Summer in Hilton Head

You’re going to wish you had another month of summer with everything there is to do on Hilton Head Island.


For years, decades even, Hilton Head Island developed a reputation as a summer fun hotspot based on three things: golf, tennis and the beach. And to this day, if you come to Hilton Head Island looking for that trinity of outdoor bliss, you will find it in spades.

Our golf is among the best in the world, with 24 courses on-island and dozens more in the Lowcountry beyond. It’s still one of the top reasons to come to Hilton Head Island, and for good reason. Whether you’re teeing it up at Harbour Town Golf Links, where the pros play the RBC Heritage, or immersing yourself in the lush scenery and challenging layout at Oyster Reef, you’re

RBC Heritage 2017 Volunteers

It’s one of the 42 PGA Tour stops, the biggest events in the state, and one of the largest social events of the year for Lowcountry residents and visitors. The 2017 RBC Heritage was nothing short of fantastic, as the curtain was pulled back showcasing the iconic Harbourtown Lighthouse and the Calibogue Sound.
