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

Nice course in very good shape. I wouldn't exactly call this an "oceanfront course" though/ The ocean is only visible on one hole and it was just a "peek". Still, a pretty course with pleasant settings and a couple alligators,

I took my father in law to play this course. Decided to play the Oceanfront Course because of reviews I read previously. Course did not disappoint. It was in excellent condition and various tee box options allowed my father in law to play to his level. Th greens were among the best I have played. Fast, but true. Would definitely... More

The RTJ Ocean Course at Palmetto Dunes is a great place to play while on Hilton Head. The course is in great shape. Oceanfront is a bit of a stretch as there is one hole that plays out to the ocean. The carts have GPS which is a nice benefit.

One of my favorite courses to play of all time. Open, yet challenging, beautiful picture opportunities, maintained to perfection every year.
