The tournament is making its PGA Tour debut.

Myrtle Beach is bringing all the professional golfers to the golf capital of the world by hosting the first PGA Tour event, Myrtle Beach Classic 2024. It is a brand new PGA Tour event which will be held from May 9 to 12 at the Dunes Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, South California. It is the third of the five opposite-field events in the PGA Tour 2024 with the PGA Tour’s big-ticket names. 

The tournament contains a purse of $4 million in which winners will get $720,000 along with 3000 FedEx points. Dunes Golf and Beach Club have together made a four-year agreement which they announced through the conference for the event. From now onwards it will be part of the PGA Tour FedEx Cup regular season. In total 132 golfers will take part in the tournament along with 38 PGA Tour winners. 

Myrtle Beach Classic 2024

The course of the Myrtle Beach has seen many major golf tournaments in history. The dual golf and beach Club has been designed by one of the great golf course designers, Robert Trent Jones Sr., who is also the founding member of the American Society of the Golf Course Artist. However, it has been renovated by his son, Rees Jones throughout the last 20 years span. It was inaugurated in 1948 and since then holds the position in the list of top 100 golf courses in the USA. 

Jones Sr. has given the elevation of 26 feet to the ground making it an aerial design. The arrangement of the trees has been strategically done throughout the course and giving several greenside bunkers, making the golfers force to hit the arial approach creating impeccable visions for the audience. 

The course signature hole is the 13th hole which is a par five hole. The hole has a very tight fairway which narrows down to a mere 18 yards, 330 yards of the tee box.
