Besides my regular game at my home course, once a year I get together with a group of 40 guys every April in Myrtle Beach. This will be my 11th year but the core group and founding members will be on their 28th consecutive year. This group started as a trio of brothers and their friends from Eastern PA but as the core group has moved around the country, the number of attendees (new friends, business associates, etc) has grown over the years to it's current number of 7 foursomes (about the biggest manageable number you can get off a course in a day).
The 2 brothers who spearhead this group have really done a cool job combining fun and a well organized week of activities/games with a sense of history and tradition. At the end of each week, a "Green Jacket" is awarded to the golfer who performs the best relative to his abilities. Lots of other "awards" are given including rookie of the year, ironman (biggest partier), and best dressed (tongue in cheek).
This year they have put together a web site that documents the weeks activities along with the various betting games that we play while we are down there. It takes an accountant to decipher the scorecard at the end of a round in keeping track of all the bets but it really is a great way to spend a week. The web site is here for anyone who is interested in seeing how one group runs their spring trip to Myrtle!
