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.

A little far from South Myrtle.
Very tight with a lot of OB on the course. Bring you A game or single digit handicap.

Fun course but the greens were in need of more attention.Narrow fairways that make you concentrate harder.

Wish we had know that the staff would be holding up the first nine holes doing maint while we were trying to play. No they don't move to the side and allow you to play though. Next time I will choose a much later tee time or other course.

Very Nice, we play there every year, except for the dormant grass which had areas of mud on account of the winter. we will play again

The course is beautiful and I'd like to play it again when it's not quite so cold and wet. I suspect later in the Spring the course is one of the nicest in Myrtle Beach.
