Golfers Head to Hilton Head This Weekend for Amateur Tour Championships

Hilton Head golf tournamentAmateur golfers from across the United States will converge on Hilton Head Island this weekend for the Golfweek Amateur Tour National Championship.

Beginning Friday, October 18 and continuing through Sunday, October 20, more than 800 golfers will hit the greens at nine different Hilton Head golf courses, including our own Robert Trent Jones course and Arthur Hills golf course, trying to take top honors.

This is the eighth year the tournament has been held in Hilton Head, and organizers say it’s set to become the largest competitive stroke-play event ever held on the island.

The field for this national championship is drawn for golfers at more than 700 qualifying tournaments in 30 states across the U.S.  The best from each of five flights are then selected to compete in the nationals. Winners of the flights receive more than $19,500 in gift certificates.

"We expect another competitive tournament throughout all five flights. Golfers are grinding throughout the season to earn enough points to qualify for the National Championship," says Tour President Dennis McCormac. “The National Championship is a big event both for our tour members and their families. It's really evolved into a family event over the last decade with more and more spectators coming out each year to show their support for these dedicated players.”

Golfers will be playing at both of our courses all weekend and you can check out the Robert Trent Jones webcam to watch them tee off starting at 8:30 a.m. each day. 

We welcome all the golfers and their families to Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort! Be sure to take advantage of our many other activities, including tennis, bike rentals, kayaking, fishing and more. For more information on activities and accommodations, call us at 866-744-7558.
