Two championship 18-hole golf courses play from the 14,000 sq., ft., Palmetto Hall Plantation Club. The par 72, 6,918 yard Arthur Hills Course, opened in 1991, was instantly named a classic by Golf Digest Magazine, which rated it among America’s Top 10 New Courses. The course has since received a 4 star rating and is listed as one of 2008-09’s “Best Places to Play.” The Robert Cupp Course, “unique, innovative and eminently playable,” accommodates higher handicappers as well scratch golfers. Cupp, Golf World’s former Architect of the Year, opened his signature par 72, 7,079 yard course at Palmetto Hall in 1993.
These are the only two courses on Hilton Head Island besides Harbour Town Golf Links to host an annual professional tournament. The expansive practice area features target greens, bunkers and a secluded short game practice area, as well as offering private lessons.
