Why You Should Take A Hilton Head Golfing Trip In The Fall

South Carolina’s Best Golf Destination Gets Even Better In The Fall

The fall season is a perfect time to take a group golfing vacation at Hilton Head Island. From September through November you can still expect great conditions on the island, and you’ll get to avoid the large summer crowds on and off the course. And in case you weren’t aware, Hilton Head Island is home to over 30 championship golf courses for you to take a swing at during your trip.

So, smaller crowds, comfortable conditions, and an extensive selection of golf courses to choose from. Not a bad starting point for planning a great group golf vacation. Read on below to discover even more on why you should take your group golfing trip to Hilton Head Island this fall.

Ideal Conditions Across Every Hilton Head Golf Course

As mentioned above, there are over 30 championship courses at Hilton Head Island, earning Hilton Head the nickname of “Golf Island.” Of those many courses, the most famous is the Harbour Town Golf Links course at Sea Pines Resort. Harbour Town Links has hosted the annual RBC Heritage PGA tournament since 1969, and it is one of the finest US courses on the PGA Tour.

In the fall, this and other courses across the island are phenomenal to play at due to the exceptional weather conditions and lack of crowds to contend with. It’s easier to reserve tee times that you and your group want during this time, and you’ll encounter fewer groups on the course. We’ve all experienced the frustration of having slow groups in front or fast groups right behind on the golf course. Golfing at Hilton Head in the fall mitigates those little issues and allows your group the opportunity to completely enjoy every day on the course.

Great Fun To Be Had Off The Golf Course Too

Those excellent conditions during the fall don’t stop after you finish your round of golf. What you’re able to do between tee times is a major factor in the making of great golf getaways, and Hilton Head has plenty of fun things to do off the green.

Since weather conditions are still hovering in the 80s and high 70s through mid-October, early fall is still a great time to visit Hilton Head’s beaches. Taking an afternoon swim or just relaxing in a beach chair is a fine way to refresh after playing 18 holes. Also, fall is when Hilton Head sunrises and sunsets glow with their most vibrant colors, so be sure to come down at either end of the day for group vacation photos to remember your trip by.

PRO TIP: When you book a vacation rental with Relax Rentals, you’ll have access to great beach gear rentals like beach chairs, beach games, and bicycles. Head to our VayK Gear Rentals page to learn more about gear rental options included with your stay.

Delicious Seafood To Enjoy

Getting through multiple days with 18-hole rounds of golf mandates eating great food to stay energized. Trying fresh seafood is a must during any season here, and the options for seafood are arguably at their best during a fall vacation at Hilton Head.  

Locals say that any month that contains an “r” in its name yields the best oysters at Hilton Head. Since every fall month contains said letter, it’s the prime oyster season on the island. Additionally, shrimp is in season from late May through October, and snapper is in season from August through December. If those options aren’t enough for your golfing group, rest assured that you can always find great blue crab, clams, seabass, grouper, and swordfish to enjoy!

Last but not least, you should take your group golf trip to Hilton Head to stay in one of the many luxurious vacation homes spread across the island. We at Relax Rentals have rentals fit for any group and budget that will serve as great home bases for your Hilton Head golf experiences.
