Get Your Plaid On! at the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament

golfThe tradition continues April 15-21, 2019 when the biggest names on the PGA tour return to the Harbour Town Golf Links in The Sea Pines Resort for the 51st annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.

Spectators get up close to professional golfers at the RBC Heritage.

In 2018, Satoshi Kodaira captured his first PGA Tour victory at the RBC Heritage with a 25-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to defeat Si Woo Kim, adding his name to the prestigious list of tournament champions which includes Stewart Cink, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell, Davis Love III, Aaron Baddeley, Boo Weekley, Branden Grace, Wesley Bryan, Payne Stewart, Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Hale Irwin and Tom Watson. The Tokyo native will defend his title at the 2019 event, in hopes of earning a second tartan jacket and the winner’s share of the $6.9 million prize purse.

Charitable organizations, the arts, medical institutions and college scholarship funds also win annually at the RBC Heritage, thanks to the nonprofit Heritage Classic Foundation, general tournament sponsor. Since its founding in 1987, the Foundation has distributed $41 million to those in need, including $3.3 million in 2018.

Following on the heels of the Masters Tournament at Augusta National, the RBC Heritage has been a favorite of players, spectators and sponsors since Arnold Palmer clinched the title at the inaugural tournament in 1969. South Carolina’s only PGA Tour event is still played on the legendary Harbour Town Golf Links, designed by Pete Dye in consultation with Jack Nicklaus.

“Get Your Plaid On” this April with a variety of daily and weekly RBC Heritage ticket packages available at rbcheritage.com or by calling the tournament office at (843) 671-2448.
