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.

Beautiful Course to Challenge Your Skills

The course was in amazing shape with deep dark green grass and excellent greens. Blazing hot and still very little course damage from the sun. My only complaint is that I'm not quite skilled enough to shoot well there yet! But I'll get there and this will be (and already is) one of my favorite courses in the area.

Great course

Great course and very nice staff. Pace of play was a bit of a problem. Got there at 2p to tee off and 12 people were on number 1? Asked to start on 10 but got behind 2 foursomes that wouldn’t let our twosome play through. Ended up skipping 2 holes to get by then and prevent a 5 hour round.

Used a Rental Set

Was in town on business with two other people. We rented clubs and that was a disaster. Super old mixed bag and my friend who was a lefty they didn’t have a putter for… he did good right handed. Other than that, the staff was great, the course was really fun (lots of elevated tee shots) and in good condition. Would be tough to walk and no way a cart girl could get around there.

Recommend for those who have their sticks with them.

Poor conditions for such a nice course

The fairways are very hard and dry lots of dead spots. This course needs a lot more moisture on the fairways as well as most greens. It is hard seeing such a well designed and course turn into what it is right now. A more fair price for this course would be about 35$ in its condition and not 43$
