Oyster Reef Golf Club

Established in 1982, the Rees Jones designed Oyster Reef Golf Club, located inside the gates of beautiful Hilton Head Plantation, is popular among locals and visitors of the Island. This semi-private18-hole award winning championship course has been voted one of the “Top 20 Courses in the Carolinas”, one of the “Top 75 U.S. Golf Resorts” by Golf Digest and was voted the 2006 Low Country Golf Course of the Year. Oyster Reef Golf Club enjoys a quite a prestigious reputation on Hilton Head Island and is a “must golf” course during your visit.

Situated on 190 picturesque acres of beautiful SC Low Country land, the course is surrounded by marshes, lagoons, moss dripping oak trees and lush foliage. The Oyster Reef Course utilizes Hilton Head’s natural landscape to create a challenging course with breathtaking Island views. Designer Rees Jones used the natural landscape and terrain of the Low Country to make one of the Island’s most awe inspiring holes, which has graced the cover of many golf magazines. The signature hole, the Par 3 #6 hole at the Oyster Reef Golf Club has a beautiful view of the Port Royal Sound that seems to go on for miles. The play is 192 yards from the championship tees to the green and the spectacular view makes it hard to concentrate on anything other than the Low Country scenery. For even more distraction, Jones added an extra large bunker right in front of the hole to offer a challenge for even the most experienced golfer!

Ranging from 7,014 yards from the championship tees to 5,288 yards from the forward tees, Oyster Reef  challenges and rewards golfers of all skill levels.  The 18-hole championship course offers 66 bunkers, elevated tees, tiered greens, and numerous dogleg fairways for interesting and challenging play. The well designed tiers and varying greens size calls for planned approaches for every shot on the course. The two back tees require you to call on your golf skills while you attempt to hit tee shots through the tall Carolina pines and around the bunkers, and the water hazards throughout the 18 scenic holes keep you alert and intrigued as you prepare for each unique shot.
