Mystical Golf Announces Eighth Annual Christmas Child Golf Tournament

Mystical Golf, owner and operator of the Witch, Man-O-War and Wizard golf courses in Myrtle Beach, will hold its eighth annual Christmas Child Golf Tournament on Saturday, December 17.

All proceeds directly benefit kids at the Lighthouse Care Center of Conway and Lighthouse Care Center in Augusta, Ga. A new beneficiary this year is a child-care facility in Surfside Beach, S.C. With last year's event bringing in over $14,000, more than $100,000 has been raised since 2003.

The Lighthouse facilities care for 180 children from the ages of 12-17 suffering from behavioral disorders. Funds generated provide activities as rewards for good conduct - including a trip to Carowinds Amusement Park, monthly visits to a local theater and an annual trip to the Alabama Theatre Christmas Show. Additionally, as a Christmas gift, kids are presented with a new pair of sneakers of their own choosing.

"Our annual Christmas Child golf tournament is the most important event on our calendar at Mystical Golf," said Claude Pardue, president and CEO of Mystical Golf. "The generosity of our attendees and community assist greatly in directly rewarding children for good behavior as they find the right path for a successful life.

"Our goal is to one day bring joy to children at all nine Lighthouse Care Centers."

This year's event will again be played on the Wizard and Man-O-War courses, with lunch provided. The format is Captain's Choice. Prizes with be awarded for longest drive and closest to the pin. Raffle and mulligan packages will be available for purchase. The cost is $65 per player or $260 a team. Hole and green sponsorships are available for $100 each, or $345 per team. The entry deadline is December 9.
