If you have not had the chance to play in the Thursday Night Shootout at River Oaks Golf Plantation you are missing out on a great time with great people at a great golf course. On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we head to River Oaks to see the festivities and take in the fun. Thursday nights have become must play at River Oaks in the summer time. Golf, food, drinks and prizes makes for a winning combination and has golfers going back to play week after week.
PGA Head Professional Scott Taylor has really created something special that locals and vacationers alike have really come to love and look forward to every week.during the summer season in Myrtle Beach. The event routinely fills up completely with over 170 players almost every time. The word is out for sure. Each four-person team is treated like members while they are at the course, receiving tremendously friendly customer service from the minute they step on the course to the minute dinner is over after the round and they head to their cars.
“We look forward to Thursday evenings at River Oaks all summer” said Phil Carey, a local golfer. “Our boys enjoy the fun and the competition. The atmosphere is second to none!”
That seems to be the sentiment of most of the local golfers that play multiple weeks. And why wouldn’t they. For less than $30 each golfer gets to participate in the four-man scramble, plus get a couple drink tickets, plus get food each week, plus getting a shot at prizes for winning and for closest to the pin and long drive contest each week. It is really a no=brainer for anyone that likes to have fun playing golf with friends. That is what has turned River Oaks into the place to be on Thursday evenings.
The new awning on the patio behind the clubhouse has added to the attraction and the fun for sure. Now golfers have some shade from the hot sun or protection from any “liquid sunshine” that might come along. This new feature certainly adds to the post-golf festivities for sure. It allows for the post golf merriment to linger on as long as Scott and the crew will allow it to go!
