Fripp Island Golf & Beach Resort

Fripp Island Golf & Beach Resort offers spectacular settings, exceptional accommodations, a variety of amenities and top notch catering services to meet every need, from an intimate gathering to a lavish event.

      Picture a beautiful new bride, laughing with delight as she drives a golf cart around a spectacularly scenic island, her proud groom in the seat next to her. Behind them are several other carts filled with their joyous family and friends.

Now imagine a low country boil by the pool framed by a glorious sunset. People of all ages reminisce, laugh and hug at the long-awaited family reunion. Maybe the scene is dozens of co-workers celebrating the holidays at their boss’ home, enjoying delicious food and toasting to a successful year.

      According to Alissa Murrie, Marketing Director at the resort, Fripp Island is the perfect destination for all types of events. “In many cases, we have families where generations have spent summers playing on the beach, watching the deer and exploring the island, “ she said. “To then choose to have their special event here, and share this place with friends and family who are experiencing it for the first time, is magical.”

      A 2016 pick in The Knot’s best of Weddings, Fripp resort boasts many amenities throughout their 3,500 acres. In additional to three and a half miles of beach, guest can enjoy golf, tennis, boating, nature programs and even cruising around the island in four-seater golf carts.

      “What’s nice about having an event here is that everyone is at one resort, “ said Kathy Kluttz, Director of Sales and Catering. “At a typical wedding, family and friends might be staying at various hotels and might not have many chances to see each other. At Fripp Island Resort, however, guests are surrounded by their friends and family from the moment they arrive and they are able to relax and enjoy activities together throughout their stay.”

Fripp Island’s meeting spaces are designed for comfort and pleasure. Whether you’re planning a luncheon for 25 or a party for hundreds of guests, a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces are available at the resort. Experienced staff is also able to recommend local vendors and help coordinate setup of the event. Of course, one of the most important components of any successful event is the food. Guests have long raved about the resort’s scrumptious food, which is provided by Allie Award Winning Atlanta food service management company Proof of the Pudding and directed at Fripp by Executive Chef Scott Barham-Morgan.

     In an effort to offer their catering to an even broader group, Fripp Island Resort offers off-site catering. According to Kathy, they offer an array of catering options to individuals, groups and businesses in the Beaufort area. “While we certainly still welcome groups to the resort, we’re very excited to to be able to offer our catering for off-island events such as holiday parties and corporate events.”
