Southern Hospitality Is Alive And Well

Georgia Coast/Hilton Head/Charleston

5 Things You Need To Know

1. Kiawah Is Right Near Charleston
Some travelers think Kiawah Island is an entity unto itself, but it’s really right near Charleston, SC. A great trip is to enjoy some golf on Kiawah, then drive over to Charleston and check out one of the most beautiful and historic cities in America.

2. The Golden Isles
Off the coast of Georgia there are a group of four barrier islands that make up the famed Golden Isles. Of the four, Jekyll Island, Sea Island and St. Simons Island are the ones you want to visit to play golf, as the fourth, Little St. Simons Island, is more or less private.

3. The Georgia Coast Is A True Golf Destination, Really
The Georgia Coast is more than 100 miles long and has a tremendous number of attractions and activities for the entire family to enjoy, as well as a ton of great golf courses. If you’ve never visited this part of the country, it’s time to plan a trip.

4. Hilton Head’s Got A Lot Of Courses
Hilton Head is obviously best-known for Harbour Town, but Harbour Town is actually part of Sea Pines Resort. The Hilton Head area has more than 30 golf courses to choose from, most of which are pretty darn good.

5. The South Is Charming
We’ve all heard this cliché, but believe it or not, it’s actually true. Even if you’re not a hard-core golfer, the people, food and natural beauty make it a worthwhile destination.
