The game of golf has been a South Carolina Lowcountry tradition since Scottish immigrants to the city of Charleston organized America’s first golf club in 1786. From the day the first course was born on Hilton Head in 1961 to today, the island golf community has always valued quality over quantity – a belief that has earned Hilton Head the reputation as “the Golf Island.”
Hilton Head truly began its journey to a treasured golf destination with the 1969 opening of Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the RBC Heritage Golf Classic on the PGA Tour. When you're ready to take a break from the golf course, you'll discover that there are many more fun things to do on Hilton Head Island than chasing a golf ball around.
If you still have the energy to do something more physical you might consider a bike ride on the miles and miles of bike trails on the island, most of the resorts offer rentals. If fishing is your second sport then you might contact one of the local charter services and take a shot at landing a big one. Last but not least there are plenty of outstanding pubs and restaurant where you can sit back and relax and enjoy the evening with your favorite beverage.
