Palmetto Dunes Resort - Fazio Course
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina | 18 holes | Par: 70 | 6873 yards
Originally opened in 1974, the Fazio course at Palmetto Dunes Resort underwent a major renovation in 1994, helping to create a course that is consistently in excellent condition and as challenging a test for golfers in Hilton Head.
With just two par fives on the course, Fazio has designed a layout that's heavily populated with par fours, including the 462-yard No. 18 hole, which will take two well-hit and placed shots to have a birdie attempt.
"A Fazio course will always present a golfer with plenty of challenges," said a TravelGolf.com writer. "At Palmetto Dunes, those challenges are in the par fours."
In all, the course measures out at 6,873 yards from the tips with a slope rating of 138. Consistently ranked as one of the nation's Top-100 courses by Golf Digest, the Fazio Course is looked at as one of the more challenging runs in Hilton Head, and one of Fazio's more impressive works.
