While the U.S. Women’s Open’s annual tradition dates back to 1946, the history of golf in the United States dates all the way back to 1739and it all started right here in Charleston.

A financial ledger of Scottish businessman Andrew Wallace, dated June 1739, recorded payments for golf clubs + balls that were delivered to Wallace’s brother William in ‘Charleston, Carolina.’ Shortly thereafter, in 1786, South Carolina Golf Club was founded in Charlestonciting Charleston as the “birthplace” of American Golf.
