Robber's Row Course

Picture-Perfect Play

Robber’s Row was designed in 1967 by noted architects George W. Cobb and Willard C. Byrd, and was redesigned in 1994 by world famous architect Pete Dye. The course is located on the scenic marsh side of the Port Royal Plantation and cuts through beautiful strands of magnolia and live oaks. This course sets atop former Civil War grounds and features historical markers throughout the course, describing events which took place on the Island. Although tee-shots have generous fairways to land in, approach shots require accuracy to the well-protected greens. Robber’s Row is a course rich in history and challenge to any golfer.

Robber's Row Course Tour

  • Hole 1

    Par 4

    This short opening hole demands accuracy, not length off the tee. A long iron or fairway wood will leave a short iron or wedge to an undulating green. Water lines the entire right side, so favor the left. This should be a good birdie opportunity.

  • Hole 2

    Par 5

    This reachable par offers you another birdie opportunity. Play down the center of the fairway. Lay up your second shot or go for broke, but favor the left side to avoid trouble and give yourself the best angle at this narrow deep green. Pay attention to the pin position.

  • Hole 3

    Par 4

    This difficult par 4 requires an accurate tee shot. Favor the left side for the best approach shot angle. Again, pay attention to the pin location as this is another deep green, and try not to miss to the right.

  • Hole 4

    Par 3

    This is the longest par 3 on the course and is made more difficult by usually playing into the wind. Do not miss short or left; keep things simple and play for the middle of this undulating green.

  • Hole 5

    Par 4

    Avoid a big number on this short par 4 by staying away from the left side that is lined with sand and water. A fairway wood from the tee will leave a short-mid iron to this elevated green.

  • Hole 6

    Par 5

    This monster par 5 is a true three shot hole. To cut distance off the tee, favor the right side of the fairway. Play your second shot left for a good approach shot angle. The shallow green is somewhat flat, so fire your third shot at the pin and give a go at birdie.

  • Hole 7

    Par 4

    This straightaway par 4 requires an accurate tee shot. Avoid the bunker on the right for a good angle at the green. Play your approach to the middle of this small green.

  • Hole 8

    Par 3

    This short par 3 plays to a very undulating and elevated green. Trouble lies short and left with water and deep bunkers. This green is 32 yards deep, so pay attention to the pin location in order to set up an easier putt.

  • Hole 9

    Par 4

    This par 4 begins a stretch of three consecutive tough holes. Bunkers flank the fairway near the 150-yard marker. Take an extra club on your approach shot to avoid water and sand short of this fairly flat green. Par is a good score here.

  • Hole 10

    Par 4

    The back nine begins with this long dogleg right. Favor the right side to shorten the hole and avoid the bunker on the left. Play for the right side of this green as it will kick shots left toward the two deep bunkers. Again, Par here is a score to be proud of.

  • Hole 11

    Par 4

    The last in the series of three tough holes, this long par requires a tee shot squeezed between large live oaks. Favor the left side and avoid the bunker on the right. The large elevated green falls off to the left toward a huge bunker. Once again, par is a great score.

  • Hole 12

    Par 3

    This short par 3 is all carry over a lagoon to a narrow, deep green. Pay careful attention to the pin position as it can have a big impact on club selection. Trouble lies short and right, so play to the center or left side of the green.

  • Hole 13

    Par 4

    This short par 4 has trouble left and an open bunker right. Play a fairway wood over the left edge of the right side bunker to leave a mid-iron approach shot. Avoid the monster bunker on the left and play for the middle of this sloping green.

  • Hole 14

    Par 5

    This reachable par 5 offers another birdie opportunity. A drive down the left side or center of the fairway is ideal. You can miss right, but you will be blocked by large oak trees. The shallow green requires an accurate approach shot. Lay up to the right side for a go at birdie.

  • Hole 15

    Par 3

    Our signature par 3 is surrounded by sand. The large green makes for a generous target. A shot to the middle of the green is the safe play on this challenging hole.

  • Hole 16

    Par 4

    A long iron or fairway wood is all that is needed on this short par 4 to set up a short iron or wedge for your approach shot. Aim for the middle of this small, elevated, relatively flat green for a make-able putt.

  • Hole 17

    Par 4

    This long dogleg right is the first of two difficult holes. A drive favoring the right side will shorten the hole and long hitter may choose to cut the corner. Avoid the bunker short and right of the green. Pay attention to the pin location to avoid a difficult putt.

  • Hole 18

    Par 5

    Three shots are required to reach this tough finishing par 5. Tee shots should favor the left side, but big hitters can cut the corner. Lay up just short of the pond for an open look at this deep green. Check the pin location and give yourself a chance to finish with a birdie.
