HILTON HEAD ISLAND - Hilton Head Island is known for its plush golf courses. So perhaps it was no surprise when a hotel clerk used a golf club to chase away a would-be robber.
The Island Packet of Hilton Head reported a man with a ski mask and a gun came into a hotel early Sunday and demanded cash from the clerk.
The Beaufort County Sheriff’s report said the 60-year-old clerk shoved the robber, who hit the clerk in the face with the gun.
The clerk then grabbed a golf club and chased the man out of the hotel.
