River Falls Golf Plantation in Duncan is a Gary Player Signature Course. Its location makes it convenient for meeting up with people coming from Asheville, Columbia, Atlanta, or Charlotte. The golf course is also just minutes away from downtown Greenville. The narrow layout will test the accuracy and shot making abilities of even the best golfers. Rolling hills provide a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. Water hazards come into play frequently and there are also strategically placed bunkers framing the greens and fairways. Player crafted a golf course that is both formidable and scenic. The abundance of mature trees helped him achieve this. He carefully wove River Falls Golf Plantation through the mature forests, allowing the trees to surround the holes, giving each a secluded and peaceful feel.

Not all it’s cracked up to be, not worth the price of admission

For 50 dollars for 18 holes you would expect a lot better. Decent layout but the course conditions were questionable. Played at way better courses in the area for way less than the price here.

Fair Challenge

Friendly and helpful staff. Fairly narrow fairways requiring accuracy off the tee. Not overly long, but some blind shots and several doglegs to keep you focused. Greens were a little rough and slow. Played with some guys that play there regularly, they said condition of greens was unusual. Overall a course I will enjoy returning to.

Course is in great shape

This is probably the bast shape I've seen this course In the last couple of years. Greens should be perfect in a couple of weeks since they've punched them

Great Layout

This Gary Player design had a great layout. Greens weren’t in the best shape due to the heat but that is to be expected in the south.

Only the Front side was open - AERATING back

Front side was All that was open. Aerating the back today.. Did the front side yesterday. It would have been nice to have known aerating was going on before booking a round. That said - the pro shop was extremely friendly. Got me right out and told me if I had any issues when turning ( going back to first tee ) let him know. First time playing here in like 5 years. I remembered a couple of interesting holes here but they are on the back and did not play them today. Give it a couple weeks and give them a try.

Ain’t worth a penny

Price is to high for a course that looks and feels like a goat track. Carts kept messing up and wouldn’t go. Starter had a huge attitude that groups in front were even complaining about. The pace of play was unbelievably slow. Definitely needs a different land maintenance team.

Great course

Layout is interesting and challenging enough to keep you engaged. Course is in great shape minus a few areas (nothing major, just common stuff with public courses). The hazard areas could use some clearing/thinning. Staff is very friendly, range in great shape (heavily used), bar staff is friendly. The only drawback is a limited selection of drinks/food at the bar afterwards.

Average Course

The course has some gimmicky holes and there is damage/loss to portions of about half the greens. The range and putting green were in good condition.
