Golf on Hilton Head Island: The George Fazio Course at the Palmetto Dunes Resort

Vicki Shivers - Thursday, January 07, 2016

”FazioDesigned by one of America's most respected golf architects, the George Fazio Course, located in the beautiful Palmetto Dunes Resort, is ranked among the “Top 100 Courses in the US.” It was also named the 2014 South Carolina Golf Course of the Year by the SC Golf Course Owners Association. This unique course is considered to be the most challenging course on Hilton Head Island and is also the only par 70 course in the area.


The Fazio course at this world class golf resort is exceptional, challenging, and provides a beautiful natural setting that only a Hilton Head Lowcountry course offer. To conquer this course, you have to be on your long and short game for sure. You must have a precise shot to endure the par-70 18 holes with its teasing bunkers and daunting water hazards.

Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort upgraded the grass on the award winning George Fazio Golf Course in January 2010.


The TifDwarf Bermudagrass was replaced with a state-of-the-art Diamond Zoysia grass, which promotes superior and consistent year-round playing conditions for golfers. The new grass provides a more consistent experience across the 18 holes and 1 practice green, year-round.


In addition to the George Fazio Course, there are also 2 other excellent courses located at the Palmetto Dunes Golf Club, the Arthur Hills Course, and the Robert Trent Jones Course. Try to play all 2 during your next visit to Hilton Head Island!
