In 2023, the rack rate for Harbour Town Golf Links was $195 in the shoulder season and $370 in peak season, which is the bulk of the year, including just around the RBC Heritage and the fall. The green fee can change dynamically, however, based on time of year and demand to play the course that day. You're typically paying top dollar for a facility that sees a lot of play given the price point. The green fee includes cart and range balls.

In 2024, the resort really doesn't have a rack rate. It's all done dynamically, so your best course of action is to contact the facility and see about rates or book online, particularly through a package with Sea Pines.
