It is with great regret that we will be unable to play the 2020 Lowcountry Senior Invitational as scheduled.
Taking a cue from the R &A, the event, originally scheduled for May 22-25, 2020, will be postponed until May 24-26, 2021.
We discussed with the clubs what measures they would have to take in order to present the event. All were very flexible and accommodating but as the discussion got into more detail it became obvious that the timing and challenges were just too great.
An additional consideration is that all three of the clubs have been operating with severe restrictions for over a month. This includes a total prohibition of guest play. While this might relax somewhat during the month of May, it is unreasonable to expect these private clubs to welcome 93 players from all over the country while the spread of the Covid -19 virus is still uncertain. The health and welfare of their members and club staff is (and should be) at the forefront of their thinking.
Add to this the concern for the health and safety of our participants and it was a decision that made itself.
