15th Annual Veterans Golf Classic Poised to Tee Off

Veterans Golf Classic is ready to startMore than 425 American heroes are teeing-off in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The 15th annual Veterans Golf Classic features veterans from every American conflict since World War II competing on 12 outstanding Myrtle Beach golf courses.

Players from 35 states have registered for the two-man team event, which is open to all current or former members of the United States Military and their friends.

The 54-hole tournament features a different format of play each day – better ball, scramble and combined net team score. Players are placed into one of four flights – Eisenhower, MacArthur, Nimitz and Franks – based on their handicap. The host courses are: Burning Ridge, Farmstead, Founders Club, Hackler Course, Man O'War, Panther's Run, River Hills, River Oaks, Sandpiper Bay, Shaftesbury Glen, Wicked Stick and Wachesaw Plantation East.

Off the course, players will enjoy a Sunday welcome reception and a Wednesday night awards banquet, in addition to receiving a Veterans Golf Classic hat and shirt and an assortment of goodies in a tournament gift bag. The Wednesday banquet is one of the event’s highlights. The colors of each service branch – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard are presented – and the atmosphere is the perfect blend of festive and respectful.

The competition extends beyond the standard two-man team event. The Branch Challenge pits the five branches of the U.S. Military against each other. Participants are entered into the contest, and at the end of the tournament, the branch with the lowest score is crowned champion.

The Carolina Cup, which matches members of the VFW against the American Legion, is another popular tournament within the tournament. VFW won for the 10th time in 11 years in 2014.

Burning Ridge Golf Club Gets Better With Age

Burning Ridge Golf CourseThe 30th birthday is a milestone most don’t look forward to because it’s a reminder that time and the accoutrements of youth are passing. But at Burning Ridge Golf Club, which opened in 1980, the completion of the course’s third decade has caused no gnashing of teeth.

As a matter of fact, the Gene Hamm design is better at 30 than it was at 20.  Spurred by an extensive renovation project in 2005, Burning Ridge, a traditional course, was named the Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association and South Carolina Golf Course of the Year in 2006, and the facility has gotten better since.

Located on Highway 501, the primary artery into Myrtle Beach, Burning Ridge Golf Club promises good conditions, value and customer service, and delivers on all accounts.

Burning Ridge Golf Club features mounded fairways that are lined by scores of pine trees, yawning bunkers and elevated greens.

The course measures 6,780 yards from the black tees, but most people play from 6,216 yards on the white tees, so the layout isn’t exceedingly long.  Burning Ridge doesn’t take the driver out of the bag for most players, but accuracy off the tee is paramount to success.
