In just three days, a field of over 100 PGA professionals and amateurs will be playing their way through Dataw Island’s Cotton Dike Course. This course presents beauty and a challenge for the competitors in the 36-hole stroke play tournament. Last year, Cory Schneider won by two strokes. Ninety-nine others will be out to thwart his repeat this year.
The South Carolina Open, along with the North Carolina Open, tells an historic tale of our part of the world. Prior to 2003, only South Carolina PGA Professionals were permitted to play in the South Carolina Open. The same restrictions were in place for the North Carolina Open as well. That has since changed, so the quality of the fields has greatly improved as has the events’ exposure. Each year, the South Carolina Open is hosted by a championship-caliber course, with the goal being to not only showcase the talented PGA Professionals and amateurs of both states, but to also put on a display of the beauty of South Carolina from the Lowcountry, to the Upstate, to the Grand Strand.
If you want to watch some great golf, come on out to the Dataw Island Club May 22nd through 24th for this event.
