One of the youngest golf courses to be featured on Golf Digest's list of America's 100 Best, the par-70 layout continues to offer stimulating challenges.

The Barony Course was designed by George W. Cobb in the early 1960s and was one of the first courses on Hilton Head Island. From the tee box, many of the holes appear to be relatively open, but as you approach the newly resurfaced Bermuda greens, the real challenge becomes clear. The greens are generous and protected by thick, rough and unforgiving bunkers, entitling the golfer to have good touch with mid- to short-range iron shots. This is a course where accuracy, not length, is paramount.

Robber's Row Course at Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club

Hilton Head Island, SC 29928

This course sets atop former Civil War grounds and features historical markers throughout the course, describing events which took place on the Island. Although tee-shots have generous fairways to land in, approach shots require accuracy to the well-protected greens. Robber's Row is a course rich in history and challenge to any golfer.

Heron Point by Pete Dye

100 N Sea Pines Dr
Hilton Head Island, SC 29928
843.363.4475

Book Your Tee Time Now »

esigned by legendary course architect Pete Dye, Heron Point is the centerpiece of any Hilton Head Island golf vacation. Dye himself supervised Heron Point's recent modifications with the objective of making the course more player-friendly, and the result is an award-winning stroke of genius.

At 7,035 yards from the back tees, Heron Point can play considerably shorter if needed, with seven sets of tees on each hole (including tees for juniors). Golfers are challenged by risk-reward long and short holes, fairways that move toward and away from hazards and Dye's ubiquitous mounding and swales framing target areas.

On four holes with water guarding the greens, alternating wood and grass walls create conspicuous bulkheads, visually dramatizing the peril. Even more striking, a mixture of grasses, sand, mulch and limestone surfaces provides a vivid tapestry of color for this Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

One of Golf Digest's "Best Places to Play" and South Carolina's 2015 Golf Course of the Year, this cohabitation of beauty and beast (at times) is poised for even more acclaim.

With stunning views at every turn, it's no question why Dolphin Head has become Hilton Head's premier golf destination.

It's Arnie's only public-access course in the Hilton Head area, and it's pure Palmer with generous fairways but challenging approaches to its many elevated, undulating greens. Four unique par 3s await and the three par 5s are all birdie holes, but all feature over-the-water carries to do it. Magnificent, century-old oaks, manicured conditioning and dramatic shot-making opportunities make this course a "must play when visiting the Hilton Head Island/Bluffton area."

Conveniently located on Highway 278 just seven miles west of the bridge to Hilton Head Island, Eagle's Pointe Golf Club is a signature design of five-time Heritage champion Davis Love III. The hallmarks of Eagle's Pointe are its classic risk-reward design, natural beauty, strategy, variety and superb conditioning, along with outstanding customer service.

Winding through moss-draped live oaks and pines and freshwater wetlands and lagoons, Eagle's Pointe's spacious corridors allow golfers to keep driver in hand, but still favor placement over length. Putting your drives in the right position on the generous fairways is a must to negotiate the dramatic bunkering, unique green sites and large, contoured putting surfaces. In Love's own words, "It's easy to make a difficult golf course. The trick is to make a golf course that everybody can play and will want to come back and play again. You have to find a balance." Love has succeeded at Eagle's Pointe, a course that will test every club in your bag, while allowing players to take advantage of their strengths. Big hitters are green-lighted to attack the par 5s, but those with accurate short games can save strokes around the large greens. The Davis Love III-designed Eagle's Pointe Golf Club offers numerous "risk-reward" opportunities.

Accurate tee shots and well-measured approaches are a must on this championship course. The greens are large and well bunkered, and their undulating surfaces demand a delicate, yet determined touch. All 27 greens were converted to Diamond Zoysia in 2008 and 2009, one of the first courses in the Southeast to do so.

With plenty of sand and water hazards, the Clipper Course may be the most difficult of the nines. This George W. Cobb design, built in 1970, requires a good long game and a soft touch around the greens.

Galleon Course at Shipyard Golf Club

The Galleon course Designed by George W. Cobb and built in 1970. These original nine holes of Shipyard Golf Club meander through large oaks and tall pines. Accurate placement of approach shots into heavily guarded greens is necessary on the Galleon course. On the Shipyard's Galleon/Clipper combination, nearly all holes are lined with towering oaks and you just might find a few alligators sunning themselves near its many lagoons and ponds.

Brigantine Course at Shipyard Golf Club

The Brigantine course was designed by Willard C. Byrd and built in 1982. Alligators sun themselves along these scenic, water hazard filled nine holes of the Brigantine course. With slight dog-legs and well-placed bunkers, this course requires shot-making and a good short game.

The course designers inter‐connected two of the three nine-hole courses for a unique and challenging 18‐hole round. The original Clipper and Galleon courses create and exciting combination of long fairways and perilous hazards, while the Brigantine course winds its way around lagoons and breathtaking terrain. The former home of the Hilton Head Senior International form 1982 to 1984, Shipyard Golf Club was rated as one of the finest layouts on the CHAMPIONS TOUR.
