Beaufort, SC --- Dataw Island is pleased to welcome back the South Carolina Golf Association and the Women’s South Carolina Golf Association for the 23rd Annual SCGA-WSCGA Mixed Team Championship, October 23-24.
Attendees hail from throughout the state of South Carolina and will be vying for the titles of “Mixed Team Champions” and “Senior Mixed Team Champions.”
The Mixed Team Championship, otherwise known as the “Divorce Open,” will test the skills of all parties involved. Playing a Four Ball format the first day and a Select Drive Alternate Shot format on the final day, these men and women will surely have a great time – and hopefully, none will result in divorce!
According to the SCGA, the Mixed Team Championship is one of the most popular events in the State. Returning this year to the Lowcountry, play will take place on Dataw Island’s two golf courses: Tom Fazio’s “Cotton Dike,” and Arthur Hills’ “Morgan River.” With a tournament reception at the Dataw Island Club on Friday evening starting the event – the fun lasts throughout the weekend.
Spectators welcome; please contact the Golf Pro Shop for covid restrictions.
