Details: Review "I think this book will really resonate with golfers from the state of South Carolina, but having read it I came to have an immense new appreciation for the role South Carolina has played and is now playing in the game" Tom Ward, The Sports Page Weekly Whether you're a native South Carolinian, a transplant to the Palmetto State or one of the hundreds of thousands of golfers who have picked South Carolina for annual family vacations or "buddy trips" over the years, South Carolina Golf is a book you're going to want to add to your golf library. Metro Golf Magazine Product Description For nearly three hundred years, South Carolina has played a vital role in American golf. The first golf clubs in America came from Scotland to Charleston in 1739. Myrtle Beach is sometimes called the "Golf Capital of the World," with more than eighty golf courses. The Country Club of Charleston produced World Golf Hall of Fame members Henry Picard and Beth Daniel. The 1991 Ryder Cup matches, the "War by the Shore," took place at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course, also the site of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championships. Hilton Head's Harbour Town Golf Links has hosted the PGA Tour's RBC Heritage for more than fifty years. Bob Gillespie and Tommy Braswell detail the history of the game in the Palmetto State.
