Play With The Pros Program Starts This Month
Have you ever wanted to get out on the links with one of the staff golf professionals? Well, here is a great way to do so! Play 9 with the Pro is a new program starting this month. On the first day of each month, Charlie Kent, PGA at Hidden Cypress, Rich Owen, PGA at Okatie Creek, and Kevin Foley, PGA at Argent Lakes, will post a time weekly that they will be available to play nine holes of golf with your group. Please visit each pro’s respective golf shop to sign up for this first-come, first-serve opportunity. See you on the course!

"Adopt-A-Hole" Member Program
During your round, we ask the members give a little extra attention to their “adopted” hole. While waiting for play or in between shots, please fill an extra divot or two, pick up and dispose of broken tees, repair an extra ball mark on the green, take a moment to improve a poorly raked bunker, etc. This should be done during normal play and should not increase playing time. We hope everyone will participate and help support this fun new initiative to enhance our most valuable assets.
