Hilton Head Island does not have any professional or amateur sports teams; however, if you love golf, be sure to visit in April when the famous Heritage Golf Tournament takes place. This tournament is one of the most-loved stops on the PGA Tour each year and has been a staple on the schedule since 1969. Famous golfers like Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Davis Love III have played here, with Nicklaus serving as a design consultant for the magnificent course. For a little swing-and-a-miss action, you can also watch minor league baseball in Savannah, Georgia, located about an hour from Hilton Head Island and home of the Sand Gnats minor league team.
