The Palmetto is an open tournament, available to any spring season high school golf team whose home state has approved sanctioning thru the National High School Federation.  A team must have at least four (4) participants to compete and no more than five (5). 

The tournament will be conducted as a 54-hole team stroke play championship. Teams will consist of five (5) players, using the low four (4) scores to determine the team total. The Round one qualifier will flight teams into groups of 16 - 20 teams, using a differential equation that allows the entire field to be ranked against one another, regardless of their qualifying course. They will then compete for awards within their flight using their total 36-hole gross team score during rounds two and three. Once all starting five (5) players begin tournament play, no substitutions will be allowed.

Entry for the tournament is $220 per student golfer and includes three (3) tournament rounds of golf, meal plan (lunch all three tournament days & breakfast on Saturday), range access prior to golf each tournament round, gift bag and awards. 

Golf cart access and the meal plan are complimentary for up to two coaches per team.

Coach’s tournament takes place during the Thursday & Friday rounds.  Awards and prizes are handed out each day based upon a blind draw, best ball format.  Although participants will not know who their partner is during play, they are welcome to play with fellow coaches in the same pairing. Cost is $120 per coach.

Daily scores will be available each evening at palmettogolfchampionship.com and on GolfStat at golfstat.com/results. In addition, final results will be posted at juniorgolfscoreboard.com.  The top three (3) teams in each flight will be awarded.
