1. The Course
Since 1969, the Heritage Golf Tournament has been held at the Harbour Town Golf Links course at Sea Pines Resort. Designed by famed golf course architect Pete Dye, Harbour Town features some of the world’s finest par threes. It even has a par-4 18th hole that’s one of the most feared in all of golf. A Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, this award-winning course is consistently rated one of the best in the U.S. by Golf Digest, GOLF Magazine, and Golfweek.
