This golf course is a bit difficult, but did enjoy the family tees for my average golf game. The greens were in great condition. Enjoyed the day, the weather and the course.

The old Ocean Course at Sea Pines has been redone by Davis Love III and is now called Atlantic Dunes. Solid golf course on Hilton Head. Firm fast fairways, quick greens. Lots of water though, and the green complexes are a bit much for a resort course. At 7099 yards it's a good test. Enjoy!

I am an 18 handicapper (originally a 10 handicap when I played more often) who hits the ball fairly long. I played the white tees but should've played the blue tees. Pace of play was fine although I went out early (~730am). I thought the course was interesting (hazards, dog legs, water, ...) but the greens were in pretty bad... More

With a name like " ocean course" you would expect to see the ocean but only on the green at (I think)16 do you see the ocean. Course is fine- it needs work but it's fine the pro shop runs specials so you get a discount if you play both courses however ocean is the lack of the 2 courses.... More

The Ocean Course was the second course my father and I played on our vacation. I have visited the Sea Pines Resort on previous vacations, but this was the first time playing golf on the resort. Visiting the resort previous times I knew you had to pay to get on, but I did not think you would have to pay... More

My wife and I played the course with two other vacationers from Chicago. It had rained the night before so it was cart paths only. We all struggled with the heat and high humidity and the extra walking. We felt cart paths only was a severe overreaction. The course wasn't that wet. The fairways and rough were in pretty good...

I played with two of my son in laws and a friend. We had a great time. The new clubhouse and driving range are top notch. We were warned that the greens were undergoing aeirification and there were some areas that were obviously being worked on but still had a good experience. Its called the Ocean Course- I'm assuming this... More

This course was fun. Played with my son and were paired with another twosome. Pretty challenging. Not unfairly narrow. The greens are a little beat up.

Great course and facilities, but had to take this from 4.6 stars to 3.2 (rounded down) because of the greens. Had really talked up the ocean course with my friend and was excited to play. As we teed off (after paying in the beautiful new clubhouse and hitting balls on the amazing driving range), we were very excited. As we... More

Fabulously remodeled clubhouse and pro shop. Large range facility in excellent condition. Course was in nice shape, although the greens were a bit slow. Had a drink afterwards overlooking the course afterwards. Wait staff was pleasant.
