MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The inaugural Short Par 4 Girls Palmetto Tournament of Champions will tee off this fall, bringing the best high school golf teams in the Carolinas to Myrtle Beach. The 36-hole tournament will be held September 16-17 at True Blue Golf Club, one of the nation’s top 100 resort courses.
A total of 12 teams from North and South Carolina, including 10 state championship squads, will be invited to participate as will the top 12 individual players whose teams didn’t win state titles. Entry into the event is free.
Short Par will provide players with a gift bag, a perk that coincides with the launch of the company’s new Junior Membership Box.
