August around Hilton Head Island’s Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is one of the most popular times of the year — and for good reason
(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.) — Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder and we know that opinions are like … well … let's just say everyone has one. But if you were to suggest that August on Hilton Head Island and around its renowned Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is your favorite month of the year, you would most assuredly not be alone.
What’s not to like about August in the Lowcountry? The dog day’s of summer have come and gone, and temperatures on the island have locked themselves in the pleasant 80s during the day, and the 60s at night, perfect weather for golf, tennis, beach, biking — you name it. Meanwhile, the kids are back at school or they are headed that way soon, so the hustle and bustle of the summer months on Hilton Head have given way to nothing but soothing relaxation.
Little wonder Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head is one of the most popular vacation resort venues for today's active families and for groups ranging in size up to 250 or more. Offering a wide variety of South Carolina vacation rentals, the revered oceanfront vacation resort is nestled in the heart of the South Carolina Lowcountry and was named the No. 1 Family Resort in the United States and Canada by Travel + Leisure Family magazine. Forbes magazine ranked it among the Forbes Top 10 Luxury Family Resorts.
Speaking of awards, the Robert Trent Jones Course at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort was recently joined by the Hills Course among the 30 selected for the 2015 “Best You Can Play” list by the South Carolina Golf Rating Panel. The South Carolina Golf Panel is composed of 125 golf enthusiasts that represent a diverse range of occupations, handicaps, and backgrounds.
The Jones Course, which boasts one of only two oceanfront holes on the island, was named South Carolina’s 2003 “Golf Course of the Year.” Not to be outdone, in 2009, the Hills Course earned the same honor. Last but not least, the underrated Fazio Course completed the resort’s hat trick last year when it was named 2014 “South Carolina Golf Course of the Year.”
In May, Palmetto Dunes became the first resort in the Carolinas and along the East Coast to offer the revolutionary new “Golf Bike,” allowing golfers to enjoy PD’s trio of award-winning courses playing by pedaling from hole to hole versus taking a golf cart or hoofing it. Palmetto Dunes received nine of the first 100 Golf Bikes delivered, giving golfers the ability to play at the speed of a cart while getting paid back with fun and fitness.
