Guide for Visitors at the Myrtle Beach Classic

  By  Shelbi Ankiewicz
Dunes Beach and Golf aerial location of 2024 Myrtle Beach Classic

Marking its debut from May 9-12, The Myrtle Beach Classic is the Grand Strand’s newest PGA Tour event. Sponsored by Visit Myrtle Beach, this is the first time a major professional golf tournament has been in the area in the past 24 years. Myrtle Beach, which has been known as the ‘Golf Capital of the World’ is further backing that claim with this new tournament.

The Classic will be held at the infamous Dunes Golf and Beach Club. Lining the Atlantic Ocean, this course is known for its beautiful views. Many golf events have been previously held at this course including PGA TOUR Champions, USGA, Collegiate, and men’s and women’s State amateur competitions. Proceeds from the event will be allocated to nonprofit organizations in the STEM field (science, technology, engineering, and math), diversity and inclusion, reskilling programs, and local nonprofits in the Greater Myrtle Beach area. Tickets can be found on the event's website and vary in price depending on the days attended.

If you will be coming to The Beach for a few days to watch the professionals, we have collected some of the best hotels, restaurants, and nearby attractions to keep you and your family busy during your trip.
