By Hilton Head Insider

You’ve made the trip to Hilton Head Golf Island (HHGI) and can’t wait to experience all it has to offer. But you don’t want to miss anything. How can you take advantage of as many of the island’s wonderful features as possible? Download our top five free apps for a HHGI vacation!

 

HILTON HEAD ISLAND COMPASS

The Hilton Head Island Compass is ideal for navigating around the island as you can search nearby activities and restaurants. You can also search for activity suggestions by categories such as Culinary Experience, Family and Art. Our favorite feature, though, is that you can build an itinerary within the app. If you’re not sure where to start, try the “Shake” option, which chooses random selections for you when you shake your phone. With an open mind and the Hilton Head Island Compass app, you’re sure to have an unforgettable trip!

PALMETTO DUNES GOLF – ROBERT TRENT JONES OCEANFRONT COURSE, GEORGE FAZIO GOLF COURSE, ARTHUR HILLS GOLF COURSE

Palmetto Dunes has an app for its three layouts, the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course, George Fazio Golf Course and Arthur Hills Golf Course. In addition to using the interactive scoreboard, you can also book a tee time, schedule a club fitting or watch an instructional video. The app also offers a course tour complete with playing tips to enhance your round. Other perks include golf and dining specials (pro tip: Big Jim’s at the Jones course has great daily specials). Download the Palmetto Dunes Resort app for info about the overall resort.

THE SEA PINES RESORT

The Sea Pines Resort’s app includes information about its three tracks – Harbour Town Golf Links, Heron Point by Pete Dye and Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III – and so much more. A handy map shows where the resort’s many amenities are in relation to one another. The Exclusive Offers section is ideal for viewing daily specials at Links, An American Grill, as well as golf and other specials. Those shopping in Harbour Town will appreciate the shopping info on each store complete with a call button for each establishment. We’re particularly partial to the Events section, which allows you to view all of the fun things happening at the resort including live entertainment.

HERITAGE GOLF ON HILTON HEAD

The Heritage Golf Collection on Hilton Head Island encompasses seven courses at three clubs. These include Port Royal Golf Club (Planter’s Row, Robber’s Row and Barony), Shipyard Golf Club (Clipper, Gallon and Brigantine) and Oyster Reef Golf Club. You can book tee times through the app as well as view a course tour compete with playing tips, food and beverage menus and club deals and specials.

18BIRDIES

Many golfers have already downloaded the 18Birdies app, but for those who haven’t, it’s a game changer. Once you create a profile, you can track your scores and stats and measure your progress over time. You can also add friends and use the app for live scoring. For extra fun on the course, the app allows users to track side games including skins, Nassau, wolf and several others. Additionally, 18Birdies’ GPS+ Rangefinder capabilities offer accurate, real-time distances to and from anywhere on the course.
