Back on April 20th Rivers Edge was proud to host the MIDEASTERN 3A/4A Golf Match. West Brunswick High School was the “host school” for the event. Other schools participating in the invitational events were New Hanover High School, Laney High, Topsail, South Brunswick, Hoggard High and Ashley. It was a great day of golf for all the players from all the schools. A good time was had by all as the kids really enjoyed the experience playing Rivers Edge. Some of the golfers had played here before but for most it was their first experience at our facility.
It was a tough day of competition as some of the best junior golfers in the area were really grinding it out for their respective schools. In the end, the New Hanover Wildcats were the big winners with a team score of 303 on the day. E.A. Laney Buccaneers (326) squeezed in to the 2nd spot just 4 strokes ahead of the host West Brunswick Trojans (330). See the full score list below:
- N. Hanover 303
- Laney 326
- W. Brunswick 330
- Topsail 333
- S. Brunswick 338
- Hoggard 355
- Ashley 384
On May 3rd it was the middle school players turn to take on our Arnold Palmer designed course in a 9 hole event. They really had a blast! There was a lot of talent and good looking golf swings in these youngsters from 5 area schools that included Shallotte Middle, South Brunswick Middle School, Cedar Grove Middle School, Leland Middle School, and Wacammaw Middle School. Once again the players and teams battled hard against each other and the golf course and in the end South Brunswick Middle came out victorious!

The management and staff at Rivers Edge Golf Club want to thank all the schools and volunteers involved in helping us host these two great golf events. There is nothing better than seeing the future of golf compete right in front of our eyes. We also want to thank the parents and families that were in attendance. We are very happy to help the area schools in promoting the game of golf that we love so much. Youth golf is the future and we are happy to be involved at this level of the game.
