Going to Hilton Head Labor Day, Get One Round, Where Should I Play??


Recommended Posts

I am going to Hilton Head with my family and another family Labor Day Weekend.  Staying in an Airbnb right near the beach on the island. I have 2 kids he has 3, so needless to say we said we needed a half day of golf at some point. I am a 10.7 handicap currently and he doesn't play much golf, so we won't be taking it too seriously, but want to have a good golf experience too. 

 

I want some advice on where to play. Of course Harbour Town is an option but I am not really sure I want to fork up $350 plus for a round (maybe one day in the future), and the guy I am playing with definitely does not. My Airbnb is right next to the Palmetto Dunes courses (Fazio, Hills, and RTJ) so I thought about playing one of those. Have also seen Shipyard, Port Royal, and Oyster Reef. Also heard about May River and Old South that are right near Hilton Head. 

 

Just looking for a great golf experience for the best bang for the buck. Thanks!

Personally, I would play one of the 3 courses at Palmetto Dunes.

Thanks. Have you played any of the courses? 

Yes, it's been a couple of years. I played two of them and they were very nice. I prefer Palmetto Dunes over the Shipyard, etc.

Thank you for the information. I have researched Palmetto Dunes the most but looks like there are a lot of Shipyard supporters out there too.

I go to HHI every year in September.

Last year I played Palmetto Hall Plantation(2 courses), Rose sHill GC & Old South.

 

Tge Psljetto Hall courses were immaculate and fun to play. Rise Hill was a complete surprise and best value. Hiwever, if I could only play one round, I would choose Old South.  It is the most unique course as it is in the swamps…

We are in HHI every year.  If I had one round to play I'd play HH National. It's the best on the Island for the money.  CC of Hilton Head and Dolphin Head are very good options as well. Both semi private. Palmetto has 3 good courses.

I was just in Hilton Head a few weeks ago and one course we played I would highly recommend for the value and experience.

The Old South Golf Links. You can often find GolfNow deals at $60 to $70 range and it has a GolfNow rating of 4.4 which is actually pretty good rating. Best bang for the buck near Hilton Head.

Enjoy!

Like to play RTG at Palmetto Dunes. If you want the most challenging course at Palmetto Dunes play the Arthur Hills course. The Arthur Hills course at Palmetto Hall Plantation is also very good. I also like Oyster Reef & Old South. 

Enjoy your trip at HH!

I've been to HHI a few years now.  Have played a couple courses, but nothing crazy.  I played Atlantic Dunes last year and had a great time.  Played Palmetto Dunes - RTJ this year and didn't like it as much.  Crescent Pointe was inexpensive and ok value comparatively.  I played Palmetto Hall - Hills course and thought value for money was quite good and some nice holes.  Playing Oyster Reef today so I will try and update after.

If you can’t play HarborTown which is extremely nice and not as difficult as one might think Shipyard is a good choice. One of my favorites is Old South which is across the bridge. We always try to play that at least once a trip.

Thank you! I live in Alabama so we are used to the gulf, so the Atlantic beach will be a fun change of scenery.
