RBC Heritage TicketsThe RBC Heritage tournament is held annually in Hilton Head, S.C. In the 1960s, there was little tourism and no golf on the island until the Heritage tournament got started. Both Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus committed to the inaugural Heritage tournament, boosting this PGA-level tournament’s profile and popularity. Palmer won the first tournament, then known as the Heritage Classic. This was his first win in over a year and brought the media’s attention to the tournament. There have been plenty of changes to the RBC Heritage over the years. Originally, it was played in November over Thanksgiving weekend. Currently, the tournament is played in April, about a week after the Masters Tournament, at the legendary Augusta National golf course. Throughout its history, the Heritage has showcased some of the greatest talent in professional golf. Find your RBC Heritage tickets at StubHub.
