Nice course, well maintained. Lots of dog legs mostly to the left. Some narrow fairways are lined with homes, a slight miscue and you're ball is in their yard or worse, hitting their house. And with water near some of the greens, be sure to have extra golf balls. I appreciated the course layout/yardage card.

River Hills is a wonderful golf course with several dog leg holes and lots of water. It also has well placed sand traps and tight fairways to cause you trouble. The course is in great shape minus the greens which were recently aerated and spotty from a fungus. They mentioned this to us in advance and gave us a discount because of it. Overall, I really enjoyed the course.

Greens were plugged. We were not told when booking on this web site. And also it was cart path only.. so very slow and they booked twosomes behind us who were locals. And just because you are old and retired doesn't deserve respect unless you give it. Nasty local retired people, may cross this off our list just for that reason.

Over 6 days, we played 10 rounds of golf at 10 different MB courses. Overall, this was our best experience. This is a beautiful challenging course and it is in excellent shape. Perfect greens and fairways with the tee boxes good. Only Hole ##1 is a bit iffy. Some elevation change here. The course ranger was active here so we were able to play in just under 4.5 hours. Would highly recommend and would return.

Fantastic, but very narrow course. Course was in phenominal shape for March, greens were absolutly perfect. If you are a high handicap or wild off the tee, bring some extra balls and expect to be a little frustrated. I'm a 5 handicap and only used my driver on 4 holes (hit thru FW on 2 of those) due to the narrow fairways and extreme doglegs. Staff was very curteous, range and practice green were large and well maintained. They offer free yardage books at the clubhouse, highly recommend you get one if you have never played the course, a GPS will be extremely helpful as well. Overall, I would make the 2 hour drive again and again to play this tough course. Have fun on ##17 (draw or cut around the tree will leave you in position for a long iron into the green in 2) and ##18 to close out your day, extra club or 2 is recommended to reach the green on your approach to ##18 (caution off the tee, don't go thru the FW).

It was a good golf course. However, the course had aerated the greens 6 days before play. MyrtleBeachGolf.com failed to mention this when we booked the course and this made it nearly unplayable (not course's fault). They also failed to mention that due to this, the price of the greens fees went from 42 to 32. MyrtleBeachGolf.com charged us full price and almost ruined a golf trip to Myrtle!

The course was in very good condition. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The layout is a bit quirky, requiring that shots be hit in certain places, which makes it difficult for first time players to determine where to hit their shots. Lots of water. The pace of play was brutal, a result of poor golfers losing lots of balls in the woods and water.

We had not been on this course in nearly 10 years, and after finishing our round, we are ready to go back. This course was in great shape. The greens were putting true and fast. The fairways were nice and mowed low with the rough in great condition as well. The par 5s were challenging and quite scenic. The added shrubs and landscaping around the tee area were outstanding. To me, these are the bright spots to a great round of golf. We will be going back again and again!

I love the layout, condition, and greens. However - the staff was terrible! We had a 7:56 a.m. tee time and they bypassed us and let another four groups go ahead of us! So we asked why and they got the tickets mixed up! Therefore they had us tee off behind another group at Number 10. Needless to say it took us over 5 hours to play a round of golf. The staff did nothing to get that group to speed their play up, nor did that group use proper etiquette and allow us to play through.
