A Relaxing Golfing Escape on the Fairways of Palmetto Dunes Resort

, , ,

Sometimes, we go on a golf trip for the thrill of the game; we want to focus on perfecting our skills and play a few adrenalin-pumping rounds. On other occasions, we just want a relaxing escape, to unwind and enjoy a well-deserved break from our hectic daily life.

We've been asked several times what the most relaxing golf getaway would be and if you want to find the answer to that, we recommend visiting Palmetto Dunes Resort on Hilton Head Island.

South Carolina is popular among golf enthusiasts for many reasons. A mild climate, picturesque landscapes, coastal views, and championship-quality golf courses make it an ideal destination for golfers. 

The South Carolina golf haven is an example of what an exceptional golf getaway can mean - a combination of three unique courses and flawless customer service that is second to none. The resort was created to offer world-class golf experiences. Still, you'll find many attractions near Palmetto Dunes Resort to visit between your golf rounds and engaging activities to enjoy in addition to golf, such as:

  • bike rentals

Play Three Golf Courses Designed by Golf Legends

In recent years each of the three championship courses has been named the "South Carolina Golf Course of the Year" by both players and peers. All three layouts are Audubon-certified for their commitment to providing a safe home for wildlife.

Being located on the Atlantic Ocean, the shifting winds make every hole play differently on Robert Trent Jones Course, providing a challenging experience for golfers regardless of their skill level. The stunning ocean views from the elevated green of the signature par-5 10th hole make playing this top-rated course one of the most rewarding golf experiences on Hilton Head Island.

The Robert Trent Jones Course features:

  • Full-service clubhouse
  • On-site golf shop
  • Golf Carts with GPS Mobile Golf System
  • Big Jim's BBQ, Burgers, Pizza & Catering

The course's signature hole is the par-5 10th hole, as it often plays into a prevailing wind and can take three solid shots to reach the green, but once you get there, a breathtaking ocean view is your reward.

The George Fazio Course was recently named the "South Carolina Golf Course of the Year" by the SC Golf Course Owners Association for a reason. Most clients consider it one of the most challenging public courses in SoCal. It was designed to provide a tough but fair test for golfers regardless of their skill level.

The George Fazio Course features:

  • Clubhouse & Fazio Grill
  • Diamond Zoyzia greens
  • "Birdie Ball" practice facility
  • Golf Carts with GPS Mobile Golf System
  • On-site golf shop

The Arthur Hills Course has long been considered one of the area's most unique layouts. It was ranked recently among the "Top 30 Best Courses You Can Play in South Carolina." Golf legends such as Tiger Woods and David Duval played in college golf tournaments hosted on this course. What better way to perfect your skills than playing where golf champions honed theirs? The Arthur Hills course requires focus, accuracy, and precision, providing challenges at every hole. The layout offers an unparalleled experience with its extensive lagoons winding through 10 holes.

The Arthur Hills Course features:

  • Clubhouse
  • Arthur Hills Grill
  • Ten different holes in the water
  • Carts with USB chargers
