Inn & Club at Harbour Town receives Forbes Four-Star Award

The Inn & Club at Harbour Town—the acclaimed 60-room boutique hotel at The Sea Pines Resort—has been honored with the prestigious 2016 Forbes Four-Star Award in recognition of its exceptional level of luxury and service.

This is the 58th annual list of Forbes Travel Guide’s Star Rating winners—the global benchmark for hotels, restaurants and spas. Expert, anonymous inspectors visit thousands of properties annually to evaluate standards, quality, value and overall experience. The Inn & Club at Harbour Town is the only Four-Star hotel on Hilton Head and one of only 411 hotels worldwide to achieve this coveted honor.

As its primary amenity, the hotel features the famed Harbour Town Golf Links, site of the PGA Tour’s annual RBC Heritage, and known worldwide as the first-ever golf course design by Jack Nicklaus in a collaboration with Pete Dye. The course is ranked by Golf Digest as one of the top-20 Greatest Public Golf Courses for 2015-2016. Golf Magazine ranked it one of the 10 Most Influential Designs You Can Play in 2015. The esteemed layout has also been frequently included in Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses since it opened for play in 1969.

The magnificent new Harbour Town Clubhouse, which debuted renovations in March 2015, is just a short stroll away. The 44,000-square-foot multiuse structure features a comfortable living room lounge, a first-class American grill with indoor/outdoor seating and sweeping golf course views, a signature pro shop and retail display, wrap-around terraces with covered porches, state-of-the-art 4,000-square-foot locker room, and an elegant 2,200-square-foot banquet and event room.

“The Inn and Club at Harbour Town continues to set the gold standard for luxury hotels in our region,” said Steve Birdwell, president. “Our superior customer service and elegantly appointed rooms combine to make us one of the ultimate getaway destinations in the U.S.”
