I just played this course yesterday and have to say wow. This is one of the toughest courses I have played and I have played a lot. This is not a course that you can attack straight off the tee due to the numerous water features. Crush a drive that you think is perfect and you might find out you... More

Had a greatly anticipated day at Atlantic Dunes but were totally underwhelmed. We played courses at half the price that were twice as good. They had a dress policy (no shorts/skirts more than 4 inches above the knee)...really? Ever heard about courses that permit walking and bike riding right through your game and the people walking/riding can wear anything??? We... More

A course even a higher handicapper can play and beautiful to boot! We had the late day tee time (3:27). Not sure where the other folks on the tee sheet went to, but we essentially had the course to ourselves. This course was closed the last few times we've been to Hilton Head. I would gladly play this course again.... More

If you come to HHI for golf and have ever played the old Ocean Course at Sea Pines, it has been completely made over and is now Atlantic Dunes. Do yourself a favor and play this course......one of the best.

Recent upgrade of course with pleasant staff in club house and pro shop. It is challenging but on my bucket lists for a return game.

I never played the previous course, but great layout, great club house, outstanding service! Very challenging track, with a lot of holes required to be in the right place on the fairway to reach the green! Unfortunately, a little beat up because of hurricane Matthew in the fall, but not bad enough not to play!

Upon entering the bag drop area, we were pleasantly greeted by Dan and Alex who seemed excited to help us. The check in, with Club Pro, Bobby Downs, was also extraordinary. He not only welcomed us with enthusiasm but also explained all the amenities of the club house, driving range and facilities. The course is utterly fabulous. The fairways are... More

Really nice course but getting on or near the green doesn't mean much, that's when it gets tough. Better have your A pitching/flop/chipping game. To two putt every green would be a great accomplishment. Would definitely play again but would probably putt from anywhere that is 10 foot off the green, I chipped too many to the green to have...

Played the new Atlantic dunes course what a fantastic course. We have played Ocean in the past and always enjoyed playing it. The restructure has made it a bit more challenging but well done
