The Beaufort City Championship is headed back to Cat Island, where the professional is the defending champion.
The 17th annual tournament, open to Beaufort County residents, will be held at Fripp Island's Ocean Point course on Saturday and move to the Sanctuary Club on Cat Island on Sunday for the final round.
"We're going to try something different," Fripp Island director of golf Char Cormier said in July.
Sanctuary Club pro Reed Weatherford won the 2013 event at Fripp Island, shooting a final-round 67 to coast to a five-shot victory.
Never miss a local story.
Cormier said area pros talked about stretching the event to three days but decided against it. He said the new format should be helpful for those who don't want to drive to Fripp two days.
Players will be placed in three flights based on first day scores. There will also be a senior division for those 65 and older.
