The Barony Course was designed by George W. Cobb in the early 1960s and was one of the first courses on Hilton Head Island. From the tee box, many of the holes appear to be relatively open, but as you approach the newly resurfaced Bermuda greens, the real challenge becomes clear. The greens are generous and protected by thick, rough and unforgiving bunkers, entitling the golfer to have good touch with mid- to short-range iron shots. This is a course where accuracy, not length, is paramount. The Barony Course features include an onsite driving range.
