Wouldn't Let Me Walk

I've played the 3 nines at Shipyard before. The 27 hole track is nice, the greens are fast and true with subtle and not arduous slopes. However, there were bare patches near and sometimes on the edge of some of the greens. Most annoying were 2 things: 1) It wasn't crowded and I was the first one off but I was not allowed to walk,as a single (!), even though I offered to pay the full price with card, and 2) When I got to my back nine, even though there are 27 holes, the starter had sent people off of MY 2nd nine. Poor coordination on the starter's part. My home course also has 27 holes and the pro shop sends people off the 3rd nine so that the 2nd nine is empty when the early groups finish their first nine.

A great course

Typical southern golf course winter conditions prevail; In all this a great course layout, great greens and very fun to play. Is challenging but fair. Depending on which tees you will change the level of difficulty. The conditions are pretty good based on the dormant winter conditions. The greens rolled pretty and true. The staff is excellent at Shipyard. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. I highly recommend Shipyard.

Good value

Shipyard is a scenic course with lovely natural beauty. As of a very cool day in early February conditions on the fairways are rough. The ground is very hard and there isn’t much grass cover. It will improve soon.

Greens in great shape for early February

Nice course, challenging but fair. Fairways were brown as expected for early February, but greens were perfect. Tee boxes green too. Played alone, took my time , and got -R- done in 3 hours.

Enjoyed Shipyard

Great weather, course was in good shape. Round came with range balls which was a nice surprise. Got paired with some great folks which made the round even more enjoyable. Overall great value for the costs. Look forward to our next round on one of the other Heritage courses.

Terrific greens

Played half a dozen courses in late January. Fairways are about the same in more expensive courses. The greens at shipyard are faster, true as and smooth. Medium long base on playing ability. Very enjoyable round.

Great place to play

There isn’t a golf course on the island where you will be treated better than Shipyard. The staff members are so friendly, accommodating, and professional. The course is in excellent shape. I purchased a 2 month winter special through Heritage Golf. I have the choice of 6 courses with this package. I expect to play shipyard the most. In my opinion, you will not be disappointed playing this course….
