In a burst of entrepreneurial daring, The Hayes' resolved to turn their most beloved diversions of golf, eating and drinking into a means of supporting their families. Hence, the British Open Pub was born. The British Open Pub pays homage to golf’s greatest traditions; St. Andrews’ Caddy Scottie McKenzie, the British Open, and the camaraderie of the 19th Hole.
Our original location in the Village at Wexford on Hilton Head opened it doors in 1998 and has remained an Island tradition ever since. We are proud to serve the lowcountry for over 15 years and continuing to develop our reputation as restaurateurs on our small community. Our Hilton Head Pub has the pleasure of being the island's first true golfer's pub, with the world's only "Titliest Bar." Welcoming returning visitors from all over the world each year is a joy to us. As well as being one of the locals’ top choice of restaurants is quite rewarding to our family.
In 2012, we opened a British Open Pub in Bluffton. Our newest location is located in Sheridan Park along Hwy 278. Titleist was generous enough to contribute to our second “ Titleist Bar”. The Bluffton BOP also features a large screened in patio to enjoy full service dining with large screen televisions and a fireplace.
Every year , we host The British Open Pub Invitational, sponsored by Lexus. Proceeds from the one day event go to The BOP - Kevin Hayes Memorial College Scholarship Fund at the Community Foundation of the LowCountry. We award the scholarships to local students demonstrating exceptional academic achievements, community involvement and financial need. This allows them to make their college education a reality! Tournament proceeds also helps fund the British Open Pub Junior Golf Program at The Island Recreation Center, hosted at Old South Golf and taught by Greg McDonnell.
