Matt Ginella on where to play golf on Hilton Head Island

It's a buyers market in the American destination golf scene, and the wealth of competition has led to significant upgrades and improvements on Hilton Head Island.

That is certainly true at RBC Heritage host Sea Pines Resort, home to Harbour Town Golf Links, which opened a brand new clubhouse and was entirely re-grassed in 2015 and is one of many of the ongoing upgrades at the island's iconic resort.

That's not the only place to play on this golf-rich island however. Palmetto Dunes Resort is another 54-hole resort worth staying at, while there are other daily-fee and semi-private facilities worth playing as well.

I detail a collection of the best places to play in this Morning Drive segment with Lauren Thompson.

Can you recommend one of the courses for mid level playing ladies? We will be on the island for a private yoga retreat and want to break away one day for 18 hours. March 2-march 10,2018
