How to Experience the Most Memorable Fripp Island Christmas Season 

Watch Santa Claus Arrive in Style 

Join us at The Beach Club to kick off your Fripp Island Christmas Celebration! This year’s event offers a variety of socially distanced and family-friendly activities that include a fun photo-op with Santa, holiday tunes, a special reading, and a movie screening of The Polar Express.  

Christmas Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt  

Of course, it’s not Christmas on Fripp Island without our beloved Christmas Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt! The scavenger hunt begins at The Creekhouse. Here, you’ll receive a list of clues, and then you’ll have one hour to get through as many clues as possible.  

Island Insider Tip: You must bring your own golf cart and camera to participate.  

Annual Santa Scramble  

For some unique Christmas-themed fun, join us at the Ocean Creek Golf Course for the Annual Santa Scramble! The scramble follows a four-person gross powerball format on an executive-style course setup. To add more festive fun, we encourage all participants and attendees to wear their favorite ugly Christmas sweater! For just a $15 entry fee, you’ll get drinks, beer, coffee, donuts, and prizes. The best part? The tournament’s proceeds are used to make a donation to a charitable organization.  

Lounge on our Sandy Beaches

From end to end, you’ll find the best of the Lowcountry anywhere the sand meets the sea. Plus, the gleaming waters of the shoreline are incredibly mesmerizing around the holiday season.
