Sold Out Field of 200 Players Will Participate in 54-Hole Event
A full field of 200 golfers will arrive in Myrtle Beach for the inaugural March Championship March 8-10. A 54-hole individual, net stroke play event, the tournament will be played on six Myrtle Beach area courses: Arrowhead Country Club, Meadowlands, Sandpiper Bay, Shaftesbury Glen, Thistle and Tiger’s Eye.
The March Championship, which has attracted players from 28 states, Italy and Canada, is modeled after the World Amateur Handicap Championship, the game’s most popular single-site amateur event. Participants will be placed into six flights based on age, gender and verified USGA Handicap index and will play a different course each day.
Tournament festivities begin with a Saturday night welcome party and conclude with an awards dinner on Tuesday evening.
In addition to the opportunity to win some of the more than $10,000 in flight prizes and on-course contest awards that will be handed out, each participant will receive a welcome gift, too.
The March Championship is the third in a series of new events Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday has launched over the last five months. The Myrtle Beach Fall Classic, played in November, and the Preseason Classic, which teed off in February, also sold out and attracted players from across the nation.
In May, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday will host the 16th annual Veterans Golf Classic. The 32nd annual World Am will be played August 31 – September 4.
