One of the finest golf courses in the beautiful Low Country of South Carolina is situated in Hilton Head Plantation on Hilton Head Island. Opened in 1982, it was immediately recognized as one of the top 25 new courses in America, a tribute to nationally acclaimed course designer, Rees Jones. Jones took complete advantage of the natural features of the land, transforming low areas into beautiful lagoons and creating magnificent tree-lined corridors from tee to green. Mr. Jones said, "I designed Oyster Reef to be a beautiful, strategically challenging course with fairness in mind on each of its 18 holes. I also felt it important that a golfer should never cease to enjoy playing Oyster Reef."Since 1982, golfers have attested not only to the fairness of Oyster Reef, but also to the subtle difficulties that make it a challenge every time it's played. With a respectable number of bunkers, dog legs, water and other natural hazards, Oyster Reef provides a reasonable test of skill for every handicap level.In addition to its 190 acres of scenic natural beauty and challenging layout, Oyster Reef also enjoys the enviable reputation of being one of the best maintained golf courses on Hilton Head. Playable twelve months a year, Oyster Reef is truly an island favorite. Oyster Reef's spectacular 18-hole championship course features a challenging layout surrounded by beautiful lagoons, lush vegetation and scenic views of Port Royal Sound. Numerous bunkers, dog-legs, water hazards and other subtle difficulties add to the thrill of this unforgettable golf experience. Beyond the greens, members and guests relax and unwind in the beauty of the clubhouse, which offers fine and casual dining, a grill room, men's and ladies' locker rooms and a complete golf shop.
