On Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
For more than a half-century, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, nestled in the heart of legendary Hilton Head Island, SC, has stood proudly as a coastal southern destination that inspires relaxation and reliable comfort. Palmetto Dunes is a place that stirs the senses and creates a homecoming for family and friends by virtue of its 2,000 acres of amenities, including world-class golf, beach, biking, racquet sports and a plethora of other outdoor activities.
Little wonder why Palmetto Dunes has been named by Condé Nast as one of the “Top Resorts in the South” in its Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards for four consecutive years.
Palmetto Dunes’ trio of championship golf courses — each distinctively different and uniquely appealing — were designed by three of the sport’s most renowned architects. The Robert Trent Jones, Arthur Hills and George Fazio Courses have all been named South Carolina’s “Golf Course of the Year.”
Under the direction of former PGA Tour player Doug Weaver, the resort’s Golf Academy offers a variety of instructional programs for golfers of all skill levels. There is also a fun new Toptracer Range at the Robert Trent Jones Course.
Tennis Magazine ranks Palmetto Dunes among “The 50 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts,” with more courts than anywhere on the island, year-round play, instruction available for all skill levels. Palmetto Dunes also has 24 lighted pickleball courts and one of the most comprehensive instructional programs on the East Coast. Last year, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis & Pickleball Center was named “Pickleball Resort of the Year” by Racquet Sports Industry Magazine.
Hilton Head Outfitters at Palmetto Dunes boasts the island’s largest fleet of bike rentals. They also have everything you and your family will need for the beach, from surf boards to beach umbrellas and everything in between. If getting out on the water is your thing, Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina — Hilton Head’s largest marina, located directly across the street from Palmetto Dunes — offers everything from access to deep water adventures, nature tours, fishing charters, boat rentals, and more.
Make yourself at home in Palmetto Dunes’ selection of vacation rental homes located just steps from the course, the beach or the courts. Villa rentals and condominium-style complexes provide outstanding resort amenities, while larger vacation rental homes provide your family the room they need and space they’ll enjoy.
And of course, whether you’re in the mood to savor a steak or sample a sandwich, dining at the Palmetto Dunes restaurants, cafes and grills conveniently located on-site will provide exactly what you need.
