Slightly underrated as an event simply because it follows the US Masters, the RBC Heritage never fails to disappoint as year after year it conjures up excellent golf on a truly stunning golf course.
Played in the week following The Masters, the RBC Heritage is always fiercely competitive with players either trying to write their wrongs or vying for all important world ranking points to secure a place at Augusta next year.
The event attracts some of the biggest names on the tour and in recent years the likes of Branden Grace, Matt Kuchar and Graeme Mcdowell have been victorious here. It is not only in recent years that golf's biggest names have lifted the trophy at Harbour Town. The first time it was ever held at the beautiful links it was won by no other than the late great Arnold Palmer. The course is notorious for producing some low winning scores with 18 under par winning it on 3 occasions, the lowest score to win at Harbour Town Golf Links was shot by Brian Gray in 2009 when he won with 22 under par.

Renowned for being one of the shortest courses on the PGA Tour schedule, the par 71 layout provides a different challenge for the world’s best players. Having been designed Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus, it is no surprise that the result is truly spectacular as it incorporates the beauty of the natural environment and incredible golf holes. The course winds its way through towering pines and oaks which combined with the presence of thick rough means that accuracy off the tee is paramount.
Harbour Town is best known for its closing hole; guarded over by the iconic lighthouse, the 18th is one of the world's most celebrated holes. Over the years the course has picked up numerous awards which include being rated as the 13th best in America which is testament to the sheer quality of the place.

Situated in South Carolina, Hilton Head is lucky enough to experience very mild winters making it a great place to play golf year round. With the tournament being held there in April, the Springs are more than manageable with temperatures averaging in the low 20 degrees celsius.
Just 45 minutes from the airport in Savannah, Georgia getting to Hilton Head from other countries is not a taxing issue. For those flying in from the U.K it will take you 11 hours and is a route flown by many airlines, including Your Golf Travel partner British Airways.
Redesigned by Davis Love III, Atlantic Dunes is now a truly stunning course with many greens guarded by bunkers, water or a combination of the two meaning missing your target can be ruinous to your round.
Reconstructed sand dunes along with beautiful flora make the course one of the most picturesque places to play golf in Hilton Head.
Heron Point was designed for golfers of all handicaps in mind with 7 sets of tees and fairways that require accurate shot placement at times, thought off the tee will be needed.
Pete Dye has created a course that will go from strength to strength over the years making this a must play for visitors to Hilton Head.
The Jones course offers a great test of championship golf combined with awe-inspiring backrops of the Atlantic coastline.
Even the longest driver of a golf ball will be tested on this 7,000 yard plus monster with no less than 11 holes being entwined with the network of lagoons and pure white sand bunkers protecting the slick putting surfaces.
Regarded by many as the best of the three courses at Palmetto Dunes the Hills course requires accuracy from the tee along with great club selection for consistant scoring.
Arthur Hills took full advantage of the continuous lines of dunes and thick stands of palmettos creating a continously rolling layout with dramatic elevation changes. This balanced test is as beautiful as it is enjoyable, which is why it is a firm Hilton Head favourite.
The Fazio layout at Palmetto Dunes contains great swathes of sand littered all over the course, the positioning of these hazards make the Fazio course one of the most demanding on the island.
Precision is required to avoid the bunkers and water hazards that come into play but Fazio's creation is a joy to behold, and is an integral component of a golf trip to Hilton Head.
