“Callawassie Island Golf Club has been a great home for Big East golf for the past three years and we are very excited to be extending this relationship through 2022. The course itself is one of the top courses that our student-athletes play on all year and it makes for an outstanding setting for the Championships. However, Callawassie is much more than just an exceptional course. It is the professional staff and members that have made our past championships so memorable. The people at Callawassie Island make it such a special place.” – Chris Schneider, Associate Commissioner for Olympic Sports.
