At long last, the public can play Dolphin Head Golf Club in Hilton Head Plantation, the only course in the area designed by Gary Player. In building the course, Player’s main goal was to leave intact as much of the terrain and to move as little dirt as possible, keeping a natural look to the golf course. The success he achieved is amazing, as is the golf course. It’s one of the most visually stunning and best maintained courses in the area. The surrounding natural preserves and local wildlife were not interrupted and harmony between man and nature has been achieved. Dolphin Head Golf Club opened in 1974 as the first course built in the Hilton Head Plantation. Local course architect Clyde Johnson renovated the tees, fairways and greens in 2010, installing denser Celebration Bermuda in the fairways and tee boxes and Mini-Verde Bermuda on the greens. The result is lusher fairways and quicker greens, something admired by the majority of golfers. Your round concludes on a signature hole. Number 18 is a dogleg right par 5, playing 470 yards from the White Tees. A good drive up the left side may just inspire you to go for the green in two, however danger awaits any errant attempts. A large pond makes up the right side of the fairway from about 300 yards out and the left side of the green is home to a rogue sand bunker. To further complicate matters, the green has two tiers and a bit of slope to it. Take your par and head to the 19th hole. Although the golf course is the main attraction, Dolphin Head Golf Club is a place that, as a member, you can make friendships that last a lifetime. As a member, you’ll also enjoy full-service dining, social events, card groups, book clubs, and more. With a Brown Golf membership, you’ll get so much more than just being a member of Dolphin Head Golf Club. You’ll enjoy unlimited golf at 7 championship, 18-hole golf courses, unlimited range balls and use of the practice facility, discounts on guest fees, lodging and pro shop merchandise and unlimited golf lessons with a PGA professional.

Course was beautiful. Ranger was a jerk. We were playing with two jr players and confirmed that jrs were welcomed beforehand. Ranger accused us of holding up play, but we were waiting on the group in front of us multiple times. Appears the ranger doesnt keep up with what is going on on the course. The group behind our foursome was a threesome and they were playing a scramble. We were being pushed from behind and held up in the front. They ca use our jr golfers for an excuse all they want, but they were not what was holding up play. We were sandwiched in a no win situation. What was supposed to be a very nice day with my kids and dad turned into a rushed situation. If you are going to use jr play as an excuse for slow play in your course , the. Dont accept jr players or offer jr rates.
Course wass nice. Staff wass friendly. My only complaint is they were doing lawn maintenance while I was putting one one whole. The guys was weedeating the grass on the green side bunker while I was putting. Really annoying. Then on the next par 3 the guy was mowing the whole time.
Awesome course for all levels. Im a 10 handicap and played from Blue Tee shot 81. I didnt know what to expect but dont take my review. Go enjoy Gary Players course.
Course was pretty nice, rangers at the course were assholes. Would not recommend course if youre are trying to take your time and enjoy your golf outing
