A sold-out field of more than 220 competitors from 25 states and Canada, Mexico and Brazil have come to the Grand Strand this week to take part in the March Championship, being contested over three days at six renowned Myrtle Beach-area golf courses.
Play began Sunday with first-round action at Litchfield Country Club and River Oaks. Monday’s play at The Wizard and Caledonia was greeted with warm, sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-60s, while temperatures for Tuesday’s final-round action at the Love Course at Barefoot Resort and the Avocet Course at Wild Wing are expected to approach 70.
With an individual net stroke play format in place for this 54-hole competition, players in six flights are teeing it up from the men’s, women’s, senior and super senior markers and vying for more than $10,000 in prizes for the top flight finishers and on-course contest winners. The March Championship has now boasted a capacity field of 200 or more golfers in each of its six years.
