The Golf Club at Berkeley Hall offers three world-class — and quite unique — touchpoints for comparison in its approach: Winged Foot, Seminole, and Riviera. Well then! Tom Fazio must have felt some incredible pressure when constructing two 18-hole loops for the project, the North and the South.

Located inland from the golf destination of Hilton Head, the course roams about lowland marshes, which provide ample ammo for Fazio to challenge the best players. Although the fauna seen throughout the round will be quite entertaining, one thing that players will not see is housing. Although Berkeley Hall is the centerpiece of a residential development, one thing it shares in common with all of the aspirational clubs listed above is that homes won’t be seen during a round.

There’s little natural land movement in these coastal regions but Fazio uses his means to create more intriguing terrain around his green complexes, including No. 8, a short par three with a significant drop-off for those who attack the peninsular green and miss.

Average Reviewers Score:
Description: There’s quite a bit of elevation change encountered during a round on the North course at Berkeley Hall, which is not the sort of playing characteristic normally associated with golfing close to the south east coast. Rating: 4 out of 10 Reviews: 1

I took liberty to duplicate some of my comments from the South here. As an area resident, Berkeley Hall is an interesting development. Fazio designed (For the same developer as Belfair's 36 diverse and memorable holes and the Nicklaus portion of Colleton River Club) 36 holes of so-called "Core" golf. That is taken to mean contiguous property for a course without housing interspersed. Let's say - old school golf course. That almost happens, but I have also found it entertaining that moats were constructed such that building lots overlook the course but do not front it.

There are a few holes here that stand out a little, more earth was moved to create drama, but as with the South, the architecture is secondary to a perfect playing surface. It is enjoyable to play here, but not memorable.

Again, given the blandness of design here - I am confused as to the mention of Seminole, Winged Foot and the magnificent Riviera in this site's forward/introduction to this course. Someone please explain.

If fairness with superb conditioning is for you than BH is your place. I find this North layout more interesting and memorable than the South.
