The summertime is a great time at River Oaks Golf Plantation! Locals and vacationers alike will find great rates and fun events all summer long. From Memorial Day weekend right up to Labor Day there are fun outings and charity golf tournaments along with weekly shootouts and leagues. The management and staff at River Oaks really knows how to have a good time in the heat of the summer!
Speaking of the management and staff, PGA Head Professional Scott Taylor and his crew work very hard to make sure that River Oaks is a great place to golf and hang out in the summer months. The addition of the roof over the back patio last spring has been well received. Now when golfers are done with their round they can sit out back in the shade and enjoy some food and cold beverage as they relax and reflect on their round. The view is great! Just across the pond from the back porch is the 14th green. Players can watch their fellow golfers play this challenging little par 4 in the comfortable seats and relaxing atmosphere.
Of course the big attraction for the summer is the Thursday Scramble. Every Thursday all summer long golfers can play in a 9 hole scramble that tees of at 5:30. This awesome event sells out almost every week! 4 person scramble format including food and drinks for everyone as well as raffle tickets and door prizes.
“It really has become one of our most popular events here at River Oaks” said Patrick DeWildt, assistant professional. “The locals look forward to it every week and we also get vacationers that stumble upon it while in town and they love it as well!”
The calendar is full all summer long with other events in addition to the Thursday Scramble. There are leagues for both men and women. All are welcome to inquire and join if they can. There are also several charity golf outings hosted at River Oaks. Golfing for Special Needs, Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand and NBA Star Ramon Session outing are just a few of the events on the calendar this summer. Check with the golf shop for a full list of upcoming charity events.
