Instead of pre-booking golf, I recommend that you use the GolfNow app once you are in Myrtle Beach. Guys are playing for half the price and have tons of choices. However, if you really want a certain course and/or want a guaranteed itinerary, let me know and I'll book your golf thru my package guy.
FLIGHT INFO as of 9-18-2018
Allegiant from PIT to MYR only flies on Sunday and Thursday. That doesn't really work for our itinerary.
Spirit from PIT to MYR only flies on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. That doesn't really work for our itinerary either.
Spirit from Latrobe to MYR flies every day except Saturday. This option isn't going to work for us either.
BEST OPTION: Probably American Airlines. They fly everyday and have many flights to choose from. I just saw a 12:05pm departure from Pittsburgh on Monday arriving at 3:23pm in Myrtle Beach, going thru Charlotte for as low as $281 per person. The return flight was at 12:43pm with a 4:26pm arrival in Pittsburgh, going thru Charlotte. That's a nice itinerary for the Short trip.
LUGGAGE: Luggage fees thru Spirit are currently listed at $35 for your first bag and $45 for your second bag EACH WAY. That's $160 total for only 80 pounds of luggage.
If you prefer the convenience of not lugging your bags to and from the airports, there will be luggage service provided by some of the drivers. The cost is only $25 per bag each way. That's $60 cheaper than the airlines would be for 2 bags roundtrip. With our luggage service, you will not have weight restrictions on your bags and they will be delivered directly to the condo developement. Bags will need to be dropped off to the driver by 5pm on the day before his departure.
Tentative Luggage haulers are:
Saturday departure - Dale Baker Sr and Nick Baker (hauling Dale Jr, Herb, Izzy)
Monday departure - Paul, JF (hauling Osh, Mike Conlan)
2019 Tournament Gaming fee of $150 to be paid upon arrival in Myrtle Beach
Payouts based on 24 participants, starting Tuesday and going thru Friday
$500 Tournament Purse - The top 7 will win: $150, $100, $70, $60, $50, $40, $30
$440 Daily Point Winners - Top 4 Daily High Point Totals on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday will win: $40, $30, $20, $20
$1,240 Closest to the Pins - CPs will be worth $40 each on Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday. Then, on Championship Friday EVERY HOLE will have a $40 CP on them. There will not be carryovers. Any leftover CPs will be awarded via a raffle. You may only win 7 CPs. Any CP won after you've won the max will go to the raffle. $280 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.
$460 CHIP-IN & MONEY HOLE (#1 hcp) GAME - Every Chip-In AND every PAR or Better on the MONEY HOLE during individual play will be worth one share of the purse. 2 share maximum for MONEY HOLE. 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.
$960 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 12 in the field (or have a HCP Avg of 90 or better), your money will be allocated to the A Flight game. If you are in the bottom 12 in the field (or have a HCP Avg of 91 or higher), 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 A Flight game or you may pay $10 per day to be included in the A Flight game in addition to the B Flight game.
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. $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 the SKINS game. Any money won over $300 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.
$1,000 in BONUS PAYOUTS - $560 to the SKINS Game pots ($140/day into A), $440 to the Chip-In & Money Hole pot
