Hilton Head, the South Carolina island revered for its golf facilities, took a hard hit when Hurricane Matthew swept the south-eastern seaboard in early October of 206. Luckily, most clubhouses were not harmed. However, extensive flooding and tree damage rendered the courses unuseable. Since then, superintendents have been hard at work in an effort to restore the courses to their usual immaculate condition as they have prepped for the upcoming season. And that season is almost here.
Though golf in the area usually picks up in mid to late February and gathers speed toward April, Palmetto Dunes re-opened its Robert Trent Jones and Arthur Hills courses at the beginning of December. So for those golfers who were of the impression that this year’s South Carolina golf getaway would require cancellation, you need not fear.
As a matter of fact, the course is featuring several winter packages to pique interest, including offers for groups of 12 or more. Starting at $133, it includes three nights in a two-bedroom villa, three rounds of golf on the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront, Arthur Hills and George Fazio courses, range balls, and dining and pro shop discounts.
If interested, it also includes two hours of tennis court time and preferred rates on other resort activities.
The Villa Golf Package gives golfers the chance to tee it up on The Sea Pines Resort’s three acclaimed courses – Harbour Town Golf Links, Heron Point, and Atlantic Dunes.
The package is available now for $218 per player/per night and from March-May for $270. Due to the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage going on at Harbour Town, there are blackout dates of April 3-17th. Guests can enjoy three nights’ accommodations in a private villa with a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room and up to four bedrooms.
