Detailed description of Shipyard Golf Club

Shipyard Golf Club is a Resort, 27 hole golf course facility in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It has 3 9-hole courses that can be played in 3 different 18 hole combinations. They 9 hole courses are Galleon, Clipper, and Brigantine.

Clipper was one of the original 9-hole courses built in 1970. This course has plenty of sand and water hazards, Clipper may be the most difficult of the nines. This George Cobb design requires a good long game and a soft touch around the greens.

3,499 yards / par 36 / rating 36.7

Galleon was built at the same time as Clipper and was designed by Georgia Cobb. These original nine holes meander through large oak and tall pines. Accurate placement of approach shots into heavily guarded greens is necessary on the Galleon.

3,379 yards / par 36 / rating 36.3

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

3,359 yards / par 36 / rating 36.3

In December the round took 5 hours. No ranger, the staff was indifferent to the problem. Our cart died far out on the course and the makeshift scorecards they gave out had no contact phone number, we had walk in to get a new cart! When we finshed up at 5 pm the golf shop was closed as well. Overall a very poor showing!

The 27 hole Shipyard course(s) were -par- (okay) for Hilton Head Island. We had played the very nice Port Royal courses for the previous two days of an annual golf outing.

However the staff at Shipyard, led by an arrogant assistant pro, were nothing less than rude. There is nothing so elegant about this course that would lead to the snooty-ness and rudeness of their pro.

As part of our Golf Package with a noted timeshare organization we were offered "free" golf, paying only cart fees of $35 per golfer (that is $70 per cart, which in and of itself is quite high just for carts). The arrogant pro would not honor are word that we were registered, he made a scene and insisted on "proof" that we were actually registered at the condos forcing us to return to the condo to get certificates of proof. I thought at first that he needed the actual paperwork for his records, but as it turned out, he simply looked at the cards and checked them off. He had seen on his computer at check in that we had indeed played the previous two days at their sister courses at Port Royal (without any such certificate requirement), but he still subjected us to this indignity and inconvenience. Bummer!
