The Golf Island
Golf has been part of life on Hilton Head Island since 1962. Today, Hilton Head Island is home to more than 33 championship courses, both public and private, designed by renowned golf architects like 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 balmy weather. 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.
