The fifth annual Short Par 4 Fall Classic is poised to tee off with a record number of participants in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
The Fall Classic has more than doubled in size since its inception and will have 432 players from 38 states playing in the 72-hole, two-person team Nov. 11-15.
“The Short Par 4 Fall Classic has quickly emerged as one of golf’s most popular events,” said Scott Tomasello, the tournament director for Golf Tourism Solutions, the company that operates the event. “We are fortunate to have a great golf course lineup and players love the two-person team format, which strikes a perfect balance by creating a competitive tournament and a relaxing atmosphere.”
Highlighting the golf course lineup, which includes five layouts that have been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses, are the Dye and Fazio courses at Barefoot Resort, Farmstead Golf Links, Glen Dornoch, Heritage Club, Leopard’s Chase, Long Bay, Pawleys Plantation, Pine Lakes, Prestwick Country Club, Rivers Edge, Thistle, TPC Myrtle Beach, Tradition, True Blue and World Tour.
Teams are flighted based on their USGA handicaps and there will be a different format of play each day. The tournament formats will be best ball, Texas scramble, modified alternate shot and a scramble.
Short Par 4, a golf inspired box subscription service that ships hand curated, top quality, branded golf apparel, footwear and accessories directly to golfers, is in the first of a three-year agreement to be the event’s title sponsor. As part of its sponsorship, Short Par 4 will provide Fall Classic players with a gift box that includes custom branded apparel.
