Golf Courses for a Beginner – Hilton Head Forum
In all honesty, none of the courses are easy if you are a true beginner. Just keep up pace of play, play "best ball" if needed or pick up and replace your ball if folks are right on your tail. Mostly, just enjoy 😊.
Play These Kid- and Family-friendly Golf Courses on Hilton Head
In 2016, Golf Magazine listed Hilton Head among the top five golf havens for retirees. Golf Digest recently ranked it in seven of the eight top categories for golf destinations in its “Top 10 Best Courses” listing, while the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) recognized it as the 2017 Sustainable Golf Destination of the Year.
Southern Elegance and Natural Beauty
Twenty-seven holes of spectacular golf in one fun, family-oriented package. Nestled within Hilton Head’s natural setting of majestic Carolina pine trees, flowering magnolias and moss draped oaks, the Shipyard Golf Club delivers memorable experiences for exceptional value.
Yet regulars know that green, not red or white, is the dominant color here. Thanks to acres of pines, moss-draped live oaks, sturdy cabbage palmettos and dense shrubbery, not to mention more than 400 golf holes scattered across the breeze-fueled island, you have one pretty picture.Late March and early April are the perfect weeks to tee it up in Hilton Head, when temperatures are ideal and the azaleas are bursting with activity. Understandably, that’s when courses are most crowded — and most expensive.
The Trophy Collection
Golf can be a lot of fun. Some people take it very seriously. We just have a good time once a year when we are in Hilton Head. We stay at Bluewater Resort, which comes with Golf Privileges at Golden Bear Course in Indigo Run and The Country Club of Hilton Head. We’ve also played at Shipyard Golf Club. They have three nine-hole golf courses. You can play a combination to make 18 holes.
Hilton Head Island
Put your game to the ultimate test at Harbour Town Golf Links at The Sea Pines Resort. It is both the crowning achievement of famed designer Pete Dye and design consultant Jack Nicklaus, and a perennial favorite among PGA TOUR players, as it places a premium on finesse, imagination and shot making, rather than strength.
Shipyard Golf Club offers three nine-hole course for mix or match
A third aspect is the level of service. Shipyard Golf Club is a well oiled machine, with staff waiting to unload your bags to a welcoming staff in a super-sharp clubhouse geared toward resort players. At some golf courses, it feels like you are entering a club of which you are not a member. Not at Shipyard. You feel from the start like you belong. I liked the dining area setup. Love those medieval-looking chairs in a cozy setting.
