The J.P. Traynham is a 36-hole, individual stroke play tournament that has been held since 1971 (except 1979 when the course was under renovation), always over the last weekend in April. Many of the area’s best players have competed in the event over the years – three time winners include Dillard Traynham, Kyle Turner, Johnny League, Mike Gravley and Marcus Grumbles.

J.P. Traynham, who became the second greens superintendent at Greenville Country Club in 1925, opened Paris Mountain Country Club in 1938. He became an expert and helped many clubs change from sand to grass greens. He was one of the early pioneers in promoting golf.

Winners of the 1st Annual Tucker Hipps Memorial Tournament: Jon Birckbichler, Shane Birckbichler, Jeremy Revis, and Tim Mauldin with 12 under. Thank you to everyone who supported this event and all of the players, donors, and volunteers who helped make it happen.

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. In remembrance of their only child, Cindy and Gary Hips desire to give back to the things in Tucker's life that he loved. Tucker was a Senior Counselor with Palmetto Boys State. In his honor a scholarship fund has been created that will award scholarships each year to a senior counselor as well as defer the costs for needs-based young men to participate. 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.

In 2015 the club was once again back under the control of the Traynham family. With the club's long rich history and the touch of the family it has once again brought a boon to the business.
