Golf Has A Deep Tradition in the Lowcountry
Golf has a deep tradition in the lowcountry. In fact, the first Golf Club in America was established in 1786 in Charleston, South Carolina.
Known as Harleston Green it was located in what is now downtown Charleston. Legend has it that the term “green fee” came from the fees paid by members of Harleston green to maintain the golf course.
Golf courses have come a long way since 1786. The Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes is the lowcountry newest 18-hole championship golf course. Expertly designed by Tommy Fazio to take full advantage of the property’s lakes and natural wetlands, the versatile Par 72, 7,300-yard course offers five sets of tees – a challenge for golfers at all skill levels. Test your creativity, shot-making skills and strategic thinking on the course’s deliberately angled greens, expansive fairways, and well-placed bunkers.
In addition to this demanding, popular course Hilton Head Lakes Golf Club offers the area’s best 36-acre practice facility, including target greens, bunkers, and multiple practice greens, a Par 3 short course ranging from 70 to 180 yards, and a full-serve golf shop.
An added benefit of golf at Hilton Head Lakes is the community itself. Hilton Head Lakes features home floor plans to fit every budget. Spacious floor plans and beautiful views of the golf course are all part of the homes in the Golf Side Collection at Hilton Head Lakes.
Life at Hilton Head Lakes isn’t only about golf though, there’s always something to explore in the lowcountry of South Carolina. Within 30 minutes or less from the entrance to Hilton Head lakes you can visit the world class resort of Hilton Head Island, take a walking tour through Old Town Bluffton, see historic Beaufort, shop the farmer’s market in Hardeeville, or enjoy Savannah’s rich history and famous River Street.
