Hilton Head Island is a world-class golf destination and the tournament has played host to some of the greatest names in golf. Golf legends like Nicklaus, Palmer, Tiger, and Greg Norman, as well as today’s top golfers from around the globe, have all been challenged by the fairways of the Harbour Town Golf Links.
The brainchild of the late Charles Fraser, developer of Sea Pines, the first Heritage Classic golf tournament was held in 1969 as a means of establishing Hilton Head Island as a household name. The tournament continues to take place at the Harbour Town Golf Links, which, at the time, was newly designed by course architect Pete Dye with assistance from legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus.
The RBC Heritage is so much more than a golf tournament. The party lasts through the week as 100,000 spectators line the greens to watch the world’s top golfers!
Thank you to all who attended this year's tournament. We look forward to celebrating again with you in 2019.
