Hole Number: 1
Long but forgiving off the tee, the opening hole favors a drive down the right side. The approach to this long, narrow green, flanked on the left by out-of-bounds, can play even longer into the wind.
Hole Number: 2
Stay right off this tee. Don't go for the green in two; water short right, a bunker short left and a tall tree guard this green. The smart play is to lay up to 150-100 yards out. The shallow, one-club green is raised in the middle.
Hole Number: 3
A long bunker on the right and a small bunker on the left guard this fairway. Play to the 150-yard post. This deep, elevated green is guarded on the right by two deep bunkers. A back pin placement may require an additional 2-3 clubs on your approach.
Hole Number: 4
This par 3 requires an exacting shot to an elevated, two-tiered green with two bunkers short left. Make sure you have enough club and be wary of a back left pin placement. Out-of-bounds lurks just to the left of the green.
Hole Number: 5
Tee shots to the left of the 150-yard post may be blocked by trees, so stay to the right and leave yourself an open shot to the green. Elevated, small and protected on the right by a large bunker, this green can be tough to hit. Choose your club wisely.
Hole Number: 6
Check the wind; being short is not an option. A front left pin placement can be tricky. Long or anything left are good bailouts here.
Hole Number: 7
This wide fairway runs downhill past the 15-yard post toward the lagoon. Do not miss this long narrow green to the left. Pin placement on this elevated green can make a 2-3 club difference on your approach shot, especially into the wind.
Hole Number: 8
This demanding, uphill tee shot is to a crowned fairway and requires commitment and precision. A well-bunkered, elevated green makes the approach play long. Take plenty of club and check the wind.
Hole Number: 9
Getting past the fairway bunkers opens up the left side; otherwise, it's a narrow landing area between them. The 45-yard deep green is only 20 paces wide. Large bunkers protect its entire left side; the only bailout is on the right.
Hole Number: 10
A tee shot down the right side is good here, but pay attention to the right fairway bunker. A smart lay-up to 100 yards leaves a wedge to a wide, shallow green. Don't miss a front left pin long, as out-of- bounds lurks just beyond the left side of the green.
Hole Number: 11
A long tee shot at the water tower can cut the corner or you can play between the bunkers. This elevated green has a valley running through the middle that runs off the back. A long approach here can find water... and alligators. A back right pin placement may require an extra club.
Hole Number: 12
This slight dog-leg left narrows past the 150-yard post, making placement off the tee critical. Trees to the left can block your approach so favor the right side. The wind can be tricky here. Another small, elevated green, guarded in the front by two large bunkers, runs very close to out-of-bounds long and left.
Hole Number: 13
A tee shot to the left of the 150-yard post on this dogleg left may get blocked by trees. Stay straight and you'll have less than 150 yards for your approach. A small, two-tiered green, high on the left side and low on the right, requires precise iron play.
Hole Number: 14
Attention to wind direction is crucial for proper club selection here. Trouble is short and left, and the tree on the right can come into play. Be smart and take an extra club.
Hole Number: 15
This long par 4 opens up past the mound down the right side; the only trouble is the bunker on the left. A good approach shot must clear the front bunkers to find this small green. A back right pin placement can be tough to find, so play to the middle of the green.
Hole Number: 16
Our Fazio Signature Hole. This fairway is flanked by large bunkers, making accuracy a must. Anything beyond the right bunkers can find water. The approach to this long, narrow green can play very long into the wind. With a bunker left and water right, there's no bail out. Choose your club and go for it.
Hole Number: 17
This is one of the finest par 3 holes on Hilton Head Island. Wind is important because a shot that is short will find the water. The only smart play is to the middle of the green. If you're lucky enough to find the putting surface, take your two putts and move on.
Hole Number: 18
