Tee Off on National Golf Lovers Day in Hilton Head Island
Where is the best place to go to celebrate National Golf Lovers Day on October 4?
With a sub-tropical climate and 33 world-class golf courses featuring lush fairways, Hilton Head Island is the perfect destination for a golf getaway anytime throughout the year. See below for some of Hilton Head Island’s most unique courses that invites players to putt a birdie like a pro:
- Harbour Town Golf Links at Sea Pines:
- This championship course plays host to the annual PGA Tour RBC Heritage every spring. A favorite among PGA Tour players, the 18-hole course is the crowning achievement of famed designer Pete Dye and design consultant Jack Nicklaus. Golfers will end the day teeing up at the 18th hole, which overlooks Hilton Head Island’s iconic candy-striped lighthouse.
- Robert Trent Jones Course:
- With stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean running alongside the length of the course, Robert Trent Jones Course at Palmetto Dunes Ocean Front Resort highlights the best of the Lowcountry. The shifting winds will challenge every level of golfer, but no reward is greater than the ocean view from the elevated greens of the 10th hole.
- Atlantic Dunes at Sea Pines:Five-time RBC Heritage winner Davis Love III helped to modernize the 7,010-yard course to frame scenic corridors, incorporating the Island’s surrounding beachfront and seaside grass. While the front nine stretches parallel to the ocean, the back nine runs out towards the beach – greeting players with a calming sea breeze all throughout the course.
Before cooling down with a bike ride on the 12+ miles on the sun-soaked beaches, golfers looking to refuel following 18-holes can experience the flavors of the lowcountry at one of the 250+ restaurants on the Island, including local favorite Hudson’s on the Dock, featuring fresh-caught seafood from the docks to the tables.
