Golf Tip with Mark Love – Chipping around the Green
In one of our segments last year, we covered putting from off the green. While here on the Seaside Course the condition of the green surroundings is such that putting is often a good option, but there are always circumstances that may require the player to put the ball in the air from around the green. For example, if a sprinkler head is directly in your line, or you have to carry the corner of a bunker, etc. The very characteristic that makes putting from off the green a good option; tight, low cut green surrounds, can make chipping tricky.

Golf Tips with Mark Love – Playing in the Wind
The McGladrey Classic is played on the Seaside course, one of the prettiest courses you’ll find in the southeast. The open nature of the course provides a great opportunity for taking advantage of the beautiful marsh and ocean views the Golden Isles is known for. While this open nature creates for a wonderful visual experience, it also creates some challenges for the golfer. In exchange for the amazing views, the course had to give up many trees; this means that there is very little to slow down the occasionally strong ocean breezes that can wreak havoc on the golfer.
