About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 7018 yards
Slope 137
Rating 74.7

Oyster Reef features elevated tees and lush fairways lined by thick stands of live oak and pine. Numerous doglegs accented by strategically located mounds and fairway bunkers, call for well-planned tee shots. Varying sizes of greens with well-defined tiers place a premium on precise approach shots.

The par-3 sixth hole, which plays 192 yards from the back tees to a green set against a backdrop of Port Royal Sound, is one of the most visually spectacular holes on Hilton Head. Oyster Reef is now a semi-private member-owned club with a limited number of tee times for guest play,

The carefully-maintained facility, designed by noted course architect Rees Jones, continues to be a favorite destination for serious golfers as well as a favorite with locals.

Friendly Staff

The staff were very friendly and helpful getting us started and at the end of our round. Willing to chat and share tips on playing the course.
We all agreed the course was in very good condition and fun to play (even at our skill levels). Would definitely recommend to others.

Great course and value

Only second round of season so not a great start but came around for second nine. Course was in good condition. Greens a touch slower but mostly in good shape. Some bunkers a little tough to get out of (no fault of their own….). Definitely a return visit in the future.

Love the course

Good layout and very good condition. Very slow play by a group in front lead to backup on back nine.

Never been disappointed by Oyster Reef GC!

I've been going down to HHI for a Spring vacation for over 15 years and Oyster Reef is a golf course that has never disappointed me. The course is always in great shape and the staff is always friendly and helpful. And...(unlike a few other unnamed GC's)...I feel it's a good value for my golfing dollars!

Not well maintained

I couldn’t wait to come back this year to play this course. I played it a year ago, almost to the day. This year however it wasn’t well maintained. I think it either gets a lot of play or there were several outings in the days ahead of our time. It is an expensive course and I just wanted to get the course and service that I paid for.
