MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina – The inaugural Saintnine Shootout, a 36-hole event hosted by Golf Channel personality Charlie Rymer, will be played Sept. 5-6 at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club, two of this area’s top layouts.
Entry into the Saintnine Shootout, which is capped at 120 players, is $175 and includes two rounds of golf, a dozen Saintnine U-Pro golf balls, and shoulder wraps from Sparms Sun Protection. The two-day individual outing will offer players the opportunity to participate in a variety of cash games.
The event will be played on the heels of the 37th annual PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur Handicap Championship, which will conclude on Sept. 4.
“The emphasis of the Saintnine Shootout will be on fun,” said Tournament Director Scott Tomasello. “Golfers will have the opportunity to play two great golf courses, enjoy spending time with Charlie Rymer, and of course, win a few skins. Saintnine is a perfect partner and this is an event we look forward to growing over time.”
Based in South Korea, Saintnine manufactures golf balls that were introduced to the United States market in February of 2019. Rymer is a brand ambassador for the company. Saintnine will also be a prize partner of the World Am, providing daily contest winners with a dozen golf balls.
Caledonia, the first solo design by legendary architect Mike Strantz, is a consensus top 100 public layout. Pawleys Plantation, a Jack Nicklaus Signature course, is highlighted by a back nine that includes six holes that play along a saltwater marsh, making it one of the state’s more scenic courses.
