Ray Scott Championship to Return to Green Pond in 2020

Another major national fishing tournament is heading to Green Pond in 2020.

The American Bass Anglers announced today that the Ray Scott Championship will be hosted by Visit Anderson at Green Pond Landing on Harwell Lake April 6-12, 2020.The competitors will fish Lake Hartwell, the 56,000-acre reservoir along the Savannah and Tugaloo Rivers, which spans part of the South Carolina-Georgia border.

Since opening in December 2014, Green Pond Landing has hosted the ABA Championships as well as numerous major events including the Bassmaster Classic and FLW Tour. The economic impact of these events for the Anderson community has already passed the $52 million mark.

“We are very excited to have American Bass Anglers and the Ray Scott Championship coming back to Anderson County, Green Pond Landing and Lake Hartwell for another championship fishing tournament," said Neil Paul, Executive Director of Visit Anderson. "We have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the great folks at ABA over the years and the ABA family has contributed significantly to the economic impact of fishing tournaments in Anderson County. Ray Scott is the Godfather of competitive bass fishing and to be able to host a championship tournament that bears his name is an honor and privilege for our community and we look forward to this tremendous opportunity,” 

“The Anderson SC area and Lake Hartwell provides the exact mix of fishing and Southern heritage for this event," said Morris Sheehan, ABA President. "Neal Paul at Visit Anderson and the local community rolls out the red carpet and always go above and beyond to welcome the ABA anglers.  We are excited to return to to Anderson for the 2020 Ray Scott Championship.”
