Golf in the Lowcountry
Hilton Head Island began its rise to golf prominence in 1969, the year Pete Dye, in association with Jack Nicklaus, created the esteemed Harbour Town Golf Links. When Arnold Palmer won the island’s inaugural PGA Tour event at Harbour Town, the Heritage Classic, on Thanksgiving weekend of the same year, Hilton Head was off and running as a golf destination.
The ensuing decades have seen tremendous growth in the Carolina Lowcountry and nearby Georgia coast, both in quantity and quality of golf experiences. The game has become such an integral part of life here that the area was named among the top ten international golf destinations by Golf Digest in 2000. Now, long time Carolina Morning News golf writer, Joel Zuckerman, has delivered a delightful paean to the region with his book, Golf in the Lowcountry—An Extraordinary Journey through Hilton Head Island & Savannah.
