Temporary greens

Reduced prices due to dirt greens. I always enjoy Island West, but the greens are in horrible shape.

Course was in horrible shape. No ranger out which contributed to a extremely long round. And to top it off the guy cleaning clubs just three our clubs in the back of the car with out closing them. Obvious he is only there for free rounds. My husband and I will never play here again!!

On June 22 the course was in very good shape, except for the greens that are in very bad shape because of some disease.

Not in real good shape. Greens are terrible and are completely brown and dead grass. Rates are cheap but you understand why. But still the worst day on a course is still better than the best day at work

Good value - Nice course - about a 25 minute drive from Hilton Head Island but the green fees are significantly less than on Hilton Head. so it's worth the drive.

I've played Island West a few times when visiting and usually it's a good value. It has challenging holes but this March the greens are a mess. Hard as a rock and bumpy and patchy would be a good descripion. There are many better options in the area at a reasonable price. Look elsewhere until greens are fixed.

Located about 20 minutes off of Hilton Head Island and near the Del Webb Sun City development this very playable low country designed course is easily accessible off of Hwy. 278 and offers your typical yardage spread from 6800-5454 yards depending upon your tee selection. In pretty good shape considering we played during the first week of March. Greens rolled... More

We played this course about 1 week after heavy rains. The fairways were so wet that mud was over our shoes in the middle of the fairway. The balls just plugged. We lost several balls in the fairways as could not find them for the mud & high grass. Not even the tee boxes were cut as that grass was... More

I played Island West on the way out to Charleston Airport and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was more challenging than I remembered, perhaps because I played the blues this time. The first two holes are relatively innocent, but as the round continues there are many holes that require good positioning of your drive and forced carries to... More

Island West is a challenging course but fair from the whites. Much more forgiving from the seniors and ladies. Very well laid out with plenty of water as are most in the Low Country of South Carolina. The birds and wildlife are a beautiful distraction not to mention the alligators. Note" balls within twenty yards should be considered a free... More
