It was the game of golf that put Hilton Head Island on the map when Charles Fraser saw through a vision too grand for most to fathom and brought in Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus to design a world-class golf course that finished along Calibogue Sound. The legendary Arnold Palmer won the first Heritage Classic in Sea Pines over Thanksgiving weekend in 1969, and Hilton Head began its rapid ascent from sleepy island to tourist hotbed.
Like the visitors who began to come here to escape their realities for a moment and enjoy our beautiful beaches, relaxing trails, and laid-back vibe, our fabulous golf courses seemed to increase in number annually. It was only a matter of time before HHI became something of a Mecca for the sport, a pilgrimage on par with Pinehurst for those in search of a getaway built around golf.
From the Hilton Head Island Junior Golf Association to the RBC Heritage, and from the par-3 course on the First Tee of the Lowcountry’s Hilton Head Island campus to Harbour Town Golf Links, golf is an integral part of the fabric of our community, and locals and visitors alike who love the game deserve a better source of information.
A little over a year in development, we’re finally ready to introduce the world to LowcoGolf.com, which we hope will become your headquarters for golf in the South Carolina Lowcountry. We’ll cover local golfers and tournaments from the juniors to the pros, report on news from the local golf industry, and provide course reviews and features to help you navigate the Lowcountry golf scene. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
