Frogmore, SC, is named after Queen Victoria’s home in England, Frogmore Manor. Nearby Penn Community Center was established after the Civil War to educate freed slaves and is where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote his famous, “I Have A Dream,” speech in the early 1960’s. Beaufort, SC, Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot, and Fripp Island are just a few miles away. A local airport, affectionately known as the Frogmore International Airport, was the inspiration for the Frogmore International Golf Club. Fred Bazemore, my best friend, owns Freddie’s Pawn Shop in Beaufort and is nicknamed “Fast Freddie” because of his expert salesmanship! Dataw Island, just two miles from Frogmore, is the home of one of the most beautiful golf courses in the United States and is where the Putter Frog was born.  How it all got started.
