I took my two son-in-laws to the weekly Doug Weaver demo and tips last Monday afternoon. Doug is a seasoned pro and knows how to connect with his customers and to focus on the individual improvement. By the end of the week we all had taken lessons including a group lesson for our foursome. Immediate results were experienced with Doug's... More

Took a three hour golf instruction course with Doug Wever. Doug's insight and easy to remember routine had me hitting better within an hour. The other two hours were a huge bonus. He was without a doubt the best money I'd spent on the island. He had me hitting so well by the end of class I had to hug... More

I recently played golf with my brother-in-law and niece at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course at Palmetto Dunes (Hilton Head Island). The course was in great shape and the greens where in amazing condition. We finish our round in exactly 4 hours. Every employee there was very personable (club house, grill, starter, marshal's). When we ended our round Justin... More

Recently made a trip to Palmetto Dunes and played the George Fazio and Robert Trent Jones Course. The George Fazio course was in good shape but greens were rather slow, service was ok nothing special and the merchandise was lacking. The Robert Trent Jones course is head and shoulders above the George Fazio in terms from shape of course, playability,... More

Recently played this course with my daughter, son and grandson. The course was in excellent shape and the service was also excellent both in the pro shop and on the course. We rented clubs and were issued new TaylorMade irons and woods. The afternoon rate is reasonable ($70).

I took 6 hours of golf lessons with Doug Weaver over the course of the week - money well spent! Great facility and friendly staff at all three courses which I also played (Trent Jones, Arthur Hills and Fazio). Arthur Hills was in worse condition and the staff was very upfront about current conditions of greens, etc. Overall, not actually... More

Let me start by saying the Fazio course is in excellent condition. Good fairways and greens -- helpful and pleasant staff. I'm actually writing this review in hopes that the management will read it as I am on a mission for women's golf. I have been playing this game for over 40 years. Now approaching my 70th birthday I still... More

The best group lesson I've ever had was the "Back to Basics" lesson given at Palmetto Dunes by head golf professional Doug Weaver. He breaks the golf swing down to simple basics and you leave with a whole new outlook on the game. "Fourteen clubs, one swing!" He also gives great individual lessons as well. Highly recommended for any level... More

Really good course in horrible condition. Greens had been aerated two weeks before and should have been recovered. Not too bad but tees were bare and fairways had huge bare spots. Everyone has bad days but don't charge premium prices for mediocre conditions. PD should be ashamed.

We made tee time for afternoon play (because of pricing). At no time while making the tee time did anyone inform us that the greens were recently airated or that the fare-ways were just fertilized. For a resort course this was the worst experience of my life time of golf. It seemed like we were hitting off hard pan all... More

Hello, Gene. I offer my sincere apologies for your disappointing golf experience. We understand that there are a variety of other courses available, and strive to provide outstanding facilities for our golfers. We aerate twice each summer, and it is standard for each of the courses to post a statement on their front doors during those times, alerting guests to... More
