Sea Pines Resort

Sea Pines is a classic resort on Hilton Head with three championship golf courses, the most notable of which is the Harbour Town Golf Links, the home of the PGA Tour's Heritage Classic.

The Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye-designed Harbour Town Golf Links course was completed in 1969, and is a must play for the purists. The layout places a premium on imagination and shot-making rather than distance. It serpentines through marshes and dark lagoons with fairways bordered by overhanging oaks, pines, and palmettos lined with sand bunkers along the fairways and guarding the modest greens. It's almost worth the cost to play here just to come up the 18th with the lighthouse in the background. With a measurement of 7,110 yards from the Heritage tees, 75.6/146, course/slope ratings, par of 71, it's wise to pick the best of the remaining four tee boxes for your own enjoyment.

Heron Point is the former Sea Marsh layout which was redesigned by Pete Dye in 2007. Typical of Dye's courses, there's angled fairways and approaches and a broad variety of sand bunkers along with slight elevation change, which is unusual in HHI. It tests your short game with approaches guarded by water hazards and sand traps and greens surrounded by hidden bunkers, collection areas, knobs, and valleys. It plays to 6,547 yards from the middle, Dye tees, 72.5/134, course/slope ratings with a total of six sets of tees overall.

Atlantic Dunes was the first course built on HHI and features one hole directly on the Atlantic. The course has a Low Country feel as it wanders along pine and oak, tree lined fairways through lagoons and lakes with an abundance of sand bunkers and a interesting mix of challenging risk/reward options. It was redesigned by Mark McCumber in the mid-1990s and the Love Design Group in 2016 and plays to 6,493 yards from the middle tees, 71.9/136, course/slope ratings with five sets of tees overall.
