The Links Golf Course was Tom Fazio's first. Today, it's still among his favorites - and he's not the only one. From the rustling palms lining lush, rolling fairways to a finishing hole overlooking the glistening Atlantic Ocean, the Links Course is South Carolina golf at its finest. The Harbor Golf Course, also designed by Fazio, is known for its challenging design and beautiful views, and most of all, water. From lagoons and salt marshes to the Intracoastal Waterway, this varied golf course in Charleston, South Carolina will test all aspects of your game.

 

The championship format is 36 holes using a mixed format of four-ball stroke play and modified alternate shot. Gross scores only. Teams may choose to compete in any division in which they are eligible: Championship Division; Tournament Division (shorter course); Senior Division (male age 55+, female age 50+); or Super Senior Division (male age 65+, female age 65+). The Tournament Division plays a shorter course and is ineligible for the overall championship. Tournament, Senior and Super Senior Divisions will be pre-flighted by team handicap index. Team handicap index is computed by adding ⅔ of the lower handicap index to ⅓ of the higher handicap index. A tie for the overall championship is decided by an on-course playoff. 

 

Entry is open to any team comprised of a male amateur and a female amateur golfer who have reached their 13th birthday by August 21, 2021, maintains a residence in North Carolina or South Carolina, is a member in good standing of a club which is a member of the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) and has an active GHIN® USGA Handicap Index® at a CGA member club.
