Oyster Reef

The Course

Architect: Rees Jones and Keith Evans
Built: 1982

Rees Jones’ course design showcases the natural landscape, crafting a remarkable layout that strikes a perfect balance between challenge and fairness. This 18-hole championship course, framed by stunning lagoons, verdant foliage, and captivating views of Port Royal Sound, presents numerous bunkers, doglegs, water hazards, and subtle difficulties along the way. The routing features some slightly elevated tees and velvety fairways, carved through a landscape of stately live oak and pine trees. Well-positioned fairway bunkers are frequently in play and greens of various sizes and tiers place a premium on precision in approach shots. The allure of Oyster Reef lies not only in its remarkable architecture but also in its unique gems like the par-3 sixth hole that offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Port Royal Sound and demands a precisely executed tee shot to navigate the encircling water hazards. Oyster Reef also boasts the distinction of being one of Hilton Head’s best- maintained golf courses. Playable year-round, Oyster Reef has become an island favorite for serious golf enthusiasts and locals alike.
