Port Royal Golf Club - Robber's Row Course

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6675 yards

A Pete Dye redesign of a George Cobb original design helped take the Robber's Row Course at Port Royal Golf Club toward the head of the pack on Hilton Head.

A Pete Dye redesign of a George Cobb original design helped take the Robber's Row Course at Port Royal Golf Club toward the head of the pack on Hilton Head. Dye added or redesigned 43 bunkers on the front nine, changing par from 35 to 36 and did some shortening on the back nine to change par from 37 to 36.

The golf course plays little more than 6,000 yards, with a somewhat-friendly 124 slope rating from the tips. Players will have to do some work on their approach shots, as the Cobb/Dye design keeps its greens well protected with bunkers.

The golf course is a scenic delight, however, and in a nice move, you get history lessons at the tee boxes to help let you know the past of the area you are playing, which was once an important location in the Civil War.

    Unfortunately, this was the dissapointment of our Hilton Head vacation. It started when the starter advised us we would need to be patient. Five hours later we had reached our limit. The course was in OK shape but the greens were like shag carpet. My driver would have made a better putter. The comon bermuda rough was an inch too high. Played like US Open rough on Resort course. Miss the fairway by six inches and you had 50/50 chance to find your ball. Club management needs to learn how to speed up play. On the 12 hole, my wife and I resigned ourselves to the slow play and asked the drink cart girl fora light beer, to which we were told the guys in front of us had bought all her beer, no wonder the play was so slow, but that is a club management problem in knowing how to deal with slow play. ave played my first and last round at Port Royal
