Professional golf returns to the Lowcountry next month here at Congaree Golf Club for the CJ CUP, but here at Congaree, it’s just as much about that golf as it is the charitable mission.
The club has raised over 15-point-five million for charity since they opened in 2017 according to officials that includes their Congaree Global Golf Initiative that had 36 students this year and is supposed to grow to 48 next year.
It’s resonated with the professional players.
“When I grew up I was fortunate to have access to a golf course, and I fell in love with it. I had a lot of great people around me. Some great mentors and people that kind of guided me to be able to provide that to kids that may not have that access means a lot,” J.T. Poston said.
Alumni from the CGGI program will be at the tournament with four of them service as standard bearers for the leaders that Saturday.
The CJ CUP is expected to further this mission.
At the Media Day the big announcement to come from tournament officials is that current FedEx Cup champion, Rory McIlroy has committed to play.
The course is challenging and unlike most that players see each week on the tour fans can expect a great week of golf.
“You are getting the best players in the world playing at a golf course that is very challenging, and it’s amazing to hear how many players who are committing, not only committing to the fact that it is a big tournament- it is a tournament that a lot of them have played in Korea, but also the fact that it’s being played here,” Andre Silva said.
Officials say they’re expecting even more fans to attend this time around.
The CJ CUP will be played here at Congaree Golf Club October 20th through the 23rd and tickets are on sale now.
