Paul's 2024 extended trip plan:
I plan to depart at 9:30am for a 2pm tee time at Olde Homeplace Golf Club that is a little south of Winston-Salem. I plan to stay at a Ramada by Wyndham that is a little north of Winston-Salem, only 17 minutes from the course. Then, finish the drive (only 6 hours) on Sunday morning. The long drive home is the worst part of the trip. This will make the trip home a little more enjoyable.
Short Trip Price: $850 per person, includes private single room (3 guys per condo)
Package includes: 5 nights, 4 rounds.
We arrive on Monday and golf on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We depart on Saturday.
Master Suite upgrade: $75 for the week for Master Suites with private Bathroom, limited availibility.
$200 Deposit to hold your spot (due before October 31, 2023)
Final Payment due before January 31, 2024
All Trip Packages include deluxe lodging in a 3-bedroom golf course condo (triple Occupancy), Championship Golf, Linens & Towels, Tournament Administration, Departure Maid Service, and up to $1,000 in bonus payouts (with 24 golfers). Once deposits are sent to the realty company (December 1), they become non-refundable.
If you sign-up with less than the 3 person minimum per condo, the trip organizer reserves the right to place a single golfer in your condo. Also, if you sign-up as a single, you understand that you will be placed in a condo at the trip organizer's descretion.
PLEASE NOTE: Room assignments are not guaranteed. The realty company reserves the right to switch our reservations in cases where a unit may become unavailable. The trip organizer reserves the right to make changes to the proposed room assignments if the trip roster changes. The trip organizer will do everything possible to honor all rooming requests and prior reservations.
Flight Info from 2023
The best flight that I see is thru Travelocity for $298.20 for roundtrip on American Airlines with stops in Charlotte each way. Depart PIT on Saturday, April 15 at 12:25pm with a 3:39pm arrival at MYR. Then, coming home, depart MYR on Saturday, April 22 at 12:44pm with a 4:01pm arrival at Pit.
There will be luggage service available from some of the drivers. If you want to send your stuff with a driver, instead of lugging it thru the airports, please let us know. We will happily transport your 2 bags for $25/bag each way. That's $100 total. Spirit currently charges $148 at booking, or $188 at check-in, for the same 2 bags. American charges $140 roundtrip.
2023 Tournament Gaming fee of $150 to be paid upon arrival in Myrtle Beach
Payouts based on 20 participants, starting Tuesday and going thru Friday
$300 Tournament Purse - The top 4 will win: $120, $80, $60, $40
$400 Daily Point Winners - Top 2 Daily High Point Totals in each flight will win: $30 and $20 every day.
$750 Closest to the Pins - CPs will be worth $25 each on the first 3 days. Then, on Championship Day EVERY HOLE will also have a $25 CP on them. There will not be carryovers. Any leftover CPs will be awarded via a raffle. You may only win 8 CPs. Any CP won after you've won the max will go to the raffle. Once 8 CPs are confirmed won, the player should not sign for or measure their shots. $200 in winnings is enough cash for your $50 investment. NEW 2019 - Players playing from the GOLD tees will also play the GOLD tees on Par 3s.
$750 CHIP-IN GAME - Every Chip-In during individual play will be worth one share of the total purse. Any shot that is holed from off of the green is considered a Chip-In. It doesn't matter what club you use. If you are not on the putting surface, it is a Chip-In. Also, PAR is not needed.
$800 SKINS GAME (Birdie or Better to Qualify) - TWO DIVISIONS - (all individual golf Tuesday thru Friday) - $10 per person per day will go towards this purse. If you are in the top HALF of the field, your money will be allocated to the Big game. If you are in the bottom HALF of the field, your money will be allocated to the B Flight game. However, if you are placed in the B Flight game, you may choose to be put in the Big game or you may pay $10 per day to be included in the Big game in addition to the B Flight game. Also, if you are placed in the Big game but your average is 90 or higher, you may pay to play in the B Flight game. There will also be an additional $400 Surplus Money added to this purse, $100 into the Big game DAILY.
Every SKIN will be worth one share of the day's purse. Remember, this is a SKINS game, BIRDIES on the same hole WILL cancel each other. Eagles beat Birdies, and an Albatross beats an Eagle. $100 is the maximum amount of a skin, except on the final day, they can be worth $200. Any leftover money will carry to the next day. Any leftover money on the final day will go to the raffle.
$300 is the maximum that you can win in a SKINS game. The Big game is separate from the B Flight game. Any money won over $300 in one game will be put into the raffle and you will be removed from the game. You will not be refunded for the remaining days. The tournament committee feels that $300 in winnings is enough cash for your $40 investment for that game.
$400 MONEY HOLE GAME - Everyone that makes PAR on the #1 handicap hole each day will get one share of the $100 Surplus Money daily purse. All Birdies (or Better) will get TWO shares.
BONUS SIGN-UP: You can elect to be in the following:
$20 Natural Eagles or Better - You get $20 from everyone on the list if you get an Eagle or Better, but you also pay $20 to anyone else that gets an Eagle or Better. 2 divisions - "OPEN" and "B Flight". AVGs of 80 & lower can only play for a maximum of $10.
$20 100yard Hole Out - You get $20 from everyone on the list if you hole out from 100yards+, but you also pay $20 to anyone else that holes out from 100yards+
$20-$60 Hole in Ones - You only pay, or collect the amount (up to or less than) you've selected. You CAN also collect 100yard Hole-Out and/or Eagle, if you are in them.
