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 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...

Not worth getting off Hilton Head Island for

The greens were in bad shape with weeds. The layout was nothing special- especially the front nine where everything was just wide open. Picked the course of the name Fazio. Turns out it’s Tommy Fazio (guessing they’re related somehow).

Fun layout poor staff helpfulness

Great sunny day course is a good layout and conditions were good for this time of year. Golf was fun. The poor part is had 5 staff members in the pro shop not one greeted or interacted with me. The person that waited on me actually had ear buds in and I thought he was on the phone when he was actually talking to me. He never looked up to make eye contact to acknowledge me. When I went out to go play my clubs were still in the bag drop so I had to load my own bag. No guidance on where to go to the first hole so I asked and got a generic go this way and it’s right there. Well I played the tenth hole before I realized it was not one. Once I got to the correct hole I found a group ahead of me that was never mentioned. So I played the front nine In close to 2:45. Once on the back side nobody out there after the shotgun had finished. When I finished my round I came back to the bag drop and unloaded my own clubs while the cart guy watched me and continued to wash carts. I didn’t really feel very important as a golfer playing there course. I am an avid golfer from the Atlanta area and am a member of a country club and routinely tip the help but I do expect to be treated like your happy I’m there.

This course really needs better drainage. It did rain a couple of days ago, but I played another course the day after and it was in better shape than this was. Which is a shame because this is a great course under normal circumstances, but today, it was a mess.

Very wet but very nice!

Rain ended in the early morning and every step on the course was like walking on a sponge. Solid shots were rewarded with a spray of mud all over you and almost every shot had absolute zero roll. The layout is very nice with an interesting blend of holes, lots of water, good bunkering and exceptional greens. Wide open driving opportunities make this a fair test for all handicap levels. Play forward as the course plays longer than you might think. I’ll have to come back on a hot, dry summer day and play this one again.
