from Tennis Resorts Online. The oceanfront resort was the only resort in Hilton Head ranked in the top 5 for instruction, junior programs and children’s programs and in the top 10 for overall resorts. These rankings mean a lot to us, because they are generated from actual visitors to resorts across the globe.
Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort was also named No. 2 in the world for Best Instruction and Programs and ranked 8th in the world for Top Tennis Resorts. We also scored top marks for our junior and children programs, ranking it 3rd in the world for Best Overall Children’s programs and 4th for Best Junior Tennis programs. We are so proud of our Tennis Center and hope to see you all on the courts soon!

Tuesday we were lucky to have a visit from two-time Heritage champion Boo Weekley. The Jones Pro Shop had a crowd lined up out the door to get Boo’s autograph and picture! He graciously signed a picture for every person who came and posed for photos with some of our golf team members.
Calling all tennis aficionados 18 and younger. It’s time for the annual Palmetto Dunes Banana Open Junior Challenge!

Darby Children’s Research Institute at MUSC.
We love the almost year-round sunshine here on the Hilton Head coast, but those super sunny days can present some challenges when it’s time to hit the tennis courts. Serving into the sun can be tough. One way to keep the sun out of your eyes without hindering your game is with a pair of sunglasses made for tennis.
As with just about any sport, music instrument or creative endeavor, kids gravitate toward what offers early successes. That’s one reason why kids playing tennis at Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center will appreciate the kid-sized tennis courts.
