Teeing Off with Tradition

The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, a historic site designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, sets the stage for the inaugural Myrtle Beach Classic. Since its founding in 1948, the club has been celebrated for its picturesque landscapes and challenging gameplay. As the venue for this PGA TOUR event, the club will showcase its world-class facilities to a global audience from May 9-12, 2024. With a total purse of $3.9 million and 300 FedExCup points up for grabs, the tournament is expected to draw top-tier talent to Myrtle Beach, often dubbed the “Golf Capital of the World.”

A Celebration for All

Crafted to enrich the spectator experience, this new tournament extends an invitation to families as well. Alongside a variety of ticket options from daily to weekly general admission, the Classic also offers premium experiences like Clubhouse access and Club 18 Shared Hospitality. Importantly, it encourages a family outing by allowing free entry for children aged 15 and under accompanied by a ticketed adult. This inclusive approach guarantees a weekend of enjoyment not just for golf fans but for anyone looking to soak in the vibrant atmosphere of Myrtle Beach.

The significance of the Myrtle Beach Classic transcends the fairways and greens. By earmarking proceeds for local social services, the tournament sets itself apart as a pillar of community support and philanthropy. Organizers emphasize their goal to impact the community positively, integrating the spirit of giving into every aspect of the event. This charitable focus is a core element of the PGA TOUR’s mission, making the tournament a meaningful event for participants and spectators alike.

More Than Just Golf

As the excitement for the first annual Myrtle Beach Classic builds, anticipation for this premiere event encompasses more than the competition itself. It is an opportunity to unite the community, to revel in the sport’s camaraderie, and to appreciate the scenic splendor of Myrtle Beach. With challenging courses at The Dunes and a welcoming, inclusive environment, the Classic is on course to become a beloved yearly tradition.
