Often referred to as "The Golf Island," Hilton Head isn't lacking in pristine fairways. Some offer an enviable coastal lookout while others are shrouded by mossy live oaks. All the biggest names in the game designed courses here, including (but not limited to) George and Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman and Willard Byrd, among many others. There are 30 championship courses to play on and 24 are open to the public. Your preferred course may be wherever you decide to hang your hat, but if you want to venture off your resort, you'll be presented with a host of gorgeous greens.
Many recent travelers (and golf aficionados) rave about the courses at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort and the Harbour Town Golf Links at Sea Pines Resort, labeling them as "must-play" fairways. Aside from these standouts, travelers and golf enthusiasts alike also recommend Oyster Reef and Hilton Head National.
Tee times and fee vary by course. To avoid racking up a fortune in green fees, consider opting into a "stay and play" package. The Hilton Head visitor bureau rounds up deals on its website. The visitor bureau also offers a complete list of the length, par and rating for each of the area's courses on its website.
