Description

About River Oaks Golf Plantation

River Oaks Golf Plantation is located centrally in Myrtle Beach along more than 800 acres on the Intracoastal Waterway. Gene Hamm and Tom Jackson played integral roles in the design of each of the 27 holes on the course located on a former nature preserve. The Bear and Fox course was listed among Golf Digest's Best Places to Play in 2008-2009. The three nine-hole courses offer recently renovated Champion Ultradwarf greens.

"Great experience. I have not played the course in years and was very happy with the condition staff. Greens rolled true and while not fast, did give the opportunity to drop a long putt. Fairways were in fantastic shape as well. I'd put this back on the list of courses to play"

"We find that River Oaks offers you great value for the money. Great staff and pace of play usually around 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Love that they have 27 holes. Our GPS works really well there. Good snack bar and friendly atmosphere. When we are in Myrtle which is 5 months out of the year, we play River Oaks one to two times a week besides other courses. "

"Day was okay and the course is in good shape. There is obviously some work to do,. We would go back. We were upset that the starter sent a threesome out in front of us at the turn. They turned out to be very slow and rude. They fell almost two holes behind the group in front of them. There were no Rangers around to get them moving."

"Cosmetic improvements made of late may have raised their overall rating a tad, but the simple fact remains that this is a low-end option at best. Best for high handicappers looking for a low greens fee. To all others: many, many better options abound."
