After finishing your round at the World Am, those with an appreciation for art and the game’s rich history will want to checkout the Fore! Images of Golf in Art exhibit at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum.
Fore! Images of Golf in Art was organized with the assistance of Harmon-Meek Gallery in Naples, FL, the United States Golf Association, private collectors and regional museums. The exhibition features more than 40 works of art celebrating the game of golf by nationally known artists like Will Barnet, Ray Ellis and Leroy Neiman as well as others known primarily in the golfing world.
Works in watercolor, oil and sculpture depict many of the all-time greats of the sport: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, Bobby Jones and the legendary Babe Didrikson.
Other images feature some of the most well known courses in the game, including Augusta, Ballybunion, Cypress Point, Merion, Royal St. George and Pebble Beach. Rounding out the exhibit are several pieces on loan from The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, the second-oldest course in the area, which opened in 1948.
Fore! Images of Golf in Art, which runs through September 15, is the perfect adjunct to a golf vacation, or perhaps the perfect alternative activity for a family looking for a few hours away from the beach.
Located at 3100 South Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, the Art Museum’s hours for the exhibit are from 10 a.m – 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 1 – 4 p.m. Sundays. Admission to the Art Museum is always free, but donations are welcome.
