The American Couples Series National Championship Returns to Lake Hartwell in 2018


ATHENS, Ala. – The 2018 American Couples Series National Championship, presented by American Bass Anglers, will be hosted by the Anderson Convention & Visitors Bureau and will take place Sept. 16-21, 2018 at Green Pond Landing and Event Center on Lake Hartwell in Anderson, SC. The onsite registration and dinner will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018.

“We are so excited about the opportunity to have the ABA Couples Championship back in Anderson County, Green Pond Landing and Lake Hartwell after hosting them in October 2016. In hosting the Couples Championship, we found that the participants traveled to Anderson and made a significant economic impact to our community in addition to being able to enjoy our great facilities and our championship lake. With that, we wasted little time in wanting to bring them back to our community. Our community continues to be very supportive of fishing and with the commitment that Anderson County has made to improving Green Pond Landing, we expect to raise the bar on the service that our guests experience each time they visit Anderson County,” said Neil Paul, Executive Director of Visit Anderson.

This event will be open to couples that have competed in four, one day events. These couples will be competing for the first-place prize of $4000, and bragging rights for the year. 

“Returning to Lake Hartwell is always a pleasure and our Couples love the fishing and the community support.  Anderson County is the most angler friendly of any host community we have been associated with, their support for the fishermen is second to none.” said Morris Sheehan, President of American Bass Anglers. 

Since opening in December 2014, Green Pond Landing has hosted the ABA Ray Scott Championship and the ABA American Fishing Tour National Championship. The Anderson community provides a multitude of excellent lodging and dining options close to Green Pond Landing for the competitors, as well as many activities for the families and participating anglers. 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 Lake Hartwell sits on the South Carolina-Georgia line, anglers can fish the lake with a license from either state. For Anderson County area information, call the Anderson County Convention & Visitors Bureau at (864) 716-3660 or visit www.andersoncountysc.org .
