River Oaks Golf Club - Otter/Bear
River Oaks Golf Club in Myrtle Beach is home to 27 holes of championship golf. The course sprawls across a former nature preserve that sits just outside the Myrtle Beach city limits. In 2009, the course underwent a major renovation that removed almost 4,600 trees, burying the remaining stumps underneath mounds of dirt and sand. This opened up the layout while adding an interesting up-and-down to the course that it never had before. The holes are divided into three nines that provide different 18-hole combinations. Each of the nines is named after a different animal that makes up the course's resident wildlife: Fox, Otter, and Bear. River Oaks' Otter/Bear combination is the longest course of the three available options. You'll find water coming into play on nearly every hole and there are several strategically placed bunkers to be found along the greens.

What you see what you get !
Fair course not expensive. Slow pace for a Monday in October 4h45 !
Very friendly starter. Course in great shape. Cart girl was excellent. Slow round but great Sunday afternoon.
Girls golf trip
Course was great the pace was slow as it was booked solid They tried to clear it up so the second nine was better We enjoyed the layout and course fun day and good course for money
Condition of course
Course was very wet. Mist bunkers were under water. Very mushy. My feet got covered in ants on two holes, that bite, and I wasn't in high grass or woods. Just in tge ruff around fairways.. They should consider spraying for ants.
I really enjoyed this course. The fairways and greens are in good condition. This was my first time playing Bermuda grass, so that was a bit of a challenge, the ball just drops out of site
No very friendly
Course manager very shirt when He saw that we were golf now users. All that we were doing was questioning play because there was supposed to be lightning coming in. He said it really doesn’t matter because we have to try to cancel through golf now and if they call and ask if the course is open he’s going to tell them yes. We showed up luckily the lightning held off we got around in. The regular Clark was very accommodating
Just Good Folks and Course
All of the staff was fabulous!
Would highly recommend this course.
This was my 2nd time here. I’d been here years ago and wasn’t pleased with course conditions. On this trip I thought I’d give it another try. Conditions were a bit better but overall it was disappointing. Otter side is a rather mundane 9 holes but standing water in traps made them unplayable. Muddy fairways and beat up tee boxes. Greens were ok. The fox side has some really neat holes. Not as much mud but bunkers still unplayable. I’ve done it twice so I’m all set. On positive note staff is very friendly
Our twosome took over 4 hours to play because they overbook and stack players. Nobody waved us through so apparently they have 0 golf etiquette! We traveled from out of state and now we know to avoid this course in the future.
Played 10/03/2021, Small Pro shop Limited
Food options Pre-wraped cold sandwiches and hot dogs. Course in good condition. Fairly nice
Greens, true and fairly fast.Staff excellent.
Playable Track, Good Value
A fun course that is in pretty good shape. Bermuda grass fairways and greens. Lies were tight in the fairways due to cart traffic. Bermuda rough is thick but not overly penalizing. Several water hazards and bunkers to negotiate.
Staff was friendly. Pace of play was good on the Otter nine (1:50), but slowed considerably on the Fox nine (2:30). Took our threesome 4 hours, 20 minutes to finish the round.
