Booked a tee time online and enjoyed every minute of my experience. Great course, great service, great greens, and the pace was good. Number 10 is a treat but back 9 is a beast if the wind is blowing!! Would definitely come back to play again.

The greens were perfect, the fairways were perfect, no waiting at all. The course offers challenges to shoot par for all skill levels without being overly difficult. GPS in the cart helps speed play. Gorgeous views and not just on #10 the Ocean hole. My favorite of the Palmetto Dunes Courses.

I am a member of a local athletic club and we had the opportunity to invite Doug to make a presentation to our membership. He provided an informative session on golf including a meaningful approach to the game and the manner in which it is to be enjoyed and appreciated. His personality is perfect for a teacher of the game.... More

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.

Nice track but nothing really too special. Always in decent shape, friendly and helpful staff. Holes 8-14 are good with nice ocean views on 10 green, 11 tee. Plethora of ball marks only real negative.
