Pawleys Island golf course hosting GolfWeek intercollegiate golf tournament
True Blue Golf Club, one of America’s top 100 public courses and a key golf experience in Pawleys Island, is testing some of the nation’s premier young players at this week’s Golfweek/Any Given Tuesday Intercollegiate.
A 54-hole event, the tournament teed off for a March 28-30 event that features men’s and women’s events, challenging more than 125 collegiate golfers on one of the Hammock Coast’s most acclaimed layouts.
The men’s event includes Xavier, Charleston Southern, Gardner-Webb, High Point, Marshall, North Dakota State, Ohio, University of St. Thomas and Jacksonville State.
Featuring 17 teams, the women’s tournament also attracted squads from across the country, including Evansville, Jacksonville, Morehead State, Marshall, Southern Methodist, Missouri, North Dakota State, Coastal Carolina, Ohio, SMU, St. Thomas, Charleston Southern, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, UNC-Greensboro, University of the Incarnate Word, South Alabama, Appalachian State and UNC-Asheville.
Renowned for a bold layout, everything is big at True Blue – the fairways, waste bunkers, greens and most of all, the fun. Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golfweek have each ranked the Mike Strantz design among its top 100 public courses.
With five sets of tees, ranging from 4,995 to 7,126 yards and a layout that rewards both power and precision, True Blue is ideally suited to host men’s and women’s events simultaneously.
One of the most popular destinations in the Southeast, Pawleys Island is home to a number of top golf courses, including three top 100 courses – True Blue, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and Heritage Club – and a bevy of designs that take advantage of the area’s stunning Lowcountry landscape. The golf courses are on mainland Pawleys Island, just across the causeways from historic Pawleys, which was been a seaside destination since the 1700s.
