Nice layout, most holes had some character. Very scenic, my wife and loved the scenery. Fairways in decent shape, but that was it. Traps only had a little sand, rough was mostly Hardpan. Greens were very, very poor, some almost unputtable. They had a special the day we played, $28 a person - that was a fair price for the... More

Grass wasn't green and I'm not fond of playing golf in people's backyards but otherwise a nice day out with reasonable green fees.

I have played Fuzzies Island West on previos occasions. It did not appear to be in as good condition as I remeber but it was still a very good opening round on my recent Hilton Head Island. Typically ...less expensive and a friendly starter course to get back in the swing of things. I always enjoy an early season round... More

Course was in horrible shape. No ranger out which contributed to a extremely long round. And to top it off the guy cleaning clubs just three our clubs in the back of the car with out closing them. Obvious he is only there for free rounds. My husband and I will never play here again!!

On June 22 the course was in very good shape, except for the greens that are in very bad shape because of some disease.

Reduced prices due to dirt greens. I always enjoy Island West, but the greens are in horrible shape.

Not in real good shape. Greens are terrible and are completely brown and dead grass. Rates are cheap but you understand why. But still the worst day on a course is still better than the best day at work

Good value - Nice course - about a 25 minute drive from Hilton Head Island but the green fees are significantly less than on Hilton Head. so it's worth the drive.

I've played Island West a few times when visiting and usually it's a good value. It has challenging holes but this March the greens are a mess. Hard as a rock and bumpy and patchy would be a good descripion. There are many better options in the area at a reasonable price. Look elsewhere until greens are fixed.
