Oyster Reef Golf Club opened in 1982 and was immediately recognized as one of the top 25 new courses in America. This Rees Jones design has been voted one of the top 20 courses in the Carolinas and enjoys a reputation as a favorite among Hilton Head Island golfers.

This 18-hole championship course offers 66 bunkers, which are well placed off the elevated tees and guard undulating two and three-tiered greens. Numerous dogleg fairways, accented by strategically located mounds and fairway bunkers, call for well-planned tee shots.

The greens vary in size and their well-defined tiers place a premium on precise approach shots. Hole No. 6, a par 3, has been recognized by many as one of the most spectacular holes on Hilton Head and has been pictured on the cover of numerous golf magazines.

One of the best “pure golf” experiences on Hilton Head Island is the semi-private Oyster Reef Golf Club in Hilton Head Plantation, voted Golf Course of the Year in 2006 by the Lowcountry Golf Course Owners Association.

From its two back tees, you’re asked to hit tee shots through narrow chutes of tall Carolina pines, with no parallel fairways to keep alive an errant tee shot. But from the 6,000-plus yard white tees, Oyster Reef is a lot of fun, if you bring your short game. Jones placed 66 bunkers and many mounds very strategically on the many doglegged fairways, requiring well-placed tee shots to attack the multi-tiered greens.

The picturesque, but treacherous par-3 sixth that plays out to Port Royal Sound is protected by a huge, amoeba-shaped bunker (all of the bunkers were recently renovated) and is the signature hole at Oyster Reef Golf Club, but the challenge of the finishing fivemholes, four great doglegs and a full-water-carry par 3, might be what brings you back again and again. One of the top 25 new courses in America when it opened in 1982, the Rees Jones-designed classic is consistently on top 20 lists in the Carolinas and enjoys a reputation as a favorite among local golfers.
