Registration is open for the 14th Annual Junior Golf Shootout on two Arnold Palmer-designed Myrtle Beach National courses. The tournament is Easter weekend, April 14 and 15 on the West and SouthCreek courses. Rising stars in golf, ages 10 to 18, from around the nation will compete in this stellar junior event.
The two-day, 36-hole shootout is sanctioned by the South Carolina Junior Golf Association. Top finishers will earn points for the Junior Golf Scoreboard. Registration can be completed online or by calling 843-448-2300. The $135 entry fee includes two rounds of golf, lunch both days, and a tee gift. Caddies are allowed, so bring a relative on the course. Format is stroke play.
A favorite on the Grand Strand, SouthCreek and West courses are known for being challenging but playable courses. SouthCreek features numerous waste areas, guarding fairways that dogleg toward undulating greens, putting a premium on accuracy. Several memorable holes offer golfers the opportunity to make birdies as the course winds through wetlands and hardwood forests. The West Course features numerous doglegs that stretch out over beautifully rolling terrain, guarded by majestic Carolina pines. The course is known for its wide fairways and large greens, as well as its unique and lengthy par 3 finishing hole that has water running down the entire left-hand side.
“Junior golf is a priority for us here at Myrtle Beach National and throughout Founders Group,” said Brad Crumling, head golf professional at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club. “We'll host about four or five junior tournaments just this year and the shootout is one of the most popular. It's an exciting tournament that fills up fast because of great weather, great courses, and great competition.”
This event also makes a great family spring-break vacation.
