Dataw Island again honored to host the qualifier for the On Course Foundation's Simpson Cup, an annual Ryder Cup styled tournament between 12 injured servicemen and veterans from the UK and USA. 

 

Prestigious Simpson Cup Qualifier Hosted on Dataw Island

According to a 2015 article on Forbes.com, ‘In the U.S., the game (golf) is enjoyed by 25 million Americans who play 455 million rounds annually at the nation’s 15,350 facilities. It is nearly $70 billion industry, supporting two million jobs and $55.6 billion in annual wage income.’Suffice it to say, the golfing industry is a safe place to begin a successful career and that is precisely why one charity, the On Course Foundation, supports the rehabilitation of wounded, injured and sick service-members and veterans through the medium of golf.While their main goal is to offer work placements and opportunities to service personnel and veterans suffering from physical and mental injuries, they also offer comprehensive golf tuition from their training professionals. Their reasons for doing so are simple – they believe that the sport of golf offers members a way to socialize and compete healthily, thereby improving confidence as well as physical and mental strength. In 2012, the On Course Foundation began the Simpson Cup, an annual Ryder Cup styled tournament between 12 injured servicemen and veterans from the UK and USA. The tournament is named after its founder, John Simpson, the former Senior Vice President of International Management Group (IMG), who has only one fully functioning leg as a result of suffering from polio as a child.Throughout the year, the On Course Foundation hosts several qualifiers in the U.S. to select the 12 lucky service members who will take part in the Simpson Cup playing for the home team. One of those qualifiers takes place here the Beaufort area every year on Dataw Island’s award winning Cotton Dike Course, a Tom Fazio design that has hosted the 2015 CGA Senior Amateur, the 2015 South Carolina Open and the 2016 South Carolina Open, along with many other amateur and professional events. This year, the qualifier will take place Thursday, July 14th through Saturday, July 16th.“We are proud to be able to host the Simpson Cup Qualifier,” Dave Britton, Dataw Island’s Director of Golf, said. “Many veterans live here on Dataw and the membership is very supportive of military charities and foundations.”
