New Sponsor And Hosts Named for National Father & Son Team Classic
Every summer, father and sons of all ages flock to the Grand Strand to take part in one of the most challenging tournaments in the area. A three-day family event, the National Father & Son Team Classic is the largest father and son event in the world. In last year’s tournament, more than 1200 players from 44 states and 8 foreign countries came to enjoy the annual event. This year, the tournament is set to be hosted at some of the Strand’s most legendary courses: Wachesaw Plantation East, The Founders Club at Pawleys Island, Sea Trail Golf Resort, Legends Resort, and many more. It is the first time that Sea Trail Resort and the Members Club at Grande Dunes will take part in hosting the event.
Golf Dimensions recently signed on to be the event’s title sponsor for the next three years. The tournament has a large economic impact on the Myrtle Beach area, bringing in more than $30 million dollars and supports the First Tee of Myrtle Beach. First Tee of Myrtle Beach is a local non-profit organization that provides health care access to the uninsured in Horry County.
This year’s event will take place on July 21-23. A 54-hole event, a different format is offered each day. The tournament is open to any type of father/son relationship including grandfathers and grandsons, stepfathers and stepsons, fathers and sons-in-law, and uncles and nephews.
