HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- They may well be the most popular consecutive weeks in the entirety of the PGA TOUR season: The Masters (April 11-14) in Augusta, Ga., followed by the RBC Heritage (April 18-21) on Hilton Head Island.
Every year, PGA TOUR players rave not only about the comparisons between the tournaments and their world-class venues, but also the contrasts between the two settings: The formal "tradition like no other" of Augusta National and the more relaxed, family feel of Hilton Head Island.
Now golf fans can enjoy the same back-to-back championship golf experience as the pros with "The Ultimate PGA TOUR Experience" Package at the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.
Stay and play at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort during the Masters Tournament (143 miles northwest) or the RBC Heritage (minutes south) — or both — including accommodations and three rounds of world-class golf starting from $184 per person per night and available for stays through April 27, 2013 for this Hilton Head vacation deal.
In addition, golf vacation package participants are eligible, every night they stay at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, for a chance to win a pair of four-day RBC Heritage tickets with two VIP passes to the Resort's tournament SkyBox. The winner will be drawn on April 1 and notified the following day.

Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is showcased by its sterling trio of world-class golf courses designed by legends of the industry: The renowned Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course; the Arthur Hills Course, where collegiate stars like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson honed their talents; and the George Fazio Course, designed by George Fazio with construction work headed by his nephew, famed architect Tom Fazio.
Each of these outstanding layouts has been named South Carolina Golf Course of the Year and is rated four stars or better by Fodor's Golf Digest Places to Play. In addition, Golf Digest just named Hilton Head Island among America's Top 10 Best Buddies Golf Trips destinations and the resort offers popular stay-and-play group packages.
Always striving to remain ahead of the golf industry curve, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort has created a golf app for a golfer's smartphone that will answer questions in real time such as: "What's the best way to play this hole? How will I ever get around that sand trap?" Or perhaps, "I'm getting hungry. Wonder where can I get lunch or a cold drink after I get this hole-in-one?" Golfers can keep track of yardage with the app's built-in GPS and enter their score into a mobile scorecard that also allows them to engage in live competition with others in their group. Use the app to check information about each hole on each course (par, handicap and playing tips), and when you make that hole-in-one, the app makes it easy to brag about it on Facebook. Users can download this free app in their respective app stores by searching "Palmetto Dunes Golf."
Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort caters to golfers of all level. There are permanent junior tees on all three courses, and entertaining lessons and daily clinics are available from PGA professionals, as well as demonstrations and specialized programs, all under the direction of former PGA TOUR player Doug Weaver, Palmetto Dunes' highly respected Director of Instruction.
