More than 800 golfers from around the country have arrived in Myrtle Beach for Family Golf Week, which kicks off Thursday with Round 1 action at each of eight Grand Strand golf courses. Arriving participants checked in Tuesday and Wednesday at Barefoot Resort & Golf, and immediately got in the spirit of the festivities.
Family Golf Week activities began with check-in days at the Barefoot Resort Clubhouse, including a putting challenge and the distribution of gift bags with merchandise valued at more than $500 for each participant. First-round play begins Thursday, followed by “Family Golf Night” activities at the Barefoot Resort Practice Facility from 4 – 8 p.m. Thursday that feature a skills challenge, demonstrations, food and beverage provided by Logan’s Roadhouse, and the Family Golf Week “Father of the Year” award presentation to former PGA TOUR pro Hugh Royer III.
Family Golf Week, which includes the Father & Son Team Classic and Parent & Child Team Classic, features three rounds of play at eight Myrtle Beach-area courses: The Pearl, the Love Course at Barefoot Resort, Shaftesbury Glen, Wachesaw Plantation East, Arcadian Shores, Glen Dornoch, Pine Lakes and Crow Creek.
