About River Club Golf Course (Myrtle Beach, SC)

Known as one of the area’s most challenging courses, the River Club golf course is a semi-private course designed by Tom Jackson, opening back in 1976. With wide fairways and enormous undulating greens, there’s plenty of room here for big hitters from the tee, but accuracy reigns supreme on the course’s approach shots.

With an abundance of water, a bit of accuracy also counts on drives. And if the water doesn’t get stray shots, there are more than 100 sand traps and bunkers waiting. With a tree-lined front-drive and houses lining the back nine, water plays a role on 15 of the course’s 18 holes. Myrtle Beach Sun News readers selected the par-5, 518-yard 18th as one of the area’s best finishing holes. Built on an old rice plantation in Pawley’s Island, the course measures 6,677 yards from the championship tees, short enough that golfers need to remember to keep their short irons and wedges handy.

Played River Club after playing Litchfield. I thought River Club was a little nicer. Just my perception. The facility's appearance reminds me of the Pearls. Course was in good shape, no complaints there. Greens ran pretty true, so there's not much more you can ask for. Would I recommend this track, yes.

Giving this one an incomplete. Went out early as a single didn't see another should until I got to the 8th tee. Started to rain on the 9th tee and then the sky opened up. Course was not to reopen until mid afternoon. Too many sand traps . Was my 1st trip to River Club , will go back , but at this point it is a 3.0-35 rating.
