Description

About River Club

This Tom Jackson signature course is one of the premier plantation courses on the Grand Strand and a favorite among returning golfers. True to its name, River Club features water on 15 of 18 holes, and over 100 sand traps and bunkers. Long hitters have some room off the tee, but approach shots need to be true. Two of the 18 holes at the semi-private River Club are featured among “The 100 Greatest Holes Along the Grand Strand.” Holes 14 and 18 have proven to be two of the most challenging courses in the Myrtle Beach area. The dramatic par-5, 18th is unquestionably one of the finest finishing holes on the Grand Strand, offering risk and reward to those who can carry the water twice for a possible chance at eagle. A great course for all skill levels.

"First time here, and good reviews got us here. However, course exceeded our expectations - stunning, water on most holes, well maintained, and a pleasure to play. It will be on our future list for sure. Plus it was significantly less expensive than Caledonia and True Blue, where are nearby and were initially targeted to play. Do yourself a favor and play The River Club. Heavy overnight rains made course wet so ball did not carry and zero-run, so played longer."

"Sraff was very courteous and informative! Greens protect the approaches to most greens making it difficult for high handicappers!"

"If you want to play a course that is in really great shape right now this is the place. Greens are super. Good speed , smooth if you miss it is because of a read or your just a bad putter. Fairways plush but tight and the rough is really a penalty. The ball really drops down into the rough. Don't miss the fairway or you will pay the price. Staff was good speed of play in the afternoon was really quick. $49 is a deal."

"We have played this course numerous times. The grass is really healthy, meaning there is a lot and it is thick. Easier said than done but don't miss the fairway. The rough is a one stroke penalty in many cases. Greens were rolling with a nice speed and down hill is a lot quicker. Unfortunately we had thunderstorms with lightening. Why can't these golf courses control the weather:) What a great value."

"Beautiful course, but... Aerated greens, burnt fringe played havoc with my short game. Far too many greens with burnt fringe. Sand traps were plentiful but they were hard from being tended while wet, and not enough sand to get under the ball when you had a lie. Biggest shocker: they have a sign stating NO PERSONAL COOLERS and then I didn't see a snack cart on the course at all. Not sorry I broke that rule. Probably beautiful in Spring and Fall, but brutal on this particularly hot day in June. "

"Really nice course in great conditions with fast greens. You will need to have a great second shot to shoot low here. Only complaint they need to have more staff on hand in the kitchen food was great. "

"Great deal on a great track. Private club feel on a public course with a challenging layout. Would put this course up against Heritage any day. Played in late December, thank you el Nino, and carts were allowed off path. Can't say enough about the experience, definitely one of the better courses on the island. Will be back next year..."
