Tons of rain before we played. Lack of maintenance was obvious. The most disappointing part was the staff. Grumpy and didn’t seem like the wanted to be there. We are on vacation and service is a big deal. They need to be clued in.

Coming down to HHI has always been a blast. We’ve stayed inside shipyard for 10 years now playing the course multiple times. I couldn’t be more disappointed or frustrated with the course. Conditions were brutal even for the drought. The

Staff was fine not polite nor rude. What doesn’t make any sense is the fact they have no WATER on the course. If shipyard is reading this be prepared to lose the course when sued. Course conditions are a joke, greens are unpredictable. Do yourself a favor and don’t play this course till these problems are fixed.

Always play here at least once when visiting Hilton Head. I find the course has improved in the past 4 years. the greens and tees are much improved and the pace of play was fine. Finally got to play Brigatine and thoroughly enjoyed the layout. White tees were best for me, some holes play long.

The Shipyard Golf Club is in the best condition I probably have ever seen it. The greens are rolling smooth, and the farways/rough are lush. The re-bunkering project has turned out great. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. In my opinion it is a great spot for a family enjoying the outdoors, and for those beginners.

Great experience from the bucket of practice balls to the 19th hole cold brew. Polite and accommodating starter. Course was in great condition from tees to greens. Pace of play was super and never had to wait for a shot, round of golf in approximately 3 1/2 hrs. Nice 19th hole was comfortably shaded overlooking the finishing hole with nice happy hour pricing. Definitely recommend this track to others !!!

Pace of play was very good on our first nine but at the turn players we never saw all day now in front of us . No ranger or starter seen on turn. . Ended with foursome of ladies about on 12 who were very slow. The twosome in front of us lottery just drove around them and skipped a hole. We were a twosome and and arrived on the tee while they hit several shots . Did not offer to allow us to play through. Waited on every shot tha rest of the day when nobody was in front of them. Perhaps they stopped for lunch or just were on the wtong nine. ?

Open arrival the staff were extremely helpful in directing where everything was and what to do. As a result pace of play moved extremely fast. Never waiting or rushed from behind. Coarse way in great shape. Greens were left a little long and need some adjustment to get used to.

I played Shipyard a year ago and was disappointed in the condition of the course and had decided I would not play it this year. I played earlier in the week at another course and one of my playing partners commented on the good condition of the course so I decided to give it another try and am glad I did. The fairways had more grass than any other course I’ve played here. The greens were in excellent condition. The course was busy but the pace of play was great, finishing in under 4 hours. I’ll be returning soon.

Played the Brigantine Course to start. Played the tips (gold tees). The slope is 138 and it felt it with water on every hole. Water comes into play twice on hole #2. I likes the layout of Brigantine. The conditions were good. One bunker had almost no sand. We payed the Galleon course for the second 9. Moved up to the blue tees. A much easier course. But the conditions were not as good. The back 9 were were stuck behind a VERY SLOW mixed foursome with no ranger in sight. Yet we finished the 18 in 4 hours! The greens on both courses rolled smooth and fast, however. The two bathrooms on the respective courses were not well maintained. One had the paper towel dispenser jammed. There was NO WATER on the course! The starter and the bag handler both neglected to tell us there was a water and ice dispenser right by the club house/putting green. They do have a good chipping, bunker and putting practice area. I would not give them high marks for customer service, however. This course is a good value at the $35 we paid on GolfNow but NOT the $80 they get for regular rates.

The course was in excellent condition and the greens the fastest we played which was a nice change from other courses in the area ... well worth the very reasonable price. Still the day could of gone downhill if the marshal had not shunted us to another of the 3 nines due to a pre-wedding golf tournament on our scheduled course. We finished in 3 hours ... fantastic!
