Hilton Head Island: Golf Vacation Paradise
by: Shawn Kosloff
Imagine yourself playing a round of golf with names like Nicklaus, Palmer, and Player. While you may never actually get to play a round with Jack, Arnie, and Gary, you can walk in their footsteps while you play a round or two on one of their championship golf courses on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
You may have heard of a few other golf course architects that have designed a course or two in the area. Names like Pete Dye, George Fazio, Fuzzy Zoeller, George Cobb, Tom Fazio, Arthur Hills, Robert Trent Jones, and Clyde Johnston. It doesn’t matter if you’re a duffer or a scratch golfer, there are a wide variety of courses with unique layouts and challenges for golfers of all skill levels.
Planning Your Hilton Head Vacation
Beginning in the 1960’s, developer Charles Fraser developed a master plan for Hilton Head Island in which all of the homes, structures, and facilities would blend in with their natural surroundings to preserve the beauty of the marshes, woodlands, and waterways. The guidelines and covenants that guided local development are now blueprints for eco-friendly communities worldwide.
Today, Hilton Head is a thriving resort community with over 12-miles of sandy beaches, hundreds of shops and restaurants, dozens of hotels, and over 50 golf courses in the greater South Carolina Low Country. The area also features plenty of activities for non-golfers including boating, sailing, day cruises, nature and bike trails, shopping outlet malls, day spas, and seasonal festivals.
Choosing where to stay for your Hilton Head vacation depends largely upon your traveling companions and just how much you want to be pampered during your stay. There are thousands of villas available in the area for those that want a “home away from home” and don’t mind cooking and cleaning while on vacation.
Staying in one of the many hotels in the area may be a better option for most, especially if you are traveling with children or non-golfers. Many of the larger hotels offer season Kids’ Camps that allow you to break away for a day of golf or shopping. These larger hotels are all within close proximity to the beach, and all have on site food and entertainment. Some of these hotels also have day spa facilities on the hotel grounds.
But no matter where you choose to stay, you’re only minutes away from the best golf vacation of your life! Visit Hilton Head Island – South Carolina’s Treasured Coast.
