Island Treasures Southern Charm
Hilton Head Island
Top 5 Player-Friendly Courses
1. Robert Trent Jones Course At Palmetto Dunes
Palmetto Dune’s 11-mile lagoon system comes into play often, and at 7,000+ yards from the back tees, you’ll have your hands full. Play it forward and enjoy a great round on a world-class golf course.
2. Old South
A sweet Clyde Johnston design that flows with—rather than cutting through—existing forests and marsh.
3. The Barony at Port Royal
If your game is more about accuracy than length, then George Cupp’s timeless design will leave you smiling all the way.
4. Hampton Hall
Whether you play it forward at 5,300 yards or all the way back at 7,500 yards, your time at Hampton Hall will be richly rewarded by this fun and challenging Pete Dye design.
5. Eagles Point
Perennial MCI Heritage contender (and oftentimes winner) Davis Love III created a beauty at Eagles Point, a course that allows you to get wild with the driver. Be careful with your irons, however—Eagles Point will penalize an errant approach.
