CHARLESTON, SC - Inspired by Germany's Oktoberfest, the Charleston RiverDogs' 8th Annual Charity Golf Tournament will have a similar flavor as the club introduces its Golftoberfest theme.
Golfers and have-funners will head to the links on Tuesday, May 7, at Wild Dunes Resort for an 11 am shotgun start. The event is once again presented by Parks Auto Parts and benefits the Medical University of South Carolina's Storm Eye Institute.
The four-man Captain's Choice format is not a typical golf outing as the Golftoberfest-themed tournament will be a celebration that even RiverDogs Director of Fun Bill Murray won't want to miss.
"Who isn't a fan of fun?" asked Events Director Melissa Azevedo. "This tournament not only offers a day-full of light-hearted entertainment at a beautiful golf course, it also provides an afternoon of networking while raising funds to help fight blindness."
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places, and in typical RiverDogs fashion, there will also be prizes given for best cart decor, best costume and best golf head cover.
The $500 per foursome entry fee includes green and cart fees, range balls, an exclusive golfer gift and goodie bag, unlimited beverages, awards ceremony and dinner courtesy of Rollin' South.
Hole sponsorships are also available for $350. Each hole will be named after an authentic Oktoberfest Beer Tent, and each hole will feature a German-themed contest that includes a yodeling competition, keg rolling, a German Chocolate Cake Eating Contest and pretzel-making lessons, to name a few.
