Vicki Shivers - Tuesday, August 04, 2015

Love to golf? If so, you’ve come to the right place – Hilton Head Island, SC! Located at the Southernmost tip of South Carolina, (just 20 miles North of Savannah, Georgia), Hilton Head Island is one of the most popular golf destinations in the US. The island's primary appeal lies in the excellent year-round weather, top quality resort and hotel accommodations, as well as an abundance of beautifully maintained championship-caliber golf courses.

This area offers a variety of over 25 courses within a short-drive from any of the popular resort or hotel facilities on the Island. Hilton Head is also the host to the RBC Heritage Golf Classic which has been held at the same venue (Sea Pine's Harbourtown Golf Links) since its inception the late 1960's.

This lovely Island and it's nearby Beaufort Lowcountry area offer facilities designed by many of golf's pre-eminent architects (Pete Dye, Robert Trent Jones, Rees Jones, Arthur Hills, Tom Weiskopf & Jay Moorish, Robert Cupp, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Clyde Johnston, Davis Love III, Mark McCumber, etc.) with many courses included in both the World's top 100 as well as America's top 100 resort and public courses.

The Hilton Head area is definitely a must visit for any golf traveler looking for quality, variety as well as a memorable golf experience.
