The Bluffton Breeze recently ran the following article about our hosting of the annual First Tee Golf Tournament…
Colleton River Club hosted a golf tournament benefiting First Tee of the Lowcountry, a charitable organization that
teaches life skills and leadership through the game of golf. For the 108 participants the day began with a luncheon at the
Nicklaus Clubhouse, followed by play on the course and culminating with a dinner and auction.
While this was the first time Colleton River hosted First Tee’s annual tournament, the community has supported this
important and empowering organization for quite some time. In recent years Colleton River Club has hosted several
First Tee events and in 2015 proceeds from the community-hosted Junior Pro Am went to the charity, totaling more than
$100,000. Children that have benefited from First Tee programs volunteered as Greeters for the participants.
“The Colleton River Membership as a whole shares a charitable philosophy,” said Tim Bakels, General Manager of
Colleton River Club. “Our continued support of this very worthy cause is one of many examples. We had 5 Member teams
participate in the event and learned that at least one Member was so moved that they decided to begin volunteering for
Colleton River Club is located in Bluffton, SC just 1.5 miles from the bridge to Hilton Head Island. This Member-owned
private golf community features 705 properties situated on a peninsula surrounded by 7 miles of scenic shoreline.
The award-winning, signature 18-hole golf courses by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye each have their own unique and
distinguished Clubhouses. Additional community amenities include an Augusta-style Par 3 course, the Stan Smith Tennis
and Swim Center with 6 Har-Tru courts and a Jr. Olympic Pool, as well as a large & modern fitness center, and a community
dock with deep water access, and a state-of-the-art golf practice park and a Learning Center unrivaled in the Southeast.
On Wednesday mornings, when the Dye course is closed for maintenance, you may have seen a group of Colleton River Members walking the course. This group is looking for birdies and eagles using binoculars instead of golf clubs. They are members of the Colleton River Birding Club and they always welcome new members!
