About Our Host Facility:
PALMETTO DUNES - ARTHUR HILLS COURSE: The Arthur Hills golf course at Palmetto Dunes blends the
topographic beauty of the Lowcountry with the inherent challenges of the game to produce a unique golfing experience in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
The picture-perfect setting of this mature course stands apart as a time-honored favorite with golfers and attracts dozens of species of birds
as well as alligators and deer. In addition, the course is home to one of the Lowcountry's most historic lighthouses, the Hilton Head Range Light Station,
which guided ships into Port Royal Sound beginning in the late 1800's.
