Hilton Head’s mild climate, appealing natural surroundings, and careful development predetermined that this area would become one of this country’s most popular golf destinations.
Maritime forests, tidal marshes, and sandy beaches are the backdrop to 26 on-island golf courses laid out by some of the industry’s greatest course designers, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Davis Love III, Pete Dye, and Robert Trent Jones. In addition, within an hour, there are an additional 40 courses in Bluffton, Beaufort, Savannah, and on Daufuskie Island.
Golf Digest and Golf magazines have continually rated a number of the area’s courses high on their ‘Best Of’ lists.
Your choices are endless. You can play anything from a nine-hole executive course to the world famous Harbour Town Golf Links in the Sea Pines Resort where the RBC Heritage is played every April. The Hilton Head Celebrity Golf Tournament is played every Labor Day Weekend on three area courses to help raise funds for local children’s charities.
Hilton Head is also a year around center of golf schools for all ages and all abilities. Top teaching professionals use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to help improve your swing and your game.
New to Hilton Head is The Legacy of Golf Shop and Museum, located in the Shops at Sea Pines on Lighthouse Road. Here you will find collectables from generations of American golf, including vintage clubs, equipment, apparel, and paintings by golf artist Linda Hartough. They even have a never-before-seen home movie of Charles Fraser, Sea Pines founder, awarding Arnold Palmer the Heritage’s first trophy.
