Harbour Town makes Golfweek resort list



Iconic Dye design No. 18 on Golfweek magazine’s annual “Top 100” list

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (November 28, 2018) – One of the crown jewels in the world of golf, the historic Harbour Town Golf Links at The Sea Pines Resort has been named to the list of Top 100 Resort Courses by Golfweek in the magazine’s 2019 Ultimate Guide.

The Sea Pines Resort’s legendary golf venue, located on the southernmost tip of Hilton Head Island, is ranked No. 18, joining an illustrious list of golf destinations from throughout the United States. Golfweek’s top 20 resorts include Pebble Beach, Pinehurst and Bandon Dunes. The Ultimate Guide is available at

Site of the PGA TOUR's annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, Harbour Town Golf Links is one of three unforgettable golf courses set amid scenic Lowcountry landscapes, joined by Atlantic Dunes and Heron Point, making The Sea Pines Resort among the most pleasurable golf destinations in the world. Golfweek’s Next 100 Resort Courses list included Atlantic Dunes and Heron Point.

“It is an honor for our golf courses to be included on these prestigious lists,” said Cary Corbitt, Vice President Sports and Operations at The Sea Pines Resort. “This recognition is a testament to our commitment to provide a quality golf experience each and every day.”

That commitment has not escaped PGA TOUR players, who have voted Harbour Town their second-favorite annual venue, behind only Augusta National.

Established in 1969, Harbour Town Golf Links remains the hands-down No. 1 golf attraction on Hilton Head Island. With an illustrious history that is largely responsible for Hilton Head’s golf reputation – beginning with Arnold Palmer’s tour victory in 1969 – the greatest names in the game have walked the fairways of this one-of-a-kind layout.

Harbour Town Golf Links places a premium on finesse, imagination, and shot-making. Its diverse collection of par threes is among the finest in the world, while the 18th hole – with the iconic Harbour Town lighthouse in the backdrop and Calibogue Sound lining its left side– is one of the game’s most recognizable finishes.

Still challenging the world’s best as well as everyone else as it enters its sixth decade, Harbour Town Golf Links has continued to evolve and stay up to date. Recent enhancements include the planting of new turfgrasses – Celebration Bermuda for the fairways, TifEagle Bermuda for the greens –and a modernized irrigation system so the course is always in perfect condition.

Every year, Golfweek’s select team of course raters surveys more than 3,600 courses – grading each nominated course on the basis of Golfweek’s 10 strict standards of evaluation. Collectively, these knowledgeable raters have turned in more than 75,000 votes to compile Golfweek’s Best courses lists.
