Myrtle Beach Named Official “Buddies Trip” Destination Of Barstool Classic

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Myrtle Beach, golf’s most popular destination, has been named the official “Buddies Trip” of the Barstool Classic, the game’s leading tournament series.

The Barstool Classic began its 25-event schedule at True Blue Golf Club on March 6. The one-day tournaments are being played in 18 states and Toronto, Canada, with courses such as The Greenbrier, TPC Boston, and Grand Traverse Resort joining True Blue as high-profile hosts in 2023.

As the official “Buddies Trip” of the Barstool Classic,, the Grand Strand’s leading golf trip planning resource, will have activation opportunities at every event. The winner of the closest-to-pin contest at each tournament will also receive free entry into the 40th Annual World Amateur Handicap Championship, a 72-hole, net stroke play event that annually attracts more than 3,200 people from across the globe to Myrtle Beach.

Additionally, one lucky “Stoolie” will win a free trip to Myrtle Beach that includes:

  • Two nights, three rounds for four golfers
  • Two Double Occupancy Rooms
  • Three rounds of golf on a Golf Tourism Solutions member course
  • Visit to learn more and enter.

The Myrtle Beach golf community’s partnership with the Barstool Classic extends a relationship that began in 2022 when the Fore Play podcast team brought its ever-popular travel series to the area, spotlighting Pine Lakes Country Club, Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club, TPC Myrtle Beach, and True Blue. The YouTube series included four videos that all generated over 125,000 views.

Barstool’s team – Trent, Riggs, Frankie, and Dan – have enjoyed a meteoric rise based on the popularity of its Fore Play podcast, an engaging, irreverent look at the game through the eyes of regular golfers. Many of golf’s biggest names have appeared on Fore Play, reaching a younger, yet no less passionate, audience.
