Golf at Hilton Head

Hilton Head Island boasts over 36 golf courses, all of which are truly outstanding. In recent years Hilton Head Island has become one of the most famous golf centers in the world, with over 1,000,000 rounds played each year. This largest concentration of superb golf courses in the world is what brings the PGA Tour to Hilton Head each year in April with the famed MCI Classic -- The Heritage of Golf -- at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Many new courses in the immediate Hilton Head area have opened in the past few years, each having its own unique layout for your golfing pleasure. The courses here have been designed by such outstanding golf architects as George Fazio, Robert Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus and Rees Jones, to name just a few.

There are three courses located conveniently within the Palmetto Dunes Resort area: The Robert Trent Jones course on the north side is an oceanfront classic. Wide open fairways and ample greens make it an enjoyable test for all skill levels. The first one built in Palmetto Dunes, this great course offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

With a series of long par-4s, the George Fazio course on the south side is both a demanding and exciting golf adventure. Once listed on Golf Digest's "America's 100 Best," this course demands a combination of long drives and precision play.

Palmetto Dunes' newest course, Arthur Hills, in the Leamington section, is one of the area's most distinctive layouts. This course is characterized by its continuous lines of dunes and thick stands of palmettos. It has a unique seaside character with no rough and few fairway bunkers, but water comes into play on ten of its holes, and wind is a constant hazard in its own right.
