|TIPS FROM THE PROS:
Improve Your Chip
Constributed by Doug Weaver, Director of Golf Instruction
Trust the loft! Yes, I know, it’s hard. But when done correctly, you will see the benefit in your chip shot. A lot of people try to lift with the wrist, but avoid this temptation. A better technique is to measure the distance between the shaft back to the face with your finger. This tells you the loft. Then, if you want to see what the loft will do for you, lay the pitching wedge down on the ground and step on the head. This will tell you the trajectory. Now, place the ball in the middle, lean on your left foot and use your putting stroke. Remember; let the club do the work!

Best Shots on Arthur Hills Course
Contributed by Clark Sinclair, Head Professional, Arthur Hills Golf Course
There have been some unbelievable moments on the challenging Arthur Hills Course over the years. It is an impossible task to choose between them, so here are a few favorites:
Reserve your next tee-time on any of our three championship courses now! OR Call 866-627-4506.
- Last year, Bob Coughanour’s second shot on 17 went in the cup for an eagle!
- Tiger Woods’ second shot from behind a saw palmetto bush on 10. He smashed through the bush with a low fade onto the green!
- Brenden Kelly’s third shot on 7. He was in the dirt, in front of a bush, just left of the cart path and 50 yards away. He hit up and over the trap to a back left pin placement three feet away!
