Dataw Island is proud to be hosting the 65th South Carolina Open on May 22nd – 24th for the second year in a row.
In just ten days, a field of over 100 PGA professionals and amateurs will be playing their way through Dataw Island’s Cotton Dike Course. This lushly appointed landscape will present beauty and challenge for the competitors in the 36-hole stroke play tournament, all of whom are hoping to unseat last year’s champion Cory Schneider, who won by two strokes.
The South Carolina Open, along with the North Carolina Open, tells a historic tale of our Section. Prior to 2003, only South Carolina PGA Professionals were permitted to play in the event, and respectively, the same went for the North Carolina Open. 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.
The staffs of the Carolinas PGA Section and Dataw Island Club look forward to putting on a premier championship to entertain the field, promote local event partners, and benefit the surrounding community. Please join us at Dataw Island Club May 22nd – 24th for this event.
