On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we visit our very good friend Brett Thomaswick at Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club in Sunset Beach, North Carolina.  Brett is the PGA head professional at this fun and fantastic 27 hole facility designed by world renowned golf course architect, Dan Maples.  Recently awarded four stars by Golf Digest, Sandpiper Bay has always provided service with Southern Charm for their guests, whether they be Members, locals or visitors from afar. Along the Grand Strand, Sandpiper is known for their welcoming and professional staff.

Brett is very excited to talk to us and tell us all about the first annual Parent/Child Golf Outing brought to you by the First Tee of Brunswick County and the Golf Academy of America.  It was a day with many, many young golfers getting out to the golf course and playing with their parents.  It was an amazing event that brought tha e whole family together to enjoy time at a great golf course, enjoying the great game of golf.  Not only did the families have fun but the staff and volunteers did too.

“It’s a great day for golf!  It is part of my job to get these kids and their parents to come out and play some golf and enjoy this wonderful game” said Thomaswick.  The day was filled with great fun and fellowship across the golf course.  There were kids of all ages playing with their parents and siblings.  There were kids that had been playing golf for a few years now right along with youngsters that were picking the game up for the first time.  It was a truly inspiring experience for all the staff and volunteers from the First Tee and the Golf Academy and that is just as much a part of the total experience and the kids golfing.

“If you would like to have as much fun as these kids are having today, give us a call and come out and see what Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club is all about” Brett added.
