About the Courses
Arthur Hills Course
The Arthur Hills Course at Palmetto Hall opened in 1991 to rave reviews and was almost instantly named to Golf Digest’s list as one of America’s Top 10 New Courses.
In 2008-09, the magazine awarded the course 4-stars as one of “Best Places to Play.” The Arthur Hills course plays 6,918 yards from the back tees with a course rating of 73.8 and a slope of 139. At 6,257 yards (70.6/128), the White Tees will prove to be a formidable foe for most golfers, while ladies will find the course enjoyable from the Red Tees (5,006/70.3/119).
Hills’ signature style is fully on display here with undulated fairways with lots of mounding wind through heavily wooded forests of moss-draped oaks and towering pines, that frame the fairways of many holes. Lush fairways and crystalline lakes give way to large greens, with bunkers butted up against the sides, providing golfers with several challenges.
Fortunately, most of the hazards are lateral and sit off to the sides of the fairways and only a handful of holes require an aerial approach on to the green.
Robert Cupp Course
Unique. Innovative. Eminently playable. The Robert Cupp course is a stunningly original design that tests the better player, but accommodates higher handicappers as well.
Cupp, Golf World’s former Architect of the Year, opened his signature course at Palmetto Hall in 1993, Robert Cupp Course at Palmetto Hall on Hilton Head Island had the highest slope rating from the back tees (152) of any course in the state. Although that honor has since bestowed upon Pete Dye and the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort – which comes in at the USGA max of 155.
Despite this difficult rating from the tips, the course continues to draw high praise for its flexibility, sound shot values and impeccable year-round conditioning.
