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.

River Oaks first time playing

The people/Staff were really nice, The greens had been recently aerated and were bumpy. Some small greens with slopes that made reading them for the first time a little difficult. Length was fine, I played from the White Tees ( 78 years old).. I had fun.

Fox Course - Fast Nine

Facility was very busy, but the staff was still friendly and accommodating .

We were only playing 9 and wanted to play the Fox. No problem The starter found a break and worked us in. Pace of play was excellent, no waiting.

Easy track in good condition for this time of year, Good course for a warmup after a Northern Covid Winter.

Slow play.

We played behind 2 foursomes that were very deliberate. Should have play at least one tee up. At hole 10, a twosome drove ahead of us and started playing. We called a very dis-interested pro shop and after much conversation he said a ranger would be sent out. They never showed up. Back nine took 3 hours.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

We played as a twosome which was very nice. First 9 was on the Bear Course which was in bad condition, muddy and bad turf. Second 9 was on the Fox Course which was in better condition. In general they need to put up signs and yardage markers that are accurate. Many times the scorecard yardage was WAY off and once you're in the fairway there is no way to check distances!

Decent Round

I play River Oaks at least 4-5 times a year. I enjoy the course and normally the pace of play is decent. I can't blame them for some players not displaying etiquette. I normally play as a single and don't expect anyone to let me play through, especially if someone is in front of them. But if you have 4 people, and ALL of you take 2 swings off of each tee, and spend an average of 1o minutes trying to get to the green, maybe you should consider letting faster players through. The marshall let me down on this round...
