Real golfers. Real reviews.

Newman was great! Got my clubs looking real nice! Course is in immaculate condition
Played RTJ on 6/2/24. Course was in great shape and service by employees was excellent as well. Unfortunately, we had two foursomes that would join together at times that were right in front of us. They played the last hole all together and camped out on the side of the green after finishing. This same group threw clubs and cursed back and forth among groups. I was disappointed in spending 500 dollars to be a part of all of this. Pro-shop, can see this on gps and rangers can put an end to it. Eagerly awaiting a response from RTJ.
The Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Golf Course is a must play in the Hilton Head Island (HHI) area. The course is amazing, the staff and clubhouse are both awesome. The pace of play was really good. We played about 30 minutes less than the required finish time. The ocean views off the tenth hole are breathtaking. We will definitely be back to HHI to play this course again.
Course was in great shape. Greens well maintained. Staff amazing
Great course, great experience! RTJ palemtto dunes is a great choice for those who want a great golfing experience without spending >$400 for places like harbour town, sea pines, etc. The course was fun but challenging, and in excellent shape. On top of that, the staff was top notch - attentive, helpful, and polite.
