Summer golf in Myrtle Beach is all about fun! River Oaks is no exception. In fact, we feel that it is the perfect place to have some summertime fun on the golf course. River Oaks host so many events in the summer months that it is always a good idea to check their calendar of events before making a tee time. There may be an event going on that golfers can join or take advantage of that will add to their golfing experience. The fact that the course is located in the heart of the Grand Strand makes it an easy and accessible place to play.
PGA Head Professional, Scott Taylor and his staff feel that River Oaks is the perfect setting to host any kind of golf event. They do especially enjoy hosting charity tournaments. With the golf course located just over the intracoastal waterway, the 27-hole layout makes the course a perfect setting for events. The addition of the newly covered back patio area gives the facility one more amenity to offer event organizers. Now the course is ready to handle pre and post round activities day or night and rain or shine. It really has become a highlight of the clubhouse area.
The summer calendar is simply packed with charity tournaments raising money for everything from churches to children’s charities including the annual Boys & Girls Club event. The Myrtle Beach Fire Department holds a charity golf tournament at River Oaks. Myrtle Beach native and NBA star Ramon Sessions holds his annual charity fundraiser outing at the course! As you can see there is a wide variety of fundraising event happening at River Oaks all summer long.
Of course we would be remiss if we did not mention the most popular event of the summer at River Oaks. The weekly “Thursday Night Shootout” has become a favorite of locals and vacationers alike. This nine hole 4 person scramble starts in May and runs through September. Teams made up of golfers of all ages and ability levels show up and tee it up at 5pm with food and drinks included afterwards on the back deck. There are prizes with winner each and every week. The Shootout really has become a highlight of the summer activity at River Oaks. Anyone can play but golfers better sign up early in the week because the field fills up quick every week.
