“There are ample reasons why Travel + Leisure Magazine named Hilton Head the No. 1 vacation island in the U.S.,” says Cary Corbitt, President of the Lowcountry Golf Course Owners Association. “Our courses, clubs and resorts provide year-round enjoyment and incredible value for families and friends searching for ultimate golf getaways.”

With numerous courses for players of any and all abilities, exceptional value, pleasant year-round weather and direct flights from more than 20 major cities, Hilton Head Island is one of the world’s premier golf destinations. In addition to the IAGTO honor, Hilton Head Island has received recent accolades from Golfweek, Golf Channel’s Golf Advisor and the South Carolina Golf Course Rating Panel. Hilton Head Island was named the 2019 “South’s Best Beach Town” by Southern Living Magazine.

From East Coast and Midwest population centers, enjoying a round of golf on one or more of the area’s 30-plus renowned area courses keeps getting easier. For decades, two airports have serviced the southern neck of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) is about 45 miles south of Hilton Head, just across the South Carolina-Georgia state line. The regional Hilton Head Airport (HHH), meanwhile, is mere minutes from all island resorts.

Centrally located mid-island, Hilton Head Airport allows visitors and residents to enjoy the luxuries of a "big city" airport without hassles such as traffic jams when looking for a parking space, mile-long hikes from a parking garage to the terminal and long lines at the ticket counter.

In 2018, Hilton Head Airport completed a $27.5-million expansion project, lengthening the runway from 4,300 feet to 5,000 and allowing larger jets to land.

Now, three major airlines will be servicing Hilton Head Airport with nonstop flights to and from more than a half-dozen hub cities. Previously the only carrier flying onto Hilton Head, American Airlines began jet service immediately upon completion of the runway extension.

United Airlines now runs seasonal service in and out of the Hilton Head Island Airport to hub airports in Washington, D.C., Chicago and New York City. United operates nonstop flights from Hilton Head to Washington Dulles International Airport two times a day; flights to Chicago O’Hare International Airport two times a week; and flights to New York/Newark Liberty International airport once per week.

Not to be outdone, Delta Air Lines now runs three daily flights between Hilton Head and Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. On June 8, Delta will begin Saturday-only flights between Hilton Head and New York City’s LaGuardia Airport. And, there are numerous additional flights into Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport with Allegiant Air, American, JetBlue, Delta, Frontier, Sun Country and United all offering flights from multiple gateways.

More than a million rounds of golf are played on Hilton Head every year. While some of the top area courses are private, Hilton Head has earned its reputation as one of the world’s finest golf destinations, because of its outstanding public and resort courses that will satisfy the palate of even the most selective golfer.

For visitors, the “Golf Island” has made planning your golf vacation very easy by visiting HiltonHeadGolfIsland.com. Marvel at our 30-plus area golf courses, browse our custom resort packages and attractive rates, and see all that Hilton Head Island has to offer away from the links.

Planning your dream golf trip is just a click away.
