Consider yourself cordially invited — to enjoy golf

Today, more than 3,000 people will enjoy golf at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort or on one of Hilton Head Island’s nearly two-dozen championship golf courses. Eighteen of the courses are open to the public and seven have been ranked among the nation’s Top 100. All three golf courses at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort have been awarded the South Carolina “Golf Course of the Year.”

Palmetto Dunes Director of Instruction Doug Weaver, a former PGA Tour professional and a member of the South Carolina Golf Hall of Fame, invites you to play or take a lesson today for a number of reasons.

This is the time to play, Doug says, because the average temperature in May is 84 for a high and 63 at night. Humidity is low and the breeze is refreshing. The average rainfall is only 3 inches so leave your umbrella in the car.

The sunrise is at 6:30 AM and tee times start at 6:45 AM, so you can be back to the group and go to the pool or beach for the rest of the day. The sun sets close to 8:30 PM, so you can go to the beach or fish all day and then start later and come play while watching the birds do their final fishing then bedding down in the rookery. Also, the deer will come out and watch you as they graze.

More than 500 people will take golf instruction on the island today. Doug says they will experience:

  • The exhilaration of the ball rocketing off the clubface and flying straight to the target.
  • An 80-year-old man will realize he still can play golf and experience the personal satisfaction of a well-struck shot. He can play proudly with his grandchildren.
  • A 3-year-old girl will sing songs and learn she can putt the ball in the hole consistently from 5 feet. That child will be challenged to putt with their eyes closed.
  • Families will play golf together. They will laugh and giggle having success and failure together. Dad may even let them sit in his lap and drive the cart with them.
  • A mother of three kids will discover she can join the rest of the family on the course after taking the Ladies Only Class. She is saying “this is not a strenuous game now that I know how to swing correctly.”
  • The husband is happy now because he gets an extra day of golf because his wife and kids are coming with him.
  • The 10-year-old boy or girl that lacks confidence will discover “I can do this.” I asked one young man named Bobby why he likes golf and dislikes soccer, baseball and basketball. He pondered the question and then replied, “The ball waits on me.” Another young lady named Susie later shared with me that she likes golf because no one is yelling at her to run faster and hustle more.
  • The introverts can go be by themselves and be challenged by golf — not needing anyone else to enjoy this interesting game and beautiful day.
  • The hard-working person that needs outdoor activity that does not require a lot mentally or physically will be refreshed and energized by the best natural medicines: fresh air, big skies and light activity

Doug Weaver and the rest of the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort team cordially invite you to play golf this week so you can make your own discovery of this wonderful game for a lifetime. Come join Doug and his staff every Monday from 4-5 PM at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course and enjoy the hands-on, interactive class and demonstration that will introduce you to the game of golf with a smile on your face.
