November on Hilton Head: 3 Great Reason for a Golf Getaway Now!


As if you needed another reason to thank God you live in the South, we’re going to give you three words that sum it up beautifully: Year. Round. Golf.

Well, our Yankee brethren are forced to retreat from the course as the month of November sends the mercury dropping, we here in the genteel South are free to tee up to our hearts’ content. In fact, there are few better times to get out on the course than November: For starters, the humidity is kept to a somewhat manageable level, meaning you don’t need to stress test the moisture-wicking capabilities of your golf shirt. Second, the cooler air tends to make the no see ‘ums a little lethargic (NOTE: it does not eliminate them completely. Nothing does). But the biggest reason is our area’s golf mecca, Hilton Head Island, enters its most beautiful time of year in November. The summer crush of visitors has faded, leaving the island still crackling with energy but somewhat easier to get around. The streets, once jammed with minivans from Ohio, are yours. So as you plan your November golf trip to the island, let us guide you in creating your ideal golf getaway.


176 Mooring Buoy offers spectacular lagoon and golf views from every room! This spacious 5 bedrooms, 6 bathroom home with a heated pool is a 3-minute walk to the beach in Palmetto Dunes. The upscale touches throughout make this a premier vacation rental. The top level offers the second full kitchen, bar seating for 4, a dining table for 8, and an oversized living area with a wall of windows looking out at the gorgeous Robert Trent Jones course.



If you’re going to do a golf vacation on Hilton Head Island, do it right. Get the whole gang together and enjoy the spacious elegance of a vacation rental in paradise.The Vacation Company has over 300 properties to choose from including this beuaty,  176 Mooring Buoy is the kind of place your golf foursome (or moresome) will talk about for years. This home has 5 spacious bedrooms and 61/2 baths that will accommodate up to 12 guests. Every room enjoys lagoon views or views along Palmetto Dunes’ Robert Trent Jones course, with lush amenities at every turn creating a legendary getaway. The whole gang can unwind on the spacious deck surrounding a heated pool, with two levels of outdoor spaces giving everyone a quiet space to soak up the sun or come together as the party commences. Inside, luxurious touches from the gourmet kitchen to the lavishly appointed guest rooms let you live like a high roller in comfort and style.And while the weather might keep you out of the waves, this time of year is the perfect time for a stroll on the beach, which is easily accessed just a short walk from the property. 



As long as you’re on the beach, you’re just a short walk from one of Hilton Head Island’s best kept secrets. Coco’s On the Beach may be more of a summer hotspot, with its array of frozen drinks and sand volleyball court, but the cooler weather does have its advantages. Namely, you don’t have to wait as long to try some of the mouth-watering burgers and sandwiches they serve up. Each is made to order, and the menu is delightfully candid about the fact that wait times can get a little crazy during the summer. (PRO TIP: Try the fried bologna sandwich. It sounds crazy, and it is. Crazy delicious.)


Named South Carolina’s Golf Course of the Year, the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course is widely renowned for its open, inviting layout and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.



As long as you’re soaking in views of the Robert Trent Jones course, you may as well get out and play it, right? And now is one of the best times of the year to hit up one of the Southeast’s most famed courses. Not that there’s a bad time of year, but the greens fees get much friendlier on your wallet. While November prices haven’t been publicized yet, a round on RTJ was going for as low as $112.28 after taxes and cart fees during October. You can even save a few bucks by booking online
