River Club Golf Course

  • Overall: - 8.78

River Club opened in 1985 to rave reviews and was awarded 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “2006 Places to Play.”    River Club’s brilliant layout gives golfers an unforgettable experience.  The updated Champion Bermuda greens offer a spectacular but fair challenge.

River Club’s 14th and 18th hole are both featured in “The 100 Greatest Holes Along the Grand Strand.”  The 14th is a difficult island par three with an undulating green.  The signature hole is the par five 18th.  It is the ultimate risk vs. reward hole where carrying the water with consecutive shots gives the golfer a great chance at eagle.

  • Timothy - 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. - 01/26/2017 - 9

  • Paul (uk) - 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. - 09/02/2016 - 9

  • Ted - Course is in outstanding shape from Tees to Green. Greens putted true & rather quick. Staff is very accommodating. Pace of play was 4hrs. The 18th hole is great finishing hole. Highly recommend playing here - 08/19/2016 - 10

  • D C - Great course. Everything is out in front of you . Quality greens and fairways . Would play it again. - 07/23/2016 - 9

  • Cassidy - 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. - 07/08/2016 - 10
