HILTON HEAD, SC--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) - Hilton Head is a popular golf destination for a reason, from rolling green hills to beautiful weather, so it's no surprise that major tournaments call the city home. This April, the annual RBC Heritage returns for its 46th year, drawing top golfers and a crowd of 10,000 to one of the top events in Hilton Head.
From April 14th to the 20th, the PGA tournament will take place at Harbour Town Golf Links, home to the RBC Heritage since its start in 1969. Named one of the top 20 courses in the country by both Golf Digest and Golf Weekly, the course has hosted golf greats including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Nick Price, all of whom have walked away with the tournament's championship trophy.
Visitors in town to attend the tournament will find a convenient place to stay at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa. Located close to the airport and Harbour Town Golf Links, this Hilton Head resort allows guests to attend the day's events and then return to a relaxing retreat. After a day standing under the sun, cool off with a dip in the pool, unwind with a deep-tissue massage at the European-style spa or gather friends for a delicious meal at Conroy's, offering a menu of classic American cuisine with a focus on seafood.
Not everyone loves golf, so for those who have people in their party who'd rather do something else, there are plenty of other things to do in Hilton Head, SC. Enjoy a little retail therapy at the Tanger Outlets or Shelter Cove Marina, catch a show at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina or learn about local culture and history at the Coastal Discovery Museum.
