Hilton Head Golf Course Profile – Barony Course, Port Royal

Hilton Head golf packagesLocated at Port Royal Golf Club, the Barony Course was one of the first golf courses on Hilton Head Island and was built in 1963. The 18-hole golf course was designed by George Cobb and is open year round for visitors who want to play in the cooler months, as well as summer.

The 72-par course offers four different tees with Gold playing the furthest at 6543 yards from the tee. According to the course, “From the tee box, many of the holes appear to be relatively open, but as you approach the newly resurfaced Bermuda greens, the real challenge becomes clear. The greens are generous and protected by thick rough and unforgiving bunkers, entitling the golfer to have good touch with mid to short-range iron shots.” This is a course where accuracy rules!

Port Royal Golf Club offers golf instruction through the Island Golf School where all students go out on the course daily to play 18 holes and practice what they’ve learned. Nine of the holes are played on their own and nine of the holes are played with a golf professional.

Onsite is a 14,000 square foot clubhouse built to look like an antebellum home, which overlooks the golf courses. Inside you will find a grill for lunch or happy hour drinks, as well as a golf shop with apparel, equipment and accessories.

There is a driving range available if you’d like to practice before heading out on the greens. They also offer club rentals and rental carts.
