July is a quiet time for golf in the Myrtle Beach area. This summer, the Myrtle Beach Golf Passport wanted to bring people together, and what better way to do that than creating a summer league? Players get two free drink tickets and have the chance to win pro shop credits. Our Summer Passport League play tees off every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m.
Our Summer Passport League started June 11th and has been going strong ever since. On its opening night the league took on the Dan Maples-designed Willbrook Plantation, and later that week brough another Maples design into the competitive mix when the league headed north to Oyster Bay Golf Links. Golfers have also had the chance to play great courses such as Prestwick Country Club, Wachesaw Plantation East, and the Mike Strantz-designed True Blue Golf Club.
The cost for all of these events ranges from $30 to $35. Our Summer Passport League runs through Aug. 8 and you can sign up online. Some of the courses that the summer league will be taking on in the next few weeks include Man O’War Golf Club, Tradition Club, and the Dye Club at Barefoot Resort. As with previous participating courses, the cost to compete at these venues will be $30 or $35 and that includes your two free drink tickets.
The atmosphere that we have had at our Summer Passport League has been exceptional, and perhaps its greatest appeal is in how the league is embraced by a wide range of golfers – including high and low handicaps, and serious and just-for-fun golfers. Pairings are chosen randomly, and the tee boxes are based on age. Following play, golfers gather in the clubhouse grill for post-round socializing and awards presentations.
