The whole family can get in on the tournament action in Myrtle Beach over the summer months. For over 18 years, local golf courses have joined together to bring you Summer Family Golf Tournaments. This tournament features a series of single-day events in three divisions: open, couples, and adult/youth using the Callaway System without handicaps. This is a great way for the whole family to have a wonderful golfing experience together in Myrtle Beach.
In May each year, military veterans from the five branches of Armed Forces and their families compete head to head on the golf course in the Veterans Golf Classic. This four day tournament is known for its camaraderie as well as its use of many fine golf courses such as the Black Bear Golf Club, the Crown Park Golf Club, the Founder's Club, and others. Both teams and singles are welcome.
In June, you can join in over 27 years of Myrtle Beach golfing history and take part in the National Retired Military Golf Classic. This is a five day event that is played on three of Myrtle Beach's top courses, the Myrtle Beach National, Long Bay, and Aberdeen. This is the world's largest retired military event, but space is limited to just over 1,000 participants including both men and women. Early registration is highly recommended.
