River Oaks Golf Plantation has recently earned an overall rating of 6.6 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course condition, and overall experience. Click here for River Oak’s most recent reviews.
Designed by Gene Hamm and Tom Jackson, the Plantation features 27 exciting holes of golf that was built on 800 pristine acres of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. The 27 holes are split into three different courses based on animals that were found inhabiting these areas when the course was built – Fox, Otter, and Bear.
The interesting aspect of the three nines is they can be played in three different 18-hole options, Bear-Fox, Otter-Bear and Fox-Otter (a fan favorite). River Oaks has recently undergone major renovations with 2,500+ trees cut down, and new Champion Bermuda greens that are said to be in immaculate condition.

Only good thing about River Oaks was the bag drop, the guy was very nice. Greens were in bad shape, pro shop had nothing and unfriendly. I would never go back even if it was free.

This place was a swamp. Standing water and mud holes throughput. I will never be back.

The condition of the course was fair. Our group found the greens not in the greatest condition. The group did not like this course and we will not play it on future trips to Myrtle Beach.

I played well on this course. We played the Otter course and then the Fox. Communities surrounding the course were very nice. This course is very well maintained.
