The PGA Tour is adding another South Carolina stop, with the Myrtle Beach Classic launching in 2024.
The tour and tournament organizers signed a four-year agreement on Wednesday. The tournament, sponsored by Visit Myrtle Beach, will be played at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club.
Dates of the tournament will be announced as part of the full season schedule release. It will serve as an alternate event in the same week as a designated event, for which not all players qualify.
The winner will earn 300 FedExCup points as well as a share of a $3.9 million purse.
“We are thrilled to announce the debut of the Myrtle Beach Classic, an exciting new playing opportunity for our members in one of our country’s most recognized and visited destinations,” tour president Tyler Dennis said in a news release. “With its incredible passion for golf, the Myrtle Beach community is a natural fit to bring this tournament to life. We look forward to partnering with Visit Myrtle Beach for a first-class tournament at a championship venue.”
The Myrtle Beach Classic will join the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links as PGA Tour stops in South Carolina next year.
The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, a Robert Trent Jones-designed course, formerly hosted the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship on the Champions Tour from 1994-99.
