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.

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!

Very challenging course, however the greens and fairways were not up to par. Would play there again in better weather, type of grass being used is not appealing to the eyes, brown greens?
