Tim Cooke, The Sea Pines Resort’s PGA Director of Golf Instruction, has been honored in GOLF Magazine’s list of “Top 100 Teachers in America” 2017-2018. No stranger to acclaim, this coveted national honor follows Cooke’s recognition as “Teacher of the Year” by the Carolinas PGA Section in 2014. The Carolinas Section is the largest of the PGA’s 41 sections with more than 2,000 professional members. Moreover, Golf Digest has continually ranked Cooke among its “Best Young Teachers” and top teachers in South Carolina.
Tim Cooke’s golf instructional articles have been featured in numerous publications including Golf Tips, Golf Illustrated and Golf Digest. He has made several guest appearances on Golf Channel’s “The Turn” as well as an instructional segment on the “Weekly Fix.”
Tim works out of the newly remodeled 23,000 square foot Plantation Golf Club’s Golf Learning Center, a state-of-the-art facility, where he heads the Elite Junior Golf Academy and the Sea Pines Signature One Day School. The Sea Pines Resort’s Plantation clubhouse has garnered Golf Inc’s 2015 “New Clubhouse of the Year” and services two outstanding golf courses; Heron Point by Pete Dye and the newly completed Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III.
“Tim is the main reason why our Golf Learning Center has garnered so much praise,” says Cary Corbitt, Vice President of Sports & Operations. “With three exceptional courses and world class golf amenities including Master Professional Tim’s expertise and passion in helping our members and guests improve their games, The Sea Pines Resort is in the upper echelon of premier golf facilities in the U. S.”
The Sea Pines Resort is situated on the southernmost tip of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, the legendary Low country destination featuring 5 miles of unspoiled beaches, Tennis Club with 21 clay courts, 14 miles of bike and walking trails, horseback riding, Eco-Adventures, water sports, and the 605-acre Sea Pines Forest Preserve. The Resort has become the blueprint for numerous beach developments around the country.
One of the crown jewels in the world of golf, The Sea Pines Resort is home to the PGA TOUR’s RBC Heritage Classic played on the challenging Pete Dye designed Harbour Town Golf Links two weeks after the Masters.
