Families are going to want to pack golf clubs along with sunscreen and surfboards before heading to Myrtle Beach this summer.
Why bring golf clubs on a family vacation?
Because more than 60 Myrtle Beach area courses, including all 21 Founders Group International layouts, allow kids to play for free when accompanied by a paying adult.
“Kids Play Free” is golf’s greatest grow-the-game initiative, allowing parents to take a quick break from the good times of the beach to play their favorite Myrtle Beach courses while introducing their children to the game.
Participating courses allow kids 16-and-under to play for free.
Among the high profile courses participating in the program are King’s North at Myrtle Beach National, Grande Dunes Resort Course, Pawleys Plantation, TPC Myrtle Beach, the four courses at Barefoot Resort and Tidewater Golf Club.
There are seasonal restrictions to the program at certain facilities, but all participating courses allow kids to play for free during the summer months. For a complete list of courses that are part of the program, click here.
“Kids Play Free” is part of the Myrtle Beach golf community’s long-time commitment to junior golf. Myrtle Beach National, home of King’s North, SouthCreek and the West Course, is the longtime host of the George Holliday Memorial Junior Tournament, and TPC Myrtle Beach is home to the Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship, which has quickly emerged as one of America’s premier youth events.
The Palmetto High School Golf Championship is America’s largest scholastic team event and counts PGA Tour players Rickie Fowler and Harris English among its alumni.
Myrtle Beach is the game’s most popular destination for golfers of all ages.
