Overview
More
Shipyard Golf Club offers three nine hole courses, which can be played in three eighteen hole combinations. Each course has its own merits and difficulties, with 25 water hazards coming into play throughout the majority of the holes.Clipper Course: With plenty of sand and water hazards, the Clipper course may be the most difficult of the nines. This George W. Cobb design requires a good long game and a soft touch around the greens.Galleon Course: These original nine holes of Shipyard Golf Club meander through large oaks and tall pines. Accurate placement of approach shots into heavily guarded greens is necessary on the Galleon course.Brigantine Course:Alligators sun themselves along these scenic, water hazard filled nine holes of the Brigantine course. With slight dog-legs and well-placed bunkers, this course requires shot-making and a good short game.

Played here during a business trips a few weeks ago. Course was in pretty good shape. Greens were a little spongy but other than that most of the course was very playable. Good design.

I played on June 6. The tee boxes on the front nine (clipper?) were uneven and worn. It was hard to find a flat lie that wasn't chewed up. Little did I know that they were better than the tees on the back nine (Galleon?)...More
