Great Experience

Absolutely one of my best golf experiences. Staff was extremely friendly and professional.. course was ingreat shape. Only thing I would change is we were cart path only. It would help if 200, 150, and 100 yd markers would be indicated on cart paths. Sprinler head which typically have yardage on them were not there. Would recommend this to anyone who plays regardless of ability.

Play somewhere else

The course conditions were horrible and the greens were the worst I have ever played. There was no discount for aeration and the sand on the greens for the aeration were like bunkers on the green. I have not played a worse course since ball washers were common and persimmon was still the component of the best drivers. Range was also supposed to be included and was closed….no discount for that either.

Shipyard Golf

Played the Clipper and Brigantine nines. The course is challenging yet open enough for high handicapper-beginners in Hilton Head. I had a rangefinder, but the carts don’t have a GPS which would be nice. Overall a nice course, and they have a driving range with free warm-up bucket. The three nines allow you to play a different layout, which is nice if you’re playing multiple rounds in a week.

Nice course overpriced

While I liked the course the charge of $40 PER PERSON for one cart two riders seems a bit expensive it was in no way a high tech cart. No gps at all.
The putting greens were very “spongy” and the cups had a raised edge around them.

Staff was friendly and food and bev were good.

Hilton Head Outing

Course was good, staff very friendly.

After reading the rules about no outside food or drink, and complying, I could not obtain a Diet Coke to save my life. Clubhouse didn't have any, with a 7:20am tee time, at the turn, the snack restaurant was not open yet (11am), and all the venting machines on the course were out! (The machine only tells me it's out AFTER I put $3.00 in it (in cash), then it wouldn't give it back.

Course was in great condition

The only issue that I would comment on would be the speed of the greens. The greens were in super condition. They rolled so smooth, but they were horribly slow. It was necessary to slam the ball every time in order to reach the cup. It was almost like putting on artificial turf.
