Robert Cupp Course

When this boldly designed course opened in 1993, the Robert Cupp Course located at Palmetto Hall redefined traditional golf course architecture. Cupp, who was named the 1992 Golf Architect of the year by Golf World Magazine, originally planned the course on a computer that resulted in a finished product of straight lines, unusual shapes and many sharp angles. The course seems traditional when you are playing it but as you look closer there are many challenges created by the design. Ranked as one of the tougher courses on the Island with a slope rating of 144, the course is very playable for all levels of players from low to high handicaps. Walking is permitted on this course. The course from the back tees measures 7079 yards and from the forward tees it is 5220 yards long.


This course is located in close proximity to the Hilton Head airport and the hospital. Turn off of 278 onto Beach City Road and Palmetto Hall Plantation will be on the North side of the road. Follow signs to the Palmetto Hall clubhouse.

Tips from the PGA Pro

In my opinion, the Robert Cup Course at Palmetto Hall is one of the hardest golf courses in the area from the championship tees. The course design is very unique. Straight lines, sharp angles, and unusual shapes are very visible from the air.
