About Rivers Edge Golf Club & Plantation (Shallotte, NC)

Recognized by Golf Digest as one of the country’s 100 best public golf courses, Rivers Edge Golf Course is an Arnold Palmer design offering seven holes on the Shallotte River riverfront with panoramic views of the river’s delta where it runs into the ocean.

Other prominent recognition from Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and others have included its selection as one of the country’s best new upscale courses, one of the country’s top 20 new courses, a top 10 course in North Carolina and one of the best new courses on the Grand Strand.

Measuring 6,909 from the gold tees and 6,440 yards from the blacks, Rivers Edge has a formidable 149 slope rating and many will want to play it from the white tees at 6,033 yards. For the ladies, there’s a choice of 5,295 yards or 4,692 yards from the green and blue tees respectively. The most talked about hole and either the most loved or most hated depending on whom you talk to, is the par-5 9th that begins with a tee shot toward a landing area running downhill toward the Shallotte River marshes. Next, it’s over the marsh to a small layup area and if successful there, it’s on to an approach shot to a long and narrow peninsular green.

While holes like the 9th garner the most discussion, it’s hard to overshadow some of the holes here that are as stunningly beautiful as any to be found, including the 16th, 17th and 18th playing next to the Shallotte River. This upscale course has all the amenities a golfer could desire.

Rivers Edge was the only course I was somewhat disappointed by but it had nothing to do with the course itself. The starter was friendly but the staff in the restaurant and the pro shop were outright miserable. Not only that but they gave us all ten dollar vouchers to use on food but the staff outright refused to accept them. Because they give you vouchers that seemed to make them feel that they could charge outrageous prices for food. The course itself was probably a bit too challenging for our group but it was in very nice shape. A little bit of a bummer that it was cart path only which made for a very long day but to be fair the course got hit by some big thunderstorms overnight. Overall our experience with the staff in the clubhouse made us definitely not want to return which was a bummer because the course was definitely worth replaying.

Love the challenge of this track but I really think number 9 would benefit from a bank at the back of the green. The hole is difficult enough without your slightly overhit approach rolling gently off the back into the marsh! lol

Course was very wet during our time there. Almost to the point of being unplayable. Of course it was cart path only when we played but the starter told us that even in 90 degree weather they had cart path only holes due to the low land the course occupies. Beautiful course otherwise. In spite of the saturation Arnie's revenge #9 was my favorite hole of our entire stay.
