Robber’s Row Golf Club is a diverse, golf course in Hilton Hill Island. Originally built by George Cobb in 1967 and eventually redesigned by Pete Dye in 1994, this top-notch golf vacation destination is known among sport enthusiasts for its impressive architecture, brush with the Civil War history, and its world-class service. No wonder, hundreds of golfers take time off to visit this South Carolina course.
A resort golf course that spans 6,657 yards from the tips, Robber’s Row Golf Club winds through the north part of the island amid canopies of moss draped oaks and countless magnolias. This 18-hole golf course comes with a series of tempting doglegs and fairways lined with tall, Carolina pines and oaks. Also visible are well-trimmed native grasses and some marshes with crystal clear waters.
Some of the greens at Robber’s Row Golf Club are bordered by marshes, while others have narrow fairways and dangerous bunkers, making it quite a challenging golf haven. Its 7th hole features a very small landing area surrounded by a scenic marsh on its left and a shallow green over a bunker on its right. The picturesque 18th hole is a medium-length par 5 features a dogleg apparently guarded by towering trees on the right and the looming water on the left. Its elevated green makes way to the bunker on the left.
Aside from its well designed golf architecture, Robber’s Row Golf Course also provides some sort of immersion into the American culture. Why not, the entire course itself is set on a former Civil War grounds. In addition, tee boxes at this golf club features historical markers that contain events relevant to the areas.
