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.

Over priced for condition

Fairways and greens okay, trap and tee conditions deteriorating with each time I've played here...too bad it's a lovely challenging layout. Will wait to try again to give new management a chance to sink some money into the course

Just OK

Greens where very slow but consistent, bonkers poor and not maintained, could be from the flooding, but enough time has passed to do repairs.

Rivers Edge

This was a very nice course. We thought it was one of the nicest courses we have played. Our only issue was the pace of play. We were waiting for groups ahead of us all day. Our round took over five hours.

Great value for a nicer course

Coming off 2 hurricanes and previous day's rain, the course was very wet but still playable. Sand traps have been devastated and need to be refilled with sand. Course layout is challenging but fair with some spectacular views over the marshes and river. For the price of $56 it is a great value I would play it again.

Escaped Much of Florence - Good Shape

Considering that Hurricane Florence raked the Brunswick County coastline, this course is in remarkably good shape. Fairways and greens are in very good shape. Staff is always friendly here and accommodating. I fully expected the Shallotte River to have crushed several holes along the marsh -- didn't happen. Many Brunswick County courses were closed following the storm, River's Edge barely skipped a beat. Great time to play it now.

Rivers edge

Have played this course many times and always enjoyed the layout. The winter kill that affected other coursew was no so noticeable here course was in good condition and the greens were true. Bag drop staff always friendly and accommodating. I was a single and originally paired with a couple but before I teeed it up the starter asked if I would rather play with 2 other golfers It worked out great for me. Thanks to all the staff

A great time!

The course was in very good condition in spite of all the rain the area has had in the past few weeks. Challenging layout that penalizes the stray shot. Great variety of shots and beautiful views on nearly every hole. With so many courses to choose from in the area, I rarely play the same course twice but I may have to make an exception for River Edge!

On the upswing

There is a different momentum at Rivers Edge since my last visit. They have Greens, good fairways, and reasonable rough. The bunkers are anything BUT! They all need major work as in re-establishing drainage lines, removing the "sand" and bring local beach sand in place of what is present. They have standing water in many when it has not rained in a week and day time temps in the 90's. Hopefully the increase in play will produce funds for a total bunker renovations. Also we noticed many pine tree removed which makes for a more playable course. Carts are new but provide a revenue stream if you wish to use the yardage feature. Restaurant /bar staff are terrific and he sandwiches excellent. Pace of play was not an issue with the summer heat awaiting at tee off.

Great Golf Course

It is a must play when you are in the Ocean Isle Beach or Holden Beach area. Great value for the money. The golf carts are awesome. I listened to music the entire round and did not have to drain the battery on my phone. The GPS feature also helped a lot.
