With the cancelation of the Canadian Open the tour moves back to South Carolina to the Tom Fazio designed Congaree Golf Club which is situated on an historic 18th-century estate, and surrounded by over 2,000 acres of lakes and longleaf pine forests.

The course looks very natural but Fazio did move tons of earth, he also moved and replanted enormous pine trees, some of which are over a century old and introduced forced carries over waste areas too wide fairways and wide greens.

Green surrounds are the course’s biggest defence, tightly mowed run off areas so If you miss the green then you will pay the penalty as getting up and down to make par will be very hard. The turf is firm and fast with whispery fescue framing some of the holes and is also present inside some of these bunkers, which I am sure the tour players are going to hate.
