Port Royal Golf Club is a Resort, 54 hole golf facility located in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The facility has three 18-hole golf courses. They are the Barony Golf Course, Robber's Row Golf Course, and the Planter's Row Golf Course. All three courses are alternated so that one is for members only, and the other two are open to the public.
The Robber's Row Golf Course at Port Royal Golf Club first opened for play in 1967. The course was designed by George W. Cobb. The course was redesigned in 1994 by Pete Dye.
Robber's Row is a par-72 layout that plays to a maximum distance of 6,657 yards for a course rating of 73.3 and a slope rating of 134.
The course is located on the scenic marsh side of the Port Royal Plantation and cuts through beautiful strands of magnolia and live oaks. 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.

An all-time favorite. Excellent mix of hole lengths and difficulties, especially from the back tees. Front nine plays easier, until #9. The sequence of #9-#11 and then the #17-18 finishing holes are as good as it gets. Starter showed up late and had trouble getting his act together. Excellent on-site restaurant.

Hopefully the drought and heavy Spring play were the cause for the thin conditions in the fairways. Most greens were good, although a few had touches of some kind of fungus. Cart paths are pretty rough with tree roots. I have a discount for being a property owner, but I'd only use this course for a warm-up the way it is right now. The same goes for Planter's Row.

I really enjoyed this course. While there are houses on the course they are set back so you barely see them and certainly do not come into play. This is just one of three courses within the Port Royal complex.

A fun course with some interesting holes. A good price in the off season with a friendly staff. Easy to access, right off the main Hilton Head road.
