Keowee Key Hosts our Service Men

Each year, the Keowee Key Golf and Country Club hosts a group of around 40 Marines as part of a “Honoring Their Service” event.

The group hails from Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. along with the South Carolina “Wounded Warrior Regiment”.

The festivities start with an extended parade with hundreds of  motor cycle riders accompanying the group as a colorful honor guard and escort along with  literally thousands of South Carolinians  waving flags, tooting horns and showing their appreciation.

All are here for some well deserved rest, relaxation and fun.

The residents of Keowee Key welcome these soldiers into their homes each year and honor them with with a formal dinner and extend to them loving hospitality and  the full use of the community’s extensive amenities.

Residents volunteer their boats, fishing gear, personal water crafts and golf clubs to insure these Marines have a great time.

The soldiers enjoy beautiful lake Keowee with  water skiing, kayaking, personal watercrafts and  fishing . They also enjoy golf, tennis, pickleball, hiking and more.

It is a heart warming event that nourishes both the Marines and the residents each year.
