Ahh, Spring is in the air, and so are birdies and eagles. We’re not just talking great Blue Herons and White Egrets [you’ll see plenty of those too], we’re talking sticking greens and sinking putts. We’re talking golf. Yes, Hilton Head Island has courses that will test the nerve and skill of everyone from scratch golfers to high handicappers, so whether you can grip it and rip it or just making contact makes you happy this island will have you calling, FORE!! 

1. There are over 30 courses on the island alone. Many of them world-class tracks such as Atlantic Dunes in Sea Pines Resort, which was named the National Golf Course Owners Association’s “National Course of The Year.” Or the Robert Trent Jones course—one of three Championship courses in Palmetto Dunes—that is considered to be one of the best golf courses in the Southeast, and named by Golf Week as one of the, “Best Resort Golf Courses” in 2018. And let’s not forget Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Resort. The course that literally put Hilton Head Island on the map, and more than 40 years later, it remains one of the most revered courses in the world. Home to the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR event, this distinguished course puts your game to the ultimate test while taking your breath away with it’s unsurpassed natural island setting.

2. It’s been said that golf is a good walk spoiled, but with weather like this it’s not! In March and April the average temperature in Hilton Head Island during the day is 73 and in the low 50’s at night. Plus the sun is usually shining with only 5 days of rain on average each month. Golfer or not, it doesn’t get much nicer and that!

3. It’s never been easier to Spring Break yourself and your clubs to Hilton Head. There are more non-stops than ever to Savannah Hilton Head Airport [SAV] Savannah / Hilton Head Island International Airport. Plus, with the runway extension at Hilton Head Island Airport [HHH] there are a lot of new carriers and flights. Along with current flights from Atlanta, Charlotte, and Washington DC checkout this list for new ones starting this Spring: Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines will fly from Charlotte, Washington, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Newark. And American Airlines will offer seasonal Saturday flights from their hubs of Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago O’Hare, and Philadelphia. Plus, United Airlines will offer seasonal, twice-daily flights from Washington Dulles, Chicago O’Hare, and New York / Newark. 

4. There’s so much to do and enjoy beyond golf. Gasp! Yep, we said it. There’s more to life on Hilton Head Island than golf. Look we love a good 36 holes in a row as much as the next guy or gal, but there’s so much to do on this island. Let’s start with the 12 miles of beach–from riding the waves, to building sandcastles to doing absolutely nothing at all, there’s endless other island fun to be had. Bird watching to birdie scoring [ok, we couldn’t resist another golf reference!] Seafood to sea cruises. Jet skiing to zip lining. Dolphin watching to fireworks viewing. Shopping to shelling. No other location has this unique blend of all the upscale amenities and activities one could want balanced with an idyllic, natural coastal habitat.
