Casual course for casual golfers.

Not the best golf experience but good layout, good customer service, and not crowded.

Great Course and Staff, will play again

I was skeptical of playing this course based off of some of the reviews I read the day before. Most of the reviews I read were negative towards the staff, course conditions, and the pace of play.

As far as the staff is concerned, I was very pleased with their professionalism and courtesy. The course was in very good shape for the time I was there, which was May of 2022. The pace of play started off very slow but as the ranger explained while on the 4th hole, there was a slow group a few holes ahead of us that had the front nine backed up. Which can happen anywhere any time of year.

After that, the rest of the round had a good pace and I really enjoyed my round. This is the first review I have ever written, but I felt like I needed to do so given the experience I had. Really enjoyed this place and I will definitely play here next year.

Shipyard Hot Deal

Enjoyed playing here as Saturday noon time the course was pretty empty. Greens were a little faster than other courses we played but punished you if you weren't firm to the hole

Consistent and great staff

Nicest staff around...as good as any on the island. Course conditions were still growing in somewhat so a little thin here and there. Greens excellent. Overall a very good time as usual

Very scenic, lots of wildlife

Had a great time with both of my son's and they added a fourth player to our group (Chance) and that was great as he was about the same level golfer as us.

Enjoyable CourseWill come back & play again.

I was reluctant at first because of negative reviews on Golf Now, but glad we played. Had a great time. Tee boxes & greens were in good shape. Greens had good speed. Bunkers were mostly in good shape but I did come across one that needed sand in the center, pretty much hard pack.

Never a bad time

I visit HHI a few times a year with the family and have played several courses. Since playing shipyard, I pretty much only play this course when on the island. The staff is friendly, the course layout is challenging but very playable for a hack like myself and the conditions of the course are good all year round.

Slow day on the links

Pace of play was extremely slow and poor management of pairings. Outside staff did not indicate which of 3 9 hole courses we should play. No direction at all.
Course conditions in poor shape.
Would not recommend this course and will not play this course again.

We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a comment. The paint on the greens is used to denote where spraying has occurred with each fertilizer application.

This course is showing its age

I have played this course many times over the last ten years. While maintenance is obviously being done there is still much room for improvement, Extensive sodding is being done. Some of the tees are very worn out and need to be resodded.

The battery in my range finder went out. The clubhouse didn't have batteries for sale. The sprinkler heads are not marked with yardage.
