Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island, S.C., has two new, state-of-the-art fleets of golf carts. www.palmettodunes.com
Produced by Club Car, the new fleets at Palmetto Dunes include golf carts equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS), as well as USB ports to charge cell phones and play music devices, proving that not only golf carts have come a long way, but so as a golf course’s tolerance for cell phones, music, etc.
In addition, Palmetto Dunes has added a dozen four-person golf carts that will serve a host of capabilities.
“We hope to get some foursomes out in the morning playing out of one cart, while also getting in some walking,” said longtime Palmetto Dunes Director of Golf Clark Sinclair. “In the afternoons, we can host some small corporate outings and scramble tournaments with all four players in the same golf cart. We think this will be very attractive to corporate event planners, as it allows an added sense of team and relationship building.”
Palmetto Dunes becomes one of the first golf resorts in the southeast and first in South Carolina to offer the four-person carts.
Palmetto Dunes features a trio of golf courses designed by three of the game’s most unique architects — Robert Trent Jones Sr., George Fazio and Arthur Hills — each of which have been awarded the Palmetto State’s “Golf Course of the Year” by the South Carolina Board of Directors of the National Golf Course Owners Association.
Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is a 2,000-acre resort destination located in the middle of Hilton Head Island, S.C., bounded by three miles of Atlantic Ocean beach on one side and a sheltered Intracoastal Waterway marina on the other.
The Mediterranean-style Shelter Cove Harbour, Hilton Head Island’s largest deep-water marina, across from Palmetto Dunes, features waterfront shopping and dining and a wide variety of charters, including nature cruises, dolphin tours, sport crabbing and fishing.
