Package Provides Great Option For Patrons Heading To, Or Returning From The Masters In Augusta, To Enjoy Golf At Special Prices And More Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

Litchfield Country Club

At this time of year, we often enjoy even warmer weather than Augusta. Our courses in Pawleys Island have huge azaleas blooming as brilliantly as those you see on TV during The Masters. April is the perfect time to enjoy a few rounds at these courses.

Founders Group International (FGI) is offering a special Azalea Golf Package for the month of April 2016. The package enables golfers to play three great Myrtle Beach area courses known for their challenging layouts and spectacular azaleas at up to 44 percent off the regular price. The package is being offered in honor of two memorable aspects of The Masters (April 7 - 10 in Augusta, Ga.) — its mature azaleas and signature pimento cheese sandwiches.

The Azalea Golf Package is $198 for three rounds of golf on the Litchfield Country Club, Willbrook Plantation Golf Club and Tradition Golf Club courses in Pawleys Island, S.C. The large azaleas and other flowering plants throughout the courses make them some of the most beautiful along the Grand Strand during the spring. As a special bonus this April, clubhouse restaurants will offer pimento cheese sandwiches, a popular item among Masters' patrons during tournament week.

“Every year, golfers travel through Myrtle Beach on their way to The Masters,” said Steve Mays, director of marketing and sales for Founders Group International. “At this time of year, we're often enjoying even warmer weather than Augusta. Our courses in Pawleys Island have huge azaleas blooming as brilliantly as those you see on TV during The Masters. So, April is the perfect time to enjoy a few rounds at these beautiful courses.”

Built on a former rice plantation, Litchfield Country Club is known for its Southern charm. The oldest course in the laid-back Litchfield/Pawleys Island area of the Grand Strand, Litchfield celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. From an antebellum clubhouse with elegant stairs leading to a covered porch, to its decades-old azaleas lining the walkways, it has matured gracefully over the years and remains one of the most popular courses on the Strand.

Consistently rated as one of the Myrtle Beach area's most enjoyable golf courses, Willbrook Plantation is popular among players who use the forward tees, as well as those playing from the back. Opened in 1988, its 18 holes are on historic land in use since the 1770s. Its fairways weave though centuries-old, moss-draped oaks and giant azaleas, as the course offers spectacular views of wildlife within its beautiful marshes.

Now in its 21st year, Tradition Golf Club was nominated as best New Public Course by Golf Digest when it opened. It has also been recognized as one of Golf For Women's Top Fairways, and as a South Carolina Golf Course of the Year. Accented by decades-old azaleas and other blooming plants, Tradition offers a “Mega Practice Complex” that is the perfect place to warm up before a round.
