Daufuskie Island, S.C. - Haig Point, one of South Carolina's most exclusive private clubs, is excited to announce that it will host the inaugural Rees Jones Collegiate Invitational on the Signature Course, September 6 - 8, 2008.

The tournament, which will be hosted annually by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones and Haig Point, will consist of 12 to 15 men's teams. Eleven universities have already committed to the tournament and include: Michigan State, Connecticut, Jackson State, Eastern Michigan, San Diego State, Toledo, Columbia, Texas-Arlington, Georgia State, Methodist, and San Jose State.

The teams will play a practice round on September 6, followed by 36 holes of competition on September 7 with the final 18 holes played on September 8. The Michigan State University golf team, led by head coach Sam Puryear, will serve as the host school for this year's tournament. Puryear helped make the tournament possible by partnering with Mark Nordman, Haig Point's chief operating officer.
