The PGA Tour is returning to South Carolina's Grand Strand golf and beach resort area next season. The tour announced a four-year agreement to hold the Myrtle Beach Classic at the Dunes Golf and Beach Club.

The event will have a purse of $3.9 million and feature a full field on the same week one of the tour's designated tournaments is being played. Designated tournaments have elevated prize money of $20 million this season.

The PGA Tour previously held its 1973 Q-school championship at the Dunes Club. It also hosted the season-ending event on the PGA Tour Champions from 1994-99.
