Golden Isles Shag Club Party Calendar

The entertainment committee of the club has moved into high gear and set up this years 2017 calendar of club parties.

Many shag clubs dance in hotels and ballrooms, at GISC we have a classic beach bar with Ziggy's on St Simons Island; but we go out door for our Low Country Boil and Oyster Roast at Bill & Doinita's. We shag with a permanent outside dance floor & gazebo, the fine aroma of BBQ, Pulled Pork, Shrimp, Burgers and Fixin's. Make sure to note the date for these Spring and Fall GISC parties - even for a night its worth the trip. Bring a Camper / RV we also have hookups right at the party!!!

Shag-A-Ganza is 27 this year ~ which is just like a Silver Wedding Plus Plus when you have been around as a club as long as we have. The Golden Isles of Georgia are a special place, Jekyll Island where we hold our event is a Georgia State Park Authority.

At the turn of the 20th century it was to be owned by the Jekyll Island Club millionaires who controlled over 1/6th of global GDP. The U.S. Federal Reserve was formulated on the island in 1907, as well as the very first transcontinental phone call between the East and West Coasts of the U.S. in 1915. The island has 5500 acres and nearly 4,000 are totally protected from development. Take an extra day with us this year and when you get the "sand between you toes" you will always come back again to Jekyll!
