As you drove down Knight's Hill Road and turned onto Country Club Road going into the Camden Country Club last weekend, it was obvious that something great was happening besides the change of weather from hot, summer-like to cold, fall-like temperatures. Then you saw the signs pointing to the upper parking lots for team vans parking.

Some of the nation's best collegiate golfers will make their way to the Camden Country Club for the two-day Camden Collegiate Invitational to be played on Saturday and Sunday over the Donald Ross-designed layout.
Like online tickets for a rock concert, when online registration for the Creed Boys' Invitational golf tournament at the Camden Country Club opened earlier this spring, the available spaces were gobbled up in some 30 minutes.
Number nine seed Phillip Oweida and William Rainey of Charlotte, needed 18 holes and a late birdie on hole 17 to defeat the 15th seed team of Michael Thigpen and Gregg Jones of Florence, 1-up in the 18-hole championship match at Sunday's 65th Carolinas Four-Ball Championship hosted by the Camden Country Club.
Matt McCarley watched as some of the best college golfers the Palmetto State and, in some cases, the country, had to offer walked off the Camden County Club's 18th green shaking their head in near disbelief as to how such a short course could provide such a long round of golf.
