Rivers Edge Golf Club and Plantation has recently earned an overall rating of 8.5 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course layout, overall experience, and course condition.
Designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, this golf course close to Myrtle Beach was built on a pristine piece of property on the banks of Shallotte River. Golfers that enjoy a challenge on the course, along with a beautiful scenic setting, River’s Edge is the place to be. It was recognized by Golf Digest as among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” in 2005 and 2007, and GolfWeek ranked it the #5 course in North Carolina. The signature hole No. 18, a 350-yard par 4, plays very challenging with a great view of the clubhouse to finish the round.

First time played. Very enjoyable round. Staff very good but conditions impacted by recent rains. Cart paths only which is always a bummer. Look forward to playing in future under better conditions.

Overall the course has tons of character, but the greens were in such poor shape it barely justifies the rate paid of $40. If this courses greens weren't so bad it would be a wonderful and challenging layout. The rest of the course was in average shape.

Excellent layout with many memorable holes. Especially enjoyed the par 3 holes. Greens seem to have had history of less than excellent condition however overall course experience was very good. Bonus was getting lunch credit.

Great layout but they need a sign out on Rte. 17 identifying the turn off. Maintenance of the greens was not up to the caliber of the golf course, but it was still fun. Pace of play was slow. They need a ranger to move people along.

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.

You need to bring your A game for this course. You can hit it well but in the wrong spot and pay the price. Course maintenance overall seems to be down, most of the fairway and greenside bunkers were untended mud pits.

Great course, very scenic. Shot makers course, only used driver 3 or 4 times. Number 9 is a beast!!!
