For a 4th year, The Reserve has been selected as a host course for the 2016 BMW Charity Pro-Am Tournament

Celebrating its 16th year in 2016, the BMW Charity Pro-Am tournament will be held May 16-22.   The Reserve at Lake Keowee will be one of the host courses along with Thornblade Club and The Preserve at Verdae.  This is the only tournament on the Tour where amateurs and celebrities are grouped with Tour professionals in a 4-day better-ball competition over 3 courses.  To date, more than 120 celebrities, including Kurt Russell, Wayne Gretzky, Catherine Bell, Kevin Costner and Dennis Quaid, have participated in the tournament, which is broadcast worldwide by the Golf Channel.
