Following in the victors' footsteps
IJGA Junior Open past champions have found success in their future endeavors. PGA TOUR player Kyle Stanley won the 2004 tournament and was a three-time Rolex Junior All-American. Before Stanley turned professional, he earned All-America and All-Conference accolades while playing for Clemson. Current LPGA players victorious at the event include the 1994 inaugural event champion Cristie Kerr. Beth Bauer (1995, 1997), Virada Nirapathpongporn (1998) and Julieta Granada (2003) also won the tournament before continuing their golf careers at the highest level.
Chechessee Creek Club
The natural marshland that borders the course gives it a classic southern feel. The many natural hazards of the course provide a challenge to beginners and veterans alike, while the natural beauty of the course is second to none.
