PGA Tour venue wrecked by hurricane

2016 10 Hilton Head
PGA TOUR | RBC HERITAGE

Clean-up operations are underway at a PGA Tour venue after it was wrecked by Hurricane Matthew.


Harbour Town Golf Links, on the Hilton Head Island peninsula in South Carolina, has hosted the RBC Heritage every year since 1969 and was ravaged by the storm, facing 90mph winds and a surge of 12-and-a-half feet.

“In Sea Pines , there are a lot of trees on houses, a lot of water behind the new Plantation Club," said town manager Steve Riley. "Harbour Town appears to have taken a hard hit."

Riley’s comments were further evidenced by these pictures and videos posted on social media:









With the RBC Heritage scheduled for April 11-14 this year, a week after The Masters, lets hope everything will be very much back to normal by then.
