BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
The Heritage Classic Foundation has unveiled a new fundraiser to benefit its scholarship program. The Tartan Club was first introduced in 1999, but was reinvented in 2013 when the foundation created the Champions Club.
Membership in the Tartan Club is open to individuals who share a desire to help others by giving to charity and who have a fondness for the game of golf.
The Tartan Club is back because prominent community leaders wanted a way to help fund the Heritage Scholar Program, according to Heritage Classic Foundation trustee and Tartan Club chairman Scott Richardson.
The Scholar Program funds college scholarships for outstanding Beaufort County high school seniors.
Seven Beaufort County seniors were named when the Scholar Program was created in 1993. They each received a four-year scholarship for their continuing education. The foundation also awards annual scholarships to seven University of South Carolina Beaufort and Technical College of the Lowcountry students.
In 2016, seven new scholars will be named, increasing the total number of award recipients since 1993 to 274. The foundation’s goal is to increase the number of full scholarships awarded.
Throughout the years, the four-year award opportunity has increased to a range of $18,000 to $22,000 for each student. More than $3.6 million in scholarships has been awarded to Beaufort County students since the program’s inception.
All members of the Tartan Club make a yearly contribution to the Heritage Classic Foundation Scholar Program.
Members who wish to enjoy exclusive hospitality at the RBC Heritage Presented By Boeing may purchase a tournament credential package. The credential package includes a unique Tartan Clubhouse badge with special access to the all-new Tartan Club skybox on the 17th green, which includes upscale food and beverage options and access to the Heritage House venue on the course. Members also receive a parking pass and an invitation to the Tartan Club Reception, along with other event invitations throughout the year.

The RBC Heritage has also renewed its Patriot Partners program, which raises money to support military families in the Lowcountry and throughout the state.
Donations will be distributed among the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and Operation R&R.
The tournament again will offer free tickets to active-duty military and their families.
