By: [Your Name]
Sitting on the tranquil coast of South Carolina, Myrtle Beach’s claim to fame extends beyond its sun-kissed shores and the iridescent Atlantic Ocean. As a local and avid golfer, I know the magic of Myrtle Beach runs far deeper; it veers into the lush greens of our world-renowned golf courses and resonates in the symphony of harmonious tunes celebrated in the music events organized on these greens. Yes, you read that right. Myrtle Beach, this one-of-a-kind golf capital, elicits a sweet marriage of the game of precision and the art of melodies, offering unforgettable experiences that leave indelible impressions.
For years, these golf courses have provided scenic backdrops to some of the most significant music events, inviting a charming camaraderie of golf enthusiasts, music lovers, and anyone looking to bask in the essence of South Carolina hospitality. Let’s take a journey across the fairways of the Grand Strand through this melodious narrative.
The Intracoastal Music Festival at River Oaks Golf Plantation is an annual event that has gained significant momentum over the years. As the name suggests, the festival is held on the scenic golf course bordering the Intracoastal Waterway. With an array of music genres ranging from country, bluegrass, classic rock, and folk—there’s something for every music lover. And while the music fills the air, golfers can get in a quick round or participate in the accompanying golf tournament as others enjoy sets from local and national music acts.
The highly anticipated Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship, a significant golf event, surprises its attendees with ’19th Hole’ – a golf jargon turned music and entertainment extravaganza. As golf enthusiasts wind down after a day of competing, they find solace in samplings of world cuisine, loads of souvenir shopping, and, of course, a stream of eclectic music performances.
The North Myrtle Beach’s Music on the Greens concert series, hosted at the McLean Park, is a monthly feature during the summer months which never fails in drawing an enthusiastic crowd. While it’s not strictly on a golf course, it surely appeals to our golf-loving community. Local bands from around the region offer a lively mix of music, ranging from beach music and jazz, to pop and classic rock, offering a beautiful, laid-back accompaniment to late-afternoon rounds of golf.
Golf and music come together at the Myrtle Beach National’s MBNKOTB event. Short for Myrtle Beach’s New Kids on the Tee Box, this series combines music and golf in a tournament format with a twist – celebrating the marriage of a great golf tournament and live music, attracting some of the most popular local acts.
Perhaps the most iconic of them all, the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournament, combines the allure of golf, music, and celebrity spectacle annually. Founded by members of the famed band, Hootie & the Blowfish, who met at the University of South Carolina, the event merges music with a laudable cause— raising funds for children’s educational programs and the South Carolina junior golf program.
Myrtle Beach’s reputation as a golf haven is widely known, but the true charm of this place lies in its ability to intertwine this sport with arts, heritage, and culture. The constellation of music events showcases the diversity of the community, bringing a beautiful tapestry of sounds to the greens, and revamping the traditional golf ambience with an infusion of music and friendship.
So, whether you’re looking to tee off at sunrise or catch a stunning South Carolina sunset over the 18th hole, remember that in Myrtle Beach, the soft rustling of the palmetto trees will not be the only melody accompanying your game. Be ready to swing your clubs to the rhythm of music, and embrace the enigmatic resonance of the harmony we create between sports, music, and natural beauty.
Perhaps, this is the secret ingredient of our love for Myrtle Beach—where golf is played and celebrated—offering a sanctuary where the familiar ‘thwack’ of a golf swing meets the symphony of melodies, creating the unique ‘Sound of Golf.’
