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.

Rivers Edge is a great layout, although when the wind blows you have to be on your game. The course was in good shape. The bermuda greens were a bit slow, but were true. There are a few holes where they have some bare spots on the edges of the greens, but it did not detract from the experience. It is no secret that Rivers Edge has struggled with their greens, but they have figured them out and this is definitely a place to put on your list.

Good tough course
by Joe C (Cornwall on Hudson, NY) - 02/05/2016
Course was in good condition.
by Mike - 10/14/2015
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.
by Brian - 02/23/2015
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.
by John - 02/25/2014
This course looks intimidating when walking around the clubhouse waiting to tee off. From the white tees it is a pleasant course, not too long, but very demanding. Accurate shots are critical but well rewarded. This is my first Palmer course and our group really enjoyed it. It is not a cake walk. The 9th and 18th holes are nothing short of breathtaking. And a misplaced shot will cost you dearly. After walking off of number 9 you will know you played one mean hole, but it was beautiful. Would play this again many times.

Great course, very scenic. Shot makers course, only used driver 3 or 4 times. Number 9 is a beast!!!
by Brian (Ocean City, MD) - 11/12/2013
Great course, however most of our group considered it a little too difficult.
by John (Springfield, PA) - 11/05/2013
Cart path only makes for a tough day pretty good lay out but needs work I know they were overseeding but maybe do it earlier
by David (Tyrone, GA) - 08/02/2013
Love the course its always in great shape. The green were very slow
by David - 09/10/2012
Course was in nice shape even after some heavy rain. It's always a favorite for when our group visits the area. Highly recommended for playing in its current condition.
by Robert (Canonsburg, PA) - 08/11/2012
Speed of play needs to improve.
by David - 07/19/2012
Played it a few days ago. Course was in nice shape overall. Greens were a little slow but smooth. Awesome layout and would highly recommend this course to anyone who's interested in playing it.
by Chris (Hickory, NC) - 07/04/2012
Beautiful views all over the course. Very peaceful setting. Number nine is a beast!
by Robert - 07/01/2012
Lovely course, lots of water. Requires precise shot making. Definitely play again.
by Bill (Charlotte, NC) - 06/28/2012
Course in outstanding shape and always fun. Pro shop couldn't be nicer.
by Craig - 05/23/2012
Greens are back! Course in great shape.
by Chris - 05/17/2012
Had a 9:30 a.m. tee time on Saturday 5/5/12. At 12:30 p.m. I was still standing on the ninth tee box. Walked off the course and they can keep their 9-hole rain check. 2 years in a row a bad experience at this place. Last year course was in horrible shape and this year I did not get a chance to see it all. Never again Rivers Edge.

Rivers Edge is back! After some negative posts over the past 12-18 months I can honestly say, make the trip, you'll be glad you did! Spectacular views & challenging course for under $75? ... Are you kidding me?!! Once again, Rivers Edge is a Myrtle Beach must-play!
by Mitsy - 03/03/2012
We had given up on that course last year because of bad maintenance but this year, it is a whole different story: the fairways are great, so are most of the tee boxes and finally, after a few disastrous years, those greens are beautiful. They really worked hard to get that course back on its tracks and we are very grateful because we always enjoyed its layout.
by Zak - 12/23/2011
This course has some great features and is worth playing. The last time we played it, the locals were awful to other foursomes that we were traveling with. Taunting, hitting in, and retreating when confronted hangs a dark cloud over this course. Staff had nothing really to say or do to remedy the situation for the large group disappointment. Would love to play it again without the exterior antics of the few.
by Craig - 11/13/2011
Great layout. Must hit it straight. Greens need a little more time. Very thin.
by Don (Chambersburg, Penn.) - 10/26/2011
Greens need some work. On a course of this caliber, greens do not match up with other course conditions.
by Aaron (Bowie, Md.) - 09/21/2011
Beautiful course. Well kept. Staff is very friendly and on top of things. Best 19th I've seen yet.
by John - 09/15/2011
Overall, the course is in outstanding condition. Number 10 green had a few rough spots, but nearly all others were smooth & consistent. Fairways & tees are in great shape. The layout speaks for itself, especially 9 & 15 to 18. I would happily recommend this course in its current condition.
by Dennis - 05/06/2011
We have played this course in the past and I love it. The condition of the course was horrible. Not sure I would play for a couple of years. Supposedly they are giving us a rain check for next year.
by Jim (Rochester, Mich.) - 05/02/2011
We played on April 30th as a group of 16 that have been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 30 years. Don't play this course! Fairways were great, layout is entertaining, course people were awesome but these positives were overwhelmed by the terrible condition of the greens. They are literally unputtable!
by Brett (Yorktown, N.Y.) - 03/09/2011
What a cow pasture. The greens are a joke. The fairways have weeds. Even the beautiful marsh scenery couldn't save this one. The greenskeeper must be the same guy that runs Heron Point. So shocked to see so many good comments on this one, Jason and Mike seem to be the only ones sober when they golfed this. A so-called top 5 golf course in Myrtle Beach would never allow their greens to get THAT bad. I can actually say that I couldn't wait to finish my round. What a shame.
by DJ (Cleveland, Ohio) - 06/27/2010
Beautiful layout with wonderful marsh views. The course was in very good condition. The greens rolled very slowly, but were true.
by John (Rocky Mount, N.C.) - 06/13/2010
Beautiful course with some excellent holes. Greens were super slow due to just being aerified. Friendly staff.
by Steve - 11/11/2009
I loved this course - great views, every hole was awesome. It would have been nice if it was a little drier; cart paths only was the only negative.
by William (Mooresville, N.C.) - 09/18/2009
Also excellent course for price paid. Superior course conditions and very friendly and helpful staff. Look forward to returning when the new greens have grown in and are a couple points quicker. This is one of my favorites.
by JOHNNY - 02/03/2009
The holes next to the river are beautiful. The rest of the course is pretty average.
