2017 February Women’s Golf Getaway

I am so excited to post about our Women’s Golf Getaway Event. This was our 5th year of this special event. I am so proud of all the ladies for coming out to improve her games at Kiawah.

We hold it each year during the month of February, towards the end of the month for lots of sunshine. It is such a special event for me, because it is an all ladies event. For two days, we learn about golf, play golf, and talk about golf…..yes and occasionally drink some wine . The event starts with a cocktail/meet and greet hour at the Sanctuary where we all meet to discuss the following two days and yes get acquainted. Then the next two days have 3 hours of morning instruction on the range focusing on topics from short game, full swing w/ video, club fitting, trouble shots etc….

On the range we have both women and men instructors. It is a 5 to 1 student to teacher ratio: this way everyone will get hands on instruction more often. Followed by a great lunch Tomasso’s restaurant. Then off to a 9 hole playing lesson. Each foursome has their own personal instructor to help them on every shot! After the two days, we then all come together for a great awards ceremony at the Sanctuary in one of their amazing ballrooms where special awards are given out, dinner and drinks, and the closing ceremony. I know I meet so many great women during the event and everyone walks away with great tips and knowledge of the game, but also new golf friends around the world.

I promise once I know the events date, I will post it in on this site.  Also, feel free to check out Kiawah Islands’s website at http://www.kiawahresort.com, under special events. It fills up fast. If you have any questions please contact me.

My Family

I thought I would write my next blog  to tell you a little bit about my family. I was married in 2008 to my awesome husband Greg Welch. We met working at Wild Dunes Golf Course. We started as golf partners and it grew into more. You can see a picture on my site of his favorite moment, sinking a putt on the green after our wedding. Yes, he made it on his first try….it was meant to be! About a year later I started hinting about possibly having a kid, therefore Greg bought me a dog instead! She is an amazing golden retriever named Merritt. Then a couple years later I hinted again and we had Cole. He is now four years old and has been playing golf for about a year now. He has a great swing, but his putting needs a lot of work. But we hope to all be on the golf course in heavy competition soon!

Welcome to my website

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

Thank you for visiting my website. I am hoping this site will help you find great instruction, tips, and information about golf. I picked this picture because it is truly Kiawah Island Golf Resort where I work. We love to see the nature surrounding us and hope that our golf balls don’t go anywhere near these hazards! If they do, please feel free to contact me through this website or Kiawah and we can straighten out those golf shots.
