Owner description: Hilton Head Island’s only par-70 public golf course is located in Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort and was recently named the South Carolina Golf Course of the Year by the SC Golf Course Owners Association. The layout offers an exhilarating experience and is revered as the island’s truest championship challenge. For beginners and advanced players, the Fazio course offers an exceptional golf experience.

There are three golf courses in Palmetto Dunes and my husband and I have played them numerous times. This one, however, is the one we choose to play the majority of the time. (We find that the Arthur Hills course is our least favorite with the people working in the golf shop very snooty).

The greens on Fazio are almost always in excellent shape. For women, it is considered the hardest of the three courses but I personally like it. Only on one hole is it pretty difficult for a woman to get over the water (if you are not a really good golfer) but I have personally made it over twice so it is doable and I am just a second year golfer and not a natural athlete.

There is beautiful scenery everywhere you look and, if nothing else, you will leave with a wonderful feeling after playing this magnificent course.

One of the other nice features is the really nice staff, both professionals and otherwise. The selection of golf apparel is also pretty good. There always seems to be a large selection of new things and things on sale for 40 and 50 percent off (and that includes the women's apparel).

Of course, I am prejudiced as I think Palmetto Dunes is one of the most beautiful places in the world, with the weather here good enough to golf and play tennis every day of the year -- and bike, walk, kayak, you name it!

Spending the month on HHI and had my first golf outing yesterday. Decided to play the George Fazio Course at Palmetto Dunes as it is sthe local course for the villa we are renting. The fairways were being over seeded so it was cart path only so the round went a bit slower than normal. The condition of the greens were excellent and not too fast. They were very firm however.

A few very scenic holes and only two par 5's. There were a couple of the par 4's that played like par 5's though.

Green fees are in line with the other courses on the island.

Staff were friendly.

Played on Mother's Day. There was nobody out there, The staff warned us several times of the new greens (areas where seams were still visible) but we still played. Was very surprised at how outstanding the shape the course was in. This is the cheapest of the Palmetto Dunes courses, but the experience was no cheaper. I think it cost us 60 bucks at 1 o clock. Only complaint is that some sand traps were inconsistent (at least one was rocky underneath). Still, had much improved since our last trip 2 years ago. Was also much better than the Braony course at Port Royal for the same price. Will be back for sure.
