The Charleston Symphony Orchestra League, Inc. (CSOL) will host “Swing for the Symphony 2020,” a golf event at the Country Club of Charleston on Monday, October 5th. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Charleston Symphony (CSO) and CSOL music scholarships.
Teams will be challenged by the par-71 Country Club of Charleston course designed by Seth Raynor, known for recreating the strategy and design of well-known Scottish golf courses. Number 11 is an especially notorious replica of number 15 at North Berwick. The Country Club of Charleston is recognized as one of the Southeast’s premiere courses, with sweeping vistas along the Wappoo Creek toward Charleston Harbor.
Registration begins at 10:30 am, and the Shamble-format tournament kicks off at noon. Prizes will be awarded for a hole-in-one, closest to the pin men, and closest to the pin women. Register early for the best price: $400 per player or $1,600 per foursome. After September 1st: $450 per player or $1800 per foursome.
The event includes lunch, a silent auction, post-golf reception, and outstanding prizes, including golf outings at some of the finest private clubs and resorts. Music will be provided by members of the Charleston Symphony Brass.
