SAINT HELENA ISLAND, S.C. (April 19, 2024) – The CAA Men’s Golf Championship returns to Dataw Island for a 54-hole tournament that begins Sunday at Dataw Island.

The private, gated community has a longstanding tradition of supporting young athletes, and the tradition continues with this year's College Golf Championship. Members will again host some teams for overnight accommodations throughout their competition, and many others will come out to cheer them on. (Please note: Spectators are asked to remain on the cart paths or in the rough at least 15 yards from the players and to refrain from any communication that could be deemed as advice.)
Eleven CAA colleges will compete for team and individual titles on the par-72, 6,849-yard course with starts for the three rounds on Sunday and Monday at 8:30 a.m. and Tuesday at 8 a.m. on the Tom Fazio-designed Cotton Dike course.
