Palmetto Hall Plantation (Robert Cupp course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1993

Palmetto Hall Plantation (Robert Cupp course): Some of Robert Cupp's original sharp lines, angles and geometric symmetry have mellowed with time, but this computer-aided design golf course, is still a bit different than the norm. The pyramid shaped mounding, and geometric bunkering and water-hazards are special, as is the good mix of holes with water and those without. The course is a good challenge, although it feels a tad more open than its sister-course at Palmetto Hall (the Arthur Hills course). Like the Arthur Hills, it is well-maintained and part of a pleasant environment which embraces woodland and marshland.
