During spring, Myrtle Beach hosts some of the most popular annual golf tournaments. You can plan your vacation around one of these great events and/or take advantage of the golf specials offered from the beach’s best hotels and resorts.
Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am
Kick off your spring golf vacation at the 19th Annual Hootie & The Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am on April 15 at The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort in North Myrtle Beach.
Each year golf fans eagerly await this event, which has brought together some of the biggest names in golf, sports and entertainment, including rock legend Alice Cooper, NFL hall of Famer Dan Marino and actor Samuel L. Jackson, as well as PGA Tour players Jim Furyk, Tommy Gainey and Nick Faldo. It’s for a great cause too. Over the past 16 years, the tournament has donated more than $4.5 million to the Hootie & The Blowfish Foundation, which supports the educational needs of South Carolina and the South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation.
While tickets to play aren’t available, spectator tickets will be available beginning in February. They have sold out the past seven years in a row, so if you want to be a part of the fun and entertainment, be sure to purchase yours early.
