Imagine this: Youâ€™re on one of Palmetto Dunesâ€™ three gorgeous Hilton Head golf courses and you begin to wonder: â€śWhatâ€™s the best way to play this hole? How will I ever get around that sand trap?â€ť And then perhaps: â€śIâ€™m getting hungry. Wonder where can I get lunch or a cold drink after I get this hole-in-one?â€ť
Well, the folks at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort kind of read your mind and created a golf app for your smartphone that will answer all these questions â€“ and then some â€“ in real time and right in your pocket! Another reason weâ€™re known as one of the best South Carolina golf resorts.
The app is available for free in the iTunes store and Android market. Simply download it and then start off your day by browsing the app to learn about each of the resortâ€™s three championship golf courses. With a few taps, you can even schedule your tee time.
While youâ€™re playing with us, you can keep track of yardage with the appâ€™s built-in GPS and enter your score into a mobile scorecard that allows you to engage in some healthy live competition with others in your group. Use the app to check information about each hole on each course (par, handicap and playing tips), and when you make that hole-in-one, the app makes it easy to brag about it on Facebook. Your post will certainly make all your friends jealous that youâ€™re enjoying a great Hilton Head fall golf getaway at Palmetto Dunes while theyâ€™re at work!
Playing 18 holes makes a guy or gal thirsty (and hungry, too!), so be sure to use the app to access food and beverage info from Big Jimâ€™s BBQ, Burgers and Pizza (located at the Robert Trent Jones course), as well as the Grilles at the George Fazio and Arthur Hills courses. Tap to direct-dial the restaurants to place an order for pickup after your round.
And while youâ€™re out there on the course, you may realize you need a certain piece of equipment to improve your game. Donâ€™t forget to check out the special offers from the resortâ€™s pro shop available only to app users.
Weâ€™ve put a lot of thought into this app to anticipate golfersâ€™ needs out on the golf course. Download it, check it out and put it to use today! Let us know what you think!
