Designed by Gary Player, the course was the first to be built on the Hilton Head Plantation. The course combines tree lined fairways with wetland surrounded holes to make the course a true picture of Hilton Head. The now private Dolphin Head Golf Club was described by Celebrate Hilton Head Magazine as the “Hidden Gem” and best-kept secret on the island. Players will have a memorable experience playing a unique course with a picturesque backdrop.
