Hilton Head

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. Palmetto Dunes is arguably Hilton Head's most popular golf destination. The oceanfront resort boasts three championship golf courses, including a George Fazio design that is ranked as one of America's top 100 courses. It's considered the island's most challenging round and oddly enough also has the distinction of being Hilton Head's only par-70 course. Sea Pines was the island's first resort and its Harbour Town Golf Links is still home to the RBC Heritage, South Carolina's only PGA Tour event. Sea Pines also offers the Ocean Course, which boasts one of only two oceanfront holes on the island, and the notorious Heron Point Course. This Pete Dye design is considered a must-play of any Hilton Head golf vacation.
