Columbia County sees an increase in business thanks to golfers hitting the tee

Columbia County is now preparing for its fifth annual Augusta National Women’s Amateur, a two-week golf event that brings attention and revenue to the area. Local businesses are excited for the influx of visitors, and many are seeing a spike in customers and revenue during the tournament.

Ironwood Tavern General Manager, Daniel Rhobes, shared his excitement about the increase in business during the tournament. “We’re thrilled to see so many people coming to town,” he said. “Our employees are making more money, and we’re welcoming new faces every day.” Just minutes away from the course, dessert shop Vampire Penguin is also benefiting from the surge in customers. Owner Marvin Walker enjoys introducing out-of-state visitors to their desserts.

As businesses gear up for the tournament, they are learning from past experiences to better prepare for the crowds. Ironwood Tavern orders extra food and wine to meet the demand, while Rooted Coffee sees a surge of customers looking for a morning pick-me-up before hitting the course. Both businesses are experiencing a positive impact from the tournament, creating a win-win situation for everyone involved.
