River Hills Golf and Country Club, a Tom Jackson design, has been named a “Top 50 in the Southeast” golf course by Golf Week and was nominated as one of the country’s “Best New Courses” by Golf Digest. Since opening in 1988, has given locals and visitors every reason to return. Unlike most courses along the Coastal areas of South Carolina, River Hills incorporates rolling hills and heavily wooden terrain to create a unique look all its own. With a recently renovated colonial-style clubhouse, the combination of amenities, value and pure golf make River Hills a must-play.
Most importantly, River Hills rates year-round as one of the Grand Strand’s most consistent courses. Pristine conditions greet players, and the challenging-yet-fair design entertains the imagination of the game. Champion Ultra-Dwarf Bermuda greens help make up for elevations differences that reach as high as 40 feet at some points. River Hills plays as long as 6,918 yards from the back tees and as short as 5,030 yards from the ladies’ tees.
The course’s signature hole is the 526-yard par-5 No. 17, a double-water, double-dogleg masterpiece that serves as the ultimate risk-reward for players nearing the end of their round. Before you reach that point, however, there is a symbolic give-and-take from the layout. For every tougher hole, an easier one directly follows it. It prevents players from feeling “beat up” while still delivering a challenge for the brave.
Located just outside North Myrtle Beach in historic Little River, River Hills Golf and Country Club is just a short drive north from the heart of the Grand Strand.

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.

For that time of the year that course was very good.

It was a great course to play, everything was inviting.
From our friends at Beach TV comes this video, where LPGA teaching professional and 2014 Mrs. South Carolina America Meredith Kirk recently took time out to visit with River Hills Golf & Country Club's general manager, Harriss D'Antignac, to learn more about one of the Grand Strand's great finishing holes – its par-5 18th.
