The Sea Pines Resort (Heron Point course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1964

The Sea Pines Resort (Heron Point by Pete Dye course): Little was left unchanged when Sea Pines' Sea Marsh course was completely redesigned in the mid-2000s by Pete Dye. Now known as Heron Point by Pete Dye, the course still winds its way through the oaks and pines, which line the edge of Hilton Head's tidal marshland.

Once regarded as third in line of the Sea Pines triumvirate, Heron Point has been lifted to a level where it sits more comfortably alongside its companions, the Harbour Town Golf Links and the also redesigned Atlantic Dunes course (formerly known as the Ocean course).

Stay & Play: nearby luxury accommodation available at The Inn at Harbour Town, see Where2Stay section below.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
