Hurricane Florence Impact Assistance

First and foremost, we hope you, your family and loved ones are safe from the effects of Hurricane Florence.   Team members from our staff and the PGA of America, made over 200 phone calls yesterday to members and associates in affected areas to check on their well-being and safety, and to assist with any necessary relief support.  Thankfully we did not hear of any personal injuries or loss of life.  Many are still evacuated and hope to return to their homes later this week when the roads clear.  Most that were contacted did not have major personal loss, however, a few suffered massive flooding at their homes.  We fear those that evacuated will return to the heaviest hit areas.

Steve Scott Wins the 2018 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship

(Hilton Head Island, SC) – The 2018 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship is complete, here at Sea Pines Resort. Players competed for the title on a gorgeous day at Harbour Town Golf Links and there was plenty of nail-biting competition among everyone.

Coming out victorious in this prestigious event is Steve Scott who finished his 54-holes at 2-under par. Scott, from The Outpost Club, was not far from the top of the leaderboard after the first and second rounds of play. He fought hard through the tough conditions yesterday and proceeded to hold steady in today’s final round, shooting +1 to hold him above the rest of the field. “I tried to bogey myself to death in the last few holes but I made enough birdies to offset it and it worked out,” said Scott, when reflecting on his round. “The shot that really put me over the edge was on the 17th hole. I hit an 8-iron from 172 to about 6 inches; that really helped.”
