State of the Game By TOMMY SMOTHERS

General Manager Classic Golf Group

It goes without saying that the golf industry as a whole has been treading water for quite some time, hoping to stay afloat. The supply of available golf courses has decreased ever so slightly over the years, but the demand to play golf has decreased an enormous amount in relation. So many pressures have been placed upon the consumer...with the decision of how much available discretionary income should be used for entertainment being a major one.

One of the best ways that golf operators combat the problem of decreasing golf rounds is to offer discounts and incentives. And the creative golf operators realize that the future success of golf depends largely on our youth. With those two things in mind, the consumer can find very enticing offers from many courses around the country, especially in Myrtle Beach. Many of the Grand Strand courses allow junior golfers to play free with a paying adult. So when you are looking for some family entertainment while at the beach, instead of mini golf, take some time to play golf instead. The low cost will surprise you!

Speaking of junior golf, The First Tee is a great initiative of the World Golf Foundation that helps develop the golf skills of young people of all backgrounds. But more importantly, the organization helps youth build character, integrity, and honesty. Youth of all ages, ethnicity, and economic backgrounds are afforded the benefits of the program. The Classic Golf Group is proud to support and associate itself with such an enormous events, lessons, and clinics. If you have a child that is interested in playing golf and learning life-enhancing values, be certain to contact your local First Tee representative!

Although the trend in golf in recent years has shown decreases, it is finally showing a positive return. Many individuals, couples, and families are returning to the golf course. And having a family golf vacation to Myrtle Beach is a must on the list of many. If you are one of those that want to spend a day on the links, let the knowledgeable professionals at Classic Golf Getaways plan all the cumbersome details for you.
