MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Golf Tourism Solutions, home to the game’s premier tournament operations staff, is taking over management of the 40th annual National Retired Military Golf Classic (NRMGC), a 72-hole event that will be held May 30 – June 3 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
The NRMGC flights players based on player handicaps and is again expected to attract 600 players from more than 40 states to the Grand Strand.
GTS will be responsible for all aspects of the event, including marketing, registration and on-site operations.
“We look forward to not only running the National Retired Military Golf Classic but also celebrating its success in 2023,” said Scott Tomasello, GTS’ tournament director. “This is an event for American heroes who love the game of golf and it has long been one of the most popular events on the Myrtle Beach golf calendar.”
The event provides an opportunity for retired military personnel and their spouses to participate in a golf tournament aimed at providing camaraderie and competition. The NRMGC is an IRS approved 501(c) 3 charity that annually donates a portion of its proceeds to the Fisher House Foundation, the USO, Jr. ROTC and Folds of Honor.
“The upcoming 40th anniversary of the tournament is expected to be an amazing event and we’re excited to partner with GTS and PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com to make it the best golf tournament yet for our military retirees,” said MG (Ret.) Abe Turner, Tournament Chairman.
The NRMGC is one of 11 events the GTS tournament division will operate in 2023. Collectively the events will attract more than 6,000 players, account for more than 25,000 rounds of golf, and deliver millions of dollars in economic impact to the Myrtle Beach community.
Most notably, GTS runs the PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur Handicap Championship, the world’s largest single-site amateur golf tournament, an event that annually attracts more than 3,200 players from all 50 states and 15+ different countries.
Other events include the Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship, the Palmetto High School Golf Championships, the GolfBuddy Veterans Classic, Brittain Resorts Classic, World Am Q School, GolfTrek Challenge, Golfweek Myrtle Beach Amateur, Saintnine World Couples, and the Short Par 4 Fall Classic.
