The Best Golf Courses on Hilton Head Island

Many know Hilton Head Island for its endless beaches, but golfers know this region for some of the most striking golf courses in the nation. With beautiful year-round weather, you never need to wait until spring again to enjoy your favorite sport. Dust off your clubs and get back into the swing of things at these Hilton Head golf courses.

Harbourtown Golf Links | Sea Pines

If you have yet to experience Hilton Head Island golf, then put Harbourtown Golf Links at the top of your list. It is the island’s most famous course, and for good reason! In 2018, Golf Advisor ranked Harbourtown Golf Links the No.1 course in South Carolina. The course is also home to South Carolina’s only PGA Tour event, the RBC Heritage! Stunning views of Hilton Head Island’s iconic candy-striped lighthouse await you at the end of this par-71 course.

Atlantic Dunes | Sea Pines

Atlantic Dunes is another celebrated course in the Sea Pines community. It is a par-72 course surrounded by ancient oaks, palmetto trees, and thousands of indigenous plants that showcase Hilton Head Island’s natural beauty. In 2018, the National Golf Course Owners Association named Atlantic Dunes the “Golf Course of the Year.” Isn’t it time that you discovered why?

Robert Trent Jones | Palmetto Dunes

There are only two oceanfront holes on Hilton Head Island, and the Robert Trent Jones Course is home to one of them. You’ll enjoy sweeping ocean views at the par-5 tenth hole! Although ocean winds present a unique challenge, this par-72 course is suitable for all levels of golfers. In 2018, the Robert Trent Jones Course was named the “Best Resort Course” by Golfweek Magazine. Local Tip: If you would like to play more than one round of golf at any of Palmetto Dunes’ courses, multi-round golf packages are available to help you save.

Arthur Hills | Palmetto Dunes

With its rolling landscapes, continuous lines of dunes, numerous waterways, and endless stands of palmetto trees, the Arthur Hills Course provides a new challenge around every corner. In 2017, the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel named the Arthur Hills Course one of the “Best Courses You Can Play in South Carolina.” We believe that this course’s picture-perfect setting may have something to do with it! This course is also home to the beautiful Hilton Head Range Light, one of the Lowcountry’s most historic lighthouses.

George Fazio | Palmetto Dunes

Although the George Fazio Course presents a challenge for every level of player, its layout is relatively forgiving. You can look forward to great par-fours and challenging par-threes. It is the only par-70 public golf course on Hilton Head Island and a favorite among locals and visitors alike!
