Robert Cupp Course at Palmetto Hall Plantation Ratings & Reviews
2 months ago
Played the Cupp course(twosome). Our tee time was at 3p.m. on a Wednesday and we basically had the course to ourselves. The greens were in really good shape and rolled at a decent speed. Lots of water and sand as you would expect on a HHI course. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was the course is a little difficult to navigate hole2hole when you are a 1st time visitor. Got turned around a few times but eventually figured it out.

We booked a tee time at the Arthur Hills course on the recommendation of a guy we met in a local golf store. We were already playing the three Palmetto Dunes courses during the week and had a spare day available to play a new course. This was his firm favorite of the moderately priced (non-Sea Pines) options in the area.
In all honesty, we felt just a little disappointed after the round. Although the course was very pleasant, it wasn't spectacular in any way, with the possible exception of the 18th hole which is a gem to look at and a great test of golf. The range facilities were ok, nothing special and frankly, the service provided to us by the staff was a notch or two down from the RTJ course we played at Palmetto Dunes the day before. The course was also a notch down but to be fair, so was the greens fee ($50 cheaper to be precise).
The course is absolutely fine and well priced compared with those of a similar standard elsewhere on the Island i.e. better than say Shipyard, not as good as Palmetto Dunes or Sea Pines. If I were asked the same question we asked, I would probably point someone towards Olde South rather than here.
The huge let down for us on the day was the speed of play. The foursome in front of us took more than 5 hours to complete their round and refused to invite us through on the several occasions we caught them on the tee box. The marshal told us he had warned them the first time he came around but this didn't make any difference and it was another 9 holes before he returned again, this time just for a wave as he drove by. It really is frustrating when a facility does not take the initiative to care for the majority of their guests when a group is clearly holding everyone up.

Palmetto Hall Plantation (Robert Cupp course), rated 3-1/2 stars: Some of Robert Cupp's original sharp lines, angles and geometric symmetry have mellowed with time, but this computer-aided design golf course, is still a bit different than the norm. The pyramid shaped mounding, and geometric bunkering and water-hazards are special, as is the good mix of holes with water and those without.
