GolfBoard Teaming Up With Short Par 4 Fall Classic

After a successful introduction of the GolfBoard at the 2018 PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur, golfers were scrambling for the opportunity to ’Surf the Earth.’  Now, they’ll be teaming up with the Short Par 4 Fall Classic to offer randomly selected participants the chance to ride.

The first patented all-wheel drive personal transport vehicle for golf, GolfBoards took the game by storm when they were named Best New Product for Golf at the 2014 PGA Show. And since a GolfBoard has 25% of the footprint of a golf cart, it allows golfers to take a direct path to their ball around greens which helps to speed up play.

As part of the partnership, GolfBoards will be at a different host course each day, providing a total of 16 lucky participants the opportunity to add an extra form of excitement during their tournament round.

Don’t let the allusion to surfing scare you off. A GolfBoard is very stable and extremely easy to operate. The base of the board is wide which provides excellent stability, and learning to steer, which you are able to do with minimal effort, is easy. By the time you enjoy a little pre-round training, navigating a GolfBoard around the course quickly becomes second nature.

PLAY BETTER GOLF

After a successful Team GolfBoard pilot program at the World Am and the tournament scoring complied and compared:

  • The net score from a GolfBoard (76) was two strokes better than tournament scores posted from a golf cart (78) on the same course on the same day.
  • 25% of the total tournament rounds played on a GolfBoard were sub-par.
  • 31% of contestants posted their best tournament score while riding a GolfBoard.

Chuck Brown, the GolfBoard South Carolina Rep, believes “GolfBoards are the perfect transport for tournament play by giving the player the independence to ride directly to his own ball, at his own pace, with his own thoughts, focus, and attitude. And for some players, the opportunity to remain standing between shots and not constantly having to get in and out of a golf cart, can reduce muscle stiffness and aches and pains to the back and knees.”

The golf industry hasn’t offered many “fun” innovations recently, but the GolfBoard will increase your enjoyment of the game; and for those of you wondering, yes, a GolfBoard comes complete with a drink holder.

The Myrtle Beach Fall Classic is sold out.

The Myrtle Beach Fall Classic is sold out.

The first Myrtle Beach Fall Classic is still nearly two months away, but the event is already sold out.

We framed the 72-hole tournament around playing some the best golf courses not only in Myrtle Beach but all of America, and the interest has been overwhelming. We are going to use eight courses – 2 per day – which means there is room for 100 teams and a total of 200 players.

Our golf course lineup – Caledonia, True Blue, Prestwick, Grande Dunes, Barefoot Fazio and Norman, Grande Dunes and TPC Myrtle Beach –  was obviously a big draw, as was the cost of playing in the event: $325.

While the event is sold out, we do have a waiting list, so if you are still interested in playing, put your name on the list here http://myrtlebeachfallclassic.com/register-now.

It is expected that the 2015 Myrtle Beach Fall Classic will feature an expanded field and even more great Myrtle Beach golf courses!

Links Magazine Ranks Pawleys Island Among Golf’s Best Islands

Caledonia_18

Caledonia, a host of the Myrtle Beach Fall Classic, is one of America’s Top 100 public courses.

Links Magazine has ranked Pawleys Island as the world’s 10th best golf island, and two of the Myrtle Beach Fall Classic’s host courses, Caledonia and True Blue, were cited as primary reasons.

The magazine said of Pawleys Island, “How can you not go with an island alongside Myrtle Beach, especially when two of the 10 courses are Caledonia and True Blue.”

The acknowledgement added to what has been a banner year for the two Mike Strantz designs. Golf Magazine ranked both layouts among its Top 100 You Can Play, a biennial ranking of America’s best public courses.

Caledonia was No. 27 on the prestigious Golf Magazine list and True Blue was 77th. Both should make wonderful hosts for our first Fall Classic.
