“The dates were November 27-30, 1969, Thanksgiving Weekend, and innovative Sea Pines designer Charles Fraser gave the first tournament on the newly created Harbour Town Golf Links a traditional twist by calling it the “Heritage Classic”.Back then, nearly everyone had to reach for a map to discover Hilton Head’s whereabouts. Would anyone show up on Thanksgiving Weekend, especially to a remote, unknown spot? And would the world’s top golfers want to be challenged by a new, unfamiliar course?Still the best in the game came. The King, Arnold Palmer, and the equally great Jack Nicklaus, who helped design Harbour Town along with young Pete Dye, were among the first to commit.Then, good fortune smiled on the Harbour Town Golf Links when Palmer went on to win that initial Heritage, his first victory in 14 months, and the media did the rest by cranking out volume of glowing copy about Arnold’s victory, Dye’s superb, new links course as well as Hilton Head Island.”
