Nursing your game: Myrtle Beach fundraising tournament benefits ER staff, charities

Posted 12/6/2013 1:33:00 PM

If your golf game is “ailing” and needs a little mid-winter TLC – and a trip to the beach wouldn’t be bad, either – then the Coastal Carolina chapter of the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) has just the “prescription” for you.

The ENA chapter will stage its inaugural charity golf outing at Myrtle Beach’s Grande Dunes Resort Club on Dec. 7, with proceeds benefiting a number of local charitable programs. The tournament, an 18-hole scramble format for four-person teams, begins at 9 a.m.

Grande Dunes Resort Club, designed by famed architect Roger Rulewich, has earned good reviews by local and tourist players. In June 2014, the course, which debuted in 2001, will co-host the PGA Professional National Championship along with the nearby Dunes Golf & Beach Club, the premier club-pro event of the PGA of America.

Entry fees of $100 per person include golf, pre-round breakfast, lunch and tournament-logo polo shirt. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third pace teams, and a silent auction will follow play. Proceeds from the tournament will go toward providing local nursing scholarships, and to Myrtle Beach programs for child safety and victims of sexual assault.
