ABOUT THE South Carolina Senior Four-Ball

The SCGA Senior Four Ball Championship began in 1994 as an opportunity for individuals over the age of 55 to have a true partners Championship.

With the emphasis on lower handicapped seniors, the SCGA was allowed more freedom to move the Senior Four Ball across the State and the ability set up more challenging venues for the players looking for stronger competition. Not to cut all players out of the opportunity to win something, the SCGA flights the field after the first round to give everyone a sporting chance for a victory of some kind.
