Indian Wells Golf Resort Announces Exceptional Winter Getaways

Golf Stay-and-Plays Feature World-Class Accommodations, Play on Two Celebrated Layouts

(INDIAN WELLS, Ca.) – Indian Wells Golf Resort – the world-class public golf, vacation, culinary and events destination located in the picturesque Coachella Valley – has partnered with four neighboring hotels to offer a pair of ideal stay-and-play offers perfect for golf groups, families and those simply seeking a getaway this winter.

Guests can enjoy accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa, Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa, Tommy Bahama Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa, or Indian Wells Resort Hotel, all situated within a comfortable walking distance of Indian Wells Golf Resort and offering superlative amenities.

Celebrating its 37th anniversary, the acclaimed resort features 36 holes of exceptional golf with its Celebrity and Players layouts. The Celebrity, designed by architect Clive Clark and colloquially referred to as “Beauty,” features aesthetically pleasing water features, colorful wildflowers and narrow corridors placing an emphasis on shot making.

The John Fought-designed Players Course, or “The Beast” as it’s known, is a longer, more open layout with demanding bunkering and stunning vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges. Like The Celebrity, no roads or homes encroach the course, and each hole is designed to provide a feeling of privacy and escape in the heart of the scenic Coachella Valley.

Rounds on both celebrated designs are included in each of the stay-and-play packages offered by Indian Wells Golf Resort and the nearby hotels and resorts. Guests can choose from a variety of options featuring two and three-night accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa, Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa, Tommy Bahama Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa, or Indian Wells Resort Hotel.

Perfect for an extended stay or a quick weekend getaway, each partner hotel and resort offers a two-night option with a round on both the Players and Celebrity courses, as well as a three-night night stay featuring three rounds of golf at Indian Wells Golf Resort. Those interested can find more information on each individual package online here. 

“We are thrilled to welcome our guests to experience the beautiful Coachella Valley with its fabulous winter weather as our stay-and-play packages are the perfect way to experience everything our resort has to offer,” says Robin Graf, general manager of Indian Wells Golf Resort. “There is so much fun to be had here at Indian Wells from our phenomenal golf amenities to top-notch dining as well as our array of special events we have planned for the coming months.”

The VUE Grille & Bar, located in the resort’s stunning 53,000-square-foot clubhouse, boasts award-winning cuisine and an extensive selection of wine and spirits complemented by gorgeous views of the property and top-of-the-line customer care.

Puerto Rico Beckons as Winter Arrives in North America, Freezes Tee Times

Spur of the moment escapes available with increased flights, no passport required for U.S. citizen entry

(SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO) – Peak season has arrived in Puerto Rico just as temperatures have plummeted throughout much of North America forcing many golfers to put their clubs in hibernation.

Passenger arrivals are up at airports throughout the Island, as is play at virtually all 18 courses in the biodiverse tropical paradise – a bilingual American territory where no passport is required for U.S. citizens.

Thanks to the tropical island’s 18 courses and plethora of resorts, there are golf stay-and-play packages available to suit an array of preferences throughout the balmy island, all with after-play things nearby to enjoy.

On the south coast, Costa Caribe Golf & Country Club is home to 27 holes adjacent to the ocean on one side, mountains on the other. The club’s exciting signature island green par-3 is indicative of what awaits players. Stay next door in the Hilton Ponce Golf & Casino Resort, where breakfast buffets, rum welcome drinks, and other items are offered.

Near San Juan in the north and are several golf courses and resorts including El Conquistador, Wyndham Grand Rio Mar, St. Regis Bahia Beach, Rio Bayamon, and Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. On the east coast lies Wyndham Grand Palmas Resort and its two courses designed by Rees Jones and Gary Player.

In western Puerto Rico lies Royal Isabela, a boutique luxe resort with casitas, private plunge pools overlooking the ocean, and a golf course sitting atop 150-foot-high cliffs. Just down the road is Punta Borinquen, a municipal style golf club with a glorious “old bones” routing dating back to 1940, with ocean views from every hole.

If playing where the pros play is desired on trip itineraries, stay at the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve in Rio Mar and play the Championship Course there – it hosts the PGA TOUR’s Puerto Rico Open annually (March 4-10, 2024), and recently hosted a USGA and Latin America Amateur Championship.  

More than one-third of Puerto Rico’s courses are recognized among the top courses in the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Atlantic Islands (source: “Golfweek’s Best 50 Courses”). Many are designed by acclaimed golf course architects (Tom and George Fazio, Tom Kite, Greg Norman, Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Sr.).

Complementing Puerto Rico’s golf destination are its history, food, culture, beaches, casinos, vibrant arts scene, rainforest, bioluminescent bays, and LGBTQ+ friendly atmosphere.

Explore Branson (MO) Golf Destination Courses Honored in ‘Golfweek’s Best U.S. Short Courses’ List

– “Short Courses” have been springing up around the globe and the trend is so prevalent that Golfweek recently unveiled its first list dedicated to the niche – “Top 40 Par-3, Short and Non-Traditional U.S. Golf Courses in the U.S.”

Fortunately for Explore Branson Golf visitors, the destination has two courses that garnered top rankings in the list, including two in the top 20 and one in the top 10.

No. 8 – Top of the Rock, the 9-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, is the first-ever par-3 course to be included in a professional championship (PGA TOUR Champions Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf.)

No. 19 – Mountain Top, the 13-hole, walking only course designed by Gary Player, it showcases stunning Ozark views amid diverse, dramatic holes that wind around 300-million-year-old limestone formations.

Both courses are amenities of Big Cedar Lodge, which also has three 18-hole courses, all ranked among the best in the state and country and all are Audubon International certified for their best enviro and sustainability practices.

There are 10 courses in the destination, including two non-Big Cedar courses that are also ranked best-in-the state (Branson Hills and LedgeStone). All are located near one another as well as hundreds of restaurants, lodging options, and after-golf attractions (Silver Dollar City theme park, museums, live entertainment theaters, three lakes, zip lines, marinas, family venues).

An 11th course in the destination is under construction. It is an 18-hole, par-3 design called Cliffhangers that is located adjacent to Payne’s Valley, the championship layout authored by Tiger Woods and his TGR Design partners.

Wrote Golfweek about its inaugural “Short Course List”: “We included par-3 courses as well as short courses that might have a few par 4s and even par 5s. Some are crazy, over-the-top fun meant to be played barefoot with a cold drink in hand. Others are more traditional in their design. They might be at an elite private club, or they might be a muni down the street. There might be 18 holes, or there might be only six — who cares when you’re having a blast?”

Edison Golf Announces Black Friday Sale 

— Edison Golf, a company dedicated to revolutionizing wedge performance for recreational golfers, announces site-wide Black Friday savings starting Nov. 22 through midnight Nov. 27.

The savings are as follows:

- $25 off single wedges

- $75 off sets of three

- $100 off sets of four

“Since its inception, Edison Golf has been challenging historic -- and very inefficient designs in the wedge category,” said Terry Koehler, Edison founder and Director of Innovation. “Very simply, the EDISON 2.0 wedges were designed specifically to make your ‘not-so-good’ shots turn out more like your best, and to be the highest performing wedges in golf. This sale gives golfers the opportunity to experience “The Edison Difference” at our lowest price ever.”

The EDISON 2.0 wedges represent a quantum leap in wedge design because they are the only wedges on the market specifically designed around a 30-year study of the way recreational golfers hit their wedges, as opposed to being designed for the preferences of elite tour professionals. They have the most efficient distribution of clubhead mass in the category to deliver improved distance consistency, more forgiveness and enhanced spin.

Introduced in 2020, the original Edison Forged wedges significantly improved wedge performance by dramatically changing the way mass was distributed across the back of the clubhead. The EDISON 2.0 line of wedges positioned an additional 14-17 grams even higher in the clubhead, achieved by the creation of a multi-level back design that optimizes smash factor across the face. This repositioning also creates a fresh and distinctive visual appeal to the product. 

In addition to enhanced weighting technologies, the EDISON 2.0 wedges feature an improved version of the renowned and proven “Koehler Sole”. Patented by Koehler over 30 years ago, this unique sole design is the most versatile sole in the category, as it combines both a high and low bounce into each wedge to handle different lies and different swing paths.

The technologies found only in the EDISON 2.0 wedges further separate and distance Koehler’s work from all other wedge brands.

“We often get asked, "Why do the EDISON 2.0 wedges look so much different than the wedges I've always played?". Well, the answer is simple,” continued Koehler. “Throughout the modern history of golf clubs, every major performance breakthrough required us to get used to a different look.

“The Ping Anser didn't look anything like the classic blade putters of the day . . . metalwoods were certainly a far cry from persimmon drivers . . . cavity back irons compared to blades . . . Big Bertha® and the ensuing ever larger drivers . . . hybrids . . . and the big 'spaceship' putters that now dominate the category. None of them looked like what came before . . . but all of them worked better!

“Though we preserved a clean classic look at address, like all those other technological breakthroughs, the EDISON 2.0 wedges look different because they were designed for the way you hit your wedges, NOT the way tour players hit theirs. Thousands of golfers have already discovered they will make a huge difference in your scoring range performance.”

All EDISON 2.0 wedges are backed by the Company’s 100% Risk Free Trial. The Edison craftsmen will custom build you any EDISON 2.0 wedge at no extra charge. You can put it to the test on your course, hitting the variety of shots you face every round. If for any reason it's not the best wedge you've ever played, Edison Golf will buy it back.

EDISON 2.0 wedges are engineered in odd-number lofts from 45 to 59 degrees and are custom built for each golfer from a wide selection of premium KBS shafts and Lamkin grips. Requests for even number lofts are met by tweaking the lower number clubhead. Standard pricing is $199.95 for steel shaft wedges and $214.95 for graphite shafts. Shipping is always free, and discounts are applied on orders for full sets of three or more. The shopping experience is clean and easy on the company’s website at

Edison’s site-wide Black Friday pricing presents the golfer with savings of $25 on any single wedge and up to $100 off a full set. Discounts are automatically calculated at checkout.

Barbados Draws Increased Visitation from U.S.; Airlines Add Daily Flights

Budding luxe resort residential community Apes Hill mirrors positive trends, unveils new restaurant

(St. James, Barbados) – Commercial airlines United, American, and JetBlue have increased flights to Barbados this year and the added air travel options will continue through winter 2024, supporting the tropical island’s growing momentum and demand from guests that has touched virtually all niches, not the least of which are luxury venues.

Case in point is Apes Hill Barbados, the Caribbean’s first-class new resort residential community that is burgeoning in tandem with the thriving island.

Like the daily direct flights that have been added to Barbados to embrace demand – including from Boston, Charlotte, Miami, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere – Apes Hill has been unveiling new, 5-star components one after another this year, ranging from new real estate options to club and resort amenities. 

Gastronomic excellence abounds at Apes Hill. To further refine residents’ and guests’ culinary journey, the brand-new Noisy Cricket restaurant debuted Nov. 16, 2023.

Mediterranean coastal charm meets the warm, Caribbean spirit at Noisy Cricket, where each dish is a celebration of seasonal freshness and sustainability, and astonishing views await from the elevated perch.

“We’re taking great care to build amenities and services that complement our community and align with the island’s abundant natural environment,” said Sunil Chatrani, Executive Chairman, Apes Hill Barbados. “This is a place where people embrace the important things in life: family, friendships, health, wellbeing and connection to nature.”

Like Bajans, known for their openness, thoughtfulness, and generosity, Apes Hill Barbados is rooted in a rejuvenating, welcoming atmosphere. Highlights of the luxury resort-real estate community include the following.

Convenience and Accessibility: Located just a short drive from vibrant Holetown and historic Speightstown and Bridgetown, Apes Hill Barbados provides easy access to fine dining, shopping, and cultural attractions, ensuring residents have everything they need at their doorstep.

Sustainable Design: Apes Hill Barbados is committed to sustainable and environmentally responsible development practices, incorporating energy-efficient technologies, and preserving the natural ecosystem of the area. Its 18-hole golf course has earned certification from Audubon International for meeting or exceeding the mandated criteria and best practice requirements.

“Everything created here is synonymous with elegance, sophistication, and a commitment to the highest standards of living,” said Executive Chairman Chatrani. “This community is a testament to our dedication to creating exceptional, sustainable environments that elevate the quality of life."

Confirming Mr. Chatrani’s sentiments, Golf Inc. Magazine bestowed a “2023 Development of the Year” award upon it. The best-in-kind distinction “recognizes the finest private clubs and resort courses with the best new traditional and non-traditional golf courses (including short courses) that opened during the past year around the globe.”

Properties honored through the international competition were judged according to how well the vision of the project was executed, the course aesthetics, economic and environmental sustainability, course routing and land usage.

Apes Hill Barbados also shined at the 2023 World Golf Awards in Abu Dhabi, winning four categories, including ‘Best Golf Real Estate Venue’, ‘Best Eco-Friendly Golf Facility’, and Best New Golf Course in both Barbados and the Caribbean.

The third-party critical endorsements confirm precisely what Apes Hill Barbados set out to accomplish – inspired vision and successful execution, commitment to the environment and sustainability, and remarkable courses designed by legendary golf architect Ron Kirby.

Apes Hill Barbados is owned by Apes Hill (Barbados) Inc., a Barbadian company whose primary shareholder is Glenn J. Chamandy, a Canadian investor, founder, and CEO of leading clothing brand Gildan Activewear. Mr. Chamandy’s foresight has enabled the ambitious project to redefine golfing and estate living on the island.

Bonfit Brings Back the Limited White brush-t for the Holidays

Bonfit will gift the white holiday brush-t with the purchase of any brush-t bundle

(LOS ANGELES, CA) – Bonfit America, Inc., manufacturer of brush-t, the first innovative performance bristle golf tee, is launching its holiday season with a gift of the limited white brush-t.

“Give the gift of longer and more accurate drives. Get the golfer on your list customized brush-t bundles,” said Bonfit President Paul Krok. “For a limited time, we’re offering the exclusive white brush-t as a free bonus gift with your purchase of any bundle.”

The award-winning high-performance brush-t, with its proprietary Fast-Flex bristle design reduces resistance at impact, restores stolen velocity which allows the ball to travel the maximum distance. It also eliminates deflection to ensure greater accuracy. The brush-t base is inserted into the ground at the same height for ongoing consistency. Some think it provides an unfair advantage, but the brush-t conforms to the rules of the USGA and the Royal and Ancient Golf Society at St. Andrews.

Independent testing on brush-t vs a wooden tee was performed in San Diego, California using the Iron Byron Swing Tester. The results proved that brush-t adds between 3.2 to 7 yards to driving distances and eliminates 2% deflection for enhanced accuracy as compared to a wooden tee. Three leading golf manufacturers’ equipment was used in the test and contributed to the distance variance.

All brush-t packs are included in the Holiday Bundle. There are four brush-t models to select from: 3 Wood - 2” / Driver - 2.2” / Oversize – 2.4” / XLT - 3.1/8” and the cost is $24.99.

Caledonia, True Blue Unveil Myrtle Beach’s Hottest Winter Golf Package

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

(Pawleys Island, S.C.)
– Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Club, two of golf-rich South Carolina’s top 5 public courses, have unveiled a winter golf package that will warm the clubs of golfers from coast to coast. 

The “Winter Getaway” can be booked as a 3- or 4-night package, allowing golfers to play True Blue and Caledonia in the combination of their choosing while enjoying golf villa accommodations in Pawleys Island. The villas offer the option of 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom units, catering to groups of any size. 

Highlighting the strength of the Winter Getaway, No. 4 Caledonia and No. 5 True Blue trail only once (Kiawah’s Ocean Course), current (Harbour Town) and future (Dunes Club) PGA Tour courses on Golfweek’s list of the Palmetto State’s best public layouts. 

Caledonia and True Blue attract traveling golfers throughout the year, thanks to a subtropical climate and average high temperatures of 63 degrees in December and 60 degrees in January. The combination of comfortable weather and the appeal of the two Mike Strantz designed gems have made the “Winter Getaway” one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most popular shoulder season packages.

Caledonia, Strantz’s first solo design, launched the man known as “The Maverick” on the road to golf course architecture fame. Playing through a stunning piece of Lowcountry land, Caledonia is equal parts art and architecture, highlighted by one of the most dramatic closing stretches in golf travel.

The par 3 17th hole, which plays to a large green complex surrounded by sand, and the par 4 18th, which requires a carry over water to a green residing in the shadow of the property’s stately clubhouse, are unforgettable. 

True Blue is a sprawling design, featuring five par-5s, five par-3s, and Strantz’s legendary creativity. Visually, the layout is defined by waste bunkers that line generous fairways.

Ranked as one of America’s Top 100 Resort Courses by Golfweek, True Blue requires golfers who want to have a chance at  birdie to play to the proper spots in the fairway and on the approach to large, undulating greens. 

Caledonia and True Blue offer contrasting, yet equally memorable experiences. The lowcountry beauty of Caledonia and the modern aesthetic of True Blue make them the perfect pair for golfers that want to enjoy an unforgettable trip.

SkyGolf Kicks off the Holiday Season with Special Promotions

Give the golfer in your life the same rangefinders professional golfers trust for the most accurate distance information.

(RIDGELAND, MS) — SkyGolf, maker of SkyCaddie, the most-trusted rangefinders in golf, announces the start of its Holiday Promotion with discounts on its award-winning rangefinders.

Beginning November 13, 2023, the SX400 and SX550 handheld rangefinders and the stylish LX5 and LX5 with ceramic bezel smart watches will be offered at a $50 discount. The LX2 smart watch with cradle will be $20 off. The promotion runs through December 31, 2023.

“You can give the golfer in your life the same rangefinders professional golfers trust for the most accurate distance information,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf Senior VP and COO. “Unlike golf clubs that are built specifically for individual tour players, our powerful SkyCaddie rangefinders used by professional golfers are the same as those used by recreational golfers to improve accuracy and provide detailed, reliable information on any course.”

In June 2023, SkyCaddie GPS became the Official Distance Measuring Device of the Legends Tour, formerly known as the Staysure Tour and European Senior Tour. In 2022 SkyCaddie GPS users made up over two-thirds of the field in Legends Tour events where DMDs were permitted – scoring eight tournament wins and 14 runner-up spots along the way. In 2023, multiple SkyCaddie GPS users have also claimed victories on the Legends Tour.

All SkyCaddie GPS devices are preloaded with over 35,000 best-in-class courses and feature Wi-Fi connectivity to streamline application updates and getting the latest course updates without connecting to a computer.

A SkyCaddie reveals many aspects of a golf hole which are invisible to laser users, who only have line of sight. Unlike other GPS devices, SkyCaddie creates and frequently updates each course map on foot to record thousands of points with sub-meter precision, making it the most accurate GPS device on the market today.

The promotional period for the SkyCaddie Holiday discount runs from November 13 through December 31, 2023, and is subject to availability. The discount is only available on new SkyCaddie products, not pre-owned, open box or refurbished products. The offer is open only to U.S. residents and U.S. shipping addresses.

You can find top-rated SkyCaddie models at all leading golf retailers including Edwin Watts, Roger Dunne, PGA Super Store and authorized online retailers such as Play Better Golf. SkyGolf also offers Military/ First Responder and Teachers discounts direct by visiting

— Myrtle Beach Classic is thrilled to announce the launch of its official tournament logo and brand look in preparation for its highly anticipated, inaugural tournament set to take place May 9-12, 2024, at Dunes Golf and Beach Club. 

“This new logo and its complementary brand colors and fonts are a true reflection of the core values of the tournament: excellence, competition and the joy of playing golf in the Grand Strand,” said Darren Nelson, Myrtle Beach Classic Tournament Director. “This design also showcases the region’s significant role in the game of golf while representing nature and our commitment to preserving the natural environment.”

The logo features a subtle fusion of colors found along South Carolina’s Grand Strand, including deep ocean blue, fairway green, sunrise orange and sand, all of which blend seamlessly to pay homage to the Dunes Club’s coastal location.

Edison Golf Expands its Standard Selection of KBS Premium Shafts 

— Edison Golf, a company dedicated to revolutionizing wedge performance for recreational golfers, announces that it has doubled its standard offering (no upcharge) of KBS premium shafts for its line of EDISON 2.0 wedges.

The standard offering of KBS steel shafts has increased from the current KBS Tour 110R, 120S and 130X, to include the KBS Hi-Rev wedge shaft in both R and S flexes, and the KBS Tour V in S flex. On the graphite side, the KBS PGI series of standard shafts has been expanded from the PGI 70, PGI 80, and PGI 90 to include the PGI 50, PGI 60, and PGI 100.

“This expansion further accents Edison Golf’s commitment to being the premier custom-fit, custom-built wedge brand in the industry,” said Terry Koehler, Chairman and Director of Innovation at Edison Golf. “Edison now has the largest selection of premium standard shafts in the industry, allowing golfers to get exactly the right shaft in their wedges to optimize performance.” 

In addition to the KBS shafts, Edison Golf will build custom EDISON 2.0 wedges on any available shaft in the marketplace at the golfer’s request, with reasonable upcharges. 

The EDISON 2.0 wedges represent a quantum leap in wedge design, as they are the only wedges on the market specifically designed around a multi-year study of the way recreational golfers hit their wedges, as opposed to being designed for the extraordinary skills of elite tour players. They have the most efficient distribution of clubhead mass in the category to deliver improved distance consistency, more forgiveness and enhanced spin.

Introduced in 2020, the original Edison Forged wedges significantly improved wedge performance by dramatically changing the way mass was distributed across the back of the clubhead. In the EDISON 2.0 line of wedges, an additional 14-17 grams have been positioned even higher in the clubhead, achieved by creation of a multi-level back design that optimizes smash factor across the face. This repositioning also creates a fresh and distinctive visual appeal to the product. 

In addition to enhanced weighting technologies, the EDISON 2.0 wedges feature an improved version of the renowned and proven “Koehler Sole”. Patented by Koehler over 30 years ago, this unique sole design combines both a high and low bounce into each wedge and has been proven by thousands of golfers to deliver an unmatched level of sole versatility to handle different lies and different swing paths.

All EDISON 2.0 wedges are backed by the Company’s 100% Risk Free Trial. The Edison craftsmen will build you any EDISON 2.0 wedge and let you put it to the test on your course, hitting the variety of shots you face every round. If for any reason it's not the best wedge you've ever played, Edison Golf will buy it back.

Edison’s website also features the unique WedgeFit® Scoring Range Analysis, a 20-question exercise which gives golfers a unique look at their scoring range performance and suggests the lofts, shafts, grips, and specifications that will fit their game best.

EDISON 2.0 wedges are engineered in odd-number lofts from 45 to 59 degrees and are custom built for each golfer from a wide selection of premium KBS® shafts and Lamkin® grips. Requests for even number lofts are met by tweaking the lower number clubhead. Standard pricing is $199.95 for steel shaft wedges and $214.95 for graphite shafts. Shipping is always free, and discounts are applied on orders for full sets of three or more. The shopping experience is clean and easy on the company’s website at

Newly Rebranded Hammock Coast Golf Trail Provides Access to Unforgettable Courses in One of South Carolina’s Most Popular Destinations

– Waccamaw Golf Trail, a collection of 12 award-winning courses, has rebranded as the Hammock Coast Golf Trail, taking advantage of the surging popularity of the surrounding community and its branding efforts. 

Comprised of six coastal communities in Georgetown County, S.C. - Garden City, Murrells Inlet, Litchfield Beach, Pawleys Island, Georgetown and Andrews - South Carolina’s Hammock Coast is one of the Palmetto State’s top tourist destinations. Buoyed by its large selection of vacation rental condos and homes and wide-open, pristine beaches, the Hammock Coast attracts visitors from across the nation, many of them to play golf. 

The Hammock Coast Golf Trail offers players the opportunity to enjoy some of America’s premier designs, including Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, True Blue Golf Club, TPC Myrtle Beach and the newly renovated Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club. 

“The rebranding of the Hammock Coast Golf Trail is a natural one, linking the area’s golf courses to the larger tourism community in a manner that will benefit everyone,” said Bob Seganti, general manager of Caledonia and True Blue and a member of the county’s Tourism Management Commission, which oversees the marketing of South Carolina’s Hammock Coast. “Golf is an integral part of what makes this area so popular, attracting visitors 12 months a year, and we are proud to help expand the reach of the Hammock Coast brand.” 

“We’ve worked tirelessly to brand the area, and the decision of courses like Caledonia, True Blue and Pawleys Plantation to promote their properties under the Hammock Coast umbrella is a testament to the success of those efforts,” said Beth Stedman, president and CEO of the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce. “We are home to some of the nation’s most acclaimed beaches and golf courses, and it only makes sense to have them work together to spread the word about everything the area has to offer under the Hammock Coast brand.”

The Hammock Coast Golf Trail features award-winning courses playing through moss-draped oaks and gently flowing tidal rivers. The layouts of the HCGT - Blackmoor Golf Club, Caledonia, Founders Club, Litchfield Country Club, Pawleys, River Club, TPC, Tradition Club, True  Blue, Wachesaw Plantation East, Wedgefield Country Club and Willbrook Plantation Golf Club - allow golfers to package the area’s best courses, restaurants and accommodations on one unforgettable trip. 

Headlining the area’s offerings are Caledonia and True Blue, both Mike Strantz designs that are ranked among America’s top 100 resort courses, Pawleys Plantation, a Jack Nicklaus layout that just underwent a transformative greens, bunkers and clubhouse restoration project, and TPC, a course that has challenged the world’s best golfers. 

Blackmoor is golf legend Gary Players’ only area design, while Litchfield Country Club, Pawleys Island’s first course, continues to delight with its playability and conditions. 

Founders Club treats players to generous fairways framed by waste bunkers, creating memorable visuals, while River Club, Tradition and Willbrook, a trio of layouts that deliver the quality and value that help make the area so popular, have formed the backbone of countless Hammock Coast Golf Trail trips. 

Wachesaw Plantation East hosted four LPGA Tour events, a testament to the quality of the Clyde Johnston design, while Wedgefield Country Club plays along the Black River, providing views golfers talk about long after returning home.  

A Hammock Coast Golf Trail package can be booked as a stay-and-play trip or a golf-only offer. 

The Hammock Coast is one of South Carolina's most popular vacation destinations, wowing visitors with some of the Palmetto State’s premier beaches, Lowcountry charm and abundant eco-activities. At the heart of the area’s appeal is the casual charm it provides, delivering a surplus of family friendly activities without the crowds its nearby neighbors - Myrtle Beach and Charleston - attract.

With average high temperatures of 77 degrees in October, 70 in November and 63 in December, the Hammock Coast is an ideal location for a fall trip. From golf groups to couples in search of a holiday escape, the Hammock Coast has something for everyone.

Odyssey Golf Announces New Ai-ONE, Ai-ONE Milled Putters

(CARLSBAD, Calif.)
— Odyssey Golf, an industry leader in putter innovation and the #1 Putter on Tour, announced its exceptional new lineup of Ai-ONE and Ai-ONE Milled Putters. Featuring revolutionary insert technologies for more consistent ball speeds, even on off-center hits, these new offerings are designed to help you putt smarter.

In the new Ai-ONE, Odyssey has leveraged Callaway's industry-leading Artificial Intelligence design and super-computing capabilities to create the most advanced insert in golf. A multi-material construction includes unique contours on the back of the face that minimize ball speed losses on off-center hits, and greatly increase the sweet spot. Their revolutionary Ai-ONE urethane insert delivers more consistent ball speeds, even from off-center hits, leaving putts up to 21% closer to the hole*.

To achieve this unmatched level of performance, the back of the insert is crafted out of aluminum and a White Hot Urethane is added to the grooved striking surface for the iconic White Hot feel that millions of golfers love. These enhancements provide incredible feel, speed control, and consistency in a design that's changing the face of putting.

In a unique addition for Ai-ONE, Odyssey's designers have developed a Panlite® window that makes the contours visible; it's built from an automotive grade polymer that provides great clarity and scratch resistance. The window truly makes these putters unlike anything that's come before and highlights this extraordinary technology.

A lightweight SL 90 steel shaft with 20-30 grams (depending on the grip) of counterbalance weight is placed in the butt end, an evolution of Odyssey's Stroke Lab Weighting that will appeal to even more golfers. These putters all feature a beautiful navy blue PVD finish that really sets them apart and gives them a premium look.

Ai-ONE is already gaining attention on Tour and performing on golf's biggest stages. Jon Rahm used an Ai-ONE model to go undefeated while earning 3 points for the victorious European Team in Rome, and Sam Burns gamed an Ai-ONE model for the U.S. Team. Plus, Women's World #2 Ruoning Yin is already using an Ai-ONE in competition.

Ai-ONE Milled

The new Ai-ONE Milled also leverages Callaway's industry-leading Artificial Intelligence design and super-computing capabilities. These premium putters feature a 100% milled stainless steel body fit for the beauty and precision that the most discerning golfers appreciate, along with a 100% milled titanium insert.

This multi-material construction includes unique contours on the back of the face that minimize ball speed losses on off-center hits, and greatly increase the sweet spot. With Ai-ONE Milled, putts finish closer to the hole on average than a traditional milled putter*. 

The unique champagne finish complements the navy blue PVD of the head to give the putter a rich and striking look that sets it apart from other offerings. A lightweight SL 90 steel shaft with 20-30 grams (depending on the grip) of counterbalance weight is placed in the butt end, creating an evolution of Stroke Lab Weighting.

Models, Pricing, and Availability

The Odyssey Ai-ONE family will be at retail and online on November 3, with a price of $299.99. Head shapes include #1, Double Wide DB, Rossie S, #7S, and #7CH.
