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.

Very Dry Right Now

We have had unusually little rain here and the course conditions reflect that. Fairways are dry and hard. Lots of run out. Greens had been punched and sanded recently and were dry. So not much hold or bite to them. I expect this will all get better after some rain. Good layout. Flat but not a walking course due to the distance between holes.

Over-priced & Under-conditioned

The only reason I played was based on the reviews on Golfnow….which are inaccurate to say the least. The course is a pretty good track, but nowhere near one of Fazio’s best routings. The fairways are reasonably smooth but very thin, greens were sanded and only about 50% grass…although they did roll fairly fast. Overall impression was just “meh”….I get the distinct impression that spring and summer are not really the best time to play anywhere on HHI, fall & winter may be the preferred time.

Good course mostly wide open from the tee. Tees are a bit beat up but the fairways are in decent shape for this time of the year. Greens have poa on them which should disappear as the heat builds. Greens are a bit sparse but should fill in as the poa disappears.

Two Thumbs Up

The course was in great shape except for a weed infestation in the greens which I'm sure they'll clear up soon. The staff was great. The only thing I would suggest is that they extend the hours to their 19th hole. several golfers still out on the course and the club house locked up.

Course judgement

Wide open...not many tree lined fairways. Water can be easily avoided...greens however provide the protection for the course. Short game requires much thought. Overall this course needs more time to mature. Price is a good value. People who work here were just nice folks. Enjoyed not dealing with pompous staff!

Good Ol’ Course

This course has a nice layout and you will use every club in the bag. We have played a number of times and it offers up a challenge especially when the wind is blowing. The only downside to this round was that a number of greens have picked up some type weed grass that definitely effects your putts. The effected greens definitely need attention.

Greens are fair, at best

Funny that my GPS would not take me to the course...luckily the signage on the road was excellent. For the area this is a reasonable priced course, and being cheap I chose it, now that my wife has quit playing golf I hate to spend too much money. A small clubhouse, but I go to play golf, not shop and dine. They have a nice practice area, but being so sandy it would have been nice to have club cleaning out there on the range at least...small item, but I they did not even have club stands on the range so I brought my bag...everything was damp from the weather and, as I mentioned, very sandy. The course is nice and open...I didn't miss one fairway truth be told. very forgiving course. The fairways were in good condition, but the greens pretty much impossible to enjoy. There were little tuffs of grass everywhere and your ball bounced and hoped the entire way to the hole.

But another cool feature, they had ice and water machines...the ball washers were working, complete with towels...and flush toilets on both nines. If it wasn't for the greens, it would have been a very good experience. They are so close to good...oh, I ran out of sand to fill divots...the little things that are annoying, not club stands, no club washers, running out of sand...
