Do you have a kid that has expressed interest in playing golf? Want to bring your grandkid to the course?
The First Tee of the Grand Strand and Sandpiper Bay Golf Club are hosting a free Parent/Child Golf Outing on Saturday, August 5 that presents the perfect opportunity to bring your favorite junior golfer to the course.
The two-person team scramble is open to kids 5 to 17 years of age and an accompanying parent or grandparent. Teams will have the option of signing up for 3, 5, or 9-hole rounds and there will be junior tees available. The outing is free for both the junior player and his or her adult partner.
To register, please call 910-579-9120 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is sponsored by Srixon. Teams will check-in at 8 a.m. that Saturday morning.
Sandpiper Bay, a 27-hole facility, is an ideal host venue. The 4-star course is renowned for being player-friendly, a reputation its wide fairways and pristine greens helped it earn.
A former Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association Course of the Year, Sandpiper underwent a renovation project in 2015 that included the repaving of cart paths, the rejuvenation of every bunker on the course, and the removal of more than 250 trees.
The Parent-Child event will allow kids and their parents to enjoy a day on the course regardless of skill level. Whether a child is a competitive junior player or picking up a set of clubs for the first time, the outing will provide him or her a chance to enjoy the game, free of charge, with a family member.
The number of holes a family plays is completely up to their discretion and the scramble format will provide a stress-free day and solid pace of play.
The First Tee is dedicated to introducing kids to the game of golf and instilling its nine core values: Honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgement.
Myrtle Beach is one golf’s most ardent supporters of junior golf. In addition to running the Palmetto High School Golf Championship and the Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship, more than 50 area courses allow kids play for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
