Unwind on Hilton Head Island
There’s a reason why Hilton Head Island’s RBC Heritage tournament nestles in perfectly the week after The Masters. Following the intensity and scrutiny of Augusta National and the battle for the green jacket, the short 2-hour drive to the idyllic South Carolina coastal town provides the perfect escape. An opportunity for players to relax within paradise vacation surroundings.
You’ll often find players’ families make the trip, enjoying the long stretch of beaches and cycling through the beautiful tropical vegetation on the island.
As much as Hilton Head may be a change of pace from major championship golf, this year’s RBC Heritage is one of the PGA Tour’s new designated events, meaning one of the strongest fields in recent memory will assemble.
With recent winners of high caliber, including Jordan Speith, Mat Kuchar, and Jim Furyk, Harbour Town golf links ensure a stern test of strategy, shot-making, and short game.

Hilton Head is the ideal shoulder season and winter getaway, with January high in the early 60s and minimal precipitation allowing for pleasant golfing conditions.
