On Thursday February 22, 2018 Rivers Edge hosted the Myrtle Beach Passport Tournament. The format for this event was a 2-Person best ball where each team member played their own ball and the lowest score of the two team members was recorded as the score for that hole.The field was sold out with 126 participants broken down into five divisions: Handicap, Men’s, Senior Men’s, Mixed & Women’s Divisions. Men 64 and under played from our white tees, Men 65 and over played from our green tees and Women played from the blue tees. We couldn’t have ordered a more perfect day with sunny skies and temps in the mid 70’s, a real treat for February!
Complimenting the beautiful day was a healthy awards ceremony with the golf course issuing over $2000.00 in prize money! The prize breakdown for the Handicap, Men, Senior Men and Mixed Divisions were as follows;
- 1st Place = $75 per player ($150 team)
- 2nd Place = $50 per player ($100 team)
- 3rd Place = $40 per player ($80 team)
- 4th Place = $25 per player ($50 team)
In the Women’s Division scoring was a little less complicated as our only ladies team of Mo Spada and Lisa Dowling secured 1st Place simply by completing all 18 holes! Way to go LADIES we certainly thank you for your support.

The proverbial icing on the cake came from our Double Eagle Grille, as they served up a wonderful spread for all participants as we scored the tournament and prepared for the awards ceremony. The meal was a Beef & Chicken Taco Bar with fixings galore, mexi-rice, mexi-corn and our specialty desserts!
Many many thanks from the Rivers Edge staff for your support! We hope you enjoyed the day as it was a pleasure serving you! We look forward to seeing you next time at the Edge.
