Featured PGA Tour Destination: Hilton Head Island (US)

A week after the Masters: The RBC Heritage 2019

The RBC Heritage is South Carolina's only PGA golf tournament, held annually at Harbour Town Link Golf course on Hilton Head Island. Harbour Town Golf Links has played host since 1969 to one of the best known tournaments on the PGA Tour calendar. The original purse of $100,000 ($770,000 in today’s dollars) has jumped to $6.9 million.

Harbour Town is without doubt the jewel in the Hilton Head crown. On this Pete Dye design, 18 excellently crafted holes will thoroughly test your game. With towering oaks and fir trees lining the tightish fairways, the course builds to a fabulous climax alongside the wonderfully scenic Calibogue Sound. With Harbour Town's iconic red-and-white striped lighthouse providing the final backdrop, the stunning 18th hole signs-off a very enjoyable, testing and ultimately scenic layout.
