River Club Golf Course
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.

MichaelDate Played: 11/30/2019
River club was exactly how I remembered it, we enjoyed the round of golf. The employees from the start to finish (bag drop, and front desk , along with the starter, and cart service on the course) was excellent. This kind of service is what brings golfers back.

ChaunceDate Played: 07/03/2019
Nice layout and great shape tee to green. Greens roll true and speed is good for all levels of players. Ball will sit down in Bermuda when you miss the fairway so follow errant shots. Verticut around outer band of greens will add extra challenge to chipping. Friendly staff. I always enjoy playing this course.

DaveDate Played: 10/13/2018
Been coming to The Grand Strand for 13+ years for an annual buddies golf trip, and we enjoyed The River Club. The course is in very good condition, and the layout really stands out among other courses in the area. The course is challenging, but very fair, and we had a lot of fun! You'll use close to every club in your bag. There is no driving range, so hitting into a net was a disappointing warm up. The staff were kind, but it seemed like they needed a few more people for a very busy day. We still find the tee times too close together, which leads to a lot of waiting, but we played in the busy season, so we were disappointed but not surprised. Even with all that, we said this one goes on the "play it again list" and recommend that you give it try.
MelanieDate Played: 09/07/2018

TedDate Played: 02/20/2017
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.
TimothyDate Played: 01/26/2017
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.
PaulDate Played: 09/02/2016
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.
TedDate Played: 08/19/2016
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
CassidyDate Played: 07/08/2016
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.
MikeDate Played: 03/09/2016
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.
TimothyDate Played: 02/18/2016
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.
TonyDate Played: 10/27/2015
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.
PeteDate Played: 07/08/2015
The price was right for an afternoon round. The course was beat up from a bad winter and a lot of play. All around a good day on the course.

One of my favorite courses. Carts on paths due to large amount of rain the night before. Starter went out of his way to let my cart on fairways on back nine due to my recent knee replacement. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Very nice golf course. This is a dependable golf facility that will garantee a good time. It is an enjoyable layout. The condition is normally good to excellant. We played in less than 4 and 1/2 hours on a day when the weather was great for golf. The staff is very friendly and is trained well to help your visit here. They've added an on course GPS system that was helpful with yardages. As long as you remembered to push the screen to advance to the next hole, the system remained current with your location on the golf course. I've played here before and will play here again. Good layout for the advanced to the beginner golfer as well........try it, you'll like it..!

TimDate Played: 09/23/2013
I ranked the starter as Poor because of his actions toward our group at the turn. I specifically look at my cell phone to determine the time we tee off as I am very aware of slow play. It was 9:10am. At exactly 11:24am, we were in the cart heading toward ##10. The starter accused us of slow play and I explained to him that our first tee shot on ##1 was at 9:10am and that we were within the 2hrs 15 min allotted on the scorecard. He was very rude and said that's not what he had on his sheet, but we spoke to him at the practice green, not at the tee. If they are going to make accusations, then the facts need to be correct. And, rudeness that he displayed will not be good for people returning to your course. The course was very nice, but I would hesitate going back because of this experience.
PhilDate Played: 09/09/2013

The course was billed as advantageous to longer hitters. While this is true of a couple holes like #18, the premium is put on accuracy off the tee. Many holes include doglegs or shortened fairways with water. The greens are nice and subtly difficult. Overall, it's a nice place to play for the average golfer. Lower handicapped players might be looking for a bigger challenge.

The course was fine, just didn't like the fact that the sprinklers came on at the end of the round. My wife booked the round as a surprise for me and her stepfather. She booked us a late tee time and upon arrival at the course I was notified that at 7:30 the sprinklers come on. We tried to play as fast as we can but were stuck behind a 5-some for 4 or 5 holes (4-9 or 5-9). One club staff member came by and asked us how it was going. We told him about being held up but we were still stuck behind the group for a couple holes (they left after the 9th hole). So we were caught in the sprinklers starting on the 14th hole. I've never played a course that allowed a 5-some or would allow a group that was playing slow to hold up another group. Also I'm not sure why you allow a late tee time if the round could not be completed prior to sprinklers turning on (cart stated expected play time 4 and half hours, tee time 4:56 PM, and sprinklers at 7:30). Course was as well kept for the time of the year it is. Most courses here in KC have been brown for months now. Great course layout and hole placement.

ZachDate Played: 07/31/2012
Just played this course with my wife yesterday. It was in great condition. Staying at our condo at Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort. I just saw the comment about the greens and not sure what was wrong with them unless it was the light sanding done because of the grooming. I play in the area a lot and a lot of the courses have gone to this new grass and they all do this. They rolled great. Fortunately for us the course wasn't busy and we played in just over 3 hours. Keep up the good job. Thanks.

Course was very enjoyable and in great shape for the summer. Also, very playable with a good combination of tough holes and risk/reward holes. Staff came by with ice cold water for our water bottles. Never experienced this in 24 years of golf. Very cool!
JerryDate Played: 07/27/2012
Easy to get on the course (didn't have any hassles at the desk or the starter), beautiful and challenging course. Greens a little bumpy from maintenance but really not a problem. I'm used to bent grass. Played from the black tees and was challenged to hit a precise drive on every hole and loved it. Fairways were perfect. Even the bunkers were trimmed to perfection.

One of the nicest courses in the Pawleys Island area. Challenging layout and very nice greens, fun to play. Would have liked to know they were starting an outing right in front of us. We were 45 minutes late teeing off and over 6 hours to play, would have re-scheduled the round.

I didn't know it was part of Litchfield.
MichaelDate Played: 03/25/2012
The course was in great shape and the pro shop staff was more accommodating than any we've experienced.
BobDate Played: 03/21/2012
The course was in great shape. Played it for the first time 3/5/12. Others in my group had played it before some 10 years back and were apprehensive about playing it now. After the round everyone agreed that is was worth the play and to add it to a list of will play again down the road.
JoshDate Played: 03/20/2012
Very soft greens but tight. Roll quickly. Great scenery. There's a lot of water, bunkers, and hazards in play on almost every hole. Beautiful course and layout. Staff was alright. Highly recommend!
RobinDate Played: 03/03/2012
We just played this course and loved it. Even though there is water on many holes we didn't lose many balls even though we are relatively new at golf. It had lots of options to make it challenging enough for good players and doable for newbies. The fairways, greens, and tees were gorgeous. I would play here again and again.
KenDate Played: 02/29/2012
Staff was wonderful. They knew how to make sure you were welcome. Tee boxes, fairways, sand traps were 4.5 our of 5. The greens had some rough spots. Of the 90% without rough spots, they rolled true. The course winds through homes bordering the course (or the homes wind around the course?) which can be distracting at times. The group scored the course 3.5 out of 5.
DanDate Played: 02/25/2012
Very good course.

Nice experience - good course.
LarryDate Played: 01/15/2012
All was OK.
TimothyDate Played: 01/13/2012
We played 1/12/12 in very windy cool conditions. The new greens were nice but slow because of all the rain the day before. Staff was very helpful and friendly and we got around in under 4 hours despite the tough winds. It's a must-play if you like a challenge.

The course was in excellent shape for being late in the year. The greens were beautiful. Overall it was one of the nicest courses I have played at.
MichelDate Played: 10/26/2011
The course that I have enjoyed the most.
BillyDate Played: 10/25/2011
The course was in great condition and the people were very courteous and helpful; as always. I have played this every time I have visited MB. I played it twice this time; once through my reservation and once with a friend who lives there.
RobertDate Played: 10/13/2011
Very interesting back nine, highlighted by the 18th.
AdamDate Played: 10/13/2011
Excellent condition. Starter's introduction to the course was very helpful as we had not played there before. Several unique factors about the course: amount of water in play, doglegs were quite challenging. Greens were fast all morning and presented a great challenge. Will definitely play there again when I return in the future.
JamesDate Played: 10/11/2011
Very nice course. Bunkers made the course challenging and a lot of fun.
MichaelDate Played: 09/27/2011
Finally, after 3 yrs. of being rained out you guys got us through all 18. Thank you.
MikeDate Played: 09/25/2011
I would like to have known that the address to the course that I got online was not the correct one. The directions took you nowhere near the course.
MichaelDate Played: 09/22/2011
Beautiful course ... Great conditions, great people ...
JoshDate Played: 09/17/2011
I have played this course three times since it reopened with new greens. These new types of bermuda grasses are really great. They are so good how would you even know they are only a few months old. This change has really made this course one of the best on the Pawleys Island area. Great job guys.
AlainDate Played: 09/16/2011
Nothing special ...
R.J.Date Played: 09/13/2011
Everything and everyone were great - all in foursome enjoyed it, stayed in a condo on the course (it was great), prices were great. Will recommend course to all. Every hole was a challenge and unique. Would have loved to play it again.
DaveDate Played: 09/11/2011
River Club was very nice. I liked that it was a very challenging course. Greens were slow in the morning but later in the day they got quick. Favourite holes were 14 (par 3 island), and 18. I believe these were the signature holes. Staff was very, very friendly and helpful. When I left my 2 clubs at the previous hole's green, he went and got it for me.
FranDate Played: 06/13/2011
It was a nice setting and the people were very friendly and helpful.

Very enjoyable; great layout!
DanDate Played: 06/01/2011
Fast greens and challenging holes.
FaronDate Played: 05/18/2011
Nice layout, The greens were in excellent shape. The number 18 hole is a great finishing hole and with a drive of about 225 from the middle tees you turn a par 5 into a long, manageable par 4. The course marshals are friendly and courteous and extremely helpful. The staff in the pro shop was the most friendly I encountered during my trip. There are nicer courses in the area but none as friendly. I would recommend this course to my friends.
BernardDate Played: 05/18/2011
Nice course, plays well for my game. I like all of the water holes.
MaureenDate Played: 05/17/2011
Fun day, the course was easy to navigate.
TobinDate Played: 05/10/2011
The fact that they have no driving range, just a net, was disappointing. Other than that, the layout is good and would be a fun course to play without the wind.
ChrisDate Played: 04/26/2011
I liked the amount of water on the course; it reminded me of the courses I played in Florida.
RenatoDate Played: 04/26/2011
We played this on our first day and my wife loved the course as it is easier for her as a starting player to play. It is simple and short enough for a lady player but can be challenging for a male if we hit from the back tees.
MauryDate Played: 04/24/2011
Always one of our favorites.
RayDate Played: 04/22/2011
An excellent and very challenging golf course.

Great time, great folks. Will return.
AnthonyDate Played: 04/12/2011
The course itself was in excellent shape and the greens were some of the best in Myrtle Beach at the time. The starter was absolutely great and a huge help being the first time I played there. Unfortunately the pro shop clerk was extremely rude and irritable with me and my group basically because we were young guys playing, but meanwhile we are all serious golfers one of us had played in Nationwide events and I am a teaching pro so I found it very unprofessional to treat us the way he did.
DavidDate Played: 04/04/2011
Very nice course even with all the sand and water. I guess that's what makes the course so nice.
PhilDate Played: 04/04/2011
Nice course. Well conditioned. Some houses in play; overall would rate six out of ten. Would not play again.
TomDate Played: 03/31/2011
River Club continues to be a favorite of our group courses. A little disturbed about being rushed by the ranger when my group knows golf etiquette and we were no problem to the few golfers that were playing that day!
JoeDate Played: 03/30/2011
Overall good experience.
DanDate Played: 03/26/2011

MarkDate Played: 01/30/2011
Well-groomed course with superior greens. Relatively easy, wide-open course. I much preferred the challenging layout of Heritage Club.
JamesDate Played: 12/15/2010
Had a wonderful time here.
GeneDate Played: 12/08/2010
I love hole #9 and #18.
MikeDate Played: 11/23/2010
I found that there were may leaves on the fairways and the greens were just OK. Lots of ball marks.
JimDate Played: 11/21/2010
The course was in great shape, I was glad I had my GPS to help me on the distances and to know about the hazards. It would be a good idea to buy the course guide.
MikeDate Played: 11/14/2010
Our group was overall impressed with this course, and plans on playing it 2x in our spring outing.
JimDate Played: 10/19/2010
Played the course Sunday and the greens were really good. Someone said that the bentgrass greens were beat up from the summer. If they were beat up they have recovered. My only issue is that other golfers don't fix ball marks. I watched a group in front of us and I never saw anyone bend over to repair a ball mark the few times I was looking at them and thinking about ball marks.
TommyDate Played: 10/15/2010
Very nice course. Liked the layout and the accommodations. The only negative is that the greens are very soft and there were a lot of ball marks (repaired and not repaired) which made putting difficult. Mosquitoes early in the morning. Overall, very nice.
BradDate Played: 10/06/2010
SimonDate Played: 10/03/2010
Was wondering why the reviews for this course said the greens were anywhere from very good shape to worst shape possible, all within just a few days of one another. After playing it, I'm figuring now it's because of the look of the greens - they're not perfectly green like bermuda greens tend to be. But they're rolling just fine. Don't let their look fool you, or take away from a quality golf experience. Nice people, great conditions overall, great experience.
JimDate Played: 09/11/2010
Have played River Club before and it was in better shape. I also realize the greens were going to be plugged the next day.
RussDate Played: 09/10/2010
Nice layout. Tees and fairways were in good shape. Greens were stressed from hot weather. Lots of water on course. Staff very friendly. Bent greens, so maybe not so good in summer or early fall. Target golf. Worth it for a special rate.

Very nice course, lots of water but the layout was great, many holes bend to the right, for me it was a slicer's delight! Pro shop, starter and bag guys were all great, for the money it was well worth it, one of the best tracks in southern Myrtle Beach!
JaniceDate Played: 08/12/2010
(Would like to have known prior to booking) that there was no driving range.
LloydDate Played: 08/09/2010
The course was in great shape. My favorite hole was ##9 which is the ##1 handicap hole. The staff was friendly and the ammenities were great. (Water coolers, bathroom locations, beverage cart, and starter).

We have come down to Litchfield 4 out of the last 5 years ... and we will keep coming back. Courses are fantastic.
ShaneDate Played: 07/28/2010

ShaneDate Played: 07/25/2010
I have always loved the layout of this demanding course. Unfortunately, I played it yesterday and the greens were terrible ... extremely damaged and very very slow!
GraftonDate Played: 07/25/2010
Great experience and pace of play. Greens were in rough shape. Very bumpy and sandy, which led to erratic putting.
RandyDate Played: 07/23/2010
Okay course. Nothing too jaw dropping. 18th hole a bit too easy. Driver and a wedge from the regular tee to a par 5 isn't my idea of a tough par 5. Greens were in decent shape for being bent grass. The challenge of water on 15 of the 18 holes is a bit much. Little ponds that aren't in play shouldn't count towards it. The staff were top notch. Best staff on the beach!!
RandyDate Played: 07/21/2010
Had fun, but not used to bentgrass greens being from Florida.
GloriaDate Played: 07/19/2010

I love the holes with the water features, especially the par 5's. I thought that the greens rolled true but were very slow compared to other Myrtle Beach courses. I would have liked faster greens.

Course was in good of condition as any other we played for the week. A little tough for the women on holes you HAD to fly the ball into the green, even a small opening or bailout area would have enhanced the experience for them.

Lack of food! We came right from the airport and figured we would eat there. All you had were old hot dogs.
JohnDate Played: 03/25/2010
Course setup was great, many bunkers protecting greens. Also tree line was cleared so that you good hit and advance the ball & helped in playing quicker.
CurtisDate Played: 03/23/2010
Would like to have a full driving range but this course only has nets to hit into.
BrettDate Played: 03/21/2010
Very good B+ course. Although they didn't break very much, I felt the greens ran very true at about a 10-10 1/2 on the stimp. Fairways and tees were in decent shape, rough wasn't that difficult. The only problem I have with this course was the over-loading of bunkers jetting into the middle of the fairways. I don't mind it on a few holes but it felt like almost all of them. Staff was very friendly, will go back sometime.
AnthonyDate Played: 03/17/2010

KeithDate Played: 11/09/2009
HAd most semi private feel of all courses played that week. Greens take obviously the brunt of the play. I know I repaired 4-5 significant ball marks per green. Bent grass just doesn't tolerate that kind of neglect from people who play the course. Would suggest course marshalls that encoursge pace of play, repairing divots and especially ball marks on greens.

BillDate Played: 05/19/2009
Every trip to Myrtle Beach should include a round at The River Club. A well maintained course that is challenging but fair. When you check your score card after the 17th hole you pull up to the 18th - a risk/reward if there ever was one! Go for it! It's worth the reward. My first double eagle.
