Shipyard or graveyard?

The tee boxes need work! Most had little grass. Fairways were okay but the bunkers needed to be fluffed. Greens were good and had recovered from aeration and dressing.

Friendly staff and great course layout.

Checking in was extremely smooth and straight forward. Staff was there to greet us and direct us accordingly. The pro shop was very clean and organized. The course was very nice and put together, other than the understandable greens that were punched, but still in playing condition.

Elite Hacker

I love this golf course, and the staff was friendly. They gave me a little grief for paying for my son to ride along, which is unnecessary. Other than that, it was a great experience! You should play here if you are on vacation!

Friendly staff

Booked through golf now before traveling to Hilton Head. Called them for aeration dates and found out it would be aerated just prior to our arrival. We decided to play as all area courses around Hilton Head are aerated around the first week of June. Reduced rate was offered due to aeration. Shipyard golf course called us to make sure we knew about aeration.
Great layout. Extra friendly staff. I’ll play again!!

Need to keep pace up!

I teed off about 8 am and it took more than 30 minutes to play the first two holes. It was a 5+ hour round of golf. The rangers need to be out on the course full time. The greens fees are some of the most affordable on the island, so you get golfers of all levels. I believe that it is incumbent on the staff to keep the players moving. We had a group that had two holes open in front of them. Never should have happened.

Enjoyable courses

Played Clipper then Galleon and enjoyed them both. Water on nearly every hole and not overly bunkered like other courses. Greens were aerated and top dresses a week earlier and the pro shop called us and provided the heads up. Thanks! Unfortunately, we followed dad and his two preteens that didn’t understand juniors should play the most forward teens or that carts were allowed on the fairways or that picking up after whiffing and then maybe bumping the ball was allowed. It’s a resort and anyone may play at any time. Annoying but we enjoyed the course.

Aeration greens

This course is in much better shape than the last time I played it. Fairways green and nice. Greens were heavy sand due to aeration. However we were warned of this when we signed up. Staff was very good. Very hot day but water and ice was provided around the course…there was no beer girl however!

Another Heritsge Group Gem

Shipyard was in great shape for both fairways, greens, and sand traps. Well manicured course. Scenic views and lots of wildlife. A fun course for all levels of player.
