Rivers Edge Golf Club

One of only four Grand Strand courses bearing the signature of “The King,” Arnold Palmer, Rivers Edge Golf Club opened in 1999 to rave reviews that included recognition as among one of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest Magazine. Nearly two decades later, this design maintains a stellar reputation for its playability and unmatched scenery.

Rivers Edge’s new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermudagrass greens offer putting surfaces renowned for their consistency and smoothness. Seven of Rivers Edge’s 18 holes feature dramatic water elements as they spectacularly showcase the Shallotte River and Copas Lake, delivering unforgettable views that extend for miles.

Among its many memorable holes, the par-5 9th plays along the marsh requiring accuracy off the tee and on your second shot, with a third-shot approach into a razor-thin green that will test the mettle of even the most skilled golfers. Rivers Edge’s par-4 6th offers a dramatic marshland setting whose subtle dogleg left layout makes it one of the course’s most challenging holes, while the par-5 17th offers a great risk-reward opportunity to reach the green in two.

If you’re looking to add a course to your “most-scenic bucket list,” you won’t go wrong with Rivers Edge and will leave with plenty of treasured memories.

Close to being the best course that I have ever played !!! Very hard to describe exactly what type of course it is - semi links, parkland,......but one sure thing is that it is a course that will last long in the memory. Each hole has its own unique quality but in particular holes 9, 11, 16, 17 & 18 are outstanding. The scenery is breathtaking with views of the marshlands adding greatly to the overall enjoyment. It is not an easy course with both tee shots and approach play requiring full concentration. The greens were very good and attention had to be given to the grain which is something that we amateur golfers done give enough attention to. The signature hole, par 5 no. 9, is simply outstanding and having read a lot about it I was really looking forward to the challenge. The tee shot is aimed to a hidden (from the tee) landing area and unless you are driving the ball 300 yards then the second shot is a lay up to a small landing area. The 3rd shot is then played through a narrow channel of fairway to a long green that is probably only 15 yards wide - take your par and run !!! The only disappointment is the pro shop which is small in comparison to other clubs and doesn't carry a lot of stock and the only yardage books that they had were photocopies!

Golf course is beautiful and in great condition considering the recent heavy rains in North and South Carolina. Fairways were soggy, but the greens were firm and putted beautifully. Love the layout. Friendly staff.

What a golf course! Six of its holes are along marshland and Intracoastal Waterway. Those holes are one of the nicest and most spectacular you'll ever play. Number 9 and 18 are just awesome, fantastic, spectacular and at the same time (especially number 9) one of the most challening holes i ever played. All other holes are nice too! The fairways were ingreat shape. Thee Tees and greens just have been aerified (4 days before we played it) so there was quite some sand on them and they were not really playable. Same with bunkers, there wasn't a lot of sand in them. However, it was worth playing it just because of the layout. I definitely will play it again.

Straight into my top 10 of all time courses. Lots of good holes and a few great ones. Greens were not quite up to speed after a bad winter but did not spoil a fantastic course and one I would recommend to anyone. Poor pro shop but that seems to be a theme at all courses we played.

Overall the course was in good condition given the weather conditions. Greens were slow but appeared to be rebounding nicely from earlier problems. The staff was polite and did of good job of handling the weather delay. Very scenic!

Too far off season to judge.
