By Brian Weis
Whether you have played a course 20+ times a year or looking to play the course for the first time, insights from an insider can help enhance your golf experience. Below is an interview with Jeremy Cadorette who shares some valuable tidbits about the course, memorable holes and must eats and treats at the 19th.
Give Our Readers An Overview of the Golf Course/Property
Robber's Row was originally designed by George Cobb, who designed the Barony Course at the Club, and opened in 1967. In 1994, Pete Dye made renovations to the course. The Robber's Row course lies on Civil War grounds and even features markers noting different historical events that are relevant to the area. Lovely oak trees and magnolias give the course beauty and character.
If Someone Was Looking To Golf In The Area, Why Should They Play Your Course?
Robber's Row stands out among the great courses on Hilton Head Island for three reasons: The course's architecture, a close brush with Civil War history, and excellent service. You won't hit the same shot twice and you'll have to think your way around all 18 holes.
What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
Robber's Row golf course is diverse. There is no pattern to the holes and no consistency in length, so take each hole as it comes. What that means is standing on the tee, surveying the hole and formulating a plan. Rarely does that mean grabbing the driver and blasting away.
Recent Awards or What You Are Most Proud About The Course?
Robber's Row stands out among the great courses on Hilton Head Island for three reasons: The course's architecture, a close brush with Civil War history, and excellent service.
What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
This would be the 18th hole. It is a tricky par 5 with a huge dog leg right and a green heavenly guarded by water and sand. As you are approaching the green there is a great photo opportunity of our beautiful Clubhouse.
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
The 15th hole. It's a reachable par 5 that offers a birdie opportunity. There is a beautiful marsh view from the tee box. 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.
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
Our Chef always has some great daily specials. Some other great menu items are the Elvis Fried Chicken Salad, Heritage Burger and the Grilled Asparagus Sandwich.
