Rivers Edge Golf Club2000 Arnold Palmer Dr, Shallotte, NC 28470
One of only four Grand Strand courses bearing the signature of “The King,” Arnold Palmer, Rivers Edge Golf Club opened in 1999 to rave reviews that included recognition as among one of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest Magazine. Nearly two decades later, this design maintains a stellar reputation for its playability and unmatched scenery.
Rivers Edge’s new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermudagrass greens offer putting surfaces renowned for their consistency and smoothness. Seven of Rivers Edge’s 18 holes feature dramatic water elements as they spectacularly showcase the Shallotte River and Copas Lake, delivering unforgettable views that extend for miles.
Among its many memorable holes, the par-5 9th plays along the marsh requiring accuracy off the tee and on your second shot, with a third-shot approach into a razor-thin green that will test the mettle of even the most skilled golfers. Rivers Edge’s par-4 6th offers a dramatic marshland setting whose subtle dogleg left layout makes it one of the course’s most challenging holes, while the par-5 17th offers a great risk-reward opportunity to reach the green in two.
If you’re looking to add a course to your “most-scenic bucket list,” you won’t go wrong with Rivers Edge and will leave with plenty of treasured memories.
