The Oyster Roast
The 2021 annual oyster roast was moved to November 27th due to Covid. We will still be hosting the Spring oyster roast on March 5th, 2022 at Live Oaks Park in Port Royal, South Carolina. In its 15th year, the Oyster Roast consistently has over 3500 in attendance. Featuring local Beaufort oysters, local bands, premium micro-brews, a full day children's program, live auctions, and local vendors offering varied fairs, there is no other event like it in Beaufort. And don't forget the world class entertainment offered. The bands for November and March have yet to be confirmed.
Thank you for joining us! It is a fun filled day for the whole family and we look forward to seeing you there!
Clubs for Kids
The 6th Annual "Clubs for Kids" event for 2021 will be the kick off of our Year Long Junior Golf Program . Youths ages 5-12 and a parent or legal guardian, enjoyed a day of instruction and exhibition by local pros.
Please come out and support Beaufort area junior golf. Learning the game is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child.
The Golf Tournament
The annual Spring tournament is the premiere golf event in South Carolina and is played on the weekend following Mothers Day at Fripp Island, South Carolina. Celebrating its 45th year, The Beaufort Charities Invitational is the oldest golf tournament of its kind in South Carolina and the 2nd oldest in the nation. Since our inaugural event in 1976, we have raised over $1.5M in NET proceeds for our local need organizations with 100% of the monies staying in Northern Beaufort County.
Our goal each and every year is to improve our event for the enjoyment of the participants, to offer value to our Sponsors, and to support our immediate community. To say that we are proud to be the oldest non-profit golf tournament in the state of South Carolina is an understatement. Our longevity and continued annual success is a testament to our participants. Our players and their families love our event. They enjoy the golf, the beach and their time together. In addition, we routinely hear from our players that they love the fact we are a "First class golf tournament." The players relish the opportunity to feel the same nerves on the 1st tee and coming down the stretch that they see the PGA Tour Professionals endure weekly on TV.
Like the PGA Tour, our golf events longevity has afforded us the opportunity to see a multi-generation of familial participants. In 2021, we had 44 teams of fathers, sons, brothers, and relatives competing in our event.
On behalf of our Board of Directors and Committee Members, thank you for your continued support of The Beaufort Charities. There is no other organization like it in Beaufort County and it would not be possible without your participation and generous annual sponsorships.
A special thanks to ALL our Sponsors who have already committed to supporting The Beaufort Charities in 2022. Please Visit our Sponsor Pages.
