Each spring, pro golfers, celebrities, philanthropists and fans gather in North Myrtle Beach for Monday After the Masters. What started as a small get-together at the beach in 1994 to raise money for charity has become one of the country’s top celebrity pro-ams. With the help of American rock band Hootie & the Blowfish, Monday After the Masters has generated millions of dollars for children’s educational programs and the South Carolina Junior Golf Association.
While the events surrounding the tournament change each year, North Myrtle Beach provides convenient access to the tournament’s courses and event venues, including The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort and the House of Blues. For more information on this year’s schedule of events and other information, visit the Monday After the Masters website.
If you’re coming to North Myrtle Beach for Monday After the Masters, here are a few insider tips on how to make the most of your trip:
WHERE TO STAY:
North Myrtle Beach is home to a variety of accommodations for groups of all sizes. If you have a big group of golf buddies, a large family or a few couples joining you, consider booking one of the many beach homes in the area. Many of these homes are oceanfront, allowing you to enjoy the views of the beach before, between or after the tournament’s events.
Another perk of staying at a beach home or condo is having your own kitchen, which can be helpful during an activity-packed weekend like Monday After the Masters. Fuel up for the day by cooking a hearty breakfast or unwind after a long day of spectating with a fresh seafood dinner and a glass of local wine. If you plan on cooking, visit Boulineau's in Cherry Grove for groceries (and anything else you might need).
WHERE TO PLAY:
If watching golf gives you the urge to play a round yourself, you’re in luck, as North Myrtle Beach is home to some of South Carolina’s most beautiful and challenging courses. Designed by some of the best in the game, like Robert Trent Jones, Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman, you could make a whole trip of playing golf in North Myrtle Beach.
Looking for activities off the green? North Myrtle Beach has plenty of attractions and entertainment to suit any taste or schedule. Experience some of the area’s most iconic activities, like:
- Horseback riding on the beach
- Fishing off the historic Cherry Grove Pier
- Tasting wine at one of two local wineries
- Gambling on a casino boat
- Watching a performance featuring world-class entertainment
- Indulging in a little R & R at a nearby spa
WHERE TO DINE:
North Myrtle Beach is home to hundreds of unique restaurants, from calabash seafood and upscale sushi to steak, grab-and-go pizza and traditional Southern cooking. Many of these restaurants include a complimentary view of the ocean, a scenic inlet or picturesque waterway.
If you’re looking for fine dining with a view and a “major” golf connection, visit Greg Norman Australian Grille, located in Barefoot Landing, a 100-plus-acre shopping, dining and entertainment epicenter. Owned and frequently visited by the international golf legend, this establishment features a large dining patio with beautiful views of the waterway. (Fans of The Shark should also visit North Myrtle Beach’s Shark Wake Park, a unique cable wakeboarding experience founded by his son, Greg Norman, Jr.)
