Give the gift of golf to your children

Naturally, those of us who have been at it for a while realize golf is a lifelong game. We know that because we’ve been playing for a lifetime. Sometimes just a single hole can feel like a lifetime, but that’s a different story.

But when did we start playing? Who encouraged us? If we were lucky, it was our parents.

Golf on Hilton Head Island is a thing of beauty, with a couple dozen gorgeous courses to choose from, lined with stately pines and graceful live oaks, dripping delicate Spanish moss.

Find Your "Number" to Enjoy Hilton Head Golf

Technology has come to the PGA TOUR to the point that every shot can now be measured, using lasers operated by volunteers on every hole of every round. I’ve found it curious when fans at TOUR events invariably ask the volunteers “how far did he hit that one!” Fans are obsessed with how far the […]

While I truly love everything about golf – from the ping resulting from a clubface properly connecting with a ball and scenic course landscapes to high tech equipment and apparel, I am particularly fond of the camaraderie, philanthropy and networking opportunity afforded by organized, sociable (i.e. laid back) golf tourneys for a great cause.

Hilton Head Island and the surrounding Lowcountry, home to a generous assortment of stunning public and private courses, abound with golf tournaments that are hosted by a variety of organizations and typically open to everyone, regardless of club affiliation or skill level.

Among all of those places, Hilton Head Island stands out.

Return of the Kiwis

Almost a year ago I learned that two bold (or crazy) New Zealand lawyer/golfers in their mid-twenties had decided to bag the law biz and travel the world.  The part that piqued my interest was that their travels would include a round of golf per day for a full 365 days, constantly moving, regardless of […]

Hilton Head Island: Great for golf…great for life!

A former Michigander, my initial foray onto the golf scene – actual playing – did not occur until I was in my twenties (a billion years ago) and began working the ad agency circuit. Prior to that, golf was something I occasionally caught on television while visiting a girlfriend’s home – her folks were country clubbers who enjoyed golf décor, televised golf, weekly rounds with their foursome and regular getaways to Vegas, Myrtle Beach and the like.

Based on what I could see on TV and their lively anecdotes, I could appreciate their passion for the game. With the peaceful atmosphere, sportsmanship, incredible landscapes and attractive, ‘tidy’ attire, there was no doubt golf was a pastime about which I could definitely get excited.

Bundle Your Golf and Save $$

I had the privilege in my “day job” a few weeks back to follow Tiger, Phil and US Open Champ Graeme McDowell as they were paired together at Doral. But what promised to be a matchup of great champions turned into something far less. In fact, you probably remember Tiger’s snipe-hook-topped drive that went less […]
