Playing Golf On Hilton Head Island


Posted by Dexter Francois | Posted in , | Posted on Monday, July 26, 2010

I spent last week on vacation on Hilton Head Island. This is truly a golfers paradise. There are so many great courses to choose from. All of the courses are in great condition and the people are very friendly.

I played four rounds at three different courses. I love playing new courses. If I could play a different track every day, I would be in heaven. Hilton Head offers all types of courses to challenge the ardent golfer. And the scenery is quite breathtaking.

I took a lot of pictures of my time on the island. My favorite are the photos that I took of the golf courses. If you ever get a chance, take a trip to Hilton Head. You will not be disappointed. Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite and if you have any Hilton Head stories feel free to share.

Have a good round and always hit your target.

Approach into the green.

Narrow fairways.

Not much room for era.

Hitting out of the shadows.


Tee shot on a par 5. The hole is way over to the left over the bunker and behind those trees.

Par 3, 5th hole, just 10 steps away from my back door.

Tradition National Golf Course - Tommy Fazio Design

Driving range first thing in the morning. We were the 1st group out.

How could you not want to play golf when you have scenery like this? Beautiful!

Wide open fairways.

Split the goalpost and you're sitting pretty in the fairway.

First time I've ever seen an armadillo in person. I thought it was a rabbit at first.

Tradition National Watchtower.

Port Royal Golf Club (Robber's Row) - George W. Cobb Design

The steps leading to the driving range.

This course was pretty tight off the tee.

This is what I faced after the tee shot from the last picture. Water left. Narrow on the right. And to make it worse, a bunker in front of the green.

Keeping a watchful eye on the golfers passing by.

One of the most visually intimidating tee shots I have ever faced. Can you find the fairway?

You must be precise with this tee shot.

Who's that?

It's Al E. Gator just in time for the 19th hole.

Looking over the 18th hole.

The 18th fairway.

The 18th green. I didn't realize it was right up against the water. Don't miss left!

The winner of The Verizon gets one of these jackets. This display was inside the lighthouse.

Getting closer.

Made it! The 18th green. Now it's time to get out of here before I get caught.

    That's so awesome... I'm planning to get to Hilton Head in Spring 2011. I can't believe you encountered so much wildlife. Especially love the Armadillo! It doesn't take much to distract me when I'm on the tee... an Armadillo sure would. :o)

    Nice Patricia! Spring should be the perfect time of year to visit. It was a little hot and humid this time of year. The good thing was that we had the courses to ourselves.

    The wildlife is insane. Be sure to bring your camera. There is a lot of cool stuff to capture. The armadillo WAS crazy. He just kinda posed for me. He was more interested in his snack I think. You're going to love Hilton Head.

    P.S. Make sure to visit The Salty Dog. Thanks for stopping by.

    I think is golf is not a fitness play. It only for the entertaining play. You does hit the ball and long wait for chance to hit ball again.
