The South Carolina Open Pro-Am supports two non-profit organizations dedicated to growing the game in our area. PGA REACH Carolinas is the philanthropic arm of the Carolinas PGA Section, the largest of the 41 PGA sections in the nation, whose 2,000 members across North and South Carolina are committed to serving our communities and growing the game of golf through its three pillars: youth, military, and diversity & inclusion.

Project Golf is dedicated to advocating the virtues of golf, along with providing an introduction to the game, instruction, and improved access for all golfers seeking to become involved with the sport.  Particular focus will be applied to youth golf and development and with providing access, instruction and rehabilitation to disabled veterans.
