Heron Point by Pete Dye

A Modern Masterpiece

Designed by the late, legendary course architect Pete Dye, this golf course challenges golfers with risk-reward long and short holes. The fairways move toward and away from hazards and Dye’s ubiquitous mounding and swales framing target areas make this a must-play course.

A wonderfully scenic opening hole with a bunker and water lining the right side of the fairway. A drive to the right center of the fairway will leave a mid-iron to a green guarded by bunkers on the right.

This short par four is more demanding than it appears. A conservative play of a long iron or hybrid metal leaves a short iron to a tricky elevated green. Beware of the bunker awaiting an over-aggressive shot behind the green.

A demanding drive avoiding bunkers on the left side of this straight away par four will set you up for a second shot to a narrow, well-guarded elevated green.

This is one of the most challenging short holes on all of Hilton Head Island. The green is guarded short and left by bunkers and short and right by water. Wind conditions determine club selection.

This sharp, dogleg right requires a well-struck tee shot to open an approach angle to the green. A conservative tee shot to the left leaves a long approach. Flirting with the right side is tricky as overhanging trees guard the corner.

This long par five favors a drive that avoids the pond and bunker on the right. Long hitters will have a chance to reach this green in two, while others will lay up, leaving a demanding shot to a well-guarded undulating green.

This deceptive par three demands that your tee shot find the green, otherwise your short game will get a workout. A large, wood-lined bunker awaits any errant tee shots.

This difficult par four requires an accurate tee shot short of the bunkers on the far side of the fairway. Long hitters can attempt to cut the corner leaving a shorter iron to a narrow green.

This sharp dogleg left par five requires that players hit their tee ball far enough to reach the corner. A second shot avoiding the sand and water on the right will leave an approach to one of the larger greens on the course. Pay attention to pin location to avoid a long putt.

This short par four may have the long hitters smiling, but a tee shot in the fairway is a must. An accurate second shot to this blind green will leave a good opportunity for a birdie.

Avoiding the cross bunker on this dogleg left par five is a must. A controlled second shot to avoid the bunkers will leave an approach to one of the easier greens on the course. However, a bunker guards the right side and shots missing left will run into a collection area leaving a tricky pitch.

This slight dogleg right par four requires a drive that avoids the bunker running up the right side. A second shot that stays right of the bunker complex on the left will leave a good chance for par.

This dramatic par three is a beautiful hole. Changing winds and numerous pin placements make each shot on this hole a new experience. Any shot that misses left will find your ball in a watery grave.

Water runs the entire length of the right side of this short par four. A drive down the left side will leave a short iron to a green guarded right and long by a bunker.

Another demanding par four doglegs slightly to the right. Avoid the bunkers on the right and a long approach to a very narrow, undulating green awaits. Par is a great score on this hole.

A shot favoring the left side of this demanding par three will avoid bunkers on the right and give you a chance to make three or better. Take an extra club to compensate for an elevated green.

A great par five that tempts players to cut the corner. With out of bounds on the right, the risk outweighs the rewards. A shot avoiding the bunker on the right will leave the longer hitter a chance to reach this green in two and shorter hitters a better angle to lay up.

Our picturesque 18th will have you feeling like you are one down with one to play. Overcome your nerves with a tee shot that avoids the bunker running along the water. An accurate approach to a narrow looking green will give you a chance to end your round on a high note.
