Robert Trent Jones at Palmetto Dunes Golf Course

An absolute epitome of golf course architecture, this golf course caters to both novices and talented players. Home to one of only two beachfront holes on Hilton Head Island, this beloved course offers vast fairways, enormous greens, challenging bunkers, and subtle elevation changesPlaying the course from the medal tees is friendly 6,122 yards, but if you’d like to take the longer test then the championship tees extend the course to just over 7,000 yards, but irrespective of the yardage, the course is for you.

Palmetto Dunes Robert Trent Jones Golf Review

The tree-lined course is pure Jones: Calm and comfortable where good shots are rewarded, and bad ones are punished – just not too much compared with some other Hilton Head layouts. “The championship tee with a slope of 133 accurately depicts what you’ll face — a mid-level golf course that sets up well for some good scoring opportunities, but will also leave you with high numbers if you’re not careful. With just a few forced carries, the RTJ Course is one where a good golfer can thrive, and a not-so-good golfer will at least have the benefit of as pleasant a course as they are ever likely to play.

The signature hole of the Jones course, the 10th par-five, offers breathtaking ocean views. This straightaway par five signature hole is generally played into the prevailing wind. It’s going to take three solid shots to meet the green.

Make sure to grab a refreshment in the Grill bar after, kick back with a tasty burger and an ice-cold beer after your round.

We recommend staying at the Sea Pines Resort and pairing your golf with a round on the stunning Harbour Town Golf Links.
