As usual, the golf course was in great shape with the usual rye over-seed of the Bermuda grass. The clubhouse is undergoing some major updating renovations at the moment, but check in runs smoothly in the restaurant portion. Personnel are always pleasant and helpful. And,...More

As nice as any golf course as I have played in Myrtle Beach. Great conditions from tees to greens. Very challenging. Lots of water and sand. Staff was very helpful and interactive. Pace was OK. Plenty of doglegs. Looking forward to playing again.

From the greeting on arrival, to the pro shop, to the marshals and starters, to the course, everything at River Club is always top notch. A very good golf course that is fun to play and challenging.

We played the River Club and found the course to be well maintained and fair. The greens rolled true and there are numerous tees to select from based on the player's handicaps. One bummer is the lack of a practice range. The staff were excellent,...More
