Hootie & the Blowfish Tell Us Why Myrtle Beach is Their #1 Choice for Golf

“If you’re taking your buddies, and you’re looking for someplace to go play golf, I can’t think of any place better than Myrtle Beach.”

– Darius Rucker

Along with fellow Hootie & the Blowfish bandmates Mark Bryan, Dean Felber and Jim “Soni” Sonefeld, Darius invites you to come see for yourself what they’ve all come to know for decades.

They’re South Carolina born & bred … they’re crazy about golf … and the boys in the band want you to experience why Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the undisputed “Golf Capital of the World.”

After a quarter century of Hootie & the Blowfish hosting this wildly popular event,  Monday After the Masters has become about so much more than the star power it annually attracts.
