Honda Classic Pro-Am Experience w/Ernie Els

Ed Holofcener and Ernie Els
Ed Holofcener and Greg Norman
Our very own President, Ed Holofcener, just had an amazing golfing experience this past week that was incredibly memorable.  Here’s a short description of his experience:

"The Honda Classic Pro-Am.  We had a fantastic day and being teamed up with Ernie Els could not have been any better - he was an excellent playing partner. There's a reason they call him “The Big Easy”.   He was engaging with us all day and was always there for a fist bump after a great shot or clutch putt.  Teeing off on the 1st tee was pretty nerve-racking as there were a few hundred people watching.  Luckily, I had a really nice drive and that settled me down for the rest of the day.

Ed Holofcener and Ricke Fowler
We played very well as a team and we were actually the leaders in the clubhouse when we finished and for most of the afternoon. However, at the end of the day, the last two groups somehow nudged past us - so we finished a solid 3rd out of a total of 50 teams. I’ll take that!

Rickie Fowler's group was right behind us and Greg Norman and his celebrity group with Kenny G and Shane Battier and Joe Mauer were right behind them.

One of the best, most memorable days of my golfing life."

Golf Zoo Top Post-Round Entertainment Options in Myrtle Beach

What happens on the golf course, as important as it is, is only half the fun on a trip. What you do after the final putt drops matters, and there is as much fun to be had in Myrtle Beach as any destination in America.

Amidst a sea of choices, what should top your list of nocturnal destinations?

-- Broadway at the Beach, a 23-acre shopping, dining and entertainment complex, is at the heart of Myrtle Beach’s nightlife scene. With more than 20 bars and restaurants ranging from a Japanese steakhouse to Dave & Buster’s, if your group can’t entertain itself at Broadway, it might be time to think about finding new friends. The complex remodeled a couple years ago and is better than ever. If you are going to be out late, don’t miss Crocodile Rocks, a piano bar that always delivers a great time.

-- If your group is staying along the South Strand, a trip to Murrells Inlet’s MarshWalk is a must. The ¼ mile wooden boardwalk takes you on stroll along a beautiful saltwater estuary (and Goat Island) and eight waterfront restaurants. Fresh, locally caught seafood and live music are staples of nearly every menu as Murrells Inlet is known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina. With a menu that features everything from sushi to the catch of the day, Wicked Tuna is one of the area’s best restaurants and diners get to eat on a second-story deck, providing a panoramic view of the inlet.

-- Topgolf is still weeks from opening, but with anticipation reaching a fever pitch, it had to make our list. Located across the road from Broadway at the Beach, what better thing to do after a round of golf in Myrtle Beach than head to Topgolf to play some more? With 72 climate controlled hitting bays, hundreds of TVs, and a full service restaurant and bar, you won’t go wrong at Topgolf Myrtle Beach.
