Where? Golf’s Little Big Town
Everyone thought the folks in the Town of Santee were crazy when four years ago they announced a 3-day event in early December. Weather was deemed to be unpredictable and too cold! With three Winter 4 Ball Classics now in the books for the most part it is still impossible to predict the weather. The events have been an overwhelming success and as for the weatherman, so far he has cooperated.
The Winter 4 Ball Classic has been extremely popular for a couple of reason;
It’s a steal, starting at $549.00 per person Quad in a golf course Villa or Townhome at Santee Cooper Resort, includes 3 rounds of golf, 2 nights accommodations, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners
A ton of other stuff, this year’s participants will receive:
A Tour Edge HL5 Hydrid, Footjoy glove, a dozen On Core balls, any pair of Shoes in stock, golf shirt, Tournament Cap/visor and a tournament towel.
Mark the date, December 4-6, 2020, Friday check in Sunday check out…on the Friday of the event the Lake Marion pro shop will be buzzing with players checking in, filtering through their goody bags and trying to decide which shoes would be best for them from the thousands available.
One of the great things about an event such as this is the people that you meet from all over the Eastern USA, some even from as far as Illinois and Canada. The COVID jury is still out as to whether our Canadian friends will be able to join in the festivities. In a normal year you can expect 80-100 players – this year who knows.
Just like most of these fun events there is nothing life changing on the prize table, in fact the swag that every player received with entry to the event was over and above what was on the prize table.
For most coming to Santee for the Winter 4 ball find that 2 nights and 3 rounds is just not enough. Most will add on either before or after, some both. You might want to as well. Santee has 3 golf courses right in Town, Lake Marion, Santee Cooper Country Club and Santee National, and all within a mile of anywhere that you might be staying, another 14 courses are within a 45-minute drive.
For a small town of 800 which greet approximately 100,000 golfers annually, (many repeat visitors) it has a pretty good selection of restaurants. Southern Living will tell you that the historic Clark’s Inn & Restaurant is a must stop and most golfers will agree.
Others that are favorites with golfers are Armando’s, awesome Mexican cuisine with some of the biggest margarita’s, Captain Kirks with its fine selection of seafood and for a hunk of beef and some fine wine Wilbur’s will fit that bill.
