Hilton Head Island Golf Courses
Golf has been part of life on Hilton Head Island since some of the first major developments on the island beginning in 1962. Today, Hilton Head Island is home to dozens of courses ranging from “very good” to “championship” and while many are private, public access is available on quite a few.
Now, at the Hilton Head Directory, we try to take care of everybody, but as locals, we do know a lot about the golf courses on the island. In fact, nearly everyone here plays at some level, but what a great environment to be able to pick up the sticks and go for “a good walk spoiled.”
As if that wasn’t enough, the names of the folks who designed these courses read like a “who’s-who” of golf course architects – Robert Trent Jones Sr., Pete Dye, and Jack Nicklaus.
Golfers of all skill levels can enjoy exciting golf experiences including oceanfront courses, traditional parkland courses, and more, all played with a delightful side of Southern hospitality and year-round enjoyable weather.
It’s March, now. The Heritage will be here next month, and the cool mornings are giving way to warm, sunny days. Azaleas and Daffodils are beginning to bloom, and, for the real golf fans, we know Augusta isn’t far away.
It’s not surprising that Hilton Head Island has been voted the #10 golf destination in the world by Golf Digest readers. In addition to being a fantastic place to play, Hilton Head Island also hosts some of the golf world’s top events. The Island is a PGA TOUR event destination as well as the host of the annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.
