2017 SCITC Golf Tournament Honoring Fritz Missell
Patriot’s Point Golf Links is located on the edge of the Charleston Harbor and offers distinctive views of the city, Fort Sumter, and ships from around the world. You will not find better finishing holes in Charleston with the Par 4 on 16, which requires a pin point drive and precise iron into a multi-tiered green. The Par 3 on 17 is an Island Green with multiple wind variations. There are only 2 consequences; land on the green or in the surrounding marsh. The Par 5 on 18 is a narrow finishing hole that requires 3 accurate shots to reach this green, which is no easy measure with the wind from the Charleston Harbor. When you arrive at Patriot’s Point on November 1, there will be free range balls provided, a boxed lunch, free beer and soft drinks. Prizes will be awarded for first and second place, closest to the pin, long drive, long putt, and for the lucky person to hit a hole in one. There will also be nice giveaways in the cart, as well as gift prizes after the tournament. We hope that you chose to join us for a great day of golf and networking. The Golf Professional and his team provide an excellent golf venue and look forward to serving us. Arrive early to participate in a pre-tournament putting contest for a $50 gift card!

About the Family Circle Tennis Center
(from their website)
In 2000, Family Circle magazine became the first title sponsor to partner with city and county municipalities to build a state-of-the-art tennis facility that would be home to America’s oldest all-women’s professional tennis event. With support from the City of Charleston, Daniel Island, the state of South Carolina, and Charleston and Berkeley counties, the $15 million dollar Family Circle Tennis Center was opened in the spring of 2001. On August 31, 2015, a new title sponsor for the Charleston WTA event was announced with the tournament name changing to the Volvo Car Open. Surrounded by lush landscape and century old oaks, the Family Circle Tennis Center was designed to highlight the charm and beauty of the Lowcountry.
This award-winning public facility is first class in every sense of the word. With 20 championship tennis courts (14 clay, 6 hard and all courts lighted for night play), the Tennis Center is a 32-acre state of the art facility highlighted by the 10,200 seat Family Circle Stadium. A unique 10,000 square foot Clubhouse serves as the hub of activity on a year-round basis. The first level of the Clubhouse features the Tennis Center Pro Shop. The Pro Shop offers a multitude of amenities for club members and patrons, including tennis clothing, luxury locker room facilities, racquets, accessories and professional stringing services. The clubhouse also serves as the corporate headquarters for the Volvo Car Open. Overlooking the majestic Althea Gibson Club Court and a stone’s throw from the water, the Clubhouse mirrors the traditional, architectural charm synonymous with the South.
More than just a premier tennis facility, the Family Circle Stadium has hosted a variety of events throughout the year – Volvo Car Open, Dunlop Junior Tennis Championship, Annual Holiday Classic sponsored by Allstate Wally Burbage benefiting Shawn Jenkins MUSC Children’s Hospital, and concerts including Hootie & the Blowfish, Boston, Doobie Brothers, Earth, Wind & Fire, Bryan Adams, Counting Crows, Sublime, The Lumineers, Barenaked Ladies, FUN., Sugarland, Zac Brown Band, O.A.R., Don Henley, Chris Stapleton and the Beach Boys.
