Schneider Captures 64th S.C. Open

The Carolinas PGA hosted its 64th Annual South Carolina Open, presented by Yamaha Golf Cars, April 22-23 at Dataw Island Club. The highly anticipated 36-hole tournament brought together over 100 participants for two exciting days of golf on the Cotton Dike Course.   Cory Schneider, PGA Teaching Professional from The Pointe Golf Club in Powells Point, NC took home this year’s champion’s crystal. Schneider opened the championship with an impressive round of 68 (-4) to lead by one stroke. At one point, four competitors held a share of first place at two under par.  However, Schneider stood up to the challenge and made a number of solid shots and putts – none more important than his up-and-down for par from 110 yards on hole #17. That save gave him a one-stroke advantage coming to the scenic par-5 hole #18 set along Dataw Island Club’s neighboring salt marshes.  Schneider proceeded to steal the show by draining a 25-foot uphill birdie putt.  His two-day total was 68-73=141 (-3), and he received a first prize professional check of $3,000.   Mike Townsend, PGA Head Professional at Kiawah Island Club’s Cassique course on Kiawah Island, SC,  finished a few groups ahead of Schneider with rounds of 73-70-143 (-1),  earning second place. Amateur Joseph Cansler from Clemmons, NC and Eerik Kauppinen, PGA Head Professional from Regent Park Golf Club in Fort Mill, SC, finished tied for third at 144 (E).   The 64th SC Open is an official CPGA Bob Boyd Player of the Year Presented by Omega points event and is one of the most highly anticipated CPGA events of the season.  We’re thrilled to have hosted a successful tournament, and we thank all of those who volunteered and participated. A special thanks to the team at Dataw Island Club for their hospitality.

April 22 officially declared North Carolina Golf Day

As part of North Carolina Golf Day, Carolinas Golf Association Executive Director Jack Nance met Wednesday in the Old Capitol Building with legislators and allied golf leaders. Governor Pat McCrory declared April 22 as North Carolina Golf Day in appreciation of the golf industry's contribution to our state. Director of Golf at Old Chatham GC and CPGA Vice President, John Marino, poses with NC Golf Day Proclamation, Governor Pat McCrory and various members of The North Carolina Alliance of Golf as they celebrate the special occasion.      The golf industry is represented in every county of North Carolina through more than 550 courses in the state. A 2013 study performed by SRI International confirms the golf industry's role as a major economic driver in North Carolina, contributing a $4.2 billion annual economic benefit to the state. North Carolina golf provides the basis for close to 53,000 jobs and $1.3 billion in wage income alone (2011 figures).     This is a wonderful accomplishment for North Carolina and goes to show that golf is much more than just a game.    Read full article   View More...

Event Updates from HQ

TAKING PLACE: The CPGA District 10 Meeting, led by District 10 Director, Rick Murphy, is in progress today and tomorrow at Pity's Sake Lodge in China Grove, NC! POSTPONED: Old North State CPGA Senior Open    Due to unfavorable playing conditions, the decision has been made to postpone and reschedule the Old North State CPGA Senior Open. We apologize very much for the timing of this news, however, the following factors have led us to this decision:   1.   The weather forecast for Monday includes 80% chance of showers beginning late in the day Monday, continuing through Monday night, with 100% chance of rain all day Tuesday.   2.   The condition of the golf course is unfortunately not where McConnell Golf, Old North State Club, and the Carolinas PGA would like it to be to showcase to our members and guests.   We feel these factors would not give this event as much value as it should. Again, we realize the timing of this decision is not ideal and do apologize for that.   The tournament IS going to be rescheduled for July 20-21, 2015.   Thank you everyone for your understanding and cooperation with this decision. For further information regarding this event, please visit /Tournaments/tournament/6212/     View More...
