August is “National Golf Month.” And there is no better place to celebrate than Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, one of the country’s most popular golf getaways for more than 50 years. Here are a few ways golfers can ring in National Golf Month at Palmetto Dunes.

2. Buy New Clubs or a New Golf Outfit
You know what they say: Look good, play good. The best golf clothing and more on Hilton Head Island can be found at Palmetto Dunes. Stop by any of the three Golf Pro Shops to make sure you’re properly “tech-ed up” to play — or just treat yourself to a little retail therapy. Each shop has its own specialty brands, including Waggle, Johnnie-O, William Murray Golf, Peter Millar and Travis Mathew clothing. All three Pro Shops also offer Srixon rental club sets for men, women and seniors. You’re sure to find what you’re seeking at Palmetto Dunes.
3. Watch our popular golf video tutorials on YouTube
Watch our many popular golf videos on our YouTube channel. Or better yet, email your question to Doug Weaver (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Doug will video respond with his wisdom. The Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy, lead by Doug Weaver, includes a video analysis sent by email, on-course instruction, rules and etiquette lessons, the school’s video lending library, take-home materials, free range privileges, plus nine holes of golf daily on a space-available basis.
4. Take your kids out to play
Palmetto Dunes is an ideal place to introduce your family to the joys of the game. Take your kids out late in the afternoon — aboard a four-seat golf cart, if you’d like — for a traditional 18-hole round or a 9-hole time-saver during the summer season. And the Palmetto Dunes courses are very family-friendly. 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 200 yards or less on the course. There’s something to spark joy for every member of the family at Palmetto Dunes. Call 866-744-7558 to reserve an evening 9-hole round.
5. Play all three courses
One of the premier golfing destinations in the Southeast, Palmetto Dunes offers guests a trio of superb courses, each one distinctively different and challenging. All three golf courses at Palmetto Dunes have been named the “South Carolina Golf Course of the Year.” Golfers can save more by booking multiple rounds.

7. Plenty to enjoy during a rain delay
Hilton Head is an island paradise, but it does occasionally rain. Not to worry, because Palmetto Dunes offers plenty to do away from the golf course. Escape the wet stuff — and the heat — by heading indoors to On the Mark Archery’s new, air-conditioned range at 5 Trent Jones Lane, next to the resort’s Robert Trent Jones clubhouse. In addition, the recently renovated Hilton Head Rear Range Lighthouse overlooking the Arthur Hills Golf Course is beautiful and worth a visit. Hilton Head Island’s only historic lighthouse is featured on the National Register of Historic Places and part of the Inventory of Historic Light Stations.
8. Get the first tee time available
There’s something special about being the first group off on the golf course — the “dew-sweepers” as they are known. With easy, on-line booking and three outstanding layouts, Palmetto Dunes provides golfers plenty of opportunity to earn that distinction while setting the pace for the day. You can make accommodation inquiries, tee times and reservations online at the award-winning, easy-to-navigate website, Palmetto Dunes' innovative golf app (search Palmetto Dunes Golf in your app store) or by speaking directly to a member of the Palmetto Dunes travel planning crew at 866-744-7558.
9. Walk the course — or ride in style
Palmetto Dunes boasts a state-of-the-art fleet of golf carts produced by Club Car that are equipped with Visage touch-screen Global Positioning System (GPS), as well as USB ports to charge cell phones and play music devices through built-in Bluetooth speakers. If you’re looking to boost your calorie-burning quotient while teeing it up on some of the south’s most beautiful and challenging courses, you can walk the Palmetto Dunes golf courses, carrying your own bag or using one of our handy pull carts.
10. Enjoy a memorable meal before or after your round
Don’t forget to “fuel up” before or after your round. Overlooking Palmetto Dunes’ Robert Trent Jones golf course, the popular Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers, Pizza & Catering restaurant serves up a wide array of delicious pub fare. For the tastiest evening dining, Alexander’s Restaurant & Wine Bar features a summer menu of Lowcountry-sourced seasonal dishes and longtime favorites like shrimp and grits, stuffed flounder and wiener schnitzel. Makes our mouths water just thinking about it.
So, please join us in celebrating “National Golf Month” in style, at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. You’ll be glad you did!
