Robber's Row at Port Royal Golf Club

Designed in 1967 by noted architects George W. Cobb and Willard C. Byrd, Robber’s Row at the Port Royal Golf Club has been a long time favorite course on Hilton Head Island for many years. This beautiful Lowcountry scenic course was redesigned in 1994 by world famous architect Pete Dye, and is the perfect combination of a challenging course, beautiful scenery and Lowcountry history, making it a golfers dream day on the greens. 

Surrounded by beautiful magnolias and live oaks on the scenic marsh side of the Plantation, the most beautiful of the Port Royal courses offers a 6,657 yard par 72 course that is an excellent choice even for intermediate golfers. Seasoned pros will also enjoy Robber’s Row with its challenging water hazards and well-bunkered greens that require accuracy in the approach and a skill with the putter.

Oozing with SC Lowcountry history, the Robbers’s Row course in Port Royal Plantation has a background that will be of interest to history buffs. Many people do not realize that this course actually sits upon Fort Walker, a Union outpost during the Civil War. Along the course, you will find historical markers noting several interesting events of the Civil War era that describe events which took place on Hilton Head Island.

The tee-shots at Robber’s Row have generous fairways to land in, but approach shots require accuracy to score on the well protected greens.  A quartet of par 3 holes, several sharp doglegs, along with challenging sand and water hazards keep you on your toes as you make your way through this challenging course.
