I recently played the Robert Trent Jones course with some buddies. I can't say enough about the customer service aspect of their operation. Once you pull you're greeted by a smiling face.. a young man named Jordan greeted us with a smile and directed us and help us get all our bags together. We went and check in. The golf... More

We played 18 holes in January. It was a beautiful sunny 70 degree day, the staff was helpful and friendly and the course was in amazing shape. We weren't sure what to expect since the hurricane in the fall did so much damage to Hilton Head. We went ahead with our plans and were impressed with how quickly this golf... More

If you really want a GREAT golfing experience, look no further than the RTJ Golf Course in Plametto Dunes. I know there are numerous choices for golf on Hilton Head Island, but RTJ is a course I could play everyday. Challenging, yet fair. Great views of the Atlantic Ocean. The rates during the winter months for the quality of play,... More

We have been coming down to Hilton Head for a few years now and, after having tried a few different places, always stay in Palmetto Dunes. One of the reasons is the Robert Trent Jones Course. Our family includes golfers at a variety levels and the course works well for all of us. It is kept in immaculate condition and... More

We thought this golf course was lovely and well maintained - the 10th hole leading out to an oceanfront view from the green is spectacular. We enjoyed the course so much that we played it twice during our one week's vacation in Hilton Head. The starter, Dave McDonald, who is an author, was very personable.

Went golfing as a spur of the moment thing, the clubs we rented were old and way over priced. Course is nice.

My wife, in-laws and I played the RTJ course a few days before Hurricane Matthew came through. It is a beautifully maintained course and two of us enjoyed using the golf bicycles they have available. With the weather cooling down, I can highly recommend the experience. The course is challenging, but plays fair. It is a links course, but they... More

Fabulous setting with great greens and views Made more enjoyable as we were teamed up with two very nice gentlemen, Joe and Allen. Cart path only on day we played as there had been 2 inches of rain previous night
