Wyndham Vacation Rentals Expands Relationship with RBC Heritage for ResortQuest Sponsorship

ResortQuest Hilton Head offers vacation rental accommodations along the Harbour Town Golf Links course and within close proximity to the action in Sea Pines for the 44th RBC Heritage

Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professionally managed vacation rental business, has broadened its relationship with the RBC Heritage golf tournament, being held April 9-15 at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, one of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), has signed on in 2012 as a sponsor for the general spectator bleachers on the world-famous 18th green, which is located across the marina from the iconic Harbour Town lighthouse, and as a sponsor for the lively tip-up seats along the driving range.

Now under the banner of its new title sponsor, the RBC Heritage boasts a decades-long tradition of championship golf in Hilton Head Island. Recognized as one of America’s top courses and long considered a player favorite, the Pete Dye-designed Harbour Town Golf Links is located at 11 Lighthouse Lane near the southernmost tip of the island. Admission prices start at $35 for a Practice Round Ticket, and tickets may be purchased online at RBCHeritage.com/tickets.php.


“As one of the largest providers of vacation rental accommodations on Hilton Head Island, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals believes strongly in supporting the Island’s major events and other charitable organizations," said Cheryl Spezia, vice president of sales & marketing, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals. “And by sponsoring these types of events, it provides our guests with an opportunity to attend a premier PGA TOUR event while vacationing in one of these comfortable properties.”

As a proud sponsor of the RBC Heritage, ResortQuest Hilton Head is offering two complimentary bike rentals with a week-long stay during the tournament. This special offer is available on seven-night stays from Saturday, April 7 through Monday, April 16, 2012. To book RBC Heritage accommodations with ResortQuest, guests should call 855-761-2042. Availability is limited, and some restrictions may apply.

ResortQuest Hilton Head professionally manages more than 300 vacation rentals on Hilton Head Island with a range of property types, from oceanfront private homes to villas with golf course views. Available amenities, such as fully equipped kitchens and spacious living areas make ResortQuest vacation rentals an excellent choice for families traveling to the tournament, and numerous ResortQuest-managed properties are available along the RBC Heritage course or within close proximity of the tournament action.

Examples of currently available lodging include a seven-night stay in a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath Sea Pines villa for less than $3,000 including taxes and fees, or a 2-bedroom, 2-bath villa in Sea Pines with ocean views for $2,306. Learn more about these and other available vacation rentals online.

All ResortQuest guests enjoy discounted golf rates at the island's top courses, including Sea Pines, Shipyard, Port Royal and Palmetto Dunes. While tee times are unavailable for Harbour Town Golf Links during the RBC Heritage, guests still may play two other notable Sea Pines courses during the week: the Ocean Course and Heron Point by Pete Dye.

The host organization of the RBC Heritage is the Heritage Classic Foundation, a non-profit organization whose driving force is to improve lives. According to the Heritage Classic Foundation, every dollar of profit generated by RBC Heritage, The Players Amateur and The Junior Heritage is distributed to charitable organizations. Since 1987, more than $20 million has been distributed to South Carolina and Georgia non-profits in need.

The mission of the Heritage Classic Foundation is to provide the highest quality PGA TOUR golf event that generates significant economic impact and promotion for South Carolina while contributing funds for local charitable causes that enhance the quality of life of all. Since it was founded as a 501(c)(3) in 1987, the Foundation has donated more than $22 million to people in need.
