Golf with the pros

Golf Myrtle Beach

Sure, Augusta is home to the PGA Masters Tournament. But Myrtle Beach, SC, has the Monday After the Masters – one of the country’s most popular Celebrity Pro-Am tournaments.

It all started in 1994 as a charity event organized by members of the band Hootie & the Blowfish. They’ve since raised millions for the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation and the South Carolina junior golf program. You never know who may show up to Monday After the Masters. In past years, actors, athletes, comedians and musicians have joined golf icons like John Daly and Tiger Woods on the links. From April 13 through 15, participants will enjoy exclusive parties, practice rounds and a Hootie & the Blowfish and Friends concert.

Dance the night away

Carolina Shag

The Grand Strand is home to the shag dance craze that caught the South by storm around the 1940s and has grown in popularity ever since. From April 10 through May 4, thousands of shaggers will do their thing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, during the Society of Stranders Spring Safari.

This event attracts lovers of beach music and shaggers from all over for 10 days of dancing, friendship and nightlife in the area’s most beloved local hotspots. The event culminates with a massive parade featuring floats from the Association of Carolina Shag Clubs.

Run with the Divas
