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.

"Course is in excellent shape. Greens were a little shaggy but rolled nice. The staff at this facility is some of the nicest on The Grand Strand. One of the best tracks on the beach."

"A great layout and wonderful staff. We were able to run the fairways after some very heavy rains two days earlier. Greens aren't exceptionally fast but in good shape. The staff running the place is the best in area, friendly and helpful. The only downside was putting on wet greens, they hadn't whipped the greens on the back side and that is where we started. I find this quit unusual and most likely an oversight with the greens keepers attending to the front nine. Still an overall great day, we will return."

"Not the most difficult course we played on this trip. However, there is a great variety of holes in very scenic surroundings so well worth playing. Also, the course was in very good condition and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating."

"All the staff were friendly. Snack bar had the typical food you can get at a golf course. Course is in very nice shape. Some damp spots but not bad seeing as rain the past two nights. Greens roll true and at a good speed for the average golfer. Have a nice practice area for chipping and putting, but no range for longer clubs. Will play again if we stay in the area."

"Course in good condition. Painted greens seemed to affect the putting a bit. Other golfers ahead of us weren't raking traps. Very frustrating landing in someone's footprint or divot. Enjoy the layout and people who work here, one of our go to courses."

"Great course with friendly staff. Just a couple of greens were not in good shape but most were very playable. Cart path only on a couple of holes which was surprising because we've had lots of heavy rain lately. It's a must play course for visitors."

"Tees, fairways, and greens all in great condition. Greens rolled true and fast. Generous landing areas off the tee if you don't get too aggresive. Lots of big bunkers in the landing areas and around the greens. Bunkers had good sand and were well maintained. Bag drop, Pro shop, and Starter were all so nice to us. Got out about 30 minutes ahead of our tee time, and played in 4 hours. Awesome day."

"We were the first out on the front at 9:00 and had a great time. The staff was very nice and friendly to deal with. If your hitting the ball in play it's not that difficult but if your straying the water Gods will enjoy the sacrifice. The fairways were a bit wet and a little thin but overall playable. Tees and greens were in good shape. We play it often and will return."
