This month, Hilton Head Island’s Signature sporting event and its largest outdoor cocktail party will happen at the same time and place. The Verizon Heritage Golf Tournament, the Pga’s only stop in South Carolina, has been categorized as both. indeed, depending on who’s talking, it is.
A number of world-class golfers, including two-time winner Boo Weekley, will bring their best game for the world to watch. But many attendees will never see any golf. Most of that group won’t know the names of any of the golfers competing, some won’t know the diference between a tee and a green, and a few won’t know or care who won until long after the tartan plaid jacket has been awarded. (“What plaid jacket?” they will ask.)
But that’s OK. They go for the party, and they spend a lot of money. Harbour Town will be party central for the entire week, especially april 17-19.
