River Hills Golf and Country Club

Setting itself apart from the pack was no easy task for River Hills Golf & Country Club. Yet, the Little River course has done just that putting the terrain it was built upon to the test.

Undulation throughout, coupled with the fact that none of the holes run parallel to each other amid the heavily wooded area, turns River Hills from a manageable track to one that can confound the unprepared. 

“It’s a visually deceptive golf course,” head professional David Spoone said. “Because of the way the designer made it, it can [confuse] you. There are elevation changes. They are mild, but for Myrtle Beach, it’s quite unique.”

Tom Jackson’s layout blended the location with the game, maybe unlike any other course around Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Holes dip and dive around water on 13 of the 18 holes and tree-lined fairways throughout. That is evident no more than on No. 17, the course’s signature hole.

The double-doglegged par-5 stretches to as much as 491 yards. Players must hit their tee shot over a stream while avoiding a tree nestling the lip of the first landing area. If that wasn’t another, that water cuts back across the fairway just in time for the second dogleg.

Beautiful course. Great challenge for all players. I do suggest that if you arent near single digit handicap then playing the forward tees will make a more enjoyable game.

Course in great shape. Greens in good condition. Very playable. Enjoyable round of golf ,but if someone find the two yellow balls that somehow found the water. Please handle with care, apparently they are attracted to water--great day

Our group only had 3 today. The course paired us with local legend Coach. What a great guy to enjoy a round with. The course itself was perfect. Couldnt have asked for it to be in better shape.

First time playing this hidden gem. Fairways, tee boxes and greens were in great shape compared to other courses in the area this time of year. Many challenging shots... for 39.00 plus tax well worth the trip....

Great course to play. 17 of us played on Saturday and the course was in great condition. There is a wide range of holes. The Par 5 17th is a classic. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. One of the best deals in the MB area.

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.

by Denny (Lexington Park, MD) -
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.

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.

First time playing here, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The golf course was in great shape from tee to green. Bunkers were very fair to play from. The greens were very receptive to approach shots yet when putting rather fast. My hats off to the golf course superintendent and their staff

by Bill (Terryville, CT) -
Greens were plugged. We were not told when booking on this web site. And also it was cart path only.. so very slow and they booked twosomes behind us who were locals. And just because you are old and retired doesn't deserve respect unless you give it. Nasty local retired people, may cross this off our list just for that reason.

Over 6 days, we played 10 rounds of golf at 10 different MB courses. Overall, this was our best experience. This is a beautiful challenging course and it is in excellent shape. Perfect greens and fairways with the tee boxes good. Only Hole ##1 is a bit iffy. Some elevation change here. The course ranger was active here so we were able to play in just under 4.5 hours. Would highly recommend and would return.

River Hills Golf and Country Club
by Gregory (Camp Lejeune, NC) -
Fantastic, but very narrow course. Course was in phenominal shape for March, greens were absolutly perfect. If you are a high handicap or wild off the tee, bring some extra balls and expect to be a little frustrated. I'm a 5 handicap and only used my driver on 4 holes (hit thru FW on 2 of those) due to the narrow fairways and extreme doglegs. Staff was very curteous, range and practice green were large and well maintained. They offer free yardage books at the clubhouse, highly recommend you get one if you have never played the course, a GPS will be extremely helpful as well. Overall, I would make the 2 hour drive again and again to play this tough course. Have fun on ##17 (draw or cut around the tree will leave you in position for a long iron into the green in 2) and ##18 to close out your day, extra club or 2 is recommended to reach the green on your approach to ##18 (caution off the tee, don't go thru the FW).

Played course March 6th, 2013 and found it to be exceptional. Fairways and greens were superb given the time of the season. Played from white tees since the conditions were windy and found it to be a great test of golf. Many holes are deceptive and captures your attention as to how to play your shot both from the tees and approach shots. Numerous tee decks to suit all abilities. Must play course. Played many courses in Myrtle Beach over the years and only regret not finding this hidden gem sooner. Will be on my short list of regular courses to play here each year.

by Stephen (Monongahela, PA) -
It was a good golf course. However, the course had aerated the greens 6 days before play. MyrtleBeachGolf.com failed to mention this when we booked the course and this made it nearly unplayable (not course's fault). They also failed to mention that due to this, the price of the greens fees went from 42 to 32. MyrtleBeachGolf.com charged us full price and almost ruined a golf trip to Myrtle!

by Robert (Tampa, FL) -
The course was in very good condition. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The layout is a bit quirky, requiring that shots be hit in certain places, which makes it difficult for first time players to determine where to hit their shots. Lots of water. The pace of play was brutal, a result of poor golfers losing lots of balls in the woods and water.

The pace of play was pathetic. The ranger said he was going to move the slow group along. If possible the pace got slower. I love the area but I won't play this course again. Conditions were OK but many of the women's tees were not playable. Many of the bunkers were not raked. Range balls were plastic.

The starter, Dick Huffman, was quite the professional starter. Gave an accurate and thorough summary of the golf course. The greens were excellent considering it's still only January. The fairways were well cut and in great shape. You have a premium quality golf course that I've never played before and I've been coming here for over 20 years. I'll be back most assuredly.

We had not been on this course in nearly 10 years, and after finishing our round, we are ready to go back. This course was in great shape. The greens were putting true and fast. The fairways were nice and mowed low with the rough in great condition as well. The par 5s were challenging and quite scenic. The added shrubs and landscaping around the tee area were outstanding. To me, these are the bright spots to a great round of golf. We will be going back again and again!

Course likes to book tee times on both #1 and #10 at same time which creates a lot of delays. Staff on course not pleasant at all and don't seem to understand how to coordinate course traffic well. Course seemed to be in good condition however because of the course management this was one of my worst golf experiences. Look somewhere else to play.

I love the layout, condition, and greens. However - the staff was terrible! We had a 7:56 a.m. tee time and they bypassed us and let another four groups go ahead of us! So we asked why and they got the tickets mixed up! Therefore they had us tee off behind another group at Number 10. Needless to say it took us over 5 hours to play a round of golf. The staff did nothing to get that group to speed their play up, nor did that group use proper etiquette and allow us to play through.
