Rating 72.9
Type Public
River Oaks Golf Plantation stretches across more than 800 scenic acres along the Intracoastal Waterway. The Plantation offers 27 holes that are divided into three nines, each named after the some of the wildlife that call the course home. The Fox, Otter, and Bear nines can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Fox/Otter Course begins with the shortest of the three nines and finishes with the longest. The final hole on the front nine presents one of the most interesting risk-reward opportunities on the golf course. You can aim for the right bunker for an open shot at the green or try a long drive down the left side for a short approach. River Oaks Golf Plantation's Otter nine has several challenges in store including mounding, strategically placed bunkers, and tricky water hazards.

poor drainage

This was a first time we golfed in Myrtle Beach. We were told it rained four days earlier. The course was extremely wet and appeared to not have been cut for days. The layout was good.

Decent course

Greens weren't perfect. Looked like it might have been from Hurricane Florence which came through a month before. But, the other courses we played the greens were fine.

Friendly staff!

The staff was easy to get asking with. The course was in good shape, could use more sand in the traps. Rough is tough to hit out of, even though it's not very long. Greens were true and held nicely. Good test of your skills.

Affordable Option

Nice course layout. Plenty long. Tricky greens. But fun. If the guy they had loading out clubs would not have acted like it was a 'Real Country Club' our day would have been almost perfect. So he received zero tips from any of the golfers around our group. I would however recommend anybody staying around the area to be sure to play River Oaks...

Great value!!!

We were looking for a course close to the airport so we could get in a full round before heading home. I would highly recommend this course if you need the same solution. We really enjoyed the course. We played Otter & Bear. Aside from one green that had a lot of winter kill on the Bear, the rest of the course was great. My buddy lives north of Myrtle Beach and said he will be back for sure.

River oaks

Course in overall average conditions, pace of play was very slow until the pro sent us out on the back which had no players in it , thank him!!

Hurricane conditions may had had alittle impact but things like cart paths were terrible; otherwise course was ok, pricing was alittle high for golf day @ 50+ player

I had a great round of golf

I showed up 30 minutes early and I was allowed to golf immediately. I found the staff to be courteous, friendly and helpful from the moment I got there until I left. The maintenance crew does a great job taking care of the golf course.

Terrible greens

The fairways were decent , but the greens are in terrible shape. That was the reason 18 holes for 21.00. Ok to just practice but come looking to hone your putting
