Hilton Head Island Golf

They put the G into Golf here on Hilton Head Island. There are more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the United States. Hilton Head offers 15 public access courses on the island and nine more off-island nearby. This overview does not cover private courses as Long Cove Club or Wexford.

Prices for golf are seasonal, and change at different times for the various courses. Prices are also subject to "specials" offered by the courses, often reflecting discounts for afternoon play or to play multiple courses. The rules for making tee times vary among the courses as well.

Golf Discounts offered at 24 Golf Courses in Hilton Head through Last Minute Tee Times - 843-689-2262; or use Heritage Golf for Port Royal, Shipyard and Oyster Reef at 843-689-GOLF. Lastly, to pre-book online golf only packages, go tohttp://www.heritagegolfgroup.com/ShowSite.asp?menu=home. Save an additional 10% when paying at the Club House by mentioning that you are staying with Hilton Head Hideaways. I live on the Island and play a round of golf weekly and use the 2 aforementioned golf booking specialists myself.

Need a golf lesson? Doug Weaver is a former PGA Tour Player and host to Hilton Head Golf Weekly on WHHI TV. I am taken my lessons from him. Also, golf lessons also make a great Christmas or Birthday Gift. Whenever a friend or relative visits us on the Island, we usually give them a gift of a lesson with Doug. His number is 843-682-3333.

Doug Weaver conducts a free golf clinic over at the Robert Trent Jones Course in Palmetto Dunes Plantation every Monday at 4 PM. Last an hour and you are sure to pick up something new and have a great time.

Whenever a golfer or relative visits us on the Island, I usually give them a gift of a lesson with Doug. I highly recommend his approach.

Golf lessons are also available at The Golf Academy of Hilton Head . Whether you are just beginning to play the game or have been playing for years, our PGA Professionals can help you in every aspect of your game.

Heron Point is the new name of the Sea Pines Ocean Course following extensive remodeling. It was designed by Pete Dye and it opened September 15, 2007.

For beginners or those needing a basic practice round, the Executive Golf Club offers 6 par 3 holes and 3 par 4 holes and has rental clubs. You can walk or ride. First 9 holes $14.50 to $29.00. Located off island in Bluffton. 843-837-6400.

General note: Some clubs are reserved for member play only at certain times. All clubs reserve the right to change prices without notice - confirm when you reserve tee times.

If you are staying Hilton Head Hideaways then you are less than a mile from the best practice area on the Island. Just go to the Plantation Club Clubhouse - home to the Sea Marsh and Heron Pointe Courses and get a bag of balls for $8. They have two putting greens, a chipping green with sand traps and a driving range. I practice putting a bag - pick them up, chipping a bag - pick them up, and then driving the bag. I suggest that will be the most fun you will have for an hour on the Island for only $8.

Note 1: Shipyard, Hilton Head National and Rose Hill each have three 9-hole courses. Golfers play two (or three) of them.

Note 2: The Daufuskie Island courses are now public. Golfers should know they are accessible only by boat, usually a ferry that runs every two hours or so. A golfing outing here will be an all day affair. Ask about the cost of the ferry.

Some courses offer 9 hole rates. Some low end rates quoted are for 3 day packages or require a coupon.

The Verizon Heritage of Golf tournament will be held starting April 14, 2008 - get more Information here.
