The Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes is a Tom Fazio design that is challenging, but with five sets of tees it is versatile enough for players of all skill levels. Fazio deftly utilized the native wetlands and numerous lakes that are interspersed across the landscape, incorporating them along the expansive fairways and angled greens. The tricky greens have been carefully molded and contoured to offer a variety of pin placements. In addition to the water hazards, there are also numerous strategically placed bunkers lurking throughout. The golf course will test your shot-making skills as well as your creativity. To complement the golf course, Hilton Head Lakes offers an equally impressive 36-acre, double-ended practice facility with target greens, bunkers, multiple practice greens, and even a par-3 short course.

Course is deterioating with new owners

I have played this course for many years since the developer open with a trailer for a clubhouse, up to the first year the new clubhouse opened. I could not understand why the crab grass was taking over, the traps are terrible and the greens - rolling true - look dead to me. It has always been in great shape. Talking with the starter I found out the new investment group are the owers of Rose Hill, Crescent and Eagles Point. Now I understand. I would not play those courses either due to conditions. Pace of play was terrible - not spacing players and allowing 2 some on Sunday. I will not be back. Tee time was schedule under another Golf Now member as a party of 3. Facilies are new and great but course as gone down within since 2019.

Terrible shape. Greens were slow and lots of weeds. Extremely slow pace of play. Very frustrating. Not a fun day of golf. Played this course a few years ago and it was beautiful.

Nice course except for crowning of holes

Nice course with good layout and challenging holes. For some reason every green has crowned holes which makes holes more challenging than they.need to be. I find this adds 5 to 8 strokes to my score at this course compared to similar courses where the greens keeping staff knows how to finish off a hole properly.

Player Friendly Course

Course was in great condition and fun course to play. The fairways are player friendly extra wide. The course greatest defense are the sand traps. I would recommend the course for golfers of all abilities.

Enjoyed the experience

Terrific course with exceptional staff. Rangers were super friendly and enjoyed the bit of chit chat we had between a couple holes. Greens recently aerated but still played good. Great design with wide fairways but still require accuracy. Will definitely make a plan to come back and enjoyed my round thoroughly.

This course is the closest to Latitudes, I found the course conditions to be less than desireable compared to other courses in the area. Save your money & explore other options.

Fun course

A great layout and length for all handicap and skill levels. Very forgiving out of the tee boxes. With challenging shots to score. The greens are recovering from being aerated but in good shape. The fairways were a little damp from previous rain so the roll out on drives was not there. The sand is thin and compact like a beach course waste areas but very playable. I would highly recommend this course to play. Will definitely play it again when on town.

Quality Golf

My family of four which includes 20 year old and 15 year old sons had an extremely pleasant Golfing experience. Our original date was booked and paid in advance through GolfNow but the weather forecast was so bad that Ms. Dawn rescheduled a better day so that vacation plans were not ruined. After that we got the very best hospitality and customer service from Mike who happily answered all our questions. The course was in good shape all around. We got to see a couple alligators on the edge of the water brook before the first hole. We will definitely return with the family on our annual Hilton Head trip.

Hilton Head Lakes "Green- Scape"

The course is well maintained with pretty natural "green-scapes" ..lush & scenic as well as challenging on some holes. The Golf shop staff are very accommodating as well as professional and you will be completely satisfied with any lessons given by the professional golf staff.
How incredible to be playing golf amidst some truly beautiful wildlife.
