RBC Heritage economic impact expected to grow this year
In 1969, Hilton Head Island was a little-known place in our state’s Lowcountry when a local developer announced that a PGA-level golf tournament would be played there that year. It’s still held there every year and has recently been elevated to the status of a top tour event with a purse of $20 million and a commitment to play from the tour’s top players. This will also undoubtedly have an elevated impact on our state’s economy. Mike Switzer interviews Steve Wilmot, director of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing coming for its 55th year April 10-16.
