PGA trades in golf clubs, for hammers in Habitat Build

Posted: Updated:

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) – The PGA Championship may be a few weeks away, but that didn't stop organizers from trading in their golf clubs for hammers.

The PGA is teaming up with Sea Island Habitat for Humanity to build a home on Johns Island before the tournament starts in August. Over the next two weeks, the house will be built from the ground up.

"So that we can leave something behind from the championship that reflects the commitment of everyone associated with the championship to the community to Johns Island," said President of Kiawah Island Golf Resort, Roger Warren.

"This we felt was an appropriate way to say thank you and glad to be a part of the community during the week of the championship and we want you to know how much we care."

The entire Executive Team from the PGA Championship came out on Saturday to kick off the Championship build.

The build will last until July 7th at Obadiah Court on Johns Island.

"I think that everyone is proud to be here and look around and see a great sense of accomplishment of what we are able to get done and what we are able to build and there is no better feeling than giving back to the community," Warren said.

If you are interested in volunteering you are asked to email, pgaforhabitat@gmail.com, or call, (843) 768-6003.
