and I had a FABULOUS time at your tournament.
It’s very well run and obvious that a
lot of work went into it. We were lucky enough
to win 3rd net in our flight, but it would not
have mattered. We met fantastic people all week.

enjoyable for me.
for all the work.
son and I tried to track you down at the tourney
to say thanks for another great year, but never
did run into you. So, I thought I’d drop
you a note to let you know we think you and
your staff did another excellent job running
the tournament this year and we had a great
time. We met and played with some really nice
people and the golf courses and staffs were
all A-One. It’s amazing actually when
you consider the number of people involved,
that it is so well run all we have to do is
show up on time and it’s automatic from

hope to see you next year,

On behalf of my father and I, I would like to
thank you for the wonderful experience last
week at the Father & Son Tournament.
The organization, hospitality and overall service
was outstanding. The staff at each of the courses
we played, from the pro shop staff to the rangers,
we extremely nice and helpful. You can see that
the courses really cherish being part of your
tournament (in fact, my father asked if you
require everyone to take smiling classes before
Once again, thank you for the opportunity to
play. We look forward to future tournaments.
Father & Son Team Classic,
We just wanted to take the chance to thank you
for a perfectly organized tournament and a great
experience. 2007 was our first year to play
the Father & Son Team Classic but it will
definitely not be the last time.
Although traveling from Germany is quite a distance
just to participate in the tournament it was
worth every single mile we traveled. We enjoyed
ourselves very much and can only recommend the
tournament to every golf enthusiast.
Thank you for the great time we had and the
wonderful job you guys did.
Fredi & Volker Linde
My son Carlos and I want to thank you
for the excellent Father & Son Tournament
you have just
conducted in Myrtle Beach. We enjoyed ourselves
immensely, our golf game could have been a bit
better, but everything else went very well,
the quality and condition of the courses, the
weather, the organization, the playing partners,
the activities. Where do we sign up for next
year, you have two enthused and convinced customers.
Again, thank you much, it was a lot of work,
but you guys pulled it off beautifully.

way, win or lose I just wanted to tell you that
your tournament was one of best experiences
we have ever enjoyed. Everything was well
run, organized and first class.
I have been gushing about it ever since we came
home, and plan to come back next year.
You guys did an excellent job!

I just wanted to tell you what a great time
we had last week. This was the first (but not
the last) Father & Son that my son and I
participated. Not only was the tournament, activities,
barbeque, golf courses, etc. outstanding, but
our lodging at Legends and the people of Myrtle
Beach were all really something. Please put
us down for next year. Next Year, we are bringing
our wives and my grandchildren with us. This
was a once in a lifetime experience.
Sincerely, Bob DiTullio
My son John and I have just attended our 8th
consecutive Father/Son...John starting when
he was 15. This is an absolutely premier
event, run very professionally and we thoroughly
enjoyed every one of them. It has
truly been the one event that has nurtured our
relationship the most, one of the goals of the
tournament, so for that we are grateful.
Sincerely, Rich Hassan
just wanted to take a minute to let you guys
know what this tournament means to some of us.
Last year, my father-in-law, Bill Cox, found
out 2 months before the tournament that he had
colon cancer. He worked with his oncology team
to schedule his treatment around the 2006 Father-Son.
It was not an easy year for him, but he persevered
through discomfort and loss of stamina to play
some pretty inspiring golf. We were fortunate
enough to pull it together and win our flight
and I cannot tell you how much that helped him
through the treatment and recovery process.
He placed his crystal where he could see it
every day and has worked hard so that he can
stay on schedule to compete again this year.
That was his goal from the Monday after last
year’s event. I wish I could have captured
those moments when he was at his lowest and
still stating that he would be just fine by
July with a sly little wink. It was in no way
easy, but he is ready to go. I know this may
not mean much in the grand scheme of things,
but I hope it means as much to you as your tournament
means to us. This will be our 3rd year competing
and it has become an entire week long vacation
for the family and that one week per year that
we both look forward to again as soon as it
believe it's our ninth year to play. We
started the second year and haven't missed one
since and don't plan to. We've introduced
it to three other pairs and will add one more
this year. We make it a big get together
each year. I look at it like the Master
Card commercial. Entry fee $895.
Playing golf with your son for three days, priceless.
& Kirk Wheeler
highlight of our year. As you can see,
we start dreaming of SC in January up here in
the frozen tundra. Best courses, best
accommodations, best value, best golf store,
best people...what can I say, this tournament
is - the best! We're adding another day to our
trip this year because we can't get enough.
Can't wait to see everyone again!

This was the second year we played in the event.
This is such a wonderful concept. It
is so much more than about golf.
It allows my dad and me to spend five
days of quality time together, which is so very
rare since we live about two hours apart and
we seldom just get to kick back anymore.
We stay at the beach and enjoy the ocean,
we enjoy the dining, we enjoy the playing competitors
we have met over the past two years, and absolutely
love the golf and the competitive nature of
the tournament. We
will be back.
was our first tournament and we really had a
great time. I could not believe how well organized
a program of this magnitude was so well planned.
Thank all the organizers and sponsors for a
job well done.

Just a quick note of thanks to you and your staff
for the outstanding work done for the Father &
Son Team Classic. We had a great time all week
and actually won our flight, my dad really played
well and was really excited telling everyone about
HIS shots that sealed the victory! Well done and
we’ll see you next year.

I would like to personally thank you guys for
putting on a great tournament this year. This
was my second year playing with my father-in-law
and we have had a blast. The staff at the courses
were all great and the condition of the courses
we played (TPC, Avocet, Wachesaw) was awesome.
We look forward to playing again many times.

First of all I wanted to thank you for a great
experience for my 80 year old father (Paul) and

This is still the best tournament ever because
it has given me precious time with my son. Thank
you all for your hard work. It is outstanding
to see how well this event is run. What ever it
is that you do to make this such a successful
event please continue. You people are the greatest.

I would also like to express my appreciation for
a very enjoyable time at the tournament.
It was our first, but hopefully not our last!
There were several things I would mention:
the staff at Wild Wing did an excellent job, both
with service and providing for us on the course.
The coolers at the par 3s full of ice and water
were very much appreciated, in addition to the
beverage cart service. Thanks again for a great

This was the first year that my dad and I attended
the tournament and I can safely speak for both
of us in saying that we had a wonderful time.
I live approximately two hours from my dad and
even though we see each other every couple of
months we seldom get to spend any time golfing
together. The trip was met with such anticipation
and culminated in a second place finish in our
flight. I couldn't ask for a more enjoyable
trip as the hotel/beach was great as well as the
golf and dinners.
Although this was our first time playing in the
tournament we both felt that the event we extremely
well run; everything from registration, to check
in at the courses and down to the food.
More importantly, is there a date set for next
year’s tournament? That’s providing
there is a tournament next year. We have
already talked to a few individuals, telling them
stories about this year’s trip, and they
are very interested for next year. And of
course it is a no-brainer that my dad and I will
be returning next year. We let so many opportunities
slip away on day two that we want a chance to
redeem ourselves. Not really, I just look
forward to another memorable trip with my dad.
Thanks for a planning and running such a wonderful
event. Looking forward to next year.

My son Jonathan and I played in this years Father
& Son Team Classic for the first time. What
a great time we had fellowshipping with the other
guys and each other.
Kudos to the tournament organizers, everything
was run so smoothly from the web site entry, flighting,
skill challenges, getting 700 plus golfers to
the correct courses and tee times and delicious
meals (wonderful fried chicken at Pine Lakes).
Look forward to seeing you next year.
