I play here whenever I vacation at Hilton head⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love the layout. Fun beach golf with country club feel (for a vacation course). Been enjoying this course since 1993 when in high school.

Brig-Galleon

Enjoyable day, friendly staff and pro shop was better stocked than some other courses on the island. Gps a must- you cannot see all the water hazards until you are right up on them. Difficult to see the front edge of some water to shoot with laser, ergo use a gps based app. The carts do not have video screens (as of July 2022). Nice tracks, saw some wildlife but did not see a single gator.

Years since last round

It was great! I was a single, returning to the game after 15 years or more. I was paired by the starter with a gentleman that was familiar with the course. Being the slow season worked to my advantage, as pace was to my liking as the rust was difficult to break through at times. Overall, an excellent experience and enough good shots to keep me coming back.

Exceeded My Expectations!

I hadn’t played the course since the early eighties and it wasn’t in the best of condition when we played it. The greens were smooth and receptive and the fairways fairly firm and manicured when we played it Wednesday.. pace of play was a problem on the first nine with 4 groups on a par 5 hole. The second nine opened up and we played it in 2 hours. Overall, a good experience and will play it again before another 40 years go by!

Great time on a great course.

My son (15) and I had a great time on the course. I seen the in the fine print, that the golf now app provides you with a small bucket of range balls. So, I called and spoke with Sam (she's great), she recommended we show up 45 minutes early. So, we did, started of with a small bucket of range balls, then about 10 minutes on the chipping green, and about 5 on the putting green. All 3 are right next to each other. So, you don't need to drive your cart anywhere. My son and I thought the course was in great shape. My son is on his HS golf team, his review was the course was a touch more difficult than his home course. His score reflected the same. He only lost 3 balls. I have only been golfing for 3 years. Now, I was a little nervous in booking this course, as it looks difficult to me in the pics. I lost 11 balls, lol. Overall I am so glad I booked this course. We come to the HH from Ohio once a year, I will book this course again, no doubt about it.
