“An historic course, in an historic city.
Charleston was the birth place of golf in America.”

— Mayor John Tecklenburg

“Tiger Woods, Lee Trevino, Calvin Peete – all of these guys started out their careers learning the game of golf on a municipal golf course. With what we’re doing in protecting the integrity of this place for generations to come, my hope is one day we’ll be able to add to this list with one of our own Charlestonians who started here at the Muni and went on to do great things in the game of golf.” — Troy Miller, Golf Course Architect
