Vicki Shivers - Thursday, August 11, 2011

A Labor Day Weekend tradition on the Island, The Hilton Head Celebrity Golf Tournament matches amateur golfers of any skill level with a well known celebrity for a three day tournament that is as fun to watch as it is to play in.  

The weekend long family event kicks off on Friday September 2nd, 2011 and play continues throughout the holiday weekend at several of the Island’s top golf courses. The celebrity roster for the Hilton Head Celebrity Golf Tournament is filled with an impressive combination of sports heroes, actors, musicians and some of the best entertainers of all time.

The first Tournament was played on the Island in 1979 and has raised more than $3.8M for local children’s charities. The Tournament supports programs that are designed to help disadvantaged children in the Hilton Head area lead happy, healthy and successful lives and benefits local charities including: Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry, Child Abuse Prevention Association, Children’s Relief Fund, Deep Well Children’s Program, Heroes on Horseback, Hospice Care of the Lowcountry, Hilton Head Island Recreation Association, Volunteers in Medicine Clinic and more.

There is still time to register to join in on the fun and play in or sponsor the Tournament. Customizable packages are available to include fun for golfers, spouse spa retreats and kid friendly activities, so the whole family can take part of the Labor Day Weekend fun!
