The Golf Channel film crew was recently at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, one of the eleven Wacccamaw Golf Trail member courses, filming a segment on The First Tee of the Grand Strand’s Future Generations Tournament on Tuesday, July 19th. THe segment aired the following Thursday morning on the network’s “Morning Drive” show.
The fundraising tournament teed off at 1 p.m., and Golf Channel associate producer and editor Donald Goertz was on site, when filming began around 11 a.m. The segment included footage and interviews with some First Tee juniors, opening remarks by Golf Channel personalities and tournament hosts Kelly Tilghman and Charlie Rymer, and information about The First Tee of the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach, and the connection Tilghman and Rymer have to the area, event and organization.
Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday was also on location, streaming a live feed on Facebook from the event from about 12:45-1:30 p.m., using phones and ipads, offering extended coverage coverage of Rymer and Tilghman hitting shots for groups on the ninth tee box. The marketing cooperative also had a video crew on site utilizing a drone to film highlight video that both it and The First Tee can use for promotional material on internet sites and social media.
“We want to offer people a feel for the event and lend our support to The First Tee,” Golf Holiday president Bill Golden said.
