Top Things to Do on Fripp Island in December 

Enjoy the Great Outdoors 

With uncrowded shorelines and beautiful weather, winter is one of the best times for a Fripp Island vacation. Many of our first-time guests ask us if you can swim in Fripp Island in December. The average temperatures range from the low 40s to mid-60s during this time of year, which is a bit too chilly for swimming. However, the weather is perfect for strolling the shoreline, golfing, fishing, or simply enjoying the sunshine! 

Celebrate The Season with Our Annual Festive Events  

Of course, you can always experience holiday cheer at Fripp’s festive celebrations. Whether you’d like to venture through a holiday wonderland of twinkling lights with the kids or try your skills at a Christmas-themed golf tournament, there’s an event for you. 

  • 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. 
  • 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.
