Ideas for a Golf Course arose when Dr. and Mrs. S.S. Royster announced the donation of approximately 50 acres of land to the City of Shelby for a new Municipal Park on April 26th, 1948. This land was developed and a nine hole course was dedicated as the Royster Memorial Golf Course as part of the Shelby Parks and Recreation Department.
This Golf Course is a unique pleasure to play because Shelby being a piedmont flat lands area, the course is filled with mountainous holes. Royster Memorial Golf Course offers many different programs for local patrons such as golf tournaments every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and hosts the Annual Friends Of The Parks Golf Tournament, Royster Memorial Club Championship, City of Shelby Employee Golf Tournament and Foothill's Merry-Go-Round Festival Tournaments annually. In 2013 the 2-Man "Ryder Cup" 27-hole tournament was added. The course is open 364 days a year, closed Christmas day only.
