ust how popular has Pinehurst No. 4 become in just a few weeks since reopening under the design of red-hot golf course architect Gil Hanse? Well, in November and December, the course was sold out 23 days … and filling up quickly as word of the “new” Pinehurst Resort layout spreads across the international golfing community. Hanse, who also recently created The Cradle short course at the resort, was the fifth famous architect to massage the land where No. 4 sits. The others included Donald Ross, whose work dates to the original 1919 design, Robert Trent Jones, Rees Jones and Tom Fazio. “I am not going to make a big deal about it,” Hanse said. “I appreciate that the resort feels it’s a good thing to have my name associated with No. 4. One of our guys brought me a ball maker from in the pro shop and it had all 10 courses on there and to see my name alongside Donald Ross and Tom Fazio and Rees Jones – the best modern architects and certainly Ross from a classical standpoint – I would be lying if I didn’t say it really touched me. I am getting emotional right now talking about it. It’s a really cool thing that I will always treasure.” Hanse took No. 4 to a bigger and bolder look, creating sweeping sandy areas that look ultra intimidating from the tee box, but wide fairways offset the potential hazards that await golfers.

“Even Ross declared that (the No. 4 land) was one of the best sites at Pinehurst, some really nice elevation changes and it’s great scale-wise,” Hanse said. “There is no better validation than that.” The Philadelphia native spent last winter in the house where Ross once lived on Pinehurst No. 2, spending hundreds of hours himself bulldozing his way around No. 4, listening to the Grateful Dead or Dave Matthews. “The fact that we were able to live in Pinehurst for four months made me be on site more often than I am on other projects, but it’s a standard we like to set and it’s the fun part of the job … and I don’t like to miss out on the fun,” he said. The series of par-3s Hanse and partner Jim Wagner designed are arguably the best this side of Pinehurst No. 2. And a massive cross bunker on the ninth hole – 100 yards deep – is as unique as it gets. “What we were trying to do was wipe the slate clean,” Hanse said. “The instructions to our shapers were ‘forget about golf, put all the land forms back.’ We wanted to put the ridges back where the ridges were, the valleys back where the valleys

were, and take a look at the tree lines and make the connections so if feels like it’s a natural piece of ground.” “It might be asking it a lot of it to call it a rival of No. 2 but it’s going to have a buzz around it for sure that’s not going to go away anytime soon because of the beauty of it – it’s just really cool looking,” Pinehurst Resort director of grounds and golf course maintenance Bob Farren said.

Dual state crowns for Reagan Raiders Campbell-bound Sasha Hayes captures individual title


By DAVID DROSCHAK asha Hayes was a multi-sport star growing up in the Triad area, with figure skating and golf emerging as her competitive loves as she entered her teen years. Then it was time for another life altering decision – breaking away from home schooling to enter the public school arena. Hayes enrolled at Reagan High School two years ago with the idea of playing on the women’s golf team and not pursuing a skating career. With a state championship medal and a golf scholarship to Campbell now secured, it’s clear Hayes made the right choice. “I was pretty good at skating and I miss it sometimes, but I love golf,” said Hayes, fresh off her 4-A state individual and team championship at Pinehurst Resort. “With figure skating you kind of burn out when you are 19 or 20, so I just really saw myself having a future in golf.” Maria Atwood, a freshman from Holly Springs, shot a 72 for a twostroke lead on Hayes and three other golfers after the first round, but couldn’t find her game on day two at Pinehurst No. 3, shooting an 81 that included a quadruple 8 on the 9th hole. Despite a poor final 18 holes, Atwood was still able to finish tied for fourth, nine shots off the pace. But with Atwood faltering, the door was left open for the senior Hayes to close out her brief but successful prep golfing career in style. “Trailing by two shots fired me up a little bit,” said Hayes, whose finalround 70 was the best score of the championship. “I wasn’t nervous, but I really wanted to win my senior year and not lose to a freshman. It gave me more incentive to do better and push myself and not worry about bad shots … and fight all the way to the end.” Hayes, who had a top 10 finish last season at the state championship, was the top scorer for a Reagan squad that gave coach Jay Allred his first title in 6


his 12th season at the Pfafftown school outside of Winston-Salem. “We’ve won 10 straight conference championships; we’ve won six regional titles, of which four are in a row, yet we had no state championship,” Allred said. “It is really good to get that monkey off our back. It was more a relief for me than elation.” Allred had coached a state champion in the past – his oldest daughter Victoria – who won the 4-A individual crown in 2011. “When Victoria won it individually it was interesting because I was disappointed we came in second place as a team,” Allred said. “I am a big believer that high school golf is all about team golf. This year was just fantastic.” Hayes shot 65 to win the 4-A West Regional in leading the Raiders to a 225 and a 20-shot victory over Ardrey Kell entering the state championship, where Reagan overcame a two-stroke first-round deficit to beat Pinecrest by six shots. Green Hope came in third, while Cardinal Gibbons tied for fourth with Jack Britt. “A lot of high school female golfers can hit the fairways and hit the greens, but Sasha can throw darts at pins,” Allred said. “When we need strokes she can push on the accelerator. I wanted her to be aggressive and fire at pins. And she did. That was kind of the difference. I had to keep the other players calm and just playing solid golf. Sasha was the one we could use to attack with.” Hayes, who shot an openinground 74, defeated Pinecrest’s Mara Hirtle by six shots while Reagan’s Morgan Ketchum (74-80), a freshman, placed sixth. “Morgan played 33 holes of great golf, if she had parred the other three holes she would have shot 71-74. The renovation to Pinehurst No. 3 made the course very challenging and one mistake can cost you several strokes,” Allred said. Reagan senior Mary Slade White (86-74) settled down and was clutch

on the final day to tie for 13th. “We had confidence Mary Slade could go low; we just needed her to believe it as well,” Allred said. “I sent the assistant coach Mary Kate Bowman-Choat out with her to help keep her pumped up all day.” “We were very loose coming into day two,” added Allred. “I think

some of that had to do with how Bowman-Choat and I approached things differently this year. We got away from the typical practice of putting all the time and doing drills. We just put them up on the golf course and made them play every day at practice and concentrate practicing their techniques on their own. I kind of felt they needed to know their swings and it was their responsibility to know their swings. And that elusive state title came despite giving away five shots on the opening hole of the 36-hole championship. “I thought we had a great team coming into the year and felt we had enough weapons to be able to pull it off this year,” Allred said. “Although we lose several seniors we have seven girls coming back next year so we look forward

Reagan senior Mary Slade White fired a 74 in the final round to help secure the victory.

to another championship run.” In addition to the state title, Reagan also set the North Carolina women’s prep record with the bestever nine-hole score of 101 on Aug. 29 during a regular-season match. “Being home schooled Sasha was a little tentative and hadn’t come out of her bubble yet when I first met her two years ago,” Allred said. “She has a lot of personality. It is amazing how much her personality has blossomed this last year being at Reagan. And she has a great opportunity there at Campbell, it being a top 30 program in the nation.” White has been nominated for the Morehead Scholarship and is entertaining playing college golf. Hayes said she will study business at Campbell and attempt to get a master’s degree. Allred is the Publisher of Triad Golf Today and Triangle Golf Today newspapers. In addition, he is an advocate for College Athlete Protections and was successful in the creation of the N.C. Legislature’s Commission for the Fair Treatment of College Athletes.

Reagan freshman Morgan Ketchum fired a first round 74 keeping Reagan within two shots after the first round.

Rockingham County ties state record with fourth straight 3-A championship


By EDDIE SOUTHARDS new addition to the team and clutch scoring in the final round led the Rockingham County women to their fourth straight 3-A state golf championship. “It's an outstanding accomplishment,” said Rockingham County coach Mike Williams. “I've just been lucky the last four years to have a bunch of girls who go at golf like it's a business.” The four straight titles tied a state high school record in women’s prep golf. The only other school to accomplish the feat was Salisbury in the 1-A/2-A classification from 2011-2014. Junior Riley Hamilton, a transfer student, paced the Cougars in scoring at Longleaf Golf & Family Club in Southern Pines. She shot 76-74 – 150 and finished third in the individual scoring. Hamilton transferred to Rockingham County this year from a private school in Virginia. “It feels so cool,” she said of the victory. “It's so great to be a part of something like this. We've gotten incredible support from the school.” The Cougars broke out of a tight three-team race after the first round to win by 13 shots. They shot 248 in the first round to trail Cox Mill of Concord by two shots. Northern Guilford, a conference rival, was right behind at 249. But Rockingham County shot 245 in the final round for a 493 total. Cox Mill and Northern Guilford tied for second place at 506. “I told them we had to putt better and just stay in the moment,” Williams said of his advice after the first round. “We had a bad day putting the first day. We had a sevenshot lead after the first nine holes but we had a terrible back nine. We kind of let everybody else back into it.” The other two scorers for the Cougars were junior Victoria Cook (79-82 – 161) and freshman Elli Flinchum (93-89 – 182). “Our our goal was to keep the legacy going,” Cook said. 10


Rockingham County Hamilton said she transferred to Rockingham County for both academic and athletic reasons. “I wanted to get different credits and I wanted to play different golf,” she said. “I had to play in the men’s division in Virginia. It was a different situation but I was willing to try it. I'm glad I did.” Williams said his players' dedication to golf has been a key to the four-year title run. “A lot of girls in high school put their clubs up and don't play in the offseason,” he said. “We've been lucky to have a lot of good players who take it seriously. They aspire to play college golf so they play tournaments year-round. When you go at it as hard as they do, you're going to have some success. “They're tournament golfers. It makes a difference when you come (to the state tournament) with those types of kids.”

Northern Guilford finished second for the second straight year. The Nighthawks were hoping to end Rockingham County's streak after defeating the Cougars in the conference final and the Central Regional this year. “Rockingham has always been a tough team to beat,” said Northern Guilford coach Ted Bonham. Williams said having the Nighthawks push his team during the season made the Cougars better. “I'd like to have it the other way around, where he's pushing us,” Bonham laughed. “We've had some real dogfights and it's been a very fun, interesting conference.” Junior Siana Wong led the Nighthawks with rounds of 83 and 80. Senior Kayla Smith of Burlington Williams finished second in the individual standings for the third straight year. She shot 75-73 to finish four shots behind winner Ana Tsiros of Asheville. Tsiros shot the only under-

par round of the tournament, a 70 on the opening day, and never relinquished the lead. She followed with a 74 for an even-par total of 144. “I'm a little disappointed I couldn't come out on top but I'm glad I was steady and solid overall,” Smith said. “My goal was to win it but Ana made it a little bit difficult to do that. I tried to come back but she is just very steady and never really gave me an open door to jump on.” Smith and Tsiros are two of the top ranked junior players in North Carolina. Smith came in ranked sixth in the state and Tsiros was 10th. They also are good friends, getting to know each other through junior golf tournaments, and played together in the final round. Smith's 75 in the first round was a great score considering how she started. She hit two balls out of bounds on the first tee and made a quadruple Continued on page 11

3-A from page 10 bogey eight. Then she played the final 17 holes in 1 under par. “After that hole, I honestly had no idea how I was going to play that day or the rest of the tournament. I'm glad I was able to recover,” Smith said. First-year Williams coach Jim Pappas said about Smith finishing second again, “I'm sure there's a little disappointment but she has a great attitude. She's a class act.” East Chapel Hill was the only Triangle-area school to make the 3-A title field and finished well back tied for 10th. Meanwhile, the future for Rockingham County could be a record fifth straight state title next year. The top three players plus two freshmen return for the Cougars. “We'll have the same team back next year,” Williams said. “It's exciting times. The future is still bright. For a rural school to have a good program like us … we're just lucky to get a lot of good golfers.”

Gil Hanse thought of every angle. Now it’s your turn. Play the new Pinehurst No. 4.

Forbush’s Fobes second in 1A-2A championship for second straight year

© 2018 Pinehurst, LLC


allory Fobes of Forbush shot a final-round 69 to finish runner-up to Katherine Schuster of First Flight School in the 1A/2A state women’s high school championship for the second straight season. Schuster recorded five birdies at the Foxfire Resort Grey Course on the first day to shoot 68, and then carded a 71 on day two for a 5-under total to defeat Fobes by four shots. Schuster beat Fobes by 10 shots to win the 2017 title. Those two golfers were the only players to finish under par this time. Fobes carded a 79 to finish second in the Central Regional to advance to the state championship as an individual. Alyssa Cox of Mount Airy, who beat Fobes in the regional, finished tied for fifth after a pair of 80s. Meanwhile, Gray Stone Day won the team title by 10 shots over Raleigh Charter, after holding a three-shot lead after the opening 18 holes. Oak Grove in Davidson County finished third, two shots behind Raleigh Charter.

Preserving Sapona under a new name



apona Ridge Country Club in Lexington has been sold for the second time in less than a month, this time purchased by a local group whose members plan to reopen the facility, including its golf course. Members of Sapona Ridge Acquisition LLC purchased the property Nov. 2 from Mark D. Moore, an aviation expert with the ride-sharing service, Uber. He had only bought the property in early October from NASCAR owner Richard Childress. The most-recent sale was for $1.59 million. Moore had purchased the 172acre course for $1.2 million. According to members, Sapona Ridge Acquisition LLC was formed to facilitate the purchase of the country club from Moore. They said the LLC is made up of 75 individuals, including homeowners, former club members and community members who wanted to preserve Sapona Ridge for the community. Members of the LLC purchased member-interest shares at $10,000 per share, with the money going to buy back the country club. The most recent purchase was made in cash, according to Jason Barney, one of six member-managers of the LLC. There is no mortgage on the property. 14


“The money would not have been raised if people didn’t really want the club back,” Barney said. He said shares are still available to interested parties. In addition to the 172 acres, the purchase includes the clubhouse and adjoining swimming pool, as well as all equipment and buildings. Barney said tentative plans are to reopen the course Nov. 15 as a semi-private facility. Memberships will be sold, but the course will also be open to the public. Barney said the facility will be operated much as it was prior to Childress’

purchase in 2012. From 1986 to 2012, the course was owned by Sapona Country Club Inc., and open to both members and the public. The facility had fallen into hard times prior to Childress’ purchase, with NewBridge Bank owning a note on the property and giving the club’s board of directors a deadline to find a buyer or face foreclosure. Prior to the recent purchases, the course was technically the property of Three R Holdings, which is owned by Childress, a NASCAR team owner and Davidson County resident. In a letter to Sapona Ridge mem-

bers at the time of the sale to Moore, Childress wrote: “I was hopeful that reinvesting significant capital and continued operational funding in the club would create the necessary growth to support the business. While we have certainly seen business improvement from the initial purchase year and made many ongoing capital improvements, the club has not been profitable in any single year since my purchase in 2012.” In published reports following the October sale, Moore said he closed the course for renovations, but hoped to reopen and, if not, to protect the land through a conservation easement. Barney said Moore was initially interested in selling the golf course back to the LLC, but wanted to keep the clubhouse for his personal residence or for conversion to use as a bed and breakfast. “We didn’t feel that was a viable option,” Barney said. Moore did not return calls from Triad Golf Today seeking comment. Barney said that in the month since Moore’s purchase, the course has continued to be maintained, with four groundskeepers working as if the facility was open. He said members of the LLC will be interviewing to hire a general manager and golf professional in the coming weeks. The course will also operate under a new name, Barney said, though that has yet to be decided.

Ralph James: A source of golfing inspiration



alph James will occasionally be golfing with someone he’s just met, not one of his longtime partners. They’ll play a few holes, with James smacking his 240-yard drives down the center of the fairway, with his chipping and putting games little short of superb. Before long, the newcomer will have seen enough. “Exactly how old are you?” the individual will ask. James laughs as he shares the story. For the record, he’s 82. Playing partners will sometimes jokingly demand to see his driver’s license as proof of such. “The good thing about growing older,” James says “is that it gets easier to shoot your age.” It’s an accomplishment that James, a resident of Bermuda Village Retirement Center in Bermuda Run, has accomplished more than 100 times. His handicap is a mere 7.6. James and his wife, Mary Lou, are both natives of Asheville. James got his bachelor’s degree at Wake Forest in 1958. He was a member of the college’s ACC-winning golf teams in 1957 and 1958. James majored in English at Wake Forest, then earned graduate and doctoral degrees at Drew University in Madison, N.J. Those were followed

by a divinity degree at Emory University in Atlanta. James taught philosophy and religion for nine years at N.C. Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, but spent most of his career working in management consulting. He’s been retired since he was 65. Golf has been the one constant throughout James’ life. “I play frequently,” he says. “I enjoy the game as much as ever.” James’ home course is Bermuda Run Country Club. He’s a seven-time N.C. Senior Games gold medalist, last accomplishing the feat in 2017. He’s won the National Senior Games twice,

was runner-up once, and has already qualified for the 2018 National Senior Games to be played in Albuquerque, N.M., next June. In late November, James and his playing partner, Frank Boone, will be competing in the Carolinas Golf Association’s Senior 4 Ball 70-and-over Tournament of Champions at Barefoot Landing Resort & Golf in Myrtle Beach. They’ll be trying to recapture a title they won in 2015. Locally, statewide and nationally, James has won more tournaments and titles than we’ve got room here to list. He said he enjoys playing at the senior level, though he laughs as he also notes, “I have to play against those 70-year-old kids.” One of those is Greg Dunn who heads the Oak Valley Men’s Golf Association at Oak Valley Golf Club in Advance. James is one of the regulars there. “I told him that when Continued on page 19

But when he returned home, it was like he’d been playing every day. “He’d come home, go out and shoot a 66,” Randall James recalls “He’d play once a month and just tear it up.” Randall James says his father remains a source of inspiration for other golfers. “Everybody can’t believe a guy his age hits the ball the way he does,” he says.

Golf Travel USA More than one million rounds of golf are played on Hilton Head each year



ilton Head Island, a crown jewel of the hauntingly picturesque Lowcountry of South Carolina, continues to generate impressive headlines. For the third year in a row, Travel + Leisure magazine ranked Hilton Head as the “No. 1 Island in the Continental United States.” Meanwhile, Condé Nast Traveler proclaimed Hilton Head its top choice in the 2018 Readers’ Choice “Best Islands in the U.S.” poll for the second consecutive year. Hilton Head outranked four Hawaiian Islands — Kauai, Maui, Oahu and the Big Island. Kiawah was the only other South Carolina Island that made the list, coming in at No. 3. Condé Nast editors raved about Hilton Head, saying the island feels “a world apart” from the South Carolina mainland, offering something for every type of traveler — from golfers to foodies to beach bums and everything in between. They noted

Hilton Head’s restaurants serve up the type of cuisine that competes with major cities. “These awards, which are becoming annual occurrences, certainly validate what we see every day on Hilton Head Island,” said Brad Marra, VP of Resort Operations for Hilton Head’s venerable Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. “Hilton Head is one of the great getaways anywhere, particularly for families. There is truly something for everyone here, the weather is incredible and Hilton Head’s beauty is unforgettable.” The first eco-planned vacation destination in the United States, Hilton Head is the largest barrier island off the Atlantic Ocean coast between Long Island and the Bahamas, covering 42 square miles — 12 miles long and 5 miles wide at its widest point. The local population of Hilton Head hovers around 38,000. But with more than 2.5 million visitors a year, the island never feels small. With limitless things to do and a delightfully perennial climate beckoning to be savored throughout the seasons, Hilton

Head is a natural magnet for a spectrum of sports, recreation and outdoor leisure. Boasting nearly two-dozen golf courses on the island alone, Hilton Head offers something for everyone — and every budget. More than a million rounds of golf are played on Hilton Head annually — more golf per capita than any place in the country. While some of its top courses are private, Hilton Head has earned its reputation as one of the world’s finest golf destinations, primarily due to its outstanding public and resort courses that will satisfy the palate of even the most selective golfer. Snuggled between Savannah and Charleston, Hilton Head is shaped like a boot, and the island’s real estate and resort developments are known as plantations. Sea Pines Resort, home of Harbour Town Golf Links and two other storied layouts, is located at the “toe” or the south end of the island. Located at the “heel” — meaning mid-island and north end -- are Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort with its Robert Trent Jones, George Fazio and Arthur Hills courses, and Port Royal Resort with 54 holes designed by Pete Dye, George Cobb and Willard Byrd.

Nearly every renowned golf course architect of this generation has representative work on the island. Along with the names above, add the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Rees Jones, Davis Love III and Robert Cupp. In late 1960, Hilton Head golf debuted in The Sea Pines Resort. Spanning the southern third of Hilton Head and located along 5,000 oceanfront acres, Sea Pines offers an array of outdoor activities for individuals, families and groups, including five miles of sandy beach shoreline and a 15-mile network of manicured bike and walking paths. All are within a short distance of a variety of accommodations and Hilton Head Island’s premier hotel, The Inn & Club at Harbour Town. Today, Harbour Town Golf Links remains a lasting monument to southern coastal golf. Every hole at Harbour Town has its own unique flavor and the finishing trio is one of the most breathtakingly challenging anywhere. The home hole with its view of the candy-cane lighthouse is the most famous, but the 185-yard, par-3 17th, which overlooks Calibogue Sound and across to neighboring Daufuskie Island, conjures up the perfect Lowcountry ambience. The PGA Tour makes its only South Carolina stop at Harbour Town each April for the RBC Heritage of Golf. Continued on page 21

Palmetto  Dunes 20


Golf Travel USA from page 20 Meanwhile, the Golf Course Owners Association recently named Sea Pines Resort’s new Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III “National Course of the Year.” Atlantic Dunes is a complete reconstruction of Sea Pines Resort’s historic Ocean Course. Not to be outdone, Sea Pines Resort’s original Sea Marsh Golf Course received a multimillion-dollar transformation in 2007 and is now called Heron Point by Pete Dye. The Sea Pines Resort recently unveiled the “Pete Dye Room” at the Harbour Town Clubhouse, celebrating the life and times of one of the all-time best designers. In one of the most comprehensive golf course architecture museums in the world, three videos offer insight into Dye’s philosophy and work ethic: In one, professional golfers and friends discuss their favorite Dye holes and courses; another relives the magic of the most famous shots on his courses; and a mini-documentary looks deeply into the creation of Harbour Town Golf Links, and how Dye’s process as a builder revolutionized course design and play. “When the economy tanked (in 2008) our owners said: ‘Let’s improve things and up the quality here,’” said Sea Pines Resort’s longtime director of golf John Farrell. “We are focused on three things: green speed, pace of play and quality of food.” Just a smooth 9-iron from Sea Pines on Hilton Head’s south end is Shipyard Plantation, which offers 27 holes designed by Cobb and Byrd that can be played in a trio of 18-hole combinations. Anchoring Hilton Head’s mid-island and bounded by three miles of Atlantic Ocean beach on one side and a sheltered Intracoastal Waterway marina on the other, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort offers a storied history of unparalleled golf experiences for guests from all corners of the globe. Named No. 3 “Best Resort in the South” in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards and to the top 25 World’s Best Family Getaways by Travel + Leisure, the Palmetto Dunes features vacation home and villa rentals, three worldclass golf courses, an award-winning tennis and pickle ball center, an 11-mile inland salt-water lagoon system for kayaking and fishing, and Hilton Head Outfitters for bike rentals, canoes, kayaks and fishing. The trio of golf courses at Palmetto Dunes has each been honored with South Carolina’s “Golf Course of the Year” award in the past 15 years. On Hilton Head Island’s northwestern point is Port Royal Resort — home to the

Harbour  Town original landing site of William Hilton, the explorer for whom the island is named. Within reach of approximately 12 miles of beach where Port Royal Sound joins the Atlantic Ocean, Port Royal offers a trio of distinctly different 18-hole golf courses. Robber’s Row was designed in 1967 by Cobb and Byrd, and was redesigned in 1994 by Dye. Located on the scenic marsh side of the Port Royal Plantation atop former Civil War grounds and featuring historical markers throughout, the layout winds through beautiful strands of magnolia and live oaks. The Barony Course opened in 1963 and was one of Hilton Head’s first courses. From the tee box, many of the holes appear to be relatively open, but as golfers approach the recently resurfaced Bermuda greens, the challenge becomes clear. Port Royal’s youngest course is Planter’s Row, which Byrd designed in 1983. Offering a different feel from its sister courses, with water on 10 of 18 holes, Planter’s Row is a great challenge due to its narrow, tree-lined fairways and small, undulating greens.

Like Sea Pines and Palmetto Dunes, Port Royal is also renowned for its worldclass tennis center and other outstanding amenities, including the luxurious Westin Hilton Head Resort & Spa. Several miles north of Port Royal is Hilton Head Plantation, the second-oldest private gated community on the island occupying almost 4,000 acres. Hilton Head Plantation offers a wide variety of golf with a quartet of gorgeous layouts: Oyster Reef Golf Club, Country Club of Hilton Head and Bear Creek Golf Club —all designed by Rees Jones — along with Dolphin Head, designed by Gary Player and Ron Kirby.

Oyster Reef Golf Club opened in 1983 and was immediately lauded as one of the country’s best new resort courses. Carved out of 190 acres of breathtaking Lowcountry terrain, Oyster Reef is home to one of the most spectacular golf holes on the entire island — the par-3 sixth hole plays 192 yards from the championship tees to a green that is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Port Royal Sound. Winding lagoons, lush vegetation and scenic views of the island surround Oyster Reef’s spectacular layout. Also on the north end of the island, Indigo Run Plantation boasts a pair of courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son, Jack Nicklaus II. The public access Golden Bear Golf Club puts a premium on strategy and finesse, rather than sheer power. Opened in 1992, Golden Bear flawlessly winds through forests of pine and oak and along freshwater lowlands. A new website – www. -- has been launched for information, while United Airlines recently announced it will open three new nonstop flights from Hilton Head Island Airport to Washington Dulles, Chicago O’Hare and Newark N.J., beginning in late March 2019. With all the recent changes, the legend of Hilton Head Island continues to flourish. “There are so many amazing things taking place right now on Hilton Head,” said Cary Corbitt, vice president of sports and operations at The Sea Pines Resort for nearly four decades and president of the Lowcountry Golf Course Owners Association. “In all my years here, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the island as vibrant as it is today.”

Off the

beaten path Stokes County disc golf course a must play


Photos by David Droschak



o hear Hunter McCulloch talk you could swear he was describing a diabolical Pete Dye layout, Amen Corner or the church pews at Oakmont. “The elevation changes are very critical and this course will punish you if you miss your line,” McCulloch said. McCulloch and fellow Durham resident James Everette are into a different kind of golf these days, having taken up disc golf a few years ago. The two made the two-hour trip to the North Carolina foothills to tackle The Rock at Stonewall Disc Course in which holes are measured in feet (nearly 13,000) and not yards. The object is to get the disc in a metal basket in as few throws as possible. “We’re heard a lot about this course in the disc golf community – it’s a pretty famous course,” McCulloch said. While most disc golf courses are at parks and confined to less than 20 acres, the disc golf course at Stonewall in rural Stokes County is unusual since it is spread out over the 5,222-yard golf course layout as “ball golfers” and “disc golfers” co-exist on the same turf. Each corresponding golf hole has a disc basket associated with it off to the side of each green. Stonewall Golf Course owner Rick Regan opened the disc golf layout in the fall of 2016. “We started it for a combination of reasons,” Regan said. “We were trying to build the business because we saw there weren’t as many youngsters going into ball golf and a lot of them were getting involved in disc golf. I really didn’t expect it to take off as good as it has.” Regan says the ball golfers have accepted the disc golfers on the course just fine. “It flows smoothly along with every single hole that the ball golf course has,” he said. “Our course is so very hilly so both use carts. I never realized that disc golf was as popular as it was but I started looking around and just about every municipal park in the state and many other states have disc golf courses. Horizons Park Disc Golf Course in

nearby northern Forsyth County was opened in 1981 and is home to the oldest permanent disc golf course in the state. Both Horizons and Stonewall were designed by Tom Monroe. “The reason we tried the disc golf here is because of all of the elevation changes and people are just astonished at how far they can throw a disc when you are throwing it from 150 to 250 feet above the landing area on some of these fairways,” Regan said. “I am from Pinehurst so I grew up playing real golf all my life,” McCulloch said. “But with disc golf you normally get to use a smaller slate of land so you get to reconnect with nature and really take a break from society. This is our yoga.” Stonewall now hosts a disc golf pro-am every year and drone footage of the course can be called up on YouTube. The course record on the par-70 Rock at Stonewall Disc Course is a 56 by High Point native David Wiggins Jr., who has thrown a disc more than 1,100 ft in his career to set the world record. “David came out here and he shot a 56 without ever seeing the course,” Regan said. “The guy has a cannon for an arm and he’s not a very big guy. It’s a lot like golf; there is a lot of technique involved. When you see some of these people come out with their bags of discs they have 40-50 discs in the bag and every single disc has a different motion. They have putters, drivers, fairway discs, ones that go high, ones that go low, ones that go to the right, and ones that go to the left. It is amazing. “It’s a real talent; they have to be able to maneuver discs around trees,” Regan added. “It just blows my mind. They can curve the disc and shape it just like Tiger Woods does with a golf ball.” The cost to play disc golf at Stonewall is $16 on weekdays and $21 on weekend. That includes the hole-in-one participation pot of $1,000 on No. 13. “It’s a challenge and one of the biggest courses I’ve ever played,” Everette said. “It’s a lot of work but it’s really rewarding when you get the right lines.” And worth the drive.

U.S. Mid-Amateur title scrambles O’Connell’s future



nly a few days had passed since Kevin O’Connell won the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship in late September. The transition from euphoria to what next was already underway. “It’s a little daunting,” said the 30-year-old O’Connell of Cary. “I’m not going to lie.” For defeating Brett Boner 4 and 3 in the 36-hole final of the 38th U.S. MidAmateur just down the road at Charlotte Country Club, O’Connell received more than a gold medal and his name engraved at the base of the ornately curvaceous silver trophy. The former University of North Carolina golfer received exemptions into the next 10 U.S. Mid-Amateurs, the next two U.S. Amateurs — including next year at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club — and next year’s U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. Also, around Christmas, he will likely receive an invitation to next year’s Masters.

O’Connell, ranked No. 20 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings (WAGR) heading into November, also elbowed his way into the U.S. Walker Cup team discussion. The Yanks will visit Great Britain & Ireland at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake next September. In March, the reinstated amateur had a solid plan in place. O’Connell was going to leave his job as a PXG (Parsons Xtreme Golf) club fitter and focus solely on his game with the intended hope of attending European Tour Qualifying School in early October. In seven WAGR events after leaving his job, O’Connell totaled five top-six finishes, including a mid-June win at the Monroe Invitational in Pittsford, N.Y. With his game in a good place, O’Connell arrived in Charlotte for the U.S. MidAmateur with every intention of leaving for Q-School the next week. “I felt like the year progressed well enough to give myself that shot,” said O’Connell. [Going to Europe was] something I was really looking forward to, but winning the Mid-Am has a way of changing a lot of plans.” Photo credit to USGA

O’Connell recently confirmed he would take a year off from work and play in as many top-shelf amateur events as possible. Such a schedule should not be all that unfamiliar to O’Connell. After a standout prep career at Cary’s Green Hope High School and earning Atlantic Coast Conference freshman of the year honors at UNC, O’Connell graduated college in 2011. He played a few years on the eGolf Professional Tour, a regional developmental mini-tour. During his days as a standout junior, O’Connell was afforded the opportunity to play against top-level peers, many who have become household names on the PGA Tour. So when O’Connell began to toil on the mini-tour and hover around the cut line at qualifying school, he began to have a “gradual realization” about his professional career. “I was shooting all of these scores that were right around par and that was good enough to survive in the sense that I was earning my money back, but I wasn’t progressing,” said O’Connell. “Every fall, Q-School would come around and I would shoot something that seemed to miss out by a shot or two. When that happens, you can look at it one of two ways. You can say, ‘Hey, if I can improve just a little bit, because I’m close here …,’ but in my opinion, if I wanted to be the successful player that I wanted to be, I should be competing more to win those stages instead of just squeaking through.” O’Connell pivoted and moved to a business career. He applied for and was granted amateur reinstatement around the turn of 2015.

Adams earns LPGA Tour card


By STEVE WILLIAMS trip into the zone has Lori Beth Adams on the road to the LPGA Tour. The former Western Alamance High School and UNC Wilmington star used an incredible 6-under-par 30 on the back nine of round seven in the LPGA Q-Series as the key to earning full status on the 2019 LPGA Tour. She was three shots off the magic number before the round and finished three shots to the good. The 30 capped a 65 on the memorable early November afternoon at Pinehurst No. 7 and she closed the deal with a 75 the following day. Adams secured a tie for 33rd in the event where only the top 45 passed the grade. “I was just in a zone,� Adams said of the 30. “I don’t think I had a putt longer than 15 feet all day.� The 144-hole marathon included four rounds at Pinehurst No. 6 in late October and another four rounds at No. 7. She posted 73-73-75-76 in the opening segment and started with 74-72 after switching courses. Then came round seven. Two early birdies provided an encouraging start but she bogeyed the par-3 ninth. “All week every time I got a bogey it turned into another bogey and another bogey,� she said. “So I just told my caddy it’s time to change that trend.� There were no more bogeys and the birdies came in bunches – 10, 11, 13, 15 and 16. After a par at No. 17, she drove into the fairway bunker on the par-5 18th. “I had to punch out and I had a 7-iron into the green. I stuffed it to 15 feet for a left-to-righter and I rolled it into the side for 7-under.� Adams turned pro in 2016 and played in a few Symetra Tour events before going full time on the LPGA’s developmental circuit in 2017 with limited success. It all came together in 2018 as she posted four top-10 finishes, highlighted by a tie for second in a June tournament a then a tie for third in the Tour Championship in early October. In all, she made 14 cuts in 18 events and earned $47,597 to place 15th on the money list. She ended about $13,000 short of the top-10, which

would have earned a LPGA Tour card without having to go through the Q-Series. In 51 Symetra rounds, she posted 15 scores in the 60s with a low of 65 and an average of 71.4. “I knew all year on the Symetra Tour that I was playing with my back against the wall,� Adams said. “It’s nice to know you can go low when you have to. I just need to learn how to go low all the time.� The LPGA Tour – with an ever-expanding international slate – hasn’t released its 2019 dates yet but it begins with the limited field Tournament of Champions Jan. 17-20 in Florida. The rest of schedule is still being ironed out, but Adams plans to be there when the first opportunity is available. “Of course my goal is to win but I just want to go out there and have a good first year,� she said. “The goal is to not go back on the Symetra Tour and just stay out there on the LPGA.�

Weaver makes finals

Former High Point resident Drew Weaver was the only Triad area player to advance to the finals of the web. com Tour Q-School finals. Weaver, who has been chasing the dream since graduating from Virginia Tech in 2009, spent the year playing on the GPro Tour, mostly in his native North Carolina, and the McKenzie Tour-Canada. He had two third-place finishes up north and won just over $30,000 in six events. But the goal is to claim full status on the Tour and Weaver put himself in position by shooting 68-7169-69 for an eighth-place tie in the second stage event Nov. 6-9 at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. He’ll next tee it up at the Q-School finals Dec. 6-9 in Chandler, Ariz. Meanwhile, the second stage became the end of the road for Ryan Sullivan of Winston-Salem, William Register of Burlington, Salisbury native Will Collins and WinstonSalem native David Mathis. It was especially heartbreaking for Collins, who fell one shot short of advancing. Bruce Woodall of Yanceyville and Adam Webb of Ridgeway, Va., who made it to the Q-School finals in 2017, were eliminated in the first stage this year.
