South Carolina’s famed Lowcountry is defined by moss-draped southern oaks, historic plantations, and southern hospitality, and the River Club in Pawleys Island carries on these traditions for golfers to enjoy every day. Known as a must-play in the Pawleys Island area, the River Club has everything you’d come to expect from a top facility: a challenging design with memorable holes, aesthetics pleasing to the eye, everyday pristine conditions, and a hospitable staff ready to ensure your experience is nothing less than exceptional. Yes, this is the River Club experience. Besides reliably fantastic conditions, golfers appreciate this signature Tom Jackson design for its playability and enjoyment. With water found on 14 holes, players must play well to score well, though its challenge isn’t artificially made from distance, as the River Club plays to just under 6700 yards from the back tees. Built on a former rice plantation, the River Club opened to heralded reviews in 1985, and continues to be a must-play course, recently receiving four and a half stars from Golf Digest’s Places to Play ratings. With over 100 bunkers found on course, this plantation style design is a pleasure to play. The daunting yet beautiful par-3 14th features a bulkheaded island green with surrounding bunkers. The dogleg right 15th has water in play from tee to green, with a gently sloped back-to-front green guarded by overhanging trees and water. The par-5 finishing 18th is arguably one of the best in the state. With water in play again, this risk reward reachable par-5 is a fitting finish to this spectacular par-72 layout.Just a short drive from Myrtle Beach to the Lowcountry of Pawleys Island, you’ll find the River Club, a can’t-miss experience for every golfer. Come and appreciate the Lowcountry charm at the River Club, your next best round of golf.
