Palmetto Dunes offers cozy and comfortable accommodations for all group sizes scattered throughout the property. From the fantastic villas on the golf courses to spacious houses near to the beach.
The George Fazio Course is the only public par-70 course on Hilton Head Island. Playing just under 7,000 yards from the tips, this course offers a unique and delightful challenge throughout the round. The tree-lined fairways roll gently on the front nine, while the back nine offers tighter shots that require strategic positioning off the tee. The Diamond Zoyzia greens are relatively small and undulating but add to the course’s charm. With five sets of tees, the Fazio Course offers golfers of every skill level an enjoyable round.
The Arthur Hills Course plays just over 6600-yards and has accommodated legends such as Woods and Mickelson during their collegiate years. The Hills course presents the challenge of sloping lies and ocean breezes as well as an extensive network of lagoons winding through 10 different holes. A full warmup area including a driving range, short game area, and putting green will help get you ready for your round. The course has four sets of tees to choose from to accommodate every golfer. This popular layout has earned a much-deserved reputation as one of the island’s best golf experiences.
The Robert Trent Jones Course is home to only one of the two oceanfront holes on Hilton Head Island. This much-loved course offers wide fairways, expansive greens, challenging bunkers, and subtle elevation changes. With five sets of tees, players can choose a friendly round of golf or try a longer test on the back tees at just over 7,000 yards. With the course being situated so close to the ocean, the shifting wind adds to the challenge on every hole and the scenery is abundant throughout this Low Country classic.
There are numerous different villa options within the resort ranging from one to four-bedrooms with a variety of resort and ocean views. The villas are updated with full kitchens, living room with TV, wireless internet, and washer/dryer units. The multi-story properties offer great views of the Atlantic Ocean and golf courses.
