Caddie’s Corner with Shelley Martin

Welcome to Caddie’s Corner.   Caddie’s Corner is a quick review of the month before, including updates on members, tournament results and upcoming events for the next month.

February 2021 review:

Wow, what a month, where do I begin?   Let me just start with saying that membership numbers are still growing, this is something that we are all excited about.   2021 Tournaments are starting to fill up and currently the Labor Day event at Legends is over 60 players.  That is over 6 months away, super pumped about these numbers.

February 5th through the 7th was the 6th Annual Pawley’s Invitational at Caledonia Golf and Fish Club & True Blue Golf Links.  To start, the weather was not the best, but it wasn’t the worst.  Friday’s skins game had a small but amazing turn out and Friday was the best weather day of the weekend.  Weekend temperatures were in the 40’s and rain in the forecast all weekend, but we did get play in all 3 days.   I was in one of the final groups out on Saturday afternoon and we finished the 18th in the dark, with only the lights of the clubhouse to bring us in.  It was AWESOME!   True Blue on Sunday was your typical Sunday final.  I did witness a hole-in-one on Hole #3 by William Levier from the Eastern North Carolina tour.  Thanks to Jenn Moose and Sissy Benson for being the course photographers for the weekend.  HUGE thank you for the entire staff at Caledonia and True Blue!

February 20th was the Kickoff tournament for the Myrtle Beach / Wilmington tour at Oyster Bay Golf Links in Sunset Beach, NC.   Again, another cold, cold day, but at least the sun was out the entire day.  We had a great showing of both regular and senior tour members, over 50 players.  A few of the flights had to go to multiple playoff holes to establish a winner.  What was awesome was that most of the players stayed around to watch the playoffs.  The staff at Oyster Bay was top notch, thank you again for everything you did!   Thank you to Sissy Benson for showing up and braving the cold weather for some great pictures.   There are a few added to the link below and more will be added later.

Upcoming in the month or March will be 2 exciting events:

March 13th we will be at Blackmoor Golf Club in Murrells Inlet, SC.  I think we should call it the GW Irish Open, just because it is a few days before St Patrick’s Day.  This event will be sponsored by East Coast Remolding, so the payouts for this event will be nice.  Get signed up for this fun event by clicking the link below.  Oh, and I might even be wearing a kilt that day......

March 27th we will be at one of the gems of the Barefoot Resort, the Fazio course.  This is a course that you will love or hate.  I played one of the best rounds of golf there last year and ended up in 2nd place on the first playoff hole.  Hopefully I can redeem myself this year, but who knows.  The charity for this event is the Palmetto Place Children and Youth services.

Until April, happy golfing and hit ‘em straight, long and make sure you tip the beverage lady.
