Your company is merging, or launching a new product, or celebrating the crushing of the annual sales goal. Your job is to design an off-site that brings people together, celebrates the wins and sets everyone up for more amazing advances to come. But you don’t have a lot of time to manage all the details. Relax, a quick trip to South Carolina’s Lowcountry can check all of your strategic boxes. Try one of these approaches with the executive team and feel all the tension leave your body.

Combine Business and Fresh Air for Stronger Returns. A day on the green introduces friendly competition and encourages camaraderie. Hilton Head Island is home to three premier golf courses designed by the sport’s elite visionaries. Bonus: These open spaces are certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries so fresh air and fresh ideas go with the territory.

Golf packages often include luxurious accommodations, tee times, tournament set-up and refreshments. Easy access from the board room to the putting green makes business a pleasure.

Build Teams on the Beach. Nothing gets people out of their nine-to-five routine like toes hitting sand. Whether your team-building includes piling everyone onto jet skis, into kayaks or on an epic fishing expedition, easy access to water and wide-open spaces can bring people together around shared goals.

Bonus: Lowcountry boasts comfortable weather year-round, but a visit in the summer when endangered loggerhead sea turtles climb onto shore to lay their eggs is an unforgettable sight. Incorporate beach cleanup programs in your agenda to add meaningful team effort to the equation.

Soak It Up. Meetings set against a backdrop of storied greens and crashing waves are just more productive. That is why for four decades groups have headed to Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa for annual meetings, incentive programs and ultimate team building. This escape north of Savannah along the scenic Atlantic Coast offers refreshing Lowcountry relaxation and all the conveniences of an urban office.
