If you’re deciding between relaxing on the beach or hitting the golf course for your vacation, why not do both? Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island is a shining example of combining the beauty of nature with the elegance of a world-class golf experience.
Nestled on the picturesque shores of this charming South Carolina destination, Sea Pines offers golf beginners and enthusiasts an unforgettable opportunity to tee off in a setting that’s nothing short of spectacular.
In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the golf courses within Sea Pines Resort and explore the exceptional accommodations Beachside Hilton Head provides.
Sea Pines Resort: A Golfer’s Paradise
Situated on the southern tip of Hilton Head Island, Sea Pines Resort has long been celebrated as a golfer’s paradise. The resort boasts three renowned golf courses that consistently rank among the finest in the Southeastern United States.
Harbour Town Golf Links
Harbour Town Golf Links, designed by legendary golf course architect Pete Dye and design consultant Jack Nicklaus, is arguably the most famous of the three courses at Sea Pines Resort. The golf course boasts 7,000 yards of breathtaking fairways, challenging bunkers, and stunning ocean views.
This par-71 gem has been host to the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage since 1969, attracting the world’s top golfers and over 100,000 spectators from around the world yearly. What makes Harbour Town Golf Links truly special is its stunning setting, with the iconic red-and-white striped Harbour Town Lighthouse as its backdrop, framing the 18th green.
The course offers a challenging yet fair test for golfers of all skill levels. With narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and small, undulating greens, Harbour Town Golf Links demands precision and strategy. Playing here feels like stepping onto hallowed ground, where legends have made history and where you can take on the same challenges they faced.
Heron Point by Pete Dye
While Harbour Town may steal the spotlight, Sea Pines Resort’s other courses are equally exceptional. Heron Point, another masterpiece designed by Pete Dye, underwent a complete renovation in 2014.
The result is a course that seamlessly blends into the South Carolina Lowcountry landscape. Lush, rolling fairways lead to well-guarded greens, and water features come into play on several holes, adding to both the beauty and challenge of the course.
Heron Point is a par-72 course that offers golfers an experience unlike any other on Hilton Head Island. With unique challenges like water hazards, marshes, and strategically placed bunkers, this course will test your skills while allowing you to immerse yourself in the stunning natural surroundings.
Heron Point’s versatility allows golfers to choose from multiple tees. This ensures that golfers of all abilities can enjoy this outstanding layout. It’s a true testament to Pete Dye’s design prowess and is a must-play course when visiting Sea Pines Resort.
Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III
The newest addition to Sea Pines Resort’s golf portfolio is Atlantic Dunes, designed by PGA Tour legend Davis Love III. Opened in 2016, this course pays homage to the island’s maritime forest and stunning coastal vistas. The complete redesign and reconstruction of the Ocean Course transformed a previously existing layout into a visually stunning, environmentally friendly, and challenging golf course.
Atlantic Dunes offers a unique blend of modern design elements with a nod to traditional golf architecture. Love’s design incorporates natural dunes, lush native vegetation, and scenic ocean views to provide a golfing adventure that is as visually captivating as it is enjoyable to play.
The course offers five sets of tees, making it playable for golfers of all skill levels. As you make your way through the course, you’ll notice elevated greens, strategically placed bunkers, and challenging water hazards that will keep you on your toes until the very last hole.
