From check in to check out-this resort makes the passionate golfer feel at home. I can't wait to come back and play again

Played the Fazio course this year with my son and 2 son-in laws. Have played Robert Trent Jones in the past several times. Enjoy Fazio because I can hit my driver on more tee shots than Jones. Jones however is more scenic. Pro shop staff are very friendly and helpful.

Doug Weaver is a great instructor! I recently took two 2-hr lessons from Doug - at Arthur Hills and Robert Trent Jones. I needed to reset my fundamentals after seeing my average score rise from 85 to 91 in the last 12 months. I felt like I had my own couple days in Utopia, working on slowing things down -... More

I have played both the Robert Trent Jones and the Hills courses and I absolutely love the hills course. Both the course and the employees are perfect at hills and way short of perfect at the Jones course. Perhaps the Jones course could give their staff lessons. A golfer who is handicapped should not be made to feel inadequate when... More

Excellent instructor. Highly recommend for anyone wanting any type of lesson. My high school age sister Holly who plays on the varsity high school golf team took an hour chipping and putting lesson from him and it was the best lesson she has ever had! His instruction will likely take 5-10 strokes off her rounds.

Have been going to HHI for over thirty years and play the Palmetto Dunes Courses every year. The Arthur Hills course is the most challenging but it wasn't in great shape this summer. It has some really challenging holes and is a very nice looking course. George Fazio is the most forgiving course but with sand traps and dog legs... More

Played the Robert Trent jones course while on vacation. While the greens fees were fairly steep, the course was in great shape, and this is one of the premier courses on the island. Friendly staff, good pace of play. Challenging course, but fair.

I get to Hilton Head every couple of years and stay at Palmetto Dunes. There are 3 courses to choose from there. And if you want to improve your game (who doesn't?) there are a number of instruction options. Doug Weaver, Director of Golf at PD, usually has a free clinic at the Robert Trent Jones driving range on Monday... More

The courses are somewhat plain vanilla layouts. Villas/homes line many of the fairways. There are a couple of notable holes on each. The fairways and bunkers are well kept. The greens are generally OK and putt very slowly at they are Bermuda. Lagoons add to the trouble that can be found along with winds at times. The Jones course has... More

We're regular travelers to HHI, and keen golfers, just not very good ones. My wife and I can both score in the 90's but are likely to stay high handicappers. Just the same, we often like to take lessons and strive to improve. We had a series of lessons with Doug on our last trip, and he's probably the best... More
