Overpriced

My first time playing in Hilton Head, but I’d stack up a number of courses in my region (upstate NY) against this one, at one-third the price. Lots of fairway areas with little/no grass, greens with bumpy sections, barebones carts (electric but no GPS), so-so rental clubs (no sand wedge!); had to ask for a towel to wipe to wipe them.

Clipper/Brigatine

Clipper was very good shape, but Brigatine was under a lot of repair. Staff was about as unfriendly group of people you could meet. It was a very busy day also.

Staffing

Without a doubt the outside staff at Shipyard are the worst of any course we play. Unfriendly and rude. It’s not as hard as these guys try to make it been this way for a long time. Inside staff aren’t much better and aren’t as good as any other Heritage course.
Once on the course forget any staff member and when there might be one they aren’t about to address pace of play. We.ALL pay the same rate.
We play because of location convenience and the course layout is good. Would play more often if staff were more customer friendly

I couldn't agree more. We thought the guy who took our money inside was rude until we met "Don" the starter. What a piece of work. Give a man a clip board and all of a sudden he thinks he's king of the world. It got worse from there. Extremely slow play and no ranger. Will NEVER go back.

As expected

I had never played Shipyard even though I’ve played at HHI many times. I played all 27 and was not disappointed on any of the 9s I think Brigatine was the best of the 3 but only by a little bit. Very good course that is keeping it up. (New sod in areas that were thin and clean bunkers). The staff was very friendly and helpful and not pushy or aloof. Go play Shipyard you’ll have a great time.

Shipyard - 10/7/21

Pace of play was horrible. Course has hardly any visible yardage marker s from tee, so you are always guessing what you need to do. Course was in decent shape. Had Cart path only today but was not needed on over 50% of the holes we played., Would not play course again for this much money.
