HILTON HEAD ISLAND, GA (November 6, 2013) – The inaugural Hilton Head Island Golf & Tennis Festival will make its debut February 27 – March 2, 2014. The Festival will take place at a variety of golf and tennis venues throughout the Island, including The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club and the Sea Pines Resort.
According to Keith Bach, Festival President and PGA Professional, “It’s a great time of year to play golf or tennis on the Island. You can still take advantage of some outstanding off-season rates for golf, tennis and accommodations – and the weather is absolutely great! There isn’t anything else similar to the Hilton Head Island Golf & Tennis Festival anywhere in the country. The vision and plans for the 2015 Festival are currently underway to include a large-scale consumer Expo and many more activities and events for various levels of golf and tennis enthusiasts to enjoy the Island.” The event will certainly grow to be a golf & tennis tourism destination event, providing an economic boon to Hilton Head Island in what’s commonly known as a slower time of year.
