest though, with a deep marsh along the right side of a narrow fairway.

Great course for the money!

Hilton Head National was fantastic. The course is amazing shape and the layout was fantastic. It reminds me of TPC Tampa. It was definitley the best course i played while in Hilton Head and made the Shipyard and Rosehill look like goat ranches. i'll definitley be back when i'm in town!

Course needs work. Miserable staff

I have played here many times and was surprised and disappointed in the condition of the course. It badly needed watering. Tee boxes were horrible and fairways spotty. I usually love this course but not today.

As usual the pro shop staff showed its disdain for GOLF NOW patrons.

Best off Island Course

And compares favorably to most of the ones on the Island. Course was in the best condition of the 10 I have played in the past month, nice layout and fair. Great day - little over 2 1/2 Hours to play. Staff was friendly, range was in good shape and tee boxes, fairways and greens were very good. Will be back.

Well maintained Course

A warm and sunny day with a light breeze made for a good outing. Course condition excellent. Fairways and greens in very good shape. Carts in very good shape with GPS over heqd course map with distance to the green. Course layout was friendly to my average golf game with few water holes and long straight aways and a reasonable amount of traps. Very good value for the price. Would not hesitate to play it again.
