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.

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.

Not a good track. Boring. Lower class by far in the portfolio. Attack of the condos on the first 5 holes of Otter. All I remember is the bridges and not wanting to eat there.

Course - especially the greens were in terrible condition. The course should not even be open - I am a local and likely will not be back anytime soon. I felt cheated of my money.

Will not go back to River Oaks. Did not appreciate the practical joke on hole ##2 on the Fox course. My tee shot landed somewhere on the right side of the fairway near the out-of-bounce area where there are homes located. When I bent down to pick up a golfball I got drenched by a spinkler/hose that was triggered by touching a golfball lying on the ground near a fence.
