To reach GSSM from I-20, take exit 116 onto US 15 north through Bishopville to Hartsville. (Note: Don't miss the left turn at a light where US 15 intersects SC 403.) Follow Business 15 (then also South Fifth St.) as Bypass 15 diverges to the right, then turn right onto Carolina Avenue at fourth stoplight on Business 15 (Wells Fargo Bank in the intersection.) Turn right onto Fourth Street, then left onto Railroad Ave. At the next stop sign our campus will be ahead to your right. You may park either in front of the building or behind it. In any case, come to the central lobby to register your presence on campus and then follow the signs to the tournament.

From I-95 south of Hartsville, take exit 150 onto SC 403 north toward and through Timmonsville until you reach US 15 between Hartsville and Bishopville. Proceed north on US 15, following previous set of directions.
