This memorial golf event was held in memory of Tucker W. Hipps, a 19 year old who died tragically during an early morning run while a sophomore at Clemson University.

All proceeds from this event will go to benefit this scholarship fund.

About PMCC

Paris Mountain Country Club was established in 1938 by J.P. Traynham, a well known golf leader in the Upstate of South Carolina. He took an old A-model type truck to cut the fairways with. Traynham and his children built and ran the course until the 1960s, a family whose name has remained synonymous with golf.
