Local officials optimistic after PGA Tour event in Jasper County

Some of the world’s top golfers left Jasper County’s Congaree Golf Club at the conclusion of the Palmetto Championship on June 13, and local officials said the impressions they left behind were positive. 

“On behalf of the Jasper County Chamber of Commerce, I want to thank Congaree for bringing the Palmetto Championship to Jasper County,” chamber executive director Kendall Malphrus said. “They are an asset to the county and did a wonderful job with the tournament.” 

Congaree was selected to host the one-time PGA Tour event this spring after COVID-19 travel restrictions canceled the annual RBC Canadian Open. 

Malphrus said she attended the tournament each day, meeting numerous people and making good connections for the future. She said while this was a new event and there would always be a learning curve, the tournament was a good one. 

“The county really came through and I thought it was a fabulous tournament,” she said.
