Soggy Bog

The course is wet, did I mention wet? The ground was saturated from tee to green. I live in the area but we haven't had rain in a number of days so I don't know what was going on. Only six holes were "cart path only" and that was a plus. The greens were in great shape but very slow....spongy almost.

Great layout

Good fairways tees and greens on scale of-10 7. Layout is great can be tricky if you don’t know the course but fun to play. Highly recommend. One par 3 had artificial mat to hit from, I didn’t like that. GPS in cart a big plus.

Great layout

This is a great piece of property and layout. Very challenging even from white tees. Wet conditions limited roll and bounce around greens. Sand traps were a little thin but otherwise greens in good conditions for the season It was a challenge for a 17 handicapper and you will lose a few balls. Just carry a few mulligans with you.

Loved it

Played modified alternate shot in the fall classic. Great variety of holes made for numerous risk reward decisions. Finished with 4th best score for the day.! Very happy with par on #9 with peninsula green. Given the opportunity would play it again anytime.

Great course

It had been a while since I played Rivers Edge and I had forgotten how good this course is. Really good layout and it was in perfect condition. The greens are moderately fast, but true. My favorite hole is number 9. What a brute, but what a fun hole to play and beautiful on top of that. I will be back sooner than later.

Bring many balls

Number 9 is crazy hard in the wind. Many nice holes. Not sure why there are mats instead of tee boxes on the par 3 on the back. I like the GPS on the carts.

Better than anticipated

Mr. Palmer designed a fair challenging track. Conditions were good despite a very dry summer. Beginning at the 9th the round gets “Real” the home stretch if it’s windy just play for bogey.. fun day!

Excellent layou

Staff are very friendly. Layout make this course challenging and really test your iron game. You will get in trouble trying to over power the course strategy is the key. I was expecting a lot better condition of the course With the pricing. Greens could be rolled a lot tighter. It was very rough for this type of course

Yes, will play again!

Female friendly course and staff! Meandering through the marsh - the layout is interesting and playable. This is probably not an ideal 2-handicapper long hitter course, but a great vacation enjoyable site. And, everyone on staff is amazing! Hope to see you again soon, BTW - great shop selections!

Still a Must Play

Still a nice course. Today the greens were sandy from them aerating a few days ago. The course had some wet areas due to the last night rain but it really didn’t come into play. Layout is just fantastic and the staff is great! All the guys are so very nice and want you to enjoy your round. This is still a MUST play when in Shallotte. Thanks again! See you next year!

Arnies Revenge

I have played here a few times, great layout. The course was in very good shape, greens aeration healed with a few bumps. Greens were on the slow side, the last three holes 16-18 provide one of the best finishes in the area. I would recommend this course.

Very Tough When Windy

13 Handicap - Shot 93 with an 8, a 9, and an 11! #9 with this much wind should be outlawed. What a really nice course (sand traps need some work) and staff. Great time had by all. Will play every year we come down.

Rivers Edge Is Perfect

This is a challenging course with incredible views unlike any other in the Myrtle Beach and Wilmington areas. The course meanders around the Shallotte River. It also has Arnie's Revenge -- the 9th hole that Arnie designed requiring you to place three precise shots. If you double bogey this hole, don't worry. You are not alone. It will be a great discussion after the round. Check out our video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acICLK1OLqo&t=117s

A must-play while in North Myrtle Beach

I had heard about this course while being on vacation in NMB from some of the locals I was playing with. I specifically asked them for a list of courses that had a "wow factor." This course did not disappoint. There are several holes that play along and/or into the marsh where the greens are on a small peninsula surrounded by marshland. The number 9 and 18 holes are truly breathtaking. This course is for those people who like to play "target golf" even though there is something here for all handicap levels. Fairways were kept in excellent condition. There are several undulating greens which were in excellent shape. Bunkers happened to be washed out from a torrential rain earlier in the week.
