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. In this age of “grip it and rip it” golf where designers put more emphasis on how long a layout is as opposed to the challenges presented by an array of unique short holes along with the occasional drivable par fives, the par 70 Camden Country Club offers golfers the chance to put their shot creativity to work. If your short game is not good to go, it could be make for a long two days and 54 holes of golf at this weekend’s second annual Camden Collegiate Invitational (CCI) to be hosted at the Knights Hill Road facility.
