Living in Hilton Head isn’t all about the beach. Homes may have spectacular views of the ocean and people may take the boat out for a cruise, but when it comes time to relax on land, golf is the answer. Featuring over 20 championship golf courses, Hilton Head Island has consistently remained one of the nation’s best. Challenging holes, deep sandpits, and small creeks are all local features that create a great golf experience for enthusiasts. Course architects like Pete Dye and Robert Trent Jones Sr. have articulately sculpted extraordinary golf courses to fit a high skill-level and relaxed lifestyle.
The Beauty of Hilton Head Golf
Feeling the warm, South Carolina sun on the back of your neck as you eye the fairway is just the beginning to a fun day on the course. Palmetto trees and small marsh-dunes decorate the horizon. Seagulls are heard chirping above, and you feel relieved by the gentle beach-breeze. Having the best in Lowcountry beauty is a real pleasure, which is why the PGA regularly holds tour events at Hilton Head.
