The Carolinas Four-Ball Championship could just as easily be called the "Camden Four-Ball Championship" or the "Camden Two-Man Invitational". That's because the popular, prestigious Carolinas Golf Association event has been held at historic Camden (S.C.) Country Club 60 of 65 playings on the only 18-hole course in South Carolina designed by Donald Ross.

The 2016 championship begins Wednesday May 4th with the first round of a 36-hole qualifier. Players will be chasing the first round record score 59 shot in 1986 by the team of Bill Bowers and Jonny Banks from Columbia, S.C. The record 36-hole qualifying score of 124 shot on the par-70 layout was posted in 2010 by Michael Sims of West Columbia, S.C. and Jordan Byrd of Pendleton, S.C.

After the second round of four-ball stroke play qualifying on May 5th, the field will be cut to the low 32 teams for match play. The first two rounds of match play will commence on May 6th.
