Several things make the RBC Heritage Tournament at The Sea Pines Resort unique. History is hugely important, as this is one of the longest running tournaments, now in its 45th year. It traditionally attracts a very strong field with most of the country’s and many of the world’s best payers. It is run by a charity, the Heritage Classic Foundation, and as a result has distributed more than $23 million since 1987. But most importantly it has reputation as being extremely fan friendly. Many golf tournaments are in hard to reach places, almost like going to a stadium event, where you sit in traffic, arrive, watch and leave. Guests on Hilton Head get to enjoy all the normal vacation things — beach, riding bikes, tennis, great food and even playing golf — in addition to the tournament itself, which is well staffed by friendly volunteers. As a spectator it is hard to beat it.
