Planning The Perfect Hilton Head Golf Vacation

Jun 28, 2008
A Hilton Head golf vacation is a great way to relax, rejuvenate, and hone your golfing skills. Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the country, and this article will provide some information about golf tournaments and courses on the island, to help you plan your next vacation.

One the most well known golf courses on the island is Harbour Town Golf Links, home to the MCI Classic, one of the top events on the PGA Tour. Recently given the ranking of the 57th best course in the world by Golf Digest, Harbour Town is also bordered by the famous Harbour Town lighthouse and the neighboring marina features shops, fine dining, and other entertainment opportunities.

Sea Pines Ocean Course is among the oldest golf courses in the area, and was renovated in 1996 by PGA Pro Architect Mark Mccumber and features a signature oceanfront 15th hole with panoramic views of the water, as well as several lagoons and bunkers. This course is also one of two courses that are Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary courses within the Sea Pines resort.

Palmetto Dunes boasts an extensive lagoon system and bunkered greens. This Hilton Head golf course is famous for its ocean views, particularly those from the tenth hole of the Robert Trent Jones course. The George Fazio course is considered to be one of the most challenging courses on the island, and is the only par 70. The Arthur Hills course is also both beautiful and challenging in its own right, and provides many opportunities for off balance lies.

Another popular island course spot is the Daufuskie Island Resort, which is home to two signature courses that re accessible only by boat from Hilton Head. Bloody Point, a Parkland style golf course, borders the ocean, marshes, and rivers on many of its holes. The second course, Melrose, is a Jack Nicklaus designed course featuring many ocean front finishing holes.

These are just some of the many Hilton Head golf courses that visitors can choose from. Some people refer to Hilton Head as the golf island, due to the abundance of courses and golfing opportunities and the year round perfect weather. Just make sure to make your reservations early, as the popular hotels and rentals book quickly, particularly during the peak season, and when you are planning your next visit the area, be sure to bring your golf clubs with you.
