Featuring three separate golf courses, Palmetto Dunes Golf Club offers a spectacular oceanfront backdrop in Hilton Head Island, but when it comes to delivering a challenging round of golf in Hilton Head, SC, some courses should take a lesson from this young course. The George Fazio Course at Palmetto Dunes is one of the youngest courses to ever appear on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Best.”
Hilton Head Island’s only par-70 public golf course, the George Fazio course was named the 2014 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.
The par-70 layout offers stimulating challenges. The heart of the course lies in a series of long par 4s, beginning with the 432-yard first hole and ending with the 462-yard 18th hole.
The tree-lined fairways roll gently on the front nine, while the back nine offers tighter shots that require strategic positioning off the tee. With relatively small greens and undulating surfaces, the Fazio course challenges and delights golfers.
Golfers especially enjoy the challenge of the fabulous finishing four holes, three well-bunkered par 4s and the great par-3 17th over water with out-of-bounds creeping in from the left. With new state-of-the-art Diamond Zoysia greens, the Fazio Course delivers a peak golf experience.
