Get To Know Our partner Courses

Hilton Head Island’s golf culture and rich history in the sport have put it on the map as one of the top golfing destinations in the world.

For golf enthusiasts and the occasional weekend golfer alike, Hilton Head Island is a premier destination. It’s likely at the very top of many golfers’ bucket lists – and for good reason. Hilton Head Island is home to more than two dozen world-class golf courses, is a yearly stop on the PGA Tour schedule, and boasts ideal golf weather year-round.

Every April, the RBC Heritage Tournament, a PGA tour event, is contested at Harbour Town Golf Links, a course known for its iconic red and white striped lighthouse.  Many visitors will schedule a tee time at Harbour Town in the weeks following the RBC Heritage in an effort to experience the same course that past champions like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and most recently, Jordan Spieth have.  But fear not, if Harbour Town Golf Links is a higher degree of difficulty or a higher price point than you’re looking for, there are plenty of other breathtaking golf courses that may better suit your golf game. 


Tee it up on Heritage Golf Group’s Oyster Reef, Port Royal Golf Club, or Shipyard Golf Club, or reserve a time at one of two championship courses at Palmetto Hall. Interested in trying out a Gary Player design? Try Dolphin Head Golf Club, located just minutes from Hilton Head Airport. If you’d prefer a Rees Jones design, take a stroll through the tall pines and winding doglegs of Bear Creek Golf Club’s Par 72 Championship Course. Just off the island in neighboring Bluffton, SC is Crescent Point Golf Club and Eagle’s Pointe Golf Club, both members of the Hallmark Golf Group. 

Wherever you decide to play during your Hilton Head Island Vacation, you will not be disappointed. Find out firsthand why Hilton Head Island has long been known as one of the best golf destinations in the world!

Oyster Reef Golf Club

155 High Bluff Rd

Hilton Head Island

(843) 681-1750

Oyster Reef Golf Club 

Home to one of the most spectacular golf holes on the entire island, Oyster Reef Golf Club is a “must-make” tee time when visiting Hilton Head. Experience this 18-hole championship course that opened in 1982, while surrounded by winding lagoons and scenic island views. The highlight of your round will surely be the 192-yard, Par-3 6th hole, which plays into a gorgeous greens complex set against Port Royal Sound. 

Oyster Reef Golf Club opened in 1982 and was immediately recognized as one of the top 25 new courses in America. This Rees Jones design has been voted one of the top 20 courses in the Carolinas and enjoys a reputation as a favorite among Hilton Head Island golfers. Carved out of 190 acres of breathtaking low country terrain, Oyster Reef Golf Club’s spectacular 18-hole championship course is surrounded by winding lagoons, lush vegetation, and scenic views of the Island.

Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club

10 Clubhouse Dr | Hilton Head Island

(843) 681-1750

Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club

Situated at the Northwestern Point of Hilton Head Island, Port Royal was named to Golf Digest Magazine’s “Top 75 U.S. Golf Resorts.” Port Royal is home to two magnificent 18-hole golf courses: Barony and Robber’s Row. Built in 1963, the Barony Course was one of the first courses on Hilton Head Island. The Robber’s Row course, redesigned by Pete Dye in 1994, sits atop former Civil War Grounds and promises to be a tough test for any golfer. 

Shipyard Golf Club

45 Shipyard Drive | Hilton Head Island


Shipyard Golf Club

At Shipyard Golf Club, you experience 27 holes of spectacular golf surrounded by Carolina pines, flowering magnolias, and moss-draped oaks. The three courses, Brigantine, Clipper, and Galleon, accommodate all levels of play with plenty of risk-reward situations. The Clipper Course has gained a reputation as the toughest of the three nines, due to the well-bunkered greens and undulating surfaces. The Galleon course was the original 9 holes of Shipyard Golf Club and requires the most accurate approach shots into heavily guarded greens.  The Brigantine course, where you’ll often see alligators sunning themselves along the scenic water hazards, requires a sharp short game.

Whether playing 9, 18, or all 27 holes, you’ll experience South Carolina Golf at its finest.
