River Falls Golf Plantation in Duncan is a Gary Player Signature Course. Its location makes it convenient for meeting up with people coming from Asheville, Columbia, Atlanta, or Charlotte. The golf course is also just minutes away from downtown Greenville. The narrow layout will test the accuracy and shot making abilities of even the best golfers. Rolling hills provide a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. Water hazards come into play frequently and there are also strategically placed bunkers framing the greens and fairways. Player crafted a golf course that is both formidable and scenic. The abundance of mature trees helped him achieve this. He carefully wove River Falls Golf Plantation through the mature forests, allowing the trees to surround the holes, giving each a secluded and peaceful feel.

Beat my son

Course in great shape. Overall I did not play well but beat my son for first time in 2 years. Paired up with two guys, Ashley and Randy. Good fun, watched some bad and good shots. Drank a few beers on the back nine that improved my score by 8 shots. Had a birdie. Great Day!

Friendly Staff:

The staff was very friendly in all areas, checking in, starter and the restaurant.
Course was in nice shape despite the lack of rain in the area. Greens were in nice shape and had good speed.
Wish I lived closer, I would consider joining.

Good course, good pro, cartpaths a war zone.

Fairways, greens, layout are great. I've never seen a course completely re-pave their cartpaths but this course needs it very, very badly. That and some improved tee boxes are the only drawbacks. The cartpath improvement would drastically improve word of mouth reviews.

Beautiful golf course/ super staff

River Falls has a great variety of par 4’s and exciting risk/reward par 5’s. The greens are relatively flat but are always in good shape. The head pro, Travis, is tremendous and makes sure everyone feels welcome. And the pro shop is well stocked with a variety of merchandise at great prices. It’s a great place to play!

No water

Nice course to play but they would not let me take my cooler on to the course even though I had nothing but ice water in it. It's always been like this at this course and that's one reason I do not like to play it. Everyone can't afford to purchase high dollar drinks inside their clubhouse and pay for card and green fee and like I said I had nothing but water inside my cooler.

Great Layout - Average Conditions

I have played River Falls several times in the past. This was the first time I have played the course in several years.

The course is very fun, challenging and has some beautiful golf holes. The conditions are very average, outside of the greens. Most of the greens are great (roll true, smooth and quick). There are several greens which have lots of dirt and dead spots in and around the greens. The tee boxes are awful. Many have little to no grass and the worst part is that the ground on the tee boxes is so dry and hard that you can not even put a tee in the ground. I have never played a course with tee boxes so hard and dry.

The staff at the course is very nice and friendly. The course could be a real gem if they would maintain a little better (many pathways to tee boxes the boards are broken, rotten and in bad condition.

If you get a good deal on GolfNow or some other place, take advantage and go play.

First time playing the course and absolutely loved it. Very scenic holes and quite a few that demand a well placed shot. Greens very in decent shape and rolled pretty true. Staff was awesome.
