How to get there:

Northern end of Hilton Head Island

Leave i-95 at exit 8 and follow Hwy 278 direction Hilton Head Island. Where the 278 splits into the Cross Island Parkway (278 E) and William Hilton Parkway (278 E), follow William Hilton Parkway. After 3.4 mls turn left into Port Royal Plantation.

Port Royal Golf Club (Robber's Row course)

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

Est. 1968

Port Royal Golf Club (Robber's Row course): Arguably the best of the Port Royal resort courses, especially after the signficant redesign by Pete Dye of the original George Cobb design. A good variety of holes cut through stands of magnolia and oak trees lead to tricky greens that are well defended by some improved bunkering. Water is a factor on several holes.
