River Hills Golf and Country Club

Setting itself apart from the pack was no easy task for River Hills Golf & Country Club. Yet, the Little River course has done just that putting the terrain it was built upon to the test.

Undulation throughout, coupled with the fact that none of the holes run parallel to each other amid the heavily wooded area, turns River Hills from a manageable track to one that can confound the unprepared. 

“It’s a visually deceptive golf course,” head professional David Spoone said. “Because of the way the designer made it, it can [confuse] you. There are elevation changes. They are mild, but for Myrtle Beach, it’s quite unique.”

Tom Jackson’s layout blended the location with the game, maybe unlike any other course around Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Holes dip and dive around water on 13 of the 18 holes and tree-lined fairways throughout. That is evident no more than on No. 17, the course’s signature hole.

The double-doglegged par-5 stretches to as much as 491 yards. Players must hit their tee shot over a stream while avoiding a tree nestling the lip of the first landing area. If that wasn’t another, that water cuts back across the fairway just in time for the second dogleg.

This is a really well-run operation. Overall condition of the course was excellent. It's tough but fair. The staff is great, the practice facilities are great and the value is great. One of the best on the Strand.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the layout and condition of the course. To get something this nice at home I'd have to pay over $80. Fairways were clean and grassy, and the greens were in great shape. Excellent practice area as well. Staff were courteous. All around good experience. Worth the 30-minute drive.

Challenging but very playable if you don't take too many risks, water on most holes. Greens and fairways were in great shape considering all the rain.

Way too many leaves on the fairways. The rough was a little tough. Spent way to much time looking for balls just off the fairway due to, what we call "Love Grass". Beautiful course and great staff overall.

We had a problem with an overzealous ranger who wanted our foursome to keep up with the two threesomes ahead of us. A talk with the starter at the turn corrected that problem.

Very good.

The fairways were too wet.
