Golf’s Future Stars to Play in 49th George Holliday Memorial Junior Tournament

Hundreds of Junior golfers will show off their skills in Myrtle Beach this November at the George Holliday Memorial Junior Tournament. Celebrating its 49th year, the tournament offers juniors an opportunity to challenge their abilities at one of the nation’s premier junior golf competitions.

Coming up on Thanksgiving weekend, November 23-25, 2017, the George Holliday Tournament contestants will have the opportunity to play some of Myrtle Beach’s most beautiful courses, including Kings North, SouthCreek, and the West Course at Myrtle Beach National. Registration is open until November 21. But with past participants like Lucas Glover, D.J Trahan, and Kristy McPherson, hundreds of golfers come out in hopes of following in the footsteps of the greats.

Register early because these divisions fill up fast. In fact, last year, the 16 to 18 year-old division sold out. All golfers must be ages 18 years or younger as of November 23.

“We are honored to welcome back participants to this event,” said Brad Crumling, head golf professional at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club. “We recognize the impact this competition can have on the future success of these juniors. As George believed in the importance of golf in instilling values in lives of young golfers, we too believe the impact of this tournament reach beyond just the golf course.”

The George Holliday Junior Golf Tournament is the third oldest junior golf tournament in South Carolina. It's held in remembrance of a George Judson Holliday III, a successful junior and collegiate golfer who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 1967. At the age of 22, the young golfer already recognized the impact his golfing experience as a junior had on molding his future successes. George was a Gallivant Ferry, South Carolina native and his family established the event to allow other juniors an opportunity compete in a high-caliber tournament setting.

The competition division consists of boys ages 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, and 16-18 years of age. There are three age brackets in the girls’ division: 10-12, 13-14 and 15-18 years of age.

Thousands of golfers from across the country flock to Myrtle Beach each year to participate in the event. Last year, the event welcomed golfers from Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Mexico.

Last year's Boys Overall Champion was Connor Burgess from Lynchburg, Virginia. The Girls Overall Champion was Gracyn Burgess from Lexington, South Carolina.

The public is invited to attend the tournament at no charge.  More information about the event Click Here or call Myrtle Beach National at 843-448-2308.
