Each year, dozens of high-achieving and under-resourced high school golfers are invited to Congaree to work with renowned instructors. At the end of a memorable week of teaching, college admissions prep, and competition, these students leave prepared with all the tools to succeed on the road ahead and earn a quality college education.
A little over a year in development, we’re finally ready to introduce the world to LowcoGolf.com, which we hope will become your headquarters for golf in the South Carolina Lowcountry. We’ll cover local golfers and tournaments from the juniors to the pros, report on news from the local golf industry, and provide course reviews and features to help you navigate the Lowcountry golf scene. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
