Where2Golf says: 

Harbour Town Golf Links: Without doubt the jewel in the Hilton Head crown. On this excellent 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.

On this relatively flat tree-lined parkland layout it is essential to get into good positions from the tee. That accomplished, your next task is to fly your way over an impressive array of bunkering that expansively protects the relatively small greens. The superb short par-4 9th is one of several potential card wreckers you'll meet along the way. After a good drive from the tee, another high-flighted pin-point approach will be needed to land your ball safely on the dance floor.

With the first 16 excellent and testing holes played through a predominantly tree-lined setting, the fabulous closing duo open out onto the impressive Calibogue Sound. Here, on the shoreline of the wide Harbor River estuary, the terrific par-3 17th is dangerously flanked by the water margin. The superb par-4 18th, one of the scariest and most scenic closing holes you'll play on America's eastern seaboard, is flanked from tee-to-green by the estuary. From the tee and on your approach, Calibogue Sound awaits anything hit too far left. With Harbour Town's iconic red-and-white striped lighthouse providing the final backdrop, this stunning hole signs-off a very enjoyable, testing and ultimately scenic layout.

Stay & Play: luxury onsite accommodation is available in the Inn at Harbour Town (see Where2Stay section below).
