6 rounds in 3 days. Plenty of water but too much sand for my taste

The Jones course is a nice track. Well maintained. Lots of fun holes. Lots of water to work around. LOTS of sand traps to negotiate. Plenty of tee box choices for all... read more

I was one of the participants in a golf program arranged by the Road Scholar organization (Tees and Greens: Intermediate Golf at Hilton Head.) The Robert Trent Jones course was the location for the golf academy headed by the congenial Director of Instruction Doug Weaver and his teaching staff, Ed Brill, Tim Ashley and Edward Sires. Mornings were spent with... More

Was very pleased with the course conditions and the golf course. The wind made some of the holes challenging, but the layout was unique and fair. Favorite hole was the par 5 10th that finishes and pitch shot from the beach and the Atlantic Ocean, great backdrop for a golf hole. Staff was friendly and very attentive. Would definitely go...

Robert Trent Jones is one of the best courses to play in Hilton Head! Great layout and the 10th hole goes right to the ocean. BUT, the staff that works at RTJ is out of this world. The staff's only concern is that you have a good time golfing. So friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about them. They... More

The Jones course is a nice track. Well maintained. Lots of fun holes. Lots of water to work around. LOTS of sand traps to negotiate. Plenty of tee box choices for all skill levels. Plenty of homes along the fairway but many set well back, often on the other side of a canal. We are a group of high handicap... More

Played on 2/6/17. Course and greens were in great shape. Course plays much more difficult from the blue tees so pick your tees carefully. Staff is friendly and courteous. Some of the holes have breathtaking views. I played late in the day and moved along nicely. 3 hour round.

This is my favorite course on the island. It is a good challenge for the low handicapper and very playable for the high handicapper. Also I have never had a real slow round here but I'm not there during high season. Good discount for military and military retirees.

I recently played the Robert Trent Jones course with some buddies. I can't say enough about the customer service aspect of their operation. Once you pull you're greeted by a smiling face.. a young man named Jordan greeted us with a smile and directed us and help us get all our bags together. We went and check in. The golf... More

We played 18 holes in January. It was a beautiful sunny 70 degree day, the staff was helpful and friendly and the course was in amazing shape. We weren't sure what to expect since the hurricane in the fall did so much damage to Hilton Head. We went ahead with our plans and were impressed with how quickly this golf... More
