About The Blade Junior Classic


In 1999, The Blade Junior Golf Classic was founded by a group of Thornblade Club members with a passion for creating the best junior golf tournament experience for junior golfers and their families. After 20 plus years, a dedicated board of directors and a team of generous sponsors, The Blade has developed into one of the most premiere tournaments in junior golf. Since its inception, The Blade has sought to provide support for local charities, having donated nearly $1.5 million to charities in South Carolina.


Through a continued effort to support junior golf, The Blade began supporting the Dick and Lucille Hendley Scholarship Fund in 2021. Through partnering with the Hendley family, one male and female Blade participant who exemplifies great character, a passion for community service and a desire to excel in the classroom will be eligible to receive scholarship assistance.


Prior to the 54-hole stroke play tournament, a Junior-Am tournament is held for sponsors of The Blade to raise funds for local children’s charities. The Junior-Am tournament is set to take place Monday, July 17, 2023.
