Spent a near perfect day on this course. The tees and fairways are in nice shape and are well maintained. The staff was professional and beyond helpful. Played with my usual foursome and we all agreed that it was one of the nicest courses we've played in while. All around great experience.

This is a really nice course. It is well maintained. The course goes along the ocean and its layout is fair. The staff is pleasant. The clubhouse is beautiful. It is a bit pricey but it's worth it as far as HHI golf goes. We will play it again!!!

Their web page is brilliantly deceptive and I like many was expecting water water everywhere. They space groups at 8 minutes which led to the single biggest stoppage of play I've ever experienced. There were 4 foursomes waiting on a Par 3, with 2 foursomes ahead and 2 more coming up fast from behind. I didn't play well so the... More

I have been playing winter golf in Hilton Head for the past 13 years and although I have the option of playing golf on a nearby course for only a cart fee my choice for serious golf on the island is the Jones course at Palmetto Dunes. The entire staff treats you like a member through out your round (Derek... More

As a resident of HHI, I've played RTJ a handful of times. The course was always in great shape, the holes are very challenging, views are beautiful, and the staff was very courteous. I look forward to the next time I have the opportunity to play.

Although the weather was rather cold (40 degrees to start), the staff, from the grill to the pro shop and the outside staff were great. The layout is very playable for a novice golfer yet is challenging for a more experienced golfer. The course is beautiful to look at and play. I would definitely play again.

The course was playing cart path only (new grass seedlings) the two days we played there. Wish we had known that ahead of time and we would have brought our hand-carts and just simply walked the course. The bunker placements are just brutal here -- and lots of gigantic ones! I had more shots from traps here than anywhere else... More

Played this course on October 25 2014. Starter must have been having a real bad morning. Starting on the second hole we had to wait on every shot. Group behind us hit into us on several occasions and we asked the ranger to put a stop to it. Don't think he said a word to them. On hole 11 tee... More
