Barony Course, Port Royal Golf Club
Hilton Head, USA
Barony Course Overview
Designed by famous golf architect George W. Cobb in the early 1960s, the Barony Course is the oldest at Port Royal Golf Club. Although the course is relatively short by modern-standards at 6,654 yards, the course is characterized as being a bad-putters nightmare. The Bermuda grass greens are especially tricky during peak season when they are at their quickest. The fast greens are also well-protected by deep, unforgiving bunkers which means a certain premium is put on the short-game versus length off the tee.
The course has seen a few improvements throughout the years, all of which were done following Cobb’s original design ideas. The irrigation was improved along with the Bermuda grass on the greens, meaning there will rarely be a time when you are not playing the Barony Course at its best.
The 9th hole of the Barony Course is a challenging par-5. Measuring in at 513-yards, golfers are presented with deep fairway bunkers and a lagoon off to the right, meaning any errant tee shot will be punished. The second shot should favor the right side to maximize the angle of approach with the third to a green framed by bunkers.
