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

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.

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

It was late in the afternoon on a Sunday. My last day on the Island celebrating my 30th anniversary. My wife graciously let me get 9 more holes in. I strode into the pro shop and asked if I could get out. No problem he says. I paid a reasonable price and went to get my clubs. Justin Robinson was... More

Would be a great hole for ladies or beginners as the black tees (maybe the childrens' tees) really have no obstacles. Only the 10th hole is oceanfront. A few other pretty holes, but nothing earth-shattering. Not a knockout. I rode with my husband and we were paired with a double. We were charged an additional $25 for my ride -... More

My wife and I took the 3 hour back to basics clinic with PGA instructor Doug Weaver. I have a 26 handicap and she's new to golf. Doug provided easy to follow instruction, recorded most of the lesson on our cell phones, was extremely patient and friendly. Overall, I highly recommend him as he was an excellent instructor who made... More

Just played the Robert Trent Jones course today, the course is in great shape from tee box to green. Selective pin placements can make the course a real challenge. Get yourself out there and bring your iron game.
