HILTON HEAD ISLAND

United States, South Carolina

HILTON HEAD ISLAND

Although Hilton Head Island is only 12 miles by five miles wide, it boasts more than 250 restaurants and more than 20 championship courses, earning it the nickname “Golf Island.” Hilton Head is a well known destination among golfers from all over the world, boasting layouts crafted by course-design legends including Robert Trent Jones Sr., Pete Dye, and Jack Nicklaus.

Put your game to the ultimate test at Harbour Town Golf Links at The Sea Pines Resort. It is both the crowning achievement of famed designer Pete Dye and design consultant Jack Nicklaus, and a perennial favorite among PGA TOUR players, as it places a premium on finesse, imagination and shot making, rather than strength. Featuring a collection of par threes ranked amongst the world’s finest and a par-4 18th hole considered one of the most feared in all of golf.

Arthur Hills took full advantage of the Lowcountry’s dramatic coastal beauty when he designed this award-winning course at Palmetto Dunes. Tucked within the serene enclave of Leamington, this shot-maker’s favorite offers continuous lines of dunes, a rolling layout, numerous water hazards and thick stands of palmettos. This course emphasizes accuracy and precision over distance, providing formidable challenges at every turn. The picture-perfect setting of this mature course stands apart as a time-honored favorite with golfers and attracts dozens of species of birds as well as alligators and deer. In addition, the course is home to one of the Lowcountry’s most historic lighthouses, the Hilton Head Range Light Station, which guided ships into Port Royal Sound beginning in the late 1800’s. The Hills course offers off-balance lies and ocean breezes as well as an extensive network of lagoons winding through 10 different holes. This popular layout has earned a much-deserved reputation as one the island’s best golf experiences. For precision play and natural beauty, this layout simply can’t be beat.

Named South Carolina’s Golf Course of the Year, the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course is widely renowned for its open, inviting layout and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. A true pinnacle of design, this golf course appeals to novices as well as experienced players.

The most wide open of the three Palmetto Dunes layouts, the Jones golf course changes with the breezes rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean, making every hole play differently whenever the winds change.
