Now is the time to get your entries in for the 2018 Father-Son Team Classic! Entries began on November 13, 2017. The tournament will feature a new division in 2018, designed to include the entire family in one of the Myrtle Beach golf’s most popular events.
The Father-Son Team Classic is the largest tournament of its kind in the world, with over 600+ players from 40 states and three countries flocking each year to Myrtle Beach for an event that celebrates the family bond that golf helps breed.
In 2018, the event will feature the addition of the Parent-Child Team Classic. This new format will allow combinations of mothers, fathers, sons, daughters and grandparents to compete as two-person teams. The Parent-Child tournament is a separate tournament from the Father-Son, but will follow the same model.
