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.

About Harbour Town Golf Links

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.
