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.

Great layout, lots of water, staff was very nice. Great experience would love to do it again, aerated the greens a couple of weeks ago, when they come in it will be great.

Interesting layout. Greens were receptive and in great shape. Tee boxes were crowned making it hard to find a stance conducive to the shot needed. Overall a great value.

Nice course, well maintained. Lots of dog legs mostly to the left. Some narrow fairways are lined with homes, a slight miscue and you're ball is in their yard or worse, hitting their house. And with water near some of the greens, be sure to have extra golf balls. I appreciated the course layout/yardage card.

We have played at River Hills a number of years in the winter months. Always an enjoyable time. Will come back next winter.

River Hills is a wonderful golf course with several dog leg holes and lots of water. It also has well placed sand traps and tight fairways to cause you trouble. The course is in great shape minus the greens which were recently aerated and spotty from a fungus. They mentioned this to us in advance and gave us a discount because of it. Overall, I really enjoyed the course.

River Hills was perhaps the most beautiful course I have ever played. The conditions tee to green were spectacular! There was no wait time for our 2some even with the 4some ahead (fortunately they were playing a scramble). The course was challenging yet fair with landing areas that even amateurs could negotiate if they played with their heads! The staff was friendly and attentive. I would play at River Hills again in a heartbeat!
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.
