Hilton Head Debuts First Golf and Tennis Festival for 2014

If there are two sports Hilton Head Island is famous for, it’s certainly golf and tennis, and now there’s a brand new festival dedicated just to these two sports. We think it’s going to be hugely popular!

This year’s inaugural Hilton Head Island Golf & Tennis Festival will run February 27-March 2, 2014, a great time to visit the island when the crowds have not yet arrived but the weather is mild. The average highs in February and March range from low to upper 60’s, making it the perfect time not to break a sweat playing golf or tennis.

The festival will take place at a variety of golf and tennis venues across the island, including the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club and Sea Pines Resort.

Golfers can participate in the Hilton Head Cup Pro-Am Tournament, a PGA Carolinas-sanctioned event, that pairs one golf professional with three amateurs. The tournament takes place over two days, alternating play at Harbour Town Golf Links and Heron Point Golf Course both located at the Sea Pines Resort.

Lastly, if you need to “gear up” for spring, the Fashion Show Luncheon and Silent Auction on Feb. 28 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. is your chance. See the latest sports fashions for on and off the course and courts as modeled by local celebrities.

“It’s a great time of year to play golf or tennis on the island. You can still take advantage of some outstanding off-season rates for golf, tennis and accommodations – and the weather is absolutely great!” says Keith Bach, festival president and PGA professional. “There isn’t anything else similar to the Hilton Head Island Golf & Tennis Festival anywhere in the country.”
