Top pair score – Best ball between 2 teammates within a group

Top team score – 4 individual scores combined

Top individual score

Daily closest to the pin and long drive prizes

Can our group pay separately?

If you are NOT booking lodging through us, your group is absolutely able to pay separately. Simply follow the registration process and make payment! If you want to be paired on the golf course with a certain player (format is 2-person best-ball), please email Connor@nextgengolf.org with the request.

If you ARE booking lodging through us in addition to your tournament fee, we will require one group payment. We recommend designating one person to make the payment, and the other group members writing that person a check, use Venmo, etc.

Can I receive an invoice?

Yes! If you require an invoice (many schools need one to process payment), please email Connor@nextgengolf.org with all of your details (how many players, lodging, etc.) and we can create an invoice for you!

How many people can I bring?

There is no minimum or maximum for number of people you can bring. The format is 2-person best-ball, so if you have an odd number we will pair you with another player.

What kind of deposit is required for the package?

We require a $50 per person deposit to reserve your place in the event. The remaining balance for the event is due 30 days prior to the tournament.

Can we get our own lodging?

Yes, you can pay the tournament fee for the event and book your own lodging. Packages are customized to your needs.

Are meals included in the package price?

Yes. In an effort to provide an “all-in” package for our golfers, you will get 5 meals included in the package. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the course each day as well as a player social gathering on Saturday evening of the tournament which includes a light dinner.

Why is the package so affordable?

The Nextgengolf Spring Break Package was designed with the price sensitive college golfer in mind. Our goal was to put together a complete spring break package for golf teams at a location which could offer great golf courses, excellent practice facilities, good food, nearby lodging as well as entertainment outside of golf. Our goal is to keep everything really simple and provide a great experience and pre-season open event for college golfers.

Can friends or alumni be included in the package?

Yes, teams will often bring recent alumni and friends of the team to play in the event.

Can we play courses other than those that are scheduled?

Yes, if you are looking to play other courses outside of the tournament, we are happy to help. The Legends has 3 courses on-site and we will only be playing 2 of them. Teams are welcome to play the 3rd course at a discounted rate of $42+ tax. Myrtle Beach has over 90 courses to choose from.

What happens if it rains and we can't play?

If we are unable to play due to inclement weather, the event will turn into a 1-day tournament and we will work with the course to provide players refunds

Do we have to play in competition against other schools?

No. If you are a golf team just looking to come down and play/practice with your team, your scores can be hidden from the tournament field. This is especially important for varsity golf teams to remain compliant with their governing conference.

Is it compliant to compete against other schools?

The National Collegiate Club Golf Association is sanctioning this event. NCCGA is the governing body for collegiate club golf. For the spring break open, any varsity or club golf team is able to compete in this tournament. Since the event format is a two-person best ball, this event should not be considered a team-based competition.
Teams part of the NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA and other athletic associations need to check with their compliance officer for team compliance. This event does not count in any National, Regional, or Conference standings. The NCCGA is not held responsible for any compliance sanctions for golf teams playing in the Spring Break Open.

How many days do we need to stay?

Teams usually stay for 3-4 days. We have no minimum or maximum requirements.
