Hilton Head Island has celebrated the Heritage since 1969.  While golf is the main attraction, the RBC Heritage is a tradition where we gather together to enjoy the rites of spring.  It is a time when Islanders, tourists, touring pros and volunteers enjoy azaleas in full bloom, new and old friendships, fabulous weather and a week full of fun.  The Heritage is much more than just great golf, its about tradition.

The RBC Heritage has an energy that is both electric and addictive.  Everyone including the players feel good here! The events during Heritage will include private parties along the fairways, parties in Harbourtown, hanging out with friends,  big corporate sky boxes and one of South Carolina’s longest running Tournaments.  This year we will have over 100,000 attend the celebration!
