Our longtime Director of Golf Instruction, Doug Weaver, was recently selected for induction into the Lowcountry Golf Hall of Fame. In 2016, his colleagues voted Doug as Golf Digest magazine’s No. 2 Instructor in South Carolina and he was named the Hilton Head Island PGA chapter's “Teacher of the Year.”
