- How Much Does the Myrtle Beach Preseason Classic Cost?
The 2018 tournament costs $199 USD per person. That entry fee includes a tournament welcome gift, 3 rounds of tournament golf, welcome registration function with some complimentary drinks and food and an awards lunch following the third round.
- How Do I Enter?
You can (1) enter both team members at once, (2) enter just yourself and have your team member sign up separately or (3) sign up as a single and we will pair you with someone else.
- What is the Tournament Format?
The Preseason Classic is a two-person team event. The daily formats are:
- Round 1 – Best Ball
- Round 2 – Modified Alternate Shot
- Round 3 – Texas Scramble
The tournament will be scored with net results using a percentage of each player’s handicap.
- Can I enter as a Single Player?
Yes, you may enter as a single and we will pair you with another single to create your two-person team!
- Is there a Host Hotel?
Please visit the Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday site to view all of our Member properties. There is a small list of host hotels listed here.
- What Golf Courses are Hosting Rounds?
Each flight will play a different Myrtle Beach golf course each of the three days. Check out the GREAT courses hosting rounds for the Preseason Classic!
Course assignments will be released after entry is closed and all handicaps have been collected to complete the flighting process.
- When are the starting times for golf?
All courses will have a 9:00 AM shotgun start each day. Please plan to arrive at the course at least 30 minutes prior to your start time.
- What tees will we play?
Men will play from the standard white tees, Seniors 60+ will have the option to play from senior tees, and Ladies will play from the Red tees.
- Can we request to be on the same course as another team?
You may request to play in the same flight as another team, but all players will have to play down to the lowest team handicap of the players involved. For example: If TEAM 1 has a 32.4 handicap and wanted to play with TEAM 2 that has a 19.2 handicap, then TEAM 1 would be flighted with each player being equally adjusted to reach a team handicap of 19.2. Once flighting is complete, TEAM 1 will have their handicaps restored to the highest threshold of that flight (not to exceed their original handicaps) in order to give them as much of their original handicap as possible (If the threshold was 24.2, then each TEAM 1 member would receive half of the 5.0 index points and play at a team handicap of 24.2 for the event). Requesting to be in the same flight as a friend DOES NOT mean you will be placed in the same grouping.
The tournament committee requires all Play Together requests to be made on the handicap submission form that is sent to you on January 15th. We will not accept it in any other format. No changes will be made to a player’s flight once the course assignments are announced.
