tough course appropriate for golfers under 15 hcp
The recently redesigned Ocean Course which was the first course to be built on the Hilton Head is now called the Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III is a truly stunning course which has incorporated and recreated some of the island’s most beautiful flora. During its redesign the stunning sand dunes were reconstructed and over 10,000 indigenous plants were planted to boost the ecosystem.
Course designer Davis Love III has won 21 PGA Tour events, 5 of those coming on the neighbouring Harbour Town Links Course and his strong love affair with the island has definitely permeated through in his redesign of the formerly named Ocean Course. The course as a whole is designed to favour the modern way of golf, with many holes suiting those distance off the tee. However, take on some of the holes at your peril as many of the greens are guarded by bunkers, water or a combination of the two meaning missing your target can be ruinous.
