A new shuttle service will be added this year for the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.
The free shuttle will run from the Town of Hilton Head Island public parking lot at Coligny Circle from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., first-come, first-served, from Monday, April 11, through Sunday, April 17.
Tournament director Steve Wilmot said Monday the change is in response to feedback from residents and businesses on the south end of Hilton Head following last year’s move by the tournament to put all general parking out of Sea Pines for the first time.
Restaurants and bars complained that they lost customers who were shuttled straight into Harbour Town from off-site parking at Honey Horn. The Honey Horn-based shuttle will continue.
The change was made in conjunction with the town, the tournament and Coligny Plaza.
Fans are encouraged to walk or ride bikes to the shuttle site at Coligny Beach Park.
Also new this year, the “Will Call” location will be at the main entrance to the tournament at the Harbour Town Golf Links. Last year, it was located at the Honey Horn parking lot. A ticket is not required to ride the buses to the tournament.
“We are committed to making the RBC Heritage convenient for all Hilton Head Island residents,” Wilmot said in a news release. “We hope south-end residents and visitors take advantage of the official shuttle service.”
