Heralded as one of the "World’s Best Places to Stay" by Conde Nast Traveler, The Sea Pines Resort (www.seapines.com) is steeped in southern tradition and blessed with scenic Lowcountry landscapes. The legendary destination and its flagship course, Harbour Town Golf Links, are two of the most iconic names in golf travel having welcomed the world’s best players and thousands of fans for over 40 years at the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, one of the most distinguished events on the PGA TOUR schedule.
With the eminent red- and white-striped Harbour Town Lighthouse standing sentinel, its famous finishing hole along the Calibogue Sound anchors Harbour Town as one of Pete Dye’s seminal designs. Called "nothing short of a work of art" by famed golf writer Dan Jenkins, Harbour Town Golf Links has continually ranked in the highest echelons of championship courses and is a perennial "must play" when visiting the Palmetto State.
To complement Harbour Town, two acclaimed courses complete Sea Pines’ trifecta of championship and resort golf. Heron Point by Pete Dye is a splendid, shot-makers’ layout with penal bunkers and dramatic swales and mounding. Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III offers a true rarity on Hilton Head Island – an actual oceanfront hole set among dunes with an idyllic seascape as a backdrop on the long par-3. All three courses are resplendent with knotted hardwoods and lagoons and salt marshes teeming with wildlife. It’s the perfect harmony of the ancient game and Mother Nature.
Harbour Town, with tranquil vistas of Calibogue Sound, is the activity hub for the entire 5,000-acre community. It offers boutique shopping, an array of restaurants for all tastes and luxurious villas bordering the Harbour Town Yacht Basin, easily one of the most recognizable harbors in the boating world.
While golf is the focal point and calling card, The Sea Pines Resort features an array of world-class amenities. The Racquet Club boasts 21 clay courts and is ranked as one of the best in the U.S. Five miles of sweeping Atlantic beaches offer everything from sea-kayaking to fishing and surfing. The enchanted 605-acre Forest Preserve is ideal for horseback riding or wandering the many trails chockablock with wildflowers, wetlands and more than 130 species of birds. The Sea Pines Resort is also one of the premier business meeting and conference centers in the U.S.
Accommodations range from ocean-side villa retreats and the Four Star, Four Diamond Inn & Club at Harbour Town to beachfront homes.
