A field of 100 golfers is expected for the ninth annual Mount Pleasant Charity Open that will be played Aug. 6-8 at Patriots Point Links.
Jarrett Swan, a two-time Charleston City Amateur winner who is now playing professionally, is the defending champion after posting a 14-under-par total of 202 in the 2020 Mount Pleasant Open.
Proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit the Bobby Jones Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation. The tournament has raised approximately $50,000 for charities over the past eight years.
The entry fee for the 54-hole tournament is $225 per player. Competition is held in three divisions: a Championship division open to pros and amateurs; an Open division that will be flighted after 36 holes; and a Senior division for players 55 and older, also flighted after 36 holes. There will be a total purse of more than $5,000.
The entry deadline is Aug. 3.
