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.

The woman in the pro shop could not find my Golfnow booking and was somewhat adversarial. Once I showed her my confirmation email, she then overcharged me. When I brought this to her attention, she provided the overcharged amount along with stating, “have a good time at Walmart.” Unacceptable and insulting behavior. She acted like I was a bother from the time I walked in. The rest of the staff could not have been more professional. Watch out for the bad apple blond.

Great Hot Deal price led us to this fantastic course. With so many options in Myrtle Beach area, the Hot Deal was too good to pass up despite being 45 minute drive from North Myrtle Beach. Course was in good shape except for two greens, but pins were positioned in healthy grass areas. Loved the layout!! Just about every hole is scenic. GPS in golf carts is extremely helpful!! Would definitely recommend playing here.

Excellent course. Great value, especially if you get the Hot Deal. The staff was extremely friendly and great help. The carts are new with integrated GPS in them. I don’t mean a bushnell GPS strapped to the cart, I mean a GPS with a large screen built into the cart. It also plays slacker radio or you can hook up your phone via Bluetooth and play it through the speakers built into the cart. USB charging ports for your phone are also available.

We ran into two issues on the course. The entire course is in emasculate condition except for the greens of 17 and 9. Winter hit them pretty hard but from what I understand most golf courses in the area have more than 2 greens that are affected.

The other issue was pace of play. Not a single marshall there to keep pace so instead of waiting we skipped and went to the back nine and played that nine then came back and finished up the last three on the front. Able to finish in about 3 hours. Would have been 4-5 had we not skipped ahead.

All in all a great deal and a nice place to play golf.

As for the pace of play, we apologize if the pace was slower than normal on the front. Next time, give us a call in the pro shop and we'll see what we can do. Thanks again and we hope to see you out here for another round soon.

Course is in great condition except for two greens, which are terrible from winter kill, and is a very excellent value when on hot deals. GPS added to cart in the past month offers some good info about course layout, but is annoying with needless messages. Course is not well marked.

River’s Edge is THE GEM in the Myrtle Beach area. The course design offers challenging golf for all levels of golfers. Every hole offers beautiful views and utilizes the terrain to make a great day of golf. GPS in the cart is state of the art. Visited the course in May and the conditions were fantastic. This course is a MUST PLAY! Club house & pro shop are top notch. Thanks ARNIE for making this gem community & golf experience available to enjoy.

An excellent course. Shot placement required. If he winds blowing don’t go for the 9th green, take the closest area on the right, save your score! Greens were slow, but rolled true. Fairways were tight, but green. Entire course well maintained. Play it if you’re in the area

I’m from the UK and was over here in September last year and it was a must play course. The condition then was great. I don’t know what’s happened since September but did read in the clubhouse that a renovation and tree removal programme was under way in March of this year. That didn’t cover the total loss of the green at the spectacular 9th. hole..I don’t know what happened there perhaps it was the unexpected snow in the winter that killed it off? Having travelled 4000 miles from the UK and the expectation of playing the course it was a great disappointment. That said I will return again in September and play those spectacular holes along the salt marshes. Pace of play is also an issue but then it’s a popular course but course marshals need to keep players on time and any groups that hold others should be told to,stand aside and let players that are quicker through. Sadly this is not only the case at Rivers Edge but through out Myrtle Beach courses. There seems to be scant regard for the pace of play etiquette and it is always poorly policed. Apparently it is always the people in front or a group two holes in front. Both the Usga and the R&A want to improve pace of play to encourage more people to play well they better not come to the Beach!

The staff at RE could not be more welcoming or helpful, (the burgers by the way were excellent and only 9.95 including a beer and chips! ) but that can never make up for a five hour round and a course in somewhat poor condition.
