AMI Kids Croquet Tournament Set for May 15th

For the past 24 years, Owners at Brays Island Plantation in Sheldon, SC have invited individuals and businesses throughout the county to support the AMI Kids Beaufort formerly called Beaufort Marine Institute. Teams from all over the county come to compete in the spirit of having fun and raising funds for this terrific cause.
Since IGM began maintaining the Brays Island Plantation Golf Course in 2008, our team has been responsible for laying out and preparing the courts for this event. At the conclusion of the club’s Member/Guest, the driving range tee is closed and intensive maintenance practices begin. From a range tee that shows the traffic of a busy golf season to a top quality croquet surface in just two weeks.
About AMI Kids
AMI Kids which has "campuses" throughout the country, is the last hope for third strike delinquent boys. AMI saves these kids and makes them productive citizens in today's society. The local chapter has a 78 % success rate, while state and county centers can claim around 15 %. With the decrease in funding over the years, this fundraiser is even more important. In the past 24 years, the money raised has purchased a boat, a van, and an outdoor teaching center, to name just a few items. For more information visit
