Now in it’s 18th year, Fathers and sons unite to play in the National Father and Son Team Classic. It has become the largest father-son golf event in the WORLD! In 2014 the 54-hole event drew participants from 46 states and 7 foreign countries, reaching totals of over 900 players. The event’s motto is simple: “Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.”
Fathers and sons unite in “The Seaside Golf Capital of the World” for the 18th Annual National Father & Son Team Classic. This three-day family event has become the largest father-son golf event in the world. Last year’s 54-hole competition drew over 900 players from 46 states and 7 foreign countries – 24 flights in all. Our motto at the Father & Son event is; Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad. And that is why we allow any combination of players on a team as long as there is a generation gap between them and they do not need to be related.
This year Barefoot agreed to provide the Fazio Course to be 1 of 8 host courses in the event’s rotation.
This year we have seen a turn in the tide. In years past, the event has been limited to only Fathers and Sons. Based upon feedback from participants, the tournament committee decided it would be in its best interest to open up the event to Fathers, Mothers and Daughters dubbing the experience “Family Golf Week”- Rich Bartram, PGA

$75 a.m. – $50 p.m. rounds
Tee Times for practice rounds may be booked starting on July 1, 2015. Valid July 1-19, 2015. Rate available to participants only.

to Introduce Concurrent Tournaments to Include Daughters in a
As the largest Father/Son event in the world, the Father & Son Team Classic has always placed an emphasis on family bonds and particularly those created through memorable events and fun competition, specifically, golf. Based upon the feedback from many participants over the years, there is a strong consensus of the need to include daughters. Therefore, the tournament committee for the Father & Son Team Classic has announced two additional golf tournaments to be held concurrently with the Father & Son Team Classic; (1) the Father & Daughter Team Classic and (2) the Mother & Daughter Team Classic.
While the three-day Father & Son Team Classic will be held July 16 – 18, 2015, the Father & Daughter and Mother & Daughter Team Classics will be held July 16 and 17, 2015 as a two-day competition. Participants for all three events will basically share the same schedule of events to include tournament registration, the Family Affair featuring Demo Alley and format of play for the first two rounds. The awards ceremony, however, will be held separately and immediately following the second round for the Father/Mother & Daughter tournament and following the third round for the Father & Son tournament. As for the format of play, all participants on day one will play Better Ball (using 80% of handicap); on day two will play Captain Choice (using 30% of total team handicap); on day three only the Father & Son tournament participants will play Alternate Shot (using 40% of total team handicap).

Interested visitors will be able to sign up for the event through an online registration as well as review information related to the schedule of events, tournament format, the various sponsors, Myrtle Beach accommodations, restaurants and entertainment and more.
Brad Greenstein, tournament director for the Father & Son Team Classic presented by PGA TOUR Superstore states, “So many times we have been asked, ‘Why aren’t the daughters included? We were hesitant because of the uncertainty of having enough to fill the tournament field. Now, as the Father & Son ramps up for its eighteenth year, it’s time to open the door for the entire family to enjoy the camaraderie, the bonding experience and the lifetime of memories created. Our plan is to create an entire family golf experience in the greatest family destination in the world – Myrtle Beach, SC. What better venue than Family Golf Week.”
