      Celebrate the Super Bowl at Palmetto Dunes

      The teams are set -- it’s the amazing comeback Seattle Seahawks versus the perennial favorite New England Patriots for Super Bowl XLIX Feb 1. Here at Palmetto Dunes on Hilton Head Island, we’ve got some fun activities you can enjoy before, during and after the Big Game.

      Super Bowl Golf Tournament

      Before the Big Game, kill some time by joining our Super Bowl Golf Tournament at the Robert Trent Jones course Feb.1, the morning of the game, at 9 a.m. It will be a shotgun start and four-person team scramble format. The cost to play is $45 per person of $180 per team, and your registration includes not only the tournament, but beer and snacks, as well to get your day off to a “super” start. Sign up to play.

      Game Day Specials at Big Jim’s Restaurant

      After you’ve ideally won the Super Bowl golf tournament, head direct to the restaurant on the course, Big Jim’s, where we’ll be serving game day specials and have our eight big screen TVs tuned to all things NFL football. Enjoy an all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet for $12.99 per person and drink specials like $15 domestic buckets and 2 for 1 craft beers.

      Score a Golf Deal

      Whether your team wins or loses, you’ll still “score” a deal the day after the Super Bowl with our golf special. Book your tee time and pay only the winning team’s score on Feb. 2 at the George Fazio course. Here’s hoping it’s a low scoring game :). Mention “Super Bowl Score Special” when booking your Hilton Head tee time at 843-785-1138.

      Have a great Super Bowl! For more information about a Hilton Head weekend getaway to enjoy the Super Bowl on the island, visit www.palmettodunes.com.

      Featured Hilton Head Golf Course Hole: Arthur Hills No. 13

      Enjoy this beautiful par 5 hole where our 11-mile inland lagoon system plays a key role throughout. This is one of 10 holes on the Arthur Hills golf course, named the 2009 South Carolina golf course of the year, that sits on water.

      The Hills course emphasizes accuracy and precision over distance, providing formidable challenges at every turn.

       First, you face a forced carry over water off the tee and even more water fronts the green. Here’s hoping you make it OVER -- and not IN -- the water. But it’s a lovely view either way :). An insider tip: Favor the left side off the tee.

      You’ll also want to be careful on the second shot, because the landing area narrows quite a bit beyond the 150-yard post.

      Finally, the approach shot is short but treacherous, so use caution and take your time.

      The 13th hole plays 507 yards from the blue tee and 486 from the white.

      To play your best, be sure to view our course flyover of this hole to give you an overall perspective of the shot. You’ll also want to download the free Palmetto Dunes golf app for iTunes or Android for yardages, leaderboards and more.

      For more information about booking your Hilton Head Island tee time for the Arthur Hills Course to try this hole for yourself, visit www.palmettodunes.com or call us at 866-650-4130.

      Stop Your Golf Trip Buddies' Whining Forever

      There is always one or two in every golf group: The nattering naybob of negativity. The buzzkill. The constant complainer. The guy (or gal) who, no matter how hard you work to arrange a perfect trip, they are always going to find a problem.

      Fortunately Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort has got you covered by offering the appropriate elixir to silence the most irritating of whiners.

      Here are a half-dozen complaints you may have received from Mr./Mrs. Nattering Naybob — and the perfect answer from Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.

      Get Quick Golf Quote

      1) Why do we play the same type course each day during our trip?

      Palmetto Dunes features plenty of golfing variety without leaving the premises. Guests may choose from three superb courses, each one distinctively different yet challenging. The Arthur Hills Course was built on a series of rolling dunes and takes full advantage of the natural beauty of this South Carolina sea island. The scenic Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course, home to one of the most stunning oceanfront holes in the Southeast, is a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” for its commitment to providing a sanctuary for wildlife. The George Fazio Course, Hilton Head Island's only par-70 layout, presents a challenge to any accomplished golfer: a series of long par 4s guarded by bunkers and water hazards. Veteran golfers regard the Fazio course as Hilton Head Island's true championship course.

      2) Why do we have to get up so early since the courses are an hour away?

      When you're at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, you roll over in your luxurious accommodations and as soon as you can shake a stick, you’ll be on the tee box of one of our three award-winning layouts. Palmetto Dunes experienced a three-peat when its George Fazio Course was named the 2014 South Carolina Golf Course of the Year. The honor also means all three of the Palmetto Dunes golf courses have been named as South Carolina’s Course of the Year. In 2003, when renovation work by Roger Rulewich was completed on the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course, it was named it the year’s South Carolina Golf Course of the Year, an accolade the Arthur Hills Course corralled in 2009.

      3) Why is the weather so miserable?

      One of America’s great resort Meccas from the second half of the 20th century until today, Hilton Head Island rests luxuriously along the Intracoastal Waterway and encompasses 42 square miles of semi-tropical, Lowcountry geography warmed by the Gulf Stream and framed by palm trees, live oaks and rolling dunes. Springtime blooms early and fall departs late in Hilton Head’s perennial climate. There are days in the middle of December that edge up to the high 70s and low 80s.

      Yet, Hilton Head’s hidden secret is that once summer has come and gone, most of the tourists have gone, too. Which is what makes the months between November and February — when the average high temperature on Hilton Head is 62.5 degrees — one of the most popular times of the year for locals and savvy out-of-towners.

      Of course we all know, the island’s “hottest” resort these days is Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, which — no matter what the season — is simply one of the most family-friendly Shangri-La’s around. Palmetto Dunes offers a number of appealing Winter Golf Packages and “Golf-Buddy getaways” that include accommodations at either of the resort’s two hotels, or in its golf villas and homes.

      4) Why is my golf game so bad?

      Palmetto Dunes does not cater to the advanced golfer only. Permanent junior tees at the Jones Course allow younger golfers and beginners to tackle a beautiful, 2,625-yard layout, while the Fazio Course also caters to juniors, with markings of 150 yards or less on the course. Indeed, novices, juniors, men and women alike can learn from some of the best golf instructors in the sport at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.

      There is a free golf clinic and demonstration every Monday at 4 p.m., as well as a daily golf clinic featuring the stroke of the day at the Jones course. Private lessons are available from an assistant professional, head professionals and the director of instruction. With a student-instructor ratio of 6:1, the clinic offers nearly individual attention. Former PGA Tour player Doug Weaver, the resort’s highly regarded director of instruction, has been making the game more fun and easier for guests for years. Golfers also may want to take advantage of “The Custom Fitting Experience,” a free swing evaluation and club fitting offered by the resort.

      5) Why do we always eat at the same place day after day?

      Culinary repetition is certainly not a problem at Palmetto Dunes. Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers & Pizza is a family-friendly restaurant located at the Robert Trent Jones golf course clubhouse. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Big Jim’s serves signature Southern dishes, including barbeque, gourmet burgers and grilled pizza, as well as soups, salads, seafood, steaks and ribs. It also offers a kid’s menu, as well as a wine and beer menu. The restaurant has big screen TVs, expanded outdoor seating overlooking the Jones course, a fire pit, Happy Hour specials from 4-7 p.m. daily and live entertainment seasonally on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6-9 p.m.

      Shelter Cove restaurantIn addition, located just off the Intracoastal Waterway and directly across William Hilton Parkway from Palmetto Dunes, picturesque Shelter Cove Harbour serves as a popular waterfront dining, shopping and entertainment destination. Patterned after a sunny Mediterranean villa, Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina is alive with activity day and night, along with some of Hilton Head’s widest variety of world-class cuisine. Choose from more than 20 shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants and cafés.

      6) Why is there nothing to do after the round?

      Play More. Do More. Get More. That’s the promise Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort fulfills every day for thousands of vacationers, golfers, tennis players, beach lovers, groups, and nature lovers. Palmetto Dunes has been a favorite vacation destination for decades, providing one of the richest vacation experiences in the country with more award-winning activities than any other resort in the Southeast.

      Ranked the No. 1 family resort in the United States and Canada and one of the Top 25 World’s Best Family Getaways by Travel + Leisure magazine, Palmetto Dunes features activities and experiences for every member of the family. In 2013 the resort’s Tennis Center — ranked among the 50 Greatest Tennis Resorts since 1975 by Tennis Magazine — was named one of the Top 10 Tennis Resorts in the World by TennisResortsOnline.com, which also ranked Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center No. 4 for junior tennis programs.

      Hilton Head Outfitters offers canoe or kayak rentals, as well as bike rentals, beach chairs, loungers, umbrellas, coolers and boogie boards. Fishermen may select a fly rod or light tackle to go after large redfish, trout, bluefish, flounder and black drum. The calm waters of the 11-mile inland lagoon system that runs through Palmetto Dunes present countless opportunities for fishing, bird watching and enjoying the beauty of nature. Guided paddling trips led by trained interpretative naturalists provide an introduction to the habitat of herons, osprey, dolphins and fiddler crabs. Outfitters guides also provide kayak lessons for beginners.

      Palmetto Dunes and the surrounding area of Hilton Head Island offer more than 50 miles of paved bike paths that are ideal for exploring. There is even an underpass for crossing busy Highway 278 to access Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina from the resort. Guests may rent bikes, accessories and more at Hilton Head Outfitters to explore the island and to cycle along the beach. Hilton Head Outfitters delivers bikes for free for guests staying at the resort – or anywhere on the island – making bike rentals easy and convenient.

      Family Ski Day lets guests learn how to water-ski or stay upright on a kneeboard or wakeboard. The full package includes transportation from Shelter Cove Marina to a secluded area for private instruction for all ages and skill levels. A more relaxing option includes three hours of tubing.

      Palmetto Dunes packs more excitement into a day than most children can handle. From three miles of beach to biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, kids love visiting Palmetto Dunes. Don’t miss opportunities for golf, tennis, boating, sport crabbing, exploring, nature tours, water skiing, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking or riding the Big Banana Split, an unforgettable water sled.

      15 Tips for Better Golf in 2015

      In a recent blog post, we provided you with video answers to some of your most pressing golf questions. Now, we’ve compiled some tips from Palmetto Dunes Director of Golf Instruction and former PGA pro Doug Weaver to help you do everything from perfect your putt to refine your swing in the New Year.

      Here are 15 golf tips from Doug to get you off to a great start on the green:

      1. Let others watch the ball. If you look up, you will not like what you see.

      2. Listen for the putt to drop. When you turn to watch the ball go in, that action changes your alignment. Looking up usually happens before impact, therefore causing stroke misdirection and missing the sweet spot.

      3. Tell one joke per round. The benefits of laughing will lower your score. Laughing produces a sense of well-being, lowers the heart rate and stress hormone levels. It also releases endorphins that are natural pain relievers. Also, you will more than likely to be invited back to play, regardless of your score.

      4. When it’s breezy, swing easy. When you swing at pace of 70 percent, you are more likely to strike the sweet spot. The sweet spot produces more distance and imparts a spin on the ball that aids in overcoming the influence of the wind.

      5. Remember that golf is a game of opposites. The harder you try, the worse you do. This always gets giggles, and all golfers say it is true.

      6. Visit www.mentalgolfworkshop.com (password palmetto). Yogi Berra said, "Golf is 90 percent mental and the other 10 percent requires a lot of thinking.”

      7. Watch the movie Seven Days in Utopia. Robert Duvall is the star, along with a number of PGA Tour players. Put yourself in the character of Lucas Black.

      8. Attend the Free Golf Class at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course on Mondays from 4 to 5 p.m. It’s hands-on, interactive and you may even win a prize

      9. Take a golf lesson from a pro who keeps it simple. The fewer the words, the better. After all, actions speak louder than words.

      10. Understand that putting correctly will help your driver go farther. Golf is actually much simpler than most think. The fundamentals of excellent putting can be applied to improve your driver as well.

      11. Transfer your present skills into golf. What hobbies or skills do you have? We can take the fundamentals of that skill and transfer the principals into golf. For example, when your posture and hand placement are done correctly, this leads to unconscious finger movement and minimal errors.

      12. Read fewer golf books. An ancient Chinese proverb says, “experiencing is the best way to learn.” An effective coach will have you experiencing successful golf with a hands-on method in much less time.

      13. Trust a proven coach for all areas of your game. Jordan Speith expresses significant gratitude to his entourage.

      14. Perspire 15 minutes before you practice and play. The perspiration tells you your body has blood flowing to all your joints, ligaments and tendons and to every brain cell. You are ready to swing fluidly, creating effortless power not powerless effort.

      15. Attend the Palmetto Dunes Golf Forum on February 24. This will be an evening of golf entertainment, education and enjoyment.

      January and February are great months to play golf on HIlton Head Island, says Doug. Book your tee times at one of our three championship Hilton Head golf courses, or sign up for lesson, golf school or clinic at the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy.

      5 Ways to Become the MacGyver of Golf Trips

      True, we may be showing our age by referencing the old TV action hero who made a name for himself, literally, through his ability to seemingly escape any jam with nothing more than … say … a small paperclip and a piece of chewing gum. But as you will see, the MacGyver-like ability to “get creative” when planning golf trips can be very helpful.

      MacGyver didn't have the power of the internet. However, he was always prepared. Imagine how easy it would have been to plan his annual buddy golf trip had he possessed the powerful tools offered by Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island.

      This year, impress your golf buddies by planning a trip MacGyver-style, but just don't let them know how easy it was!

      1) Newly launched Website with quick quoting capabilities

      Get Quick Golf Quote

      Planning a Hilton Head Island golf vacation just got even easier with a new user-friendly and device responsive website for Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. The new website, located at www.palmettodunes.com, lets guests sort almost 150 Hilton Head vacation homes and rentals by date, location, view and number of people each unit can accommodate. Users can now also reserve golf tee times, bikes, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, beach chairs and more via the click of the mouse.

      The website can be easily viewed and navigated across a variety of electronic devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices. Other features include a new easy-to-navigate resort calendar that helps users view the variety of events taking place at Palmetto Dunes during their vacation, which can include nearly 30 tennis clinics weekly, along with golf clinics, dining specials, live music, family events at Palmetto Dunes' waterfront Shelter Cove Harbour and others.

      2) Online planning resources to make trip planning easy

      Indeed, you really don't need more than a phone or a computer to “MacGyver” your next Hilton Head Island golf trip. Don't desire to lug your golf clubs? The Palmetto Dunes Rental Club Program is a far cry from the worn-out, no name sets available elsewhere. Only full sets of the very latest clubs from top brands TaylorMade, Nike, and Cobra are offered to visiting golfers in need of equipment. Or you can ship your clubs directly to our courses with ease using our partner Shipticks. Ground shipping is as low as $39.99.

      The new Palmetto Dunes website's interactive map allows users to clearly view and highlight the location of various activities and hubs within the resort, including its three championship golf courses, Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, oceanfront Dunes House restaurant and meeting venue, Hilton Head Outfitters, bike paths, beach access points and more. Viewers can also see where specific neighborhoods and vacation units are located within the resort and their proximity to different activities.

      3) Pre-plan the games your group can play while at Palmetto Dunes

      During peak times when activities and gear can easily sell out, the ability to quickly reserve your rentals and tee times online in advance helps guests ensure they have access to the activities most important to them. The new website simplifies the vacation preparation process for busy guests and makes it easier to plan their activities and schedule ahead of time.

      Golfers can watch virtual flyovers of the three resort golf courses, see maps of each hole and sneak a peek at the immensely popular Robert Trent Jones golf course web cam, watching golfers start and conclude their rounds.

      4) Scout out how to play each hole on the free golf mobile app to gain an extra advantage

      Always striving to remain ahead of the golf industry curve, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort has created a free golf app for a golfer's smartphone that MacGyver would have loved: The app answers questions in real time such as: “What’s the best way to play this hole? How will I ever get around that sand trap?” Or perhaps, “I’m getting hungry. Wonder where can I get lunch or a cold drink after I get this hole-n-one?”

      In addition, golfers can keep track of yardage with the app’s built-in GPS and enter their score into a mobile scorecard that also allows them to engage in live competition with others on their golf buddy trip. Use the app to check information about each hole on each course (par, handicap and playing tips), and when you make that ace, the app makes it easy to brag about it on Facebook.

      5) Talk to the group golf planning experts to put the finishing touches on the perfect golf trip

      Along with its trio of world-class golf courses, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort features an 11-mile inland salt-water lagoon system, an award-winning tennis center, a Mediterranean-style marina featuring shopping and dining, and an outdoor adventure center for bike rentals, canoes, kayaks, fishing and much more. Earn preferred rates and priority access for golf, tennis bikes and more, along with up to 20% off resort dining and select retail with charging privileges and booking tips from the island experts.

      So grab your Swiss Army Knife and make MacGyver proud … along with your friends and family … when you plan your next golf trip to the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.

      Featured Hilton Head Golf Course Hole: George Fazio Number 17

      George Fazio course Hilton Head #17

      Named the best golf course in South Carolina for 2014, the George Fazio golf course is the only public Par-70 course on Hilton Head Island. With tree-lined fairways on the front nine and tighter shots requiring strategic positioning on the back nine, the Fazio course can be both a challenge and delight!

      The final four holes of Fazio are especially tough, including three well-bunkered par 4s and the par-3 17th over water, which is our featured hole.

      Described as “one of the finest par 3 holes on Hilton Head Island,” the 17th hole plays over water and has out of bounds creeping in from the left. If your shot is short, it will land in the water, so consider the wind. The only smart play on this hole is to the middle of the green.

      Our advice: If you’re lucky enough to find the putting surface, take your two putts and move on.
