Palmetto Dunes-Jones


Designed by venerable golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, this is one you don't want to miss at Hilton Head.  Readers of Golfweek Magazine have ranked it among the best in the Southeast. One of the classic works of the legendary designer, the Jones offers well-trapped greens and generous landing areas - with a lagoon system winding its way through 11 of the 18 holes. The signature hole, the par-5 10th, brings you to a spectacular view of the Atlantic . . . one of the few official short courses in the Southeast.

This is the oldest course at Palmetto Dunes and is a long-time favorite on the island. This facility features an extensive lagoon system which winds through the course impacting play on eleven holes. Add some of Jones' seemingly patented bunkers and large, well-bunkered greens and you've got plenty of good golf ahead of you here.

This Palmetto Dunes Resort course is well-known for its many views of the ocean. The finest is found at the 10th hole, a par-5 on the card of 540 yards. Its green is set out by the ocean, and it takes three good shots to reach it when the wind is blowing in your face.
