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.

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.

Have not played there in awhile. When I go back to Hilton Head; Shipyard would be high on my List. 

So many quality courses there now. EZ to play any. 

Fun time in Hilton Head are guaranteed!!

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.

Oyster Reef is the best of the courses in the group affiliated with Shipyard.  Hilton Head National and Old South are both interesting and can be very reasonable later in the day.

Finally got to visit Hilton Head and played the George Fazio course mentioned above. Was really fun, challenging yet not insane, and in great shape (and no crowd!!). Only knock was they had aerated the greens about 1.5 weeks before and the greens were pretty slow, but in good shape and rolled pretty true, you just had to whack it a little bit. Would definitely play again though and would love to play the other two as well. 
 

Hilton Head itself was really fun and nice, golf courses on every corner!

Going for a few weeks of R&R and astonished by the 25%+ increase in all the greens fees across the board. Yikes.

I am actually going back here for work later this week and if I can work all my duties in on Thursday, going to play Old South Golf Links Friday morning. Heard great things about it in this forum!
