2015 Icebreaker Open Information

 


2015 Icebreaker Open!


I can't believe that the 2014 season is officially over. With that being said, we want to thank everyone for a great 2014 season and we are looking forward to 2015. The 2015 schedule will be released soon and I promise you that we have the best schedule of courses that we have ever seen! It all starts with the annual Ice Breaker Open January 17 and 18. This year we will be playing the Robert Trent Jones course at Palmetto Dunes on Saturday and on Sunday we will be playing Harbour Town (yes that Harbour Town) in Sea Pines. Below are a few things that we need to pass along about this event. We look forward to seeing everyone in January. Any questions, just let us know.

We are without a doubt getting the 2015 season started with a bang!
