  • The Hooters Carolina Series: Growing a crop of new pro golfers

    The Hooters Tour has several divisions in it: the Pro Series, Winter Series, Carolina Winter and Carolina Series. These are real tours with real professional golfers playing in them and believe me, they are fun to watch. 

    Last week, I spent some time with Chris Zeh, the tournament director for The Carolina Series of the Hooters Tour. The tour was making a stop at Oyster Bay and we had a chance to chat when he was setting up the course on Tuesday.  

  • Jim Roach defined sportsmanship

    The First Tee has, at its foundation, established the Nine Core Values. These values (confidence, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, integrity, respect, judgment, sportsmanship and courtesy) are identified as positive and inherent to the game of golf.

    Sportsmanship: observing the rules of play and winning or losing with grace.

  • Byrd wins Hooters event at Oyster Bay

    Zack Byrd is known as the “Birdie Man” among the Hooters Carolina Tour Players. 

    Last  week he earned his nickname when he shot a sizzling 9-under score of 201 to win the three-day event at the par-70 Oyster Bay Golf Course in Calabash. He collected $3,700 for his efforts.

    Byrd carded a 69-64-68 over the three days of play and credits his coach, Mike Schroeder, with helping him keep the ball in play on the tough Maples design that weaves in and out of the surrounding marshlands.

This includes Brunswick County Schools, Community in Schools, Brunswick County 4-H, Oak Island Parks and Recreation and ATMC-TV.

    The chapter recently formed a partnership with another youth organization, Brunswick County Parks and Recreation. This partnership has already produced two exciting summer time opportunities to serve Brunswick County youth.
