Myrtle Beach National Is New Host To GOLF Magazine TOP GOLF SCHOOL

Phil Ritson – Mel Sole Golf School “has done it longer and better than any school” says GOLF Magazine.

September 14, 2010, Pawleys Island, South Carolina – Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club is now part of Myrtle Beach National, the venerable and oldest golf course ownership/management company on the Grand Strand. Pawleys Plantation features an outstanding Nicklaus signature course in a unique and scenic coastal setting, just 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. Along with its attractive resort amenities, it has been home to the Phil Ritson – Mel Sole Golf School since 1991.

The Ritson-Sole academy has enjoyed 20 years of national recognition by the golf industry and by major travel publications. It is one of only 6 in the nation to remain on GOLF Magazine’s ‘Top 25 USA Golf Schools’ list since it debuted in 1999. No other Myrtle Beach area academy can say the same. In their current ranking, GOLF Magazine says about Ritson-Sole, “this group has done it longer and better than any school.”
With its emphasis on golf packages and beach vacations, Myrtle Beach National is a great fit for Ritson-Sole.

The Best Ever Golf School Package was launched in 2008 and has been lauded “the real deal” by GOLF VACATION INSIDER. This package includes 3 nights accommodations in a fairway suite, 3 breakfasts, 2 rounds of golf with carts at the on-site Pawleys Plantation course, plus 3 days of instruction at the Phil Ritson – Mel Sole Golf School. Total cost for the ‘Best Ever’ package is $799 in summer & winter, $899 in fall, and $999 in springtime. Taxes are included, and rates are per person based on double occupancy.

Golfers who have visited this golf academy have given it Top Honors in every TRIP ADVISOR and GOOGLE review. Excellent value is the draw at Ritson-Sole for golfers seeking top-notch instruction at an affordable price. Packages and also commuter rates for 3-day school are half (or better) than they’ll pay at other highly ranked academies.
“Our goal is to grow the game by offering a first-class experience for golfers to seriously improve their games without breaking the bank,” said Mel Sole. Sole, a veteran of the South African PGA Tour, is Director of Instruction, and a Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine ‘Top Teacher.’
