The Golf Courses:
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.
All three courses are of a similar quality and standard and we give you the opportunity to upgrade to play The Links.
Golf can be added to your Augusta stay and our recommendations will be based on driving out of Augusta that day.
