The Congaree Foundation provides resources for educational and vocational mentorship opportunities to help shape the lives of ambitious youths who share a passion for golf.
Its signature program is the Congaree Global Golf Initiative (CGGI), an immersive collegiate preparatory curriculum tailored toward high school students in the U.S. and internationally.
Chapter student Tyler Mistretta attended CGGI this summer. Due to Covid, CGGI for 2020 was held digitally over a week this summer.
“It was an incredible experience,” said Tyler. “I have a few friends that have attended before, so I knew what to expect, but it was even better. The instructors and counselors taught me so much about college golf recruiting and continue to mentor me through the process. I hope to visit Congaree in person some time very soon.”
Participants attend Congaree each summer and work with educators, guidance counselors and golf instructors to advance their preparation for the college admissions process and prepare them for success in life.
Congaree Golf Club, which opened in 2017, is an 18-hole, par-71 course located in Ridgeland, South Carolina. In 2018, Golf Digest named Congaree the best private course in the United States.
