Three-Year Agreement Will Bring Popular Box Subscription Service to Golf’s Fastest Growing Tournament
(Myrtle Beach, S.C.) - Short Par 4, a golf inspired box subscription service that ships hand curated, top quality, branded golf apparel, footwear and accessories directly to golfers, has reached a three-year agreement with Golf Tourism Solutions to be the title sponsor of the Fall Classic, the game’s fastest growing tournament.
The fifth annual event will be played November 11-15 on 16 of Myrtle Beach’s best courses. A 72-hole, two-person team event, the Fall Classic initially planned to cap the field at 360 players but due to demand expanded to 432. Even with the increased field size, the tournament has been sold out for more than a month.
As part of its sponsorship, Short Par 4 will provide Fall Classic players with custom branded apparel, including a Greg Norman pullover.
“Short Par 4, which delivers great quality and value, is an ideal partner for the Fall Classic,” Tournament Director Scott Tomasello said. “The Fall Classic appeals to golfers who enjoy the best the game has to offer and it has been growing in popularity, much like Short Par 4. This is a partnership between a brand and an event that are on the rise, and it will be beneficial to both parties and our golfers.”
Teams will be flighted based on their USGA handicaps and there will be a different format of play each day. The tournament formats will be best ball, Texas scramble, modified alternate shot and a scramble, but the golf course lineup and entry fee of $375 have been the driving forces behind the event’s rapid growth.
The courses hosting the four-round event are the Dye and Fazio courses at Barefoot Resort, Farmstead Golf Links, Glen Dornoch, Heritage Club, Leopard’s Chase, Long Bay, Pawleys Plantation, Pine Lakes, Prestwick Country Club, Rivers Edge, Thistle, TPC Myrtle Beach, Tradition, True Blue and World Tour.
Tournament festivities will begin with a welcome reception at House of Blues on November 11, an event that will feature free hor d'oeuvres and two free drinks for each person. After four rounds of golf, the event will conclude with an awards dinner at the House of Blues that will includes a buffet dinner, two free drinks per person and live entertainment.
