Myrtle Beach Preseason Classic Ready to Tee Off

28 Jan, 2021

The seventh annual Myrtle Beach Preseason Classic - sporting a sold-out field of 300 golfers - will be played February 1-3 on nine of the Grand Strand’s most popular courses.

This year’s field, which grew by 50 percent, is the largest in tournament history and will feature golfers from 22 states.

A 54-hole, two-man team event, the Preseason Classic will showcase a different format of play each day and players will be flighted based on their USGA handicap. Teams will play best ball in the opening round, followed by modified alternate shot and a Texas scramble.

The Preseason Classic, which cost just $199 per person, has carved out a reputation as golf’s most valued-filled event.  Much of the value is derived from a course lineup that features some of the area’s most acclaimed layouts.

The Love Course at Barefoot Resort, True Blue and Rivers Edge have all been ranked among the nation’s top 100 public courses and will lead a lineup that also includes Aberdeen, Arrowhead, River Club, Sandpiper Bay, Tradition Club and Wild Wing Avocet.

“Golf has offered a refuge from the Covid-19 pandemic, and I think that is reflected in the interest in this year’s Myrtle Beach Preseason Classic,” said Scott Tomasello, the tournament director for Golf Tourism Solutions, the event’s owner and operator. “We were able to safely and successfully host the World Amateur Handicap Championship and the Fall Classic over the final four months of 2020, and we look forward to welcoming players for the best Myrtle Beach Preseason Classic to date.”

In addition to three rounds of golf, players will also receive a tournament gift, daily prizes, random drawings, two drink tickets each day, and a final round awards luncheon.
