South Carolina's Sea Pines Resort accommodations for RBC Heritage

HILTON HEAD, S.C. -- The Sea Pines Resort - with over 300 villas and 100 rental homes -- is the official accommodation provider for the PGA TOUR's RBC Heritage held on its famed Harbour Town Golf Links, April 17 - 20.

Most Sea Pines stay options provide for a quick walk to the action on Harbour Town, stress-free parking, convenience to the resort's world-class amenities as well as golf at Heron Point by Pete Dye and the Ocean Course - its two additional outstanding 18s open for play during the event.

When asked why Sea Pines is a favorite PGA TOUR stop, Matt Kuchar says, "Everyone seems to stay within the confines of Sea Pines. I don't know of any other place on tour where people don't leave the general resort area."

"This is one of the tour's top events because of Sea Pines Resort," adds Brandt Snedeker. "It's such a relaxing atmosphere. We all rent homes here for our families, go bike riding and to the beach. It's a great place to unwind."

Luke Donald, sponsored by RBC, says "This tournament at Sea Pines has such a great feel as it's a family-oriented event."

"It's a chilled-out environment and great social atmosphere," says 2013 RBC Heritage winner Graeme McDowell.

"Few PGA TOUR host sites offer as wide a range of deluxe accommodations with easy access to watch the world's best players tee it up," says John Munro, Vice-President of Hospitality, Sales and Marketing. "After golf, our incredible beaches, horseback riding, tennis, bicycling, and dining and nightlife options galore are all close by and waiting for our guests to have the time of their lives."

The Harbour Town Yacht Basin -- recognized as a premier yachting destination on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway -- is a lively gathering spot during the tournament week for both TOUR players and attendees. Dockage is available for boaters.
