Hilton Head Island Golf

If you are planning a golf getaway, Hilton Head Island rivals any golf destination in the United States. Golf Digest recently ranked Hilton Head Island as the #9 Best Golf Trip Destination. Links Magazine designates Hilton Head as a Top 10 Golf Island in the World.

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is less than an hour drive from Savannah, Georgia. With over 30 golf courses located around the island, golf enthusiasts will find challenging and beautiful courses at every turn. Every corner of the island offers championship golf courses designed by legendary architects Robert Trent Jones Sr., Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus and George Fazio.

Regardless of where you decide to stay, lodging on the island will complement your golf vacation. Accommodations range from locally owned hotels, private resorts, vacation homes and villa rentals. Enjoy a family-friendly atmosphere at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort and Hilton Head Condo Rentals. Of course, Hilton Head offers unbelievable food with traditional casual fare, fresh seafood and elegant dining throughout the island.

The island offers some of the finest private, and public courses found anywhere, highlighted by Palmetto Dunes and Harbour Town Golf Links. Harbour Town is one of the best courses in the world, according to Golf Digest, Golfweek and Travel & Leisure. Harbour Town is #9 on Golfweek’s “Top Golf Courses You Can Play” and #18 on Golf Magazine’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses.” Palmetto Dunes is another local favorite that is on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Best Courses.” Travel & Leisure places Palmetto Dunes in their “World’s Best Golf Resort” category.

Hilton Head is a golf Mecca with 17 public golf courses on the island. Several courses run along the ocean and provide an unforgettable golf experience. May River at Palmetto Bluff is a Jack Nicklaus design that ranks 51 on Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play. Heron Point is another favorite, formerly known as Sea Marsh. Heron Point is the second oldest club on the island, however; Pete Dye redesigned the layout in 2007 making it one of the most enjoyable courses you can play.

Off Island Golf Courses

Some of the best courses in the state are just a short drive over the bridge from Hilton Head Island. Design your trip to include favorites such as Hilton Head National, Crescent Point and Eagles Pointe. Hilton Head National is one of the most popular facilities near the island. Gary Player and Bobby Weed designed this 27-hole local favorite.

PGA Tour Golf

Since 1969, the PGA Tour has made a stop on Hilton Head Island at Harbour Town Golf Links. Designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye, Harbour Town Golf Links is the most famous golf course on Hilton Head Island. The course is challenging to all players, and the world famous 18th hole that runs along the Calibogue Sound with the iconic red and white lighthouse in the distance is a great finish to the round. Although the event has changed sponsors several times, the tournament is currently known as the RBC Heritage and played the week after the Masters.
