The RBC Heritage tournament is played over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links and is the only PGA TOUR stop annually in South Carolina. The field is made up of the finest golfers in the world.
The RBC Heritage, which for 2013 will return to its traditional week in April immediately following the Masters Tournament, has been an important element of South Carolina’s culture and economy since 1969, when it debuted at the Pete Dye-designed Harbour Town Golf Links. The course was designed by Pete Dye in consultation with Jack Nicklaus and carries with it a bit of Scottish aire. As well as its noted historic significance, Harbour Town is recognized annually as one of America's top courses, and is repeatedly selected by the PGA TOUR professionals as one of their favorites.
The tournament has a stellar list of past champions, including a number of World Golf Hall of Fame members: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Hale Irwin, Johnny Miller, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Nick Price, Bernhard Langer, Hubert Green and the late Payne Stewart. In 2011, Brandt Snedeker succeeded 2010 champion and Team RBC ambassador Jim Furyk by defeating Luke Donald on the third playoff hole.
RBC is title sponsor of PGA TOUR’s The Heritage and Boeing serves as local presenting sponsor.
