Greenwood Communities & Resorts has provided the Hilton Head Island Celebrity Golf Tournament with a world-class golf course every year since the tournament’s inception in 1979.
As a show of appreciation, the Hilton Head Island Celebrity Golf Foundation will host a special opening ceremony, “Greenwood Appreciation Day,” honoring Greenwood’s commitment and contribution to the tournament during its 30-year history. A number of noteworthy guests, including tournament founders, community leaders and dignitaries, will be present for this unique tournament kickoff.
Paul Smith, who has been with the foundation for about 10 years and is Chairman of the foundation’s Council of Trustees, and Cary Griffin, also a member of the Council of Trustees and with the organization since the first tourney, believe this is a wonderful and appropriate way to acknowledge Greenwood’s longtime dedication and invaluable contributions.
Said Smith, “They’ve been with us for 30 years — 31 this year. That’s pretty unusual as far as partnerships go, especially in this day and age.” He added, “The tournament is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun for a great cause. We greatly appreciate their [Greenwood's] support and all they have done to help us make a difference in children’s lives.”
Griffin shares this sentiment stating, “Greenwood has been the steady financial resource for the entire history of the tournament — always willing to lend a hand — and they deserve recognition. Besides the tournament, Greenwood has done so much for the island.”
Beloved golf journalist/author Jim Huber, a tournament supporter and participant for years, will be among the 2011 celebrity attendees and has agreed to emcee the “Greenwood Appreciation Day” opening ceremony.
On day one of the foundation’s exciting three-day tourney, Friday, September 2, following the special opening ceremony emceed by well-known golf journalist/author Jim Huber, you’ll play your first round on the magnificent Robert Trent Jones Course at Greenwood’s Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.
