Final-round play of the 26th Annual Family Golf Week saw warm, breezy and fantastic playing conditions, and our cameras caught the action of Saturday’s third round at The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf as well as the post-tournament awards presentations at Barefoot.
Participants competed as two-person teams in both the Father & Son Team Classic and Parent & Child Team Classic. As the world’s largest father/son golf event, the Father & Son Team Classic has always placed an emphasis on family bonds, particularly those created through memorable events and fun competition. After 17 years of strictly fathers and sons, the tournament committee expanded to the Family Golf Week setup.
Starting in 2018, the Family Golf Week team combined the Mother & Daughter Team Classic and the Father & Daughter Team Classic into one event that encompasses all familial relationships: the Parent & Child Team Classic. These are now two separate tournaments that allow the entire family to take part in this longstanding family tradition.
Arcadian Shores, the Love and Dye courses at Barefoot Resort & Golf, Crow Creek, the Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood Golf Club, Prestwick, Shaftesbury Glen and Wachesaw Plantation East hosted rounds each day of a 54-hole event that began Thursday and concluded Saturday. Two-person Better Ball (Thursday), Captain’s Choice (Friday) and Modified Alternate Shot (Saturday) formats were in place for each day of play.
Each entrant received a gift bag containing a logoed commemorative golf shirt, t-shirt, hat, bag tag, poker chip and koozie, along with one dozen Srixon golf balls, FootJoy golf glove, one pair of 2UNDR undergarments, one pair of FootJoy socks, and a $150 Family Golf Week gift card redeemable for food/beverage, practice round fees and a wide range of merchandise.
Event sponsors include title sponsor FootJoy and presenting sponsors East Coast Golf Management, Wilson Staff, Myrtle Beach Golf Trail, Logan’s Roadhouse, BODYARMOR, Cape Fear Distillery, Srixon, Coca-Cola, John Deere, Grand Strand Brewing Company, The Salty Golfer and Ahead USA.
