HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - The home of the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage tournament has reopened after $3.5 million of improvements this summer.

Harbour Town Golf Links closed in early May and re-opened to the public Monday. The course underwent several enhancements, including re-grassing of the tee boxes, fairways and rough with Celebration Bermuda turf. The greens at Harbour Town were also resurfaced with Tif-Eagle Bermuda, which been used since 2001.

There was also a new irrigation system installed.

Sea Pines vice president of sports and operations Cary Corbitt said the changes mean faster, firmer surfaces for patrons and PGA Tour members.

The RBC Heritage takes place April 14-17.
