Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

By Roger Cox, Editor

Redevelopment at Port Royal has brought a change to the tennis options. There is now a new tennis complex adjacent to the golf fairways at the Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club. It consists of eight Har-Tru courts and two pickleball courts. The new racquet club installed Dale Brown as head pro (I'm waiting for more information about his background and the programs he'll be offering).

Other Recreation

Beach. A broad beach runs the length of Hilton Head Island.

Golf Courses. Port Royal has three 18-hole designer golf courses

Barony: This 18-hole course, designed by George W. Cobb, was one of the first to be built on Hilton Head Island. Deceptively open in appearance, it becomes challenging near the greens, which are protected by think rough and unforgiving bunkers.
Robber's Row: Willard C. Byrd designed these 18 holes to have narrow, tree-lined fairways, small, undulating greens, and the challenge of water along 10 of the holes.
Planter's Row: Although the original architects were George W. Cobb and Willard C. Byrd, Pete Dye came along in the mid 1990s and reconfigured it. Its fairways cross Civil War sites—their importance explained by historical markers&mash;now rich in magnolia trees and live oaks. Landing areas off the tee are generous but approaches to the green demand accuracy.

Lodging

The five-story, 412-room Westin fronts the beach roughly half a mile from the racquet club. It has a spa and fitness center, three swimming pools, and a kids' club.

Restaurants

The clubhouse at Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club has the Robber's Row Grille, oopen for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are more dining options at the Westin. In addition to a poolside grill for lunch, it has two other restaurants: View 32 and the farm- and sea-to-table Carolina Room.
