About the Course

After a failed attempt at changing the golf course from Bermuda to bent grass, Oyster Reef has rebounded, and more than 20 years after its opening, it is beginning to get the same acclaim it once garnered.

"The layout, on the other hand, always has been and will continue to be top notch," said former TravelGolf.com writer Shane Sharp.

"True, the course winds its way through a number of houses that sit right off the fairways and greens, but Jones' clever use of dogleg holes, elevated greens and oyster shell-shaped bunkers makes the course one of the most fun on the island."

Playing to more than 7,000 yards with a 139-slope rating from the tips, Oyster Reef continues to be a place where golfers go to look for a challenge, as well as one of the most visually appealing courses in the entire Hilton Head region.
