The Dye Golf Club – Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am
Since 1994, Hootie & the Blowfish have hosted an annual Celebrity Pro-Am, which has raised millions of dollars for children’s educational programs and the South Carolina junior golf program.
The Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation is a non-profit organization created by the band to support a number of philanthropical endeavors, including public educational issues in South Carolina.
Over $1.8 million has been raised by the foundation and a majority of that funding comes from their annual Monday After the Masters Golf Tournament (MAM).
Every April, MAM brings celebrities and professional golfers together in Myrtle Beach to raise money for the foundation and the South Carolina Junior Golf Association.
Besides golf, the event also includes a number of parties, concerts, a celebrity long drive contest and silent auctions.
For the 15th straight year, Barefoot Resort and Golf is the host site for this amazing event.
The Dye Golf Club
4980 Barefoot Resort Bridge Rd.
North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582
Length: 7,343 yards
The Dye Golf Club is a semi-private facility surrounded by a private-gated community. Named after legendary designer Pete Dye, the course is both beautiful and treacherous, creating an experience golfers will not soon forget.
Golfers will think landing areas may look tight from the tee, but will find the fairways generous. First-timers who see the course can be intimidated by the seemingly never ending array of bunkers, elevation changes and water hazards lined with railroad ties, but experienced players who do not let the course play them can do well.
