For golfers from across the globe, a trip to Hilton Head Island’s Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is at or near the top of their wish lists. And the reasons are clear: Palmetto Dunes boasts three world-class golf courses, ideal weather year-round and plenty to do away from the links.
The ample offerings within Palmetto Dunes include biking and walking trails, a full-service marina, an award-winning tennis and pickleball center and an 11-mile lagoon that provides an inviting way to explore the area by kayak.
In late 2020, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort was recognized as one of the “Best Resorts in the South,” according to Condé Nast Traveler’s results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards. The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry.
When Today.com selected Palmetto Dunes as one of the “19 Best Resorts in the United States” earlier this year, they wrote: “Palmetto Dunes is a classic Southern resort with grand oaks draped in hanging moss, palm trees and abundant sea oats. It’s close to much of what the rest of the island has to offer, like shopping and dining. A great multigenerational destination, the resort offers a range of vacation rentals from homes to one-bedroom units each with washer/dryer, full kitchen and separate bedrooms. Accommodations are ideal for giving each person their own space, while activity beckons in the lovely outdoors.”
For Hilton Head Island locals, there exists a perpetual spring-like feel in the air and year-round golf. For golf fans, the dawning of spring marks the true beginning of the golf season. Starting with the granddaddy of them all, the Masters at Augusta National; then on to Hilton Head Island for the player and fan-favorite alike, the RBC Heritage.

For more than 50 years, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort has stood as one of the premier golfing destinations in the Southeast. Each of the three superb layouts at Palmetto Dunes are distinctively different, yet challenging.
The Arthur Hills Course at Palmetto Dunes, designed by famed golf course architect Arthur Hills, was built on a series of rolling dunes and was named the state’s Course of the Year.
The scenic Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course, home to one of the most stunning oceanfront holes in the Southeast and ranked among Golfweek’s Best in South Carolina, 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 with a series of long par 4’s guarded by bunkers and water hazards. Veteran golfers regard the Fazio course as Hilton Head Island’s true championship course.
