In celebration of National Women’s Golf Day on June 4, honoring girls and women playing golf and learning the skills that last a lifetime, several Myrtle Beach-area courses have organized activities and special promotions to commemorate the occasion.
“National Women’s Golf Day is a cause we are excited to support,” said Steve Mays, president of Founders Group International (FGI), which has four courses participating. “Women and girls are a vital part of the golf industry’s past, present and, just as importantly, future. In hosting events at Wild Wing, Myrtlewood, Aberdeen and Tradition, we hope to show our appreciation for the women who currently play and potentially bring new players into the game.”
Wild Wing Plantation will be hosting a 15-minute introduction to the game clinic at 10 a.m. on June 4, followed by a nine-hole event on the Hummingbird Course. At the conclusion of play, golfers will enjoy a post-round meet and greet and the cost of participation is $15. Players can register for a spot in the event by calling 843-347-9464.
Aberdeen Country Club, a 27-hole facility, will be hosting a “Nine & Wine” event that includes a 45-minute clinic at 11 a.m., followed by golf and a wine, cheese and fruit social at the conclusion of play. The event is $40 and players must register by Friday, May 31 by calling 843-399-2660.
Former touring pro Yoshio Yamamoto will host a 30-minute clinic at 11:30 a.m. at Myrtlewood, leading up to a nine-hole outing with tee times beginning at 12:20 p.m. At the conclusion of play, there will be a pro shop sale and hors d’oeuvre served. Cost of participation is $40 and players are asked to sign up as soon as possible by calling 843-913-4516.
Tradition Club will be home to a special 18-hole captain’s choice event for female members of FGI’s Honor Program, an enhanced membership package offered by the company. The event at Tradition Club tees off at 9 a.m. and will include a welcome gift and post-round lunch.

This reduced fee will include cart, tax, GPS service, range balls and a $10 gift card in that fee. Contact the True Blue golf shop at 843-235-0900 to learn more.
Also, Meadowlands Golf Club will honor Women’s Golf Day with a “Nine & Wine” event on Tuesday, June 4, with a 4 p.m. start time. A $17 per golfer entry fee covers nine holes of golf, with wine and snacks available after the round – and your first glass of wine or draft beer on the house!
