Heron Point at Sea Pines Resort tops Power Rankings for the week of Aug. 17

With Harbour Town Golf Links under the knife for a summer renovation, its sister course at Sea Pines Resort, Heron Point , has picked up the slack. The Pete Dye design in Hilton Head Island, S.C. leads the latest Golf Advisor Power Rankings with stellar marks across the board.

Part of the elevated experience at Sea Pines, in addition to some recently softened and enlarged greens, is a stately brand new clubhouse.

"I can't believe this is the same course I played a few years ago," Gsabert wrote . "Upon entering the brand new clubhouse and locker room I felt like I was at an exclusive high end private club. The place is gorgeous."

Upon buying Sea Pines in 2005, Charles Goodwin promised heavy investment into the property. A decade on, the resort boasts two new golf clubhouses and beach clubs, and the courses are next on the agenda.
It's cooler, accommodations are more affordable, and the kids are in school, not hogging the hot tub at the beach-side condos.
Sewailo Golf Club, Notah Begay III/Ty Butler-design located at the Pascua Yaqui Tribe's Casino Del Sol Resort, is the first course to open in Tucson since the Golf Club at Dove Mountain, former home to the WGC-Accenture Match Play. Sewailo is more parkland than typical Arizona target golf, David R. Holland writes. It features multiple streams and creeks with four waterfalls designed to be as natural looking as possible, and is loaded with more than 30,000 plants and native flowers.
