No water

I'm of buying $3.00 drinks at $80 golf courses. All courses should have water coolers available. It really is a safety problem.

Short on value

For the price range Cupp is a disappointment. The course is short on amenities. Holes are not clearly mark for distance. Gas powered carts though will make you feel like you hitting in the 80’s again. Given the many great tracks on Hilton Head I would skip spending any money here.

Always like this coujrse

I’ve played both off the Palmetto Hall courses many times and they’re always among my favorites on the Island. With the Hills course shut down for a rebuild Cupp was the only choice. Both are tough with lots of places to get in trouble. Fairways and greens were in good shape although the greens are slow in the summer. I’ll definitely go back.

Needs investment

Cart paths are very uneven. You can bounce yourself from the cart. Sand traps need sand!

Not the same as it was a few years back

Played this course a few years ago and the conditions were great. Played last week and the fairways and rough have a lot of weeds growing. They just aerated the fairways and ruff so maybe that will help. I have yo say, the greens were fantastic, rolled true and fast.

Not what it was

Played this course a few years ago and it was fantastic. They recently aerated the fairways which is fine but you can tell by the amount of weeds in the fairways they have a problem. The greens are great but the rest of the course is rough. I love the layout and hope they get the fairways and bunkers fixed. When we were teeing off the staff was talking about all the bathrooms being locked and they were heading out to unlock them, we go to 15 and they were still locked. Hope they can’t fix this so it can be the great course it was a few years ago.

bad greens

It started with extremely unfriendly staff in the Pro shop. When we got to the back nine the greens were unplayable. It was basically sand on top of dirt. The course should be shut down but they will not do that. I would not play again even if they paid me to play.

Favorite Course on the Island

The Robert Cupp course is my favorite course on the island by far. The opening three holes are awesome and leads into what is a testing rest of the course. Definitely my favorite opening holes I’ve ever played. The layout is unique and challenging which calls for excellent shot making tee to green, especially from the back tees which I played. Conditions were also phenomenal. I am from up north and think Bermuda grass runs slow but the Cupp course runs on the faster side for Bermuda, especially the steep downhill putts. Best value golf course I’ve ever played at $65 on a weekday morning. I played Harbour Town two days later and I enjoyed the Cupp course more and thought it was more difficult at a 4th of the cost. As difficult and as awesome of a layout as some other PGA courses I’ve played. Hole 7 is the most difficult fairway to hit that I have ever seen. Flew through my round in 3 hours playing by myself first tee time out. Staff was very friendly and excellent. Stock up on water and snacks as the club house is not near the turn. Overall excellent experience I can’t wait to play this track again.
