Country Club of Hilton Head
The Country Club of Hilton Head rambles over a variety of terrain, including rolling, open expanses, pine and oak woodlands and freshwater ponds and marshlands. Each hole is distinctive, as a golfer must negotiate water hazards, contoured fairways, pot bunkers and sculpted bunkers, and grass hollows.This facility features constant elevation tees, landing areas and greens, as well as the only punch bowl-shaped green in the area. The Country Club of Hilton Head layout also features 3 doglegs, undulating and tiered greens and two par-5's that stretch more than 575 yards in length. An excellent, fair test of golf for all skill levels.

Challenging Green Complexes and Difficult Par 3s
My experience at the Country Club of Hilton Head was nothing short of top notch. The club personnel at the bag drop, pro shop and first tee were exceptionally friendly and informative. The practice facility is awesome and included complimentary balls. I had conversations with a few members prior to my round and found them to be engaging and enthusiastic about their club. I was paired with a member and a guest who were familiar with the course and were helpful in providing assistance on the strategies for playing each of the holes. The main advice provided (and needed to be followed) was to always take an extra club on approach shots as every green is elevated requiring a few extra yards more than what your GPS or Rangefinder was providing. Course conditions are very good. The rough and fairways are dormant, but the fairways have been sprayed with green fertilizer so it was very easy to see where to go on each hole. The greens are FAST and smooth and although they have some pitch marks, most had been repaired correctly and did not impact the roll of your putts. All of the par 3 holes are forced carries over water or marsh with bunkers or runoff collection areas on all other sides. The rest of the holes are a good mix of straight and doglegs left and right. None of the holes appeared to be a repeat of another - so each is memorable in their own way. GPS on the cart would be helpful to know distances to carry bunkers and especially on holes where it is cart path only as my ball always seemed to be on the side of the hole opposite the cart path! On all of the holes, the greens appeared to be appropriately sized and shaped to accept properly struck approach shots. I rate this course a 4.7 out of 5 and hope to find the time to play the Country Club of Hilton Head again!
Very impressed, wonderful layout greens were fast and true. It’s tough but fare so far #1 on my HH list . Staff was friendly and helpful.
Enjoyable Round at Bear Creek
Workers at the Bag Drop and Pro Shop were very nice and accommodating to me and my son. We were provided with ample balls to warm up at the range and given the freedom to tee off whenever we wanted as we had arrived almost an hour ahead of our tee time reservation. We hit a few at the range and rolled a few at the practice putting green before teeing off a half hour early. We felt like we had the course to ourselves as we played the round in about 3:15 and finally caught up with the lone group in front of us on the 17th hole.
The course layout has many doglegs in both directions with only a few straight holes and of course, the par 3s sprinkled in between. Course conditions were fairly good - especially on the tees and greens. Fairways and rough are dormant so it was hard to differentiate the difference between the two from the tee box. Bunkers on the dogleg holes were all very similar with a shorter bunker on the inside corner and further bunkers on the outside corner - making it appear as if a complete line of bunkers was awaiting your tee shot on nearly every dogleg hole. Green complexes were all unique with different challenges from angle of approach and bunkers or water/marsh/waste areas surrounding the greens. Although previous reviewers had noted how tight it was off of the tee, we found the tee shots to be playable on all holes with trees lining both sides of the fairways, but yet ample room to miss hit some drives off of the fairway and have a playable second shot. Will return to Bear Creek should I find another great tee time deal. 4.5 stars out of 5.
Really enjoyed this course. Good condition for winter, greens were really good, very fast. Staff was very nice. .look forward playing again.
Fairways and greens great condition
Very friendly staff. Great weather and course is in excellent condition
A must play when vacationing at Hilton Head
Quite enjoyable and challenging. Beautiful visuals. Pace was wonderful. Staff super friendly and helpful. Great rate via golf now.
Great Course but Pace of Play is an Issue
I've played this course multiple times, and it's a great layout in beautiful condition. The only downside was that they had a course ranger driving around who told us we needed to keep pace of play to finish in 4:15. There was no pressure behind us, and one hole open in front of us, yet he cautioned us 3x that he was going to make us skip a hole if we didn't pick it up. It was not relaxing to say the least. Our foursome finished our round in just over 4 hours. There was no need for the harrassment.
Must play to improve your game or get most out of it
Dogleg rights, dogleg lefts, properly placed bunkers, and plenty of water (saw 3 4-8 ft gators by hole 8).
This course has it all, risk/reward parts, an amazing layout, and an awesome and friendly staff.
Not worth anywhere near $124
After playing Atlantic Dunes and Heron Point this course was a big disappointment. The fairways were poor, greens ok, but not great.
Fun Round of Golf
My wife and I were paired with two gentlemen and that can be intimidating for my wife, but they immediately put her at ease and all of us an an enjoyable afternoon. The course was in very good shape but greens seem to be somewhat inconsistent as to speed. Traps were well maintained, staff was very friendly.
This was a nice course to end our golf trip. Greens was rolling nice. Fairways was great. If you ever in Hilton Head I suggest to put this course on the list to play.
