Short Par 4 Named Title Sponsor of the Myrtle Beach Fall Classic

Three-Year Agreement Will Bring Popular Box Subscription Service to Golf’s Fastest Growing Tournament

Myrtle Beach, S.C. — Short Par 4, a golf inspired box subscription service that ships hand curated, top quality, branded golf apparel, footwear and accessories directly to golfers, has reached a three-year agreement with Golf Tourism Solutions to be the title sponsor of the Fall Classic, the game’s fastest growing tournament.

As part of the sponsorship, the Myrtle Beach-based event will now be named the Short Par 4 Fall Classic.

The fifth annual event will be played November 11-15 on 16 of Myrtle Beach’s best courses. A 72-hole, two-person team event, the Fall Classic initially planned to cap the field at 360 players but due to demand expanded to 432. Even with the increased field size, the tournament has been sold out for more than a month.

As part of its sponsorship, Short Par 4 will provide Fall Classic players with custom branded apparel, including a Greg Norman pullover.

“Short Par 4, which delivers great quality and value, is an ideal partner for the Fall Classic,” Tournament Director Scott Tomasello said. “The Fall Classic appeals to golfers who enjoy the best the game has to offer and it has been growing in popularity, much like Short Par 4. This is a partnership between a brand and an event that are on the rise, and it will be beneficial to both parties and our golfers.”

Teams will be flighted based on their USGA handicaps and there will be a different format of play each day. The tournament formats will be best ball, Texas scramble, modified alternate shot and a scramble, but the golf course lineup and entry fee of $375 have been the driving forces behind the event’s rapid growth.

The courses hosting the four-round event are the Dye and Fazio courses at Barefoot Resort, Farmstead Golf Links, Glen Dornoch, Heritage Club, Leopard’s Chase, Long Bay, Pawleys Plantation, Pine Lakes, Prestwick Country Club, Rivers Edge, Thistle, TPC Myrtle Beach, Tradition, True Blue and World Tour.

Tournament festivities will begin with a welcome reception at House of Blues on November 11, an event that will feature free hor d’oeuvres and two free drinks for each person. After four rounds of golf, the event will conclude with an awards dinner at the House of Blues that will includes a buffet dinner, two free drinks per person and live entertainment.

Myrtle Beach, S.C. – As golf continues to look for ways to attract more young players, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday has entered into a sponsorship agreement with Nextgengolf, an organization that targets competitive and recreational millennials to help engage them with the game.

Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, the driving force behind the Grand Strand’s emergence as America’s most popular destination, is now a national sponsor for Nextgengolf. As part of the program, Nextgengolf will annually host a minimum of four events, including one national championship, in Myrtle Beach, and the Grand Strand will have a marketing presence at 185 Nextgengolf events across the nation.

“Introducing the game’s next generation of players to the virtues of a Myrtle Beach golf trip is vital to the continuing strength of our market,” said Bill Golden, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s president. “Nextgengolf is the game’s leading grassroots effort to engage millennials with the game, and we are looking forward to a creative partnership that will promote the long-term health of the Myrtle Beach market and the game.”

Myrtle Beach will be the official Spring Break destination for Nextgengolf. The Nextgengolf team will work with the Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday staff on promotion and branding of other opportunities such as Bachelor Party, Buddies Trips and High School Golf Team Training.

Nextgengolf connects with golfers in their 20s and 30s through their two core team-based golf services the National Collegiate Golf Club Association (NCGCA, college students) and the City Tour (young adults).

Jam For Juniors Concert Benefiting First Tee of the Grand Strand

 

Josh Kelley, Javier Colon, Andrew Copeland and Ken Block of Sister Hazel to Headline Jam For Juniors Concert Benefiting First Tee of the Grand Strand

Tickets for the Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday Sponsored Event On Sale for $35

Myrtle Beach, S.C. — Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday has always made growth of the game a priority, and the organization is doubling down on that commitment with the launch of the first Jam for Juniors concert on July 24 at House of Blues.

The event, which will benefit the First Tee of the Grand Strand, will feature acoustic performances from Javier Colon, Josh Kelley and Ken Block and Drew Copeland from Sister Hazel. The concert will run from 7 – 10 p.m., and tickets are just $35 and can be purchased online or through House of Blues.

The concert will be held in conjunction with the Future Generations Golf Tournament, which will be played earlier in the day at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club.

Josh Kelley, a singer-song writer, most known for his hit songs “Amazing” and “Georgia Clay,” is one the industry’s most talented performers. Kelley, whose brother Charles is a member of the mega-group Lady Antebellum, plays nearly every instrument on his latest album, “New Lane Road.” Kelley, who starred in the Golf Channel Show “Road Trip: Myrtle Beach,” played collegiate golf at Ole Miss.

Block and Copeland are vocalists for alternative rock band Sister Hazel, a group most known for its No. 1 song “All For You.” The band, which continues to tour, has released nine albums, eight of which cracked a top 100 albums list in the United States, and had seven songs that were ranked among the top 50 on the various music charts.

Javier Colon, whose music has been described as acoustic soul, won the first season of NBC’s hit show “The Voice.” Three of Colon’s four album releases ranked among the top 50 on the U.S. R&B charts and his voice prompted Adam Levine, the lead singer for Maroon 5 and a judge on “The Voice” to say, “You are the real deal … you have one of the best voices I’ve ever heard, ever!”

Jam for Juniors is expected to become an annual event with a goal of helping spur interest in the game of golf while teaching kids life lessons and leadership skills along the way.
