River Oaks Golf Club - Bear/Fox
River Oaks Golf Club boasts three different nine-hole courses: the Bear, Fox, and Otter. Carefully carved from a former nature preserve, the courses sprawl across a scenic stretch of the Intracoastal with a convenient location that is just minutes from downtown Myrtle Beach. The nines, which are named after the different wildlife that call the club home, each have a unique character and different set of challenges and they can be mixed and matched to create different 18-hole combinations. The Bear/Fox golf course provides a challenging test with a front nine where water comes into play on almost every hole, including an almost-island green on the par-3 fourth. The Fox nine, the shortest of the three at 3,346 yards, gives you a chance to recover your score with some risk-reward opportunities.

We keep returning
River Oaks is a fun course to play. It is usually in good condition and greens run true although they have some challenging undulations. Fairways are generally good allowing play as the ball lies. The course is "lady friendly" for the most part which keeps my favorite golf partner (my wife) wanting to return.
A good day
The course is very wet and most shots will plug in the fairway. The layout is good and the greens track well. The course could use some TLC but overall it was good value for the money.
Great for the money
Great value for the money. Course was in great shape for the winter.
After escaping Canada's winter, River Oaks was a great way to kick off a new decade. The course is in very good condition and is enjoyed by my wife since it is generally "lady friendly". Fairways were overseeded, pleasant visually and easy to hit from. Overall, River Oaks is a nice golfing experience.
Great Value and close if in South end of Myrtle
Played there 7 times in last 3 weeks. Conditions were very good generally speaking. A little wet but that was to be expected. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Enjoyed playing bear, fox and osprey in that order. Pace of play was excellent as it wasn’t super busy at this time of year. Fees were very good using Golfnow. Bang for the buck tough to beat.
The course is straight forward and not tricked up. They had just over seeded but it was still very playable. One of the most exciting cart bridges anywhere adds to the charm and fun. The course is near the Jetport, Waccama Outlets, and the beach resorts. The staff is friendly and they grill burgers, hot dogs etc out under the covered patio. Beer is cold and it’s a nice place to sit and unwind after your round. It’s not as dramatic as some of the “name” courses but you can play in four hours and have an enjoyable round.
Fall golf at River Oaks
The starter was. a riot. He told us that there was a porta John on the third hole of the Fox course but forgot to tell us there was no more. Not good for an old guy in mixed company. The greens were slow making putts challenging. Overall we had a nice afternoon with the couple we were matched with. Darkness comes quick this time of year so starting before 12:30 is a must.
Wife and girlfriend enjoyed the nice golf course in Myrtle Beach
River Oaks Golf Club
This course was very enjoyable to play. The staff were extremely nice and remembered my name. The course itself was in decent condition considering the rain earlier in the week. It's level of difficulty fit my skills very well. I had two very enjoyable rounds, one on Friday and then on Saturday.
Slow, slow, slow...and they even let a twosome tee off in front of us as we were making the turn! Unbelievable. A five plus hour round.
Tee boxes are awful, particularly on the par three holes. Greens are also pretty slow.
I enjoyed the layout...not much else.
Enjoyed my round at River Oaks. In pretty good shape but you can tell it gets a lot of play. A few of the greens had very rough spots. Will play there again for sure.
Had a great time
Went out with a threesom played good you need to stay in the ferway ruff is thick had a good time made new friends
