Why golf has made Hilton Head Island famous

Hilton Head Island is one of the country's foremost golf destinations. Not long ago, Golf Digest named the island among its top 10 best golf resorts in the world. Hilton Head has never been about the number of courses found here, but about the quality of those courses. From design to service, Hilton Head Island's golf community has always strived for perfection.

With breathtaking oceanfront courses, challenging riverside courses, golf courses that wind through the centuries-old oak groves, courses along tidal marshes or pristine lakes and lagoons, and golf courses designed by the PGA's best known players, Hilton Head Island is sure to provide you with a memorable golf vacation.

For 43 years every April, the PGA Tour's Heritage golf tournament has been played on the Harbour Town Golf Links. The Heritage is a lot more than a golf tournament. It's a social gathering that plays a big part in the lives of local and regional volunteers, and benefits many local charities. The tournament also brings thousands of visitors to the island, and is an important part of the local economy.
