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.

Avoid unless you enjoy playing slow

Painfully slow; 3hr35min front nine; played behind a fivesome; very bumpy outside fairways so go slow in your gas powered (read noisy) golf cart; friendly staff cannot make up for totally average conditions at best and overcrowded course.

COURSE WAS IN BEST SHAPE I'VE SEEN IT IN !!!! GREENS HAVE CLEARED UP ALMOST ALL OF THE ROUGH PATCHES THEY ONCE HAD ARE NOW SMOOTHED OUT. GREENS ROLLED SWIFT & TRUE. ALSO FIXED UP THE CART PATHS ON THE BEAR 9 WHICH MADE FOR AN ENJOYABLE SMOOTH RIDE. THE REST OF THE COURSE WAS GREEN & LUSH. LOVE THIS LAYOUT GREAT TO SEE THE CONDITIONS ARE NOW LETTING THE COURSES POTENTIAL SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH. :)

This is a fun course to play to get your vacation started. Not super tough but at the same time not a pushover. I can tell the grounds crew have been putting in a lot of hard work to get the greens back in shape. Had heard they struggled for a while but they were in very nice shape today! Will definitely play again

Rained out. I had to put in a fake score because the data base doesn't understand that rain sometimes prevents people from playing.

Review #4275

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.
