Palmetto Dunes

Palmetto Dunes Loves Golf … And Kids!

Not only is Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort a great place to play golf on Hilton Head Island, it’s a great place for children under age 12 to learn from one of the nation’s best golf instructors.

Palmetto Dunes’ director of golf instruction and former PGA Tour professional Doug Weaver was named by U.S. Kids Golf as one of the top kids golf teachers in the country. Weaver was one of 50 instructors awarded an honorable mention in the awards, which honor professionals for their expertise and commitment to developing the game of golf in youth.

Palmetto Dunes offers an array of junior instruction from afternoon clinics to week-long programs as part of the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy. There are sessions for every age and skill level. Golf clubs are available if needed.

But what makes lessons at Palmetto Dunes so special is the contagious enthusiasm for the game. At the heart of every class is showing students how to apply the skills they already have to golf. For example, if they like soccer, some of those basics apply to golf.

Weaver has perfected the teaching techniques at Palmetto Dunes through experience as a former PGA Tour professional and a U.S. Open record holder. He also is a Golf Digest South Carolina Top 10 Instructor.

“The principles of golf not only teach athletic skills, but are true lessons for life,” says Weaver. “I enjoy helping children build their golf, and life, skills and am so excited to have been recognized for doing a job that I love.”

Palmetto Dunes also offers golf instruction that caters specifically to men, women or families. Pick up some skills you can put to the test on one of three courses in the resort: the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course that bumps against the Atlantic Ocean for the best ocean views on any course on Hilton Head Island, the bunker-laden George Fazio Golf Course that beckons you to lift your game a notch, and the Arthur Hills Golf Course that features the historic Leamington Lighthouse.

Hone your game from some of the best instructors in the country at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island.
