 Favorite Core Value: Confidence

“You can recognize your limitless potential when feeling confident. ‘Whatever the mind can conceive and believe the mind can achieve.’ Inhale confidence, exhale doubt.”

On Mentoring:

“Mentoring is empowering others to see what they are capable of doing and learning. To guide and in some small way help them get there is the most rewarding feeling. From working with our students at Coastal Carolina University to volunteering in an after school program at a local elementary school to Gene’s Dream Foundation, it is the most satisfying feeling.”

Paige Cribb graduated from UNC Wilmington with a degree in Marketing where she was a four-year member of the women’s golf team. She earned her MBA Degree from Coastal Carolina University in 2011.

“I started playing golf when I was 8. Being from Georgetown, SC junior golf was active on the Grand Strand. Participating in tournaments up and down the beach in addition to playing and practicing, I just ‘knew’ who Mr. Weldon was. After graduating from college and wanting to pursue a career in the golf business on the Grand Strand I was fortunate to meet Gene as a fellow PGA Member and through that had many interactions with him. One of my most memorable thoughts of him was when I was considering running for Secretary of the Carolinas PGA Section; I reached out for his advice and opinion. Needless to say he was right in the middle of the Grand Strand contingency that drove to Greensboro, NC to vote for me. I will never forget that Myrtle Beach section of my peers and friends in the midst of over 900 PGA Members in attendance and my name being announced as a winner. Let’s just say they were loud in celebration!”
