A Day in the Life of Greg Norman

Ride. All. Day.
Pack your board shorts and buy a ticket to North Myrtle Beach, S.C. because Shark Wake Park is officially open!

Shark Wake Park
The newest addition to Great White Shark Enterprises, Shark Wake Park was born from Greg Norman Jr.’s passion for watersports and his entrepreneurial drive (it runs in the family!). We celebrated the Grand Opening event on June 17 at the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Mayor, followed by a pro exhibition, live music and an awesome day on the water.

“We are so excited to bring another Greg Norman business to North Myrtle Beach," Greg Norman Jr. said. “This cable park is for everyone. It’s not just for the professional wakeboard rider or water skier. It's the best way to get into watersports, and once you get into it, you’re going to be hooked.”

In addition to a full-size 5-tower and 2-tower cable system, the park is also home to the Shark Shack for food and refreshments and a fully-equipped pro shop featuring Ronix gear. Shark Wake Park is open seven days a week from 12-6 p.m.

Since the inaugural playing in 1976, a mission of the Memorial Tournament has been to honor and pay tribute to golf history’s great champions, as well as the men and women who have helped shape the game. Past Honorees for this prestigious accolade include Seve Ballesteros, Payne Stewart, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Sam Snead, and Byron Nelson among many others.

“I am deeply grateful to Jack and honored to have been selected by the Captains Club - a group of incredible men and women whom I have the greatest respect for – to receive this tribute. To have my name listed among the all-time greats of the game is a privilege,” said Greg Norman. “If I can give back to the game that has given so much to me, than that is a legacy that I can be proud of. I have always said that giving back is the way forward and there is no greater feeling than to be recognized for it.”

"I have known Greg since his earliest days playing golf in Australia and then in the U.S.,” Nicklaus added. “We became good friends early on, and I am happy to call Greg a friend decades later. So I am delighted that the Captains Club selected Greg as our 2017 Honoree. He's well-deserving and I look forward to welcoming Greg back to Muirfield Village Golf Club."
