Hilton Head Island is gearing up for one of its greatest golf traditions, the RBC Heritage at beautiful Harbour Town Golf Links in The Sea Pines Resort! South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR event is almost (and finally) here!
“The RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island has the PGA TOUR’s most unique atmosphere. Louder colors and louder fans. More sun. More fun. And a completely refreshing attitude. If other TOUR stops are pinstripes and pretense, the RBC Heritage is a tournament of a different color. So come get your plaid on at the 2013 RBC Heritage!”
This will be the 45th year for this tradition, bringing in spectators from all over to enjoy the event. Just a few short days away, the event begins on Monday, April 15 and goes until April 21.
The RBC Heritage has certainly grown over the course of its 45 years! What started as a $100,000 purse has grown to $5.7 million in 2012 and we expect over 100,000 fans to attend the tournament! In fact, CBS and The Golf Channel block out 15 hours of live TV coverage, sharing the tournament with Europe, South America and the Orient.
“The tournament is proud of its champions, some of the most distinguished players in golf’s history. In addition to Arnold Palmer; Jack Nicklaus, Bernhard Langer, Johnny Miller Greg Norman, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Davis Love III and the late Payne Stewart are just a few of the names inscribed upon our champions’ trophy.”
The RBC Heritage is more than just a golf tournament to Hilton Head Island residents, as it brings in around $80 million to South Carolina each year. All of the funds that are raised during the tournament are distributed to those in need throughout our area. Since 1987, more than $23 million has been donated to hundreds of organizations.
“Harbour Town Golf Links is recognized as one of America’s top courses, and is repeatedly selected by the PGA TOUR professionals as one of their favorites. It was named one of the top 20 courses in the country by Golf Digest and Golf Weekly, named #14 among America’s 100 Greatest courses you can play by Golf Digest, and named #39 in Best 75 golf resorts in North America.”
