Grand Strand Golf: Love golf and have a phone? You can earn $10,000 and a trip

Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday has created one of its most ambitious promotions to date.

The marketing cooperative is giving away $10,000 and a free golf vacation through a promotion it has dubbed the “Myrtle Beach Golf Is Great Video Contest.”

Individuals or groups of golfers are urged to shoot a video on a golf course that is 3 minutes or less and explains – hopefully with some creativity – why they think golf is great.

“Golf gets some negative publicity from time to time, and we’re trying to stimulate some consumers to tell us why they love the game and why they love playing it, and if it includes why they love playing it in Myrtle Beach that’s even better,” Golf Holiday president Bill Golden said. “Our goal is to try to stimulate some content and some positive commentary on golf.

“We’ll do a public relations initiative and push this information out when we get it all done. It will certainly provide great content for us to use in time.”

Entrants can post their videos to Facebook or YouTube with the hashtag #GolfisGreat and share the link with Golf Holiday. The video must be posted and a submission form entered by Oct. 1.

Originality will be highly valued.

Videos have started to roll in, and many are quite entertaining.
