HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (Sept. 11, 2019) – Julie Cole—one of the LPGA’s Top 50 Teachers and newest member of The Sea Pines Resort golf staff—will host a complimentary open house for women golfers on Wednesday, September 18 from 9 am – 4 pm at the Golf Learning Center at The Sea Pines Resort.

“One of the goals I had when I came on board was to offer more opportunity for women golfers,” said Cole, who won 12 tournaments worldwide during 20 years as a playing professional. “I’m excited to be hosting the first of what I hope are many women’s golf days at Sea Pines.”

Registration and check-in begin at 9 am followed by three, 30-minute morning demonstrations on putting, pitching, and full swing led by Cole and The Sea Pines Resort golf staff. Lunch will be available at Fraser’s Tavern from noon-1:30 pm, with a 20% food and beverage discount offered to the open house participants. The afternoon line-up includes a “15-Minute Fast Fit” with golf equipment fitter Marcus Hunt and specialized full-swing clinics with Cole. Full swing clinics are first-come, first-served; reservations are required for the "15-Minute Fast Fit.”

In addition to clinics, new equipment for women from PING, Cobra, and Nancy Lopez Golf will be available for testing. Puma, EP Pro, and Fairway & Greene will also be on hand to showcase the latest golf fashions.
