The Courses at Shipyard

The Clipper / The Brigandine / The Galleon

With its three distinct nines, Shipyard Golf Club stands as one of Hilton Head Island’s oldest golfing destinations, cherished by locals and visitors alike. The 27-hole layout epitomizes classic Hilton Head golf, meandering through lagoons, wetlands, and lakes, graced by mature pines and hardwoods adorned with Spanish moss. The original Clipper and Galleon courses, crafted by George Cobb in 1970, are complemented by the Brigantine, designed by Willard C. Byrd in 1982. These courses offer a diverse range of holes, featuring doglegs in both directions and Diamond Zoysia greens nestled among the trees, delivering a balance of playability and challenge. With four sets of tees, each nine accommodates golfers of every skill level. While not overly punishing, the nines do feature narrow fairways and a plethora of bunkers, not to mention significant water hazards that come into play. However, what truly distinguishes Shipyard Golf Club is its natural beauty, teeming with wildlife such as herons, deer, and, of course, numerous alligators. In addition to the golf course, Shipyard Golf Club offers a comprehensive set of amenities, including a driving range, short-game area, and practice putting green. For dining, the Brickyard Pub within the clubhouse serves everything from a beer and appetizer to a full meal. It has magnificent views, large-screen TVs for sports fans, and a fully stocked bar. 

Shipyard Golf Club offers the flexibility of three nine-hole courses that can be played in three unique 18-hole combinations. Each course offers its own set of challenges and rewards, with water hazards featuring prominently on many holes. Known for its abundant sand and water hazards, the Clipper course is often considered the most demanding of the three nines. Designed by George W. Cobb, it requires both a strong long game and a delicate touch on and around the greens. The Galleon, the original nine holes at Shipyard Golf Club, meanders through expansive oaks and majestic pines. Precise placement of approach shots into well-protected greens is essential to navigate the Galleon course successfully. The Brigantine nine presents' golfers with an engaging challenge, as alligators often sun themselves near its picturesque water hazards. Featuring slight doglegs and strategically placed bunkers, this course demands a combination of shot-making skills and a proficient short game.
