Although Spring seems far off here in the Ottawa area, Spring is in full bloom south of the border on Hilton Head Island. From the Robert Trent Jones Course at Palmetto Dunes to Heron Point by Pete Dye at The Sea Pines Resort. The courses are amazing places to play this game of golf we love. Nothing like being able to swing the clubs early before our season opens here in Ottawa. Next Spring I know where I'm booking my Spring Getaway.
