Winter Golfing at Palmetto Dunes, A Chance to Improve Your Golf Game

golf lessonsWhile winter may slow down most of the country, visitors to Hilton Head can stay active no matter the time of year. With daytime temperatures averaging between 50-60 degrees during the winter, it’s great weather to get outside and play a round of golf with us here at Palmetto Dunes.

This winter we’re offering two new golf packages and programs that will not only help improve your game but will bring a little piece of Canada to our Island.

If  you’re  looking  to improve your golf game while the weather is milder, the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy is offering a new “Five Ways to Better Golf” assessment and coaching package. Led by Doug Weaver, Palmetto Dunes’ director of golf instruction, guests receive assessments of the following five systems of their golf game: mental, full swing technical, short game technical, equipment and fitness.

Hailing from Granby, Quebec, Michel Dion, joins our golf team this winter to help with instruction. Winter brings many of our Canadian golfers to Hilton Head and Dion’s experience and French-speaking abilities will bring a whole new dynamic to Palmetto Dunes.

Spend your winter with us improving every aspect of your golf game, and we’ll have you looking like a star in time for spring and summer!  

Tee Up on Thursdays at Golf Fest

If you’re a Beaufort County resident, it’s time to take advantage of our Thursday afternoon Golf Fest event. Join us each week from 3:30 to 4 p.m. (time varies seasonally) and learn more about each of our three golf courses over a period of three weeks. It’s only $20 to play 9 holes and we provide chicken wings and beer afterward! Golf Fest is a way for Beaufort County residents to experience our courses and meet our pros – and learn more about becoming Palmetto Dunes golf members. If you’re interested, contact Samm Wolfe at the George Fazio Course at 843-816-1571.

Meet Sammy Mulrain: Starter at the Jones Course

If you’ve ever played the Robert Trent Jones course on a Thursday then you’ve definitely seen and, if you’re lucky, had the pleasure of meeting Starter, Sammy Mulrain. Sammy has been with us at Palmetto Dunes for more than 30 years and he is one of very few people who can say they’ve never missed a day of work. Sammy’s never even been late! Sammy, who is 95, might have gotten his work ethic when he stormed Normandy in World War II or maybe even when he played baseball with “The Scooter” himself, Phil Rizzuto. After living across the world, he moved to Hilton Head, S.C. and we are so grateful he did. Sammy gives back to our community by working with several non-profits in the area. For example, he spends his own time collecting lost golf balls, which a local church can then sell as a fund-raising activity. Sammy won the 2009 Employee of the Year award from Lowcountry Golf Course Owners Association, a much deserved recognition, but to us here at Palmetto Dunes, but he’s Employee of the Century! We love ya Sammy!
