With 3 championship public courses, an exceptional instructional facility and the private 18-hole Sea Pines Country Club, Sea Pines was named “One of the Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America,” by Golf Digest.
HARBOUR TOWN GOLF LINKS
First among the Sea Pines courses is the par-71, 6,973-yard, Harbour Town Golf Links. Designed by Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus and home of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing Golf Tournament, Harbour Town Golf Links has consistently been named “One of the Top 20 Golf Courses in the Country,” by Golf Digest and GolfWeek. Characterized by narrow fairways, overhanging live oaks and towering pines and palmettoes, the 18th hole finishes famously along Calibogue Sound with a direct view of Harbour Town’s lighthouse. The newly constructed 26,000 sq. ft., Harbour Town Clubhouse and Conference Center, will open Spring 2015.
The par-72, 6906-yard Ocean Course was the first course built on Hilton Head and its No. 15, is one of only two oceanfront holes on the island. Both the Ocean Course and newly renovated Heron Point are designated Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary courses and play out of the Plantation Golf Club, Sea Pines’ beautiful new 23,000 sq. ft., brick and cedar shake shingle clubhouse, dining and instructional facility.
The par 72, 7058-yard Heron Point was designed by legendary course architect, Pete Dye. Played from the Plantation Golf Club, Heron Point’s fairways and greens have been reshaped into dramatic angles and shifting elevations that prove both challenging and aesthetically pleasing. These renovations will be complete Fall 2014.
Under the direction of U.S. Open and Wimbledon champion Stan Smith, the Sea Pines Racquet Club has been named “One of America’s Top Tennis Resorts,” by TENNIS Magazine. Headquartered in Harbour Town, the SPRC tennis program includes instructional and competitive programs for all levels of players from junior through masters. The facility features 21 clay courts, 4-lit courts and an 1800-seat stadium court. South Beach Racquet Club, located near South Beach Marina in Sea Pines, offers 13 clay courts, 2 lit for night play.
