One of the finest resort destinations in the world, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is truly a jewel in the crown of Hilton Head Island. Its 2,000 acres, nestled on three miles of sun-kissed Atlantic Ocean beachfront, provide the perfect venue for three world-class golf courses, an award-winning tennis center, and an 11-mile lagoon that invites guests in kayaks and canoes to share a pristine, natural environment with 40 species of birds and fish. Among Hilton Head resorts, Palmetto Dunes enjoys an illustrious reputation for creating unforgettable vacation experiences. This is luxury at its finest. Known as a world-class golf resort, Palmetto Dunes boasts three superbly crafted, challenging golf courses, each distinguished by its legendary designer and each showcasing the natural beauty of Hilton Head Island and the Low country of South Carolina. The renowned Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course was named 2003 Golf Course of the Year in South Carolina. The Arthur Hills Course, where golfing legends Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson honed their skills as collegiate athletes, is built on a series of rolling dunes with thick stands of palmetto trees lining the course. The George Fazio Course, named for its famous designer, was constructed with the help of his nephew, famed architect Tom Fazio.
