  • A little sand http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Branden-Oliver-Chargers-Jersey/ , a little surf, and a lot of golf. That's the recipe for the week of April 14-20th 2008 on Hilton Head Island, otherwise known as Verizon Heritage week around these parts. If your are headed this way as a Heritage player or spectator, let it be known that Hilton Head knows what hospitality and a good time is all about - on and off the greens. Check out this guide to the best of Hilton Head Island, and let the good times roll!

     

    The Verizon Heritage Golf Tournament has been played on the famed Harbour Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head Island, SC every year since 1969. The host course was designed by Pete Dye, with input from Jack Nicklaus. Known to locals as "The Heritage", South Carolina's only PGA TOUR event has been scheduled during the week following the Masters since 1983. This year's Verizon Heritage will be April 14 -20, 2008.

     

    The tournament's Pro-Am is a great way to entertain clients as well as spend time with a PGA professional. The price for the Pro-Am event includes a free round of golf, eight clubhouse badges http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Antonio-Gates-Chargers-Jersey/ , weekly parking pass, gift packages, and much more. The Heritage Classic Foundation is the general sponsor of the tournament. The local support of generous sponsors, helpful volunteers, and countless spectators make this a must attend event every year. Since it was founded in 1987 as a not-for-profit organization, the Foundation has helped thousands of people in need throughout the area and state. In 2007, the Heritage Classic Foundation was honored to donate $1.8 million dollars, bringing the total to more than $16.6 million since it was organized. Past winners of the Heritage include Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Payne Stewart http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Andre-Williams-Chargers-Jersey/ , Greg Norman, Nick Price, Hale Irwin, Davis Love III, and Jack Nicklaus. A record purse of $5.5 million dollars, with $990,000 going to the winner, makes this year's tournament win more sought after than ever.

     

    If you've never played at Harbourtown, give yourself a treat and come in a few days early or stay a few days after the tournament to get in a round at this much hailed course. Just walking up the green on the 18th will make you feel like tipping your hat to the invisible crowd.

     

    But, contrary to popular belief http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/ , man (and woman) cannot live by golf alone. Hilton Head Island has made it pretty easy to enjoy every moment you are here on our little paradise, from relaxing in great accommodations to hopping on a dolphin tour to getting a champion level massage. So during your trip to experience the Heritage, experience some of these offerings also:

     

    Hilton Head Accommodation Options

     

    Hilton Head Island is a highly sought after resort destination, so it goes without saying that there are plenty of great places to stay, but I will say it anyway - there are plenty of great places to stay on Hilton Head Island. Luxury Hotels, golf villas, ocean front homes, whatever your style, it can be found here.

     

    For great ocean front hotel accommodations, there is the Westin Resort and Spa http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Tyrell-Williams-Chargers-Jersey/ , the Hilton Oceanside Resort and the Marriott Resort and Spa, along with a host of several smaller or less expensive choices for your stay. The Holiday Inn Oceanfront is a nice choice for families, with plenty of white sand beach on which to run and play, while claiming one of the more famous watering holes on the island - namely the Tiki Hut. For a more quiet and yes, romantic respite, the Main Street Inn is quaint, beautifully decorated and brimming with hospitality. Hotel rooms are at a premium during the Heritage, and as expected the prices are higher as well. Don't let that scare you - it's not that much more. Besides, you deserve it.

     

    A vacation rental home or villa in Hilton Head is another great way to go when visiting the island during the Heritage. It affords you some additional privacy, extra space http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Travis-Benjamin-Chargers-Jersey/ , and amazing luxury, if you choose. If you are all about golf, choose a villa on your course of choice. Go watch the pros, then come back to your villa, unpack the cooler, and head out to apply all you learned to your own game. There are also stunning ocean front homes to consider, especially if you are bringing the gang. Private pools and hot tubs, designer decor, gourmet kitchens plus private chefs and maid service are just some of the amenities awaiting you and your very best friends or favorite family members. The island has numerous rental management companies from which to choose, some of the most reliable being Island Getaway http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Stevie-Johnson-Chargers-Jersey/ , Resort Rentals of Hilton Head Island, The Vacation Company, ResortQuest, Coastal Home and Villa Rentals and 800BeachMe.

     

    Probably your best bet would be to go to the most popular web site for vacation rentals which features the top one thousand rental homes and condos on Hilton Head Island, Hilton Head Rentals, and let the experts do the work for you. A stress-free Heritage experience is what you are looking for, right?

     

    After a day in the sun at Harbour Town, a fun night on the island is around every corner (wait, islands don't have corners, do they?) Anyway http://www.chargersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Sean-Lissemore-Chargers-Jersey/ , the choices for your night time activities is endless on Hilton Head. There are several sports bars to relive the day's tournament activities and have a cold Barley Pop (that's beer for you non-midwesterners) For some sweet sounds, check out the Jazz Corner in the Village at Wexford. My choice for people watching is the upscale Metropolitan, where the Martini is king and golf shirts are not, or the gritty Ryders, where the abundance of leather clothing and vodka shots will make you not mind the really loud music. Shelter Cove has a number of places right on the water that you can walk to. And if you are fe Chanel Pu.
