The Accommodation:

Harbout Town Inn Best Value
The Inn at Harbour Town, offers a unique variety of first-class accommodations within The Sea Pines Resort. Experience the intimate boutique-style atmosphere of this AAA Four-Diamond Hilton Head hotel within the resort's much larger estate. The Inn offers 60 elegantly appointed guestrooms in a three-story building with an elevator, and overlooks The Sea Pines Racquet Club or Harbour Town Golf Links, with butlers in tartan kilts providing a 24-hour service. The Inn offers a cosy bar for the evenings, complimentary morning coffee, and an a la carte breakfast. It is located next to the Clubhouse at Harbour Town Golf Links which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Harbour Town Golf Links hosts the PGA TOUR each April for the Heritage Classic. Regularly ranked as the number 1 course in South Carolina, Harbour Town may be considered short by today’s standards, but requires perfectly positioned shots to avoid the trees bordering the narrow fairways!

Sea Pines Atlantic Dunes Course (formerly The Ocean Course) The layout is a complete reconstruction and recreation of the resort's historic Ocean Course, the first built on Hilton Head. Love and lead architect Scot Sherman have fashioned entirely rebuilt holes to accommodate modern shot values and frame scenic corridors. Atlantic Dunes features a pronounced seaside ambience and Low country feel accented by coquina shells and seaside grasses. The project's goal was to incorporate elements of the surrounding beachfront along with the area's bounty of native pines and oaks lining the fairways.

Sea Pines Heron Point Course is an exciting and challenging layout with small, well protected greens and tight undulating fairways.

America's Best Value Inn, Augusta is located off Washington Road, just 1.1 miles away from Augusta National Club. Each of the 60 guest rooms at this hotel include a 27-inch television, complimentary wifi, a coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, hairdryer, an iron and ironing board, and a minibar. An outdoor pool, continental breakfast, hot tub, 24-hour front desk, and an exercise facility are just some of the additional amenities you can enjoy, during your stay.

The Augusta hotel accommodation, located within a few miles of the course enabes you to enjoy the excitement and atmosphere of Masters Week in the heart of Augusta, where true golf fans from around the world join together in an annual celebration of golf. The bars and restaurants throng each evening with likeminded golfers, many returning to enjoy the experience and renew acquaintances year after year, thus generating a truly unique atmosphere that is surely second to none.
