- Harbour Town is one of the shortest PGA Tour events. It is nearly 230 yards shorter than the average course length of other PGA Tour events.
- Do not let the length of this course lull you into a sense of comfort – with small greens and a narrow margin of error on each hole, what the course lacks in length, it compensates by requiring control and accuracy.
- Harbour Town was ranked #2 in a Golf Digest survey named “Top 10 PGA Tour Courses” – second only to Augusta National.
- The course is regularly featured in Golf Digests, “100 Greatest Courses,” list.
