Designed by the famed George W. Cobb, the Barony Golf Club is among the island’s first golf courses that were opened for play in the early part of 1960. This stunning golf vacation destination comprises 18 of the 45 challenging holes of Port Royal and has been recognized by Golf Magazine as a “Silver Medal Resort”. Looking from the layout’s tee box, most of the holes seem to be relatively open. But as you approach the greens, the real test of golfing skills is getting clearer. Golfers will come across the unforgiving bunkers and the thick rough that would require mid and short iron shots in order to go through the tough ordeals of the greens. The key to getting across is not about length but rather accuracy.
All sorts of golfers flock this outstanding resort each year to experience one of South Carolina’s finest golf vacation destinations. The 6, 530 yards stretch of scenic terrains as well as the resort’s championship holes are some of the things that makes the Barony Golf Club stand out from the rest. While golf enthusiasts enjoy the challenging holes that dot the course, nature lovers can also relax with nature while taking the best views surrounding the resort. Guests can also drop by the pro shop and browse through the items that they can take home as a souvenir from an exciting golf adventure. For those who would want to work on with their golfing skills or give the game of golf a try, Hilton Head’s Island School of Golf will provide the finest golfing lessons, trainings, and facilities. And after a long day at the greens, guests can dine, relax, and have a chat at the clubhouse and restaurant.
