For nearly three hundred years, South Carolina has played a vital role in American golf. The first golf clubs in America came from Scotland to Charleston in 1739. Myrtle Beach is sometimes called the Golf Capital of the World, with more than eighty golf courses. The Country Club of Charleston produced World Golf Hall of Fame members Henry Picard and Beth Daniel. The 1991 Ryder Cup matches, the War by the Shore, took place at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course, also the site of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championships. Hilton Head's Harbour Town Golf Links has hosted the PGA Tour's RBC Heritage for more than fifty years. Bob Gillespie and Tommy Braswell detail the history of the game in the Palmetto State.
