Play golf with future stars of PGA Tour
This March, local golfers will have the chance to pair up with some of the NCAA’s top men’s golfers and compete to win the General Hackler Collegiate-Am tournament.
On Friday, March 11, the Dunes Golf and Beach Club will host the charity golf tournament as part of the 15th Annual Coastal Carolina Hackler Championship presented by Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday – one of the nation’s premier collegiate golf tournaments. The Collegiate-Am is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. with a shotgun start.
Each team will consist of four players and a collegiate player from a participating university. In addition to course play, all teams will also receive a sponsorship hole sign with the logo and/or message from the participating team, recognition in the Hackler Championship program and tee gifts and prizes. Following the Collegiate-Am teams and players will enjoy a dinner and awards banquet in the Dunes Club ballroom.
Limited spots still remain for interested teams. To register a team of four, the cost is either $1,350 or $1,250 (does not include hole signage). All proceeds from the Collegiate-Am will go to benefit the Coastal Carolina golf program.
“The General Hackler Collegiate-Am will be a great opportunity for local golfers to play with some of the nation’s top collegiate golfers,” said Dennis Nicholl, head golf professional at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club. “In the near future, you could very well see these players in some of the biggest tournaments in golf, so this is a great opportunity to play with tomorrow’s stars.”
