The 51st Annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing

#PlaidNation, get ready to get your plaid on: the 51st Annual RBC Heritage presented by Boening is less than a month away! 135,000 people will flock to Hilton Head Island April 15 – 21 for this storied tournament whose past winners include World Golf Hall of Fame members such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Payne Stewart, and more.

It’s no secret that all of us here at Southern Way Catering enjoy our yearly pilgrimage down to Hilton Head Island for RBC Heritage Week. Last year, we took you behind the scenes of the 50th Annual RBC Heritage so you could get a glimpse of what goes into our week down in the low country. From the team we bring to where we source our ingredients, each and every detail is thoroughly planned and executed. Read more about last year’s event on our blog here: https://thesouthernway.com/a-week-at-the-rbc-heritage/

We would love to see you at this year’s tournament! Our team will once again be hosting guests at Doc’s BBQ at 15. Located just behind the 15th green on the Harbour Town Golf Links course, you’re close enough to the course that you feel like you’re part of the action happening. You’ll have exceptional views of the 15th green from the tiered seating available to you, and you’ll be able to cool off or escape the elements in our casual, climate-controlled lounge.

With a purchase of a Doc’s BBQ at 15 ticket, you will receive:

  • One Clubhouse Practice Round ticket (Monday—Wednesday)
  • One ticket with access to Doc’s at 15 for each competition round (Thursday—Sunday)
  • Access to a daily buffet lunch provided by Doc’s BBQ (Thursday—Sunday)
  • Access to southern cuisine provided by Southern Way Catering (Thursday—Sunday)
  • Anheuser-Busch beer, Clos du Bois Wine, and Coca-Cola beverages. Spirits will be available for purchase.
