We are excited to kick off our Spring Break golf tournament this weekend at Wachesaw East Golf Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The inaugural Nextgengolf Spring Break Open will include 13 teams and over 70 students from across the country participating in a team best-ball format.
The idea for a Spring Break tournament was developed out of a desire from NCCGA club teams and students wanting additional tournaments to play in. The NCCGA only has two tournaments per region each semester, three for the teams that qualify for the National Championship. But many teams have a large number of students in the club and want more events to involve other members.
The first Spring Break Open features teams traveling from as far away as Milwaukee, New York, and Texas. Overall the field will include students from:
- Georgia Tech
- Wright State
- William & Mary
- Central Connecticut State
- Slippery Rock
- SUNY Cortland
- High Point
The tournament will take place over two days at Wachesaw East Golf Club outside of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The event will kick off each day around noon with a double-tee start and will conclude on Sunday evening. There will be a Long Drive contest on Hole #10 (515-yard Par 5), and a Closest to the Pin on ALL Par-3 holes during both rounds.
We look forward to seeing all the teams this weekend! And for those that couldn't attend this year's Spring Break Open, stay tuned for additional tournaments such as these to be offered by Nextgengolf going forward. If you have any suggestions on additional tournaments to be offered feel free to send them to me anytime.
