Port Royal Golf and Racquet Club

Nestled along the Atlantic coastline, Port Royal Golf Club, named one of the “Top 10 ‘Exotic’ Golf Courses in the World” by World Property Channel and one of the “Top 75 U.S. Golf Resorts” by Golf Digest magazine, is located on the northwestern point of Hilton Head Island. Praised for its exceptional golf experience, The Club is situated in the pristine Port Royal Plantation along with the luxurious oceanfront Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.

This golf haven was designed by some of the best golf architects, such as George Cobb, Pete Dye and William Byrd, and having hosted the Champions TOUR Hilton Head Seniors International, it has been honored with the presence of some of golf’s legendary players. The Port Royal Golf Club was recognized as a “1997 Silver Medal Resort” by Golf magazine for its three spectacular 18-hole golf courses: Barony, Planter’s Row, and Robber’s Row.

Port Royal features two distinct courses: The Barony Course, one of the first courses on Hilton Head Island, known for generous greens and unforgiving bunkers, and Robber's Row Course, set on former Civil War grounds, presenting scenic play that is ideal for intermediate golfers.

The Barony Course was designed by George W. Cobb in the early 1960s and was one of the first courses on Hilton Head Island. From the tee box, many of the holes appear to be relatively open, but as you approach the newly resurfaced Bermuda greens, the real challenge becomes clear. The greens are generous and protected by thick, rough and unforgiving bunkers, entitling the golfer to have good touch with mid- to short-range iron shots. This is a course where accuracy, not length, is paramount.

Robber’s Row was designed in 1967 by noted architects George W. Cobb and Willard C. Byrd, and was redesigned in 1994 by world famous architect Pete Dye. The course is located on the scenic marsh side of the Port Royal Plantation and cuts through beautiful strands of magnolia and live oaks. This course sets atop former Civil War grounds and features historical markers throughout the course, describing events which took place on the Island. Although tee-shots have generous fairways to land in, approach shots require accuracy to the well-protected greens. Robber’s Row is a course rich in history and challenge to any golfer.
