The Hilton Head Island Amateur Golf Association Four-Ball Championship returns to Bear Creek Golf Club this weekend.

The 36-hole, better-ball event will be contested by 16 teams in the championship flight. The tournament also includes a senior and handicap division.

Bear Creek has drawn praise from HHIAGA director Bob Collar in past years for the condition of its greens.

Among the notable teams will be Collar and former tour professional John Patterson. Jeff Wong is paired with J.D. Hoft, who won the association's opening event and was the 2012 Beaufort City champion. And Joe Bryant will team with Rob Simmons, who will be the two-time defending champion at the HHIAGA Amateur Championship next month.
