Golf Range Powered by Toptracer Range

Guests can experience interactive golf entertainment at the Toptracer Range located at the Robert Trent Jones course.

At the practice facility, the main focus remains meeting the needs of golfers on the tee sheet to warm up before their round. The Toptracer Range technology will only be activated when golfers opt in and pay the additional fee for that service.

Real golfers. Real reviews.

I just want to preface this by saying this course is great and you should definitely play it if you have the chance. The reason I can’t give it a full five stars though is we were behind a group that was on the slower side that made us wait for virtually every shot that we’d hoped a ranger would maybe ask to speed up but instead we found him just sitting and lounging on the 11th tee box when he should be driving around. Other then that though course was in great shape all around and I definitely would recommend it. The employees at the front and the lady on the 6th hole for the charity giveaway were also very kind and informative. I will almost certainly be back here if I return to Hilton Head in the future.
Don't Miss Robert Trent Jones Course! Played 51 holes this past Saturday. Kudos to the RTJ staff / greenskeepers / Big Jims staff. My group loved the course - it was in fantastic shape and EVERYTHING a golfer could want was available. We did AM round, lunch at Big Jims, PM replay round into an additional 6pm replay (we quit just before 9pm)

Special shout out to Casey for all of his help! Great customer service and very personable. Give that man a raise!

Couple notes if you're going:
1) Cans of beer at Big Jims were buy 5, get 1 free - definitely a good plan for filling coolers
2) BBQ Chicken Pizza at Big Jims (lunch / dinner)
3) Very generous drop zones when you end up in the water
4) If you're staying at Omni, best bet is the shuttle service back and forth - no need for a car.
5) Bring extra balls - even the strongest golfers in our group lost a bunch
6) Enjoy!
Played course on 6/4/22 and it was in solid shape all around. Overall this course seems to be in very good condition right now, despite the heat. Fairways and greens are both very good and the overall layout, along with the ocean holes really puts this course on another level. The staff were also very kind and the driving range is incredible with technology built into every station. (also a server comes through the range asking if you want beverages.) Definitely plan to come back again.
Great time good golf Took lesson with one the course pros Doug Weaver made big difference in golf game really improved game off tee and with irons
Good course for female golfers As an average female golfer, I was leery as to which golf course would be suitable for me. All of the websites seem to cater to the male golfer which was very disappointing. Since I was staying in Villamare at Palmetto Dunes I was directed to the RTJ course. It was perfect and I did not feel overwhelmed at all, in fact I met the challenge and got a birdie on hole 17. Also, as a single I needed to be paired up with other players, which I assumed would be men. The men I was paired with were very nice and friendly. The entire staff at the course was outstanding and made me feel comfortable and welcome. Shout out to Susan who was very helpful. The cost to play here did seem a bit overpriced. I'm not sure it was a $200 a round course even though it was beautiful. Also, I would like to see the website be more encouraging for female golfers.
