Where did the term Birdie come from.....

Bird...ie -  While playing in Atlantic City, N.J., in 1889,  Ab Smith  hit a shot he defined as a "bird of a shot." His description ultimately led to one of the game's most popular terms, which golfers regularly aim for - "birdie."

2018 is off to a great start....Our first event of the year, One-Day State Tournament at Kiawah Island - Ocean Course, filled up in record time....9 minutes!  But that's not the best part, the Ocean Course offered to bring in more carts so we can increase our field.  Yes, that's right we will now host 32 teams on February 6 at the Ocean Course.  It's going to be a great day, looking forward to seeing everyone!
