Heron Point G.C. at Sea Pines Plantation, Hilton Head Island, SC – Dye’s Greatest Hits

I understand how golfers that have played the iconic Harbour Town Golf Links could overlook the Heron Point G.C. on the Sea Pines Plantation as just one of the “rest” of the courses on Hilton Head Island. Heron Point lacks the breathtaking views of Calibogue Sound, the PGA tournament pedigree, and the immaculate conditioning that…

Old South Golf Links – Something a little different in the S.C. Low Country

On my several jaunts to Hilton Head Island (“HHI”), the fairly steep discounts offered by the off-island, Bluffton area golf courses are always intriguing. On the course websites and on GolfNow, 18 holes with a cart seems to go for half, or even less, of what the HHI-proper courses charged for greens and carts fees.…

Robert Trent Jones Course, Palmetto Dunes, Hilton Head Island, SC

My round on the Robert Trent Jones (“RTJ”) Course at Palmetto Dunes made me wish I’d had two weeks of vacation to spend on Hilton Head instead of just one.  No, not because the course was that spectacular, though it was great.  It absolutely was a beautiful course in pristine condition for being so early in…

That was until the weather report came true.  It was 41 degrees and raining when…

An Unforgettable Day at Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head Island, SC

On this fourth trip to Hilton Head Island, I finally played Harbour Town Golf Links. Since The Wife and I began planning this year’s trip last fall, I looked forward to playing the epochal Sea Pines plantation course and crossing it off the Golf Bucket List.  It is a course every golfer has heard of,…

Great Fun Under Grey Skies: Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run, Hilton Head, SC

Day two of this year’s Hilton Head experience was vastly different from Day One, as the temperature plummeted overnight, producing a high temperature Tuesday only in the low 40’s.   The polar vortex had picked up our scent as we’d fled Kentucky, and followed us to the Lowcountry. Undeterred by the elements, The Wife dropped…

Palmetto Hall – Arthur Hills Course, Hilton Head Island, SC

After an extended winter of miserable weather in Central Kentucky, the Wife and I finally escaped to warm, friendly Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for a much needed vacation.  We were driving south as four to six inches of freezing rain and snow were falling in Lexington.  I could barely get sleep in our beautiful…
