Top Myrtle Beach Golf Academy extends Best Ever Golf School Package Due to Popular Demand

GOLF Magazine Says Phil Ritson-Mel Sole Golf School Is One Of Golf’s Best Values Among The Top 5 Of America’s Best 25 Golf Schools

February 25, 2010, Pawleys Island, S.C.  –  Due to popular demand, the Phil Ritson-Mel Sole Golf School in Pawleys Island, S.C., has extended its “Best Ever Golf School Package” through November 28, 2010. The package combines deluxe accommodations, golf on Pawleys Plantation’s award-winning Jack Nicklaus-designed course, daily breakfast, and three-days of golf school at the Ritson-Sole Golf School. GOLF Magazine recently ranked this academy TOP 5 in America, and currently says, “This group has done it longer and better than any school in the nation.”

The “Best Ever Golf School Package” ranges from $799 to $999 per person, based on double occupancy, taxes inclusive. It includes three nights accommodations in a luxurious one-bedroom suite, two rounds of golf with carts on Pawleys Plantation’s signature Jack Nicklaus course, three breakfasts, and three-days of golf instruction at the highly acclaimed, on-site Ritson-Sole Golf School, known for offering top quality instruction at an affordable price.

“This package is one of the most popular ever offered by our resort,” said Jann Walker, Director of Marketing at Pawleys Plantation. “Golfers have really responded to the philosophy of our golf school [with emphasis on proven fundamentals] and Mel’s commitment to offering top-notch instruction at reasonable rates. Mel’s goal is to grow the game of golf. Game improvement equals player retention. People shouldn’t have to pay high prices for top quality instruction because that makes learning the game and game improvement unaffordable for many middle-income people. So Mel breaks down this barrier by offering a first-class golf experience at a price most people can afford.”

The golf school has several instructors including owner and GOLF Magazine  Top Teacher, Mel Sole. Class size is limited to four students to ensure plenty of individual attention. Unlike most golf schools, students are not moved to different instructors for chipping, putting, iron play, etc. Each class stays with its own instructor throughout all parts of the full swing and short game, and the resulting rapport and continuity means maximum improvement.

“A package like this would cost three or four times as much at any other Top 25 golf school,” said Jann Walker, Director of Marketing at Pawleys Plantation. “Mel’s commitment to making top instruction affordable is one of the reasons that the Ritson-Sole Golf School is considered one of the best values among America’s top schools.”
