This is my favorite course in the grand Strand area. Played it July 6 , fairways were great and greens were smooth and true. Lovely Arnold Palmer layout, challenging but rewards good shots. Be sure to choose the right tees . You won't find a...More

5 hour round!!! Spoke with ranger and we were told nothing they could do and never came around again. 4 groups on several holes. Have to pay separately for gps for carts. Course poorly marked. Go elsewhere for a better experience!

I'm not sure what Casey from PA was looking at a week ago, but the only good part about this dogpatch was the cart attendant. They started us on the back nine which already had 2 groups waiting on the tee box. Our tee time...More

This may be the most scenic course on the Grand Strand. From the traditional pine tree lined holes to the hard river/marsh holes, this place is great. Holes 8-9 and 15-18 are spectacular. Bring extra balls because everyone looses a few on this difficult but...More

The new Sunday Ultra Dwarf (SUD) Bermuda greens are terrific. However, I’m a little (a lot) biased given that I’ve played Rivers’s Edge since 2000 when Arnold Palmer personally opened & dedicated, on Bent Greens, & we live on the 16th. We later went to...More

Another great golf course north of the grand strand. Some really challenging holes, but very playable for the bogey golfer. Well kept course. Local rates are excellent.

Played it for the third time today and we as a group could not ask for a better time. From paying to turning in the cart after 18, everyone was accommodating and most helpful. Play to your handicap as it is very challenging and rewarding....More

This is a beautiful long and narrow course with some of the toughest holes! It is challenging psychologically when all you can see is swamp and the glint of the flag on a outcropping of green! I managed to get over the swamp but it...More

I have not heard anything derogatory concerning Rivers Edge. Bad news, as you know, travels faster than good news. Generally, they take a lot of pride in there course.
