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.

First time playing this course. Every staff member we encountered was very professional and happy to help or provide information. The greens looked and putted great. Course was challenging and fun.
This course offered a good value for the price. Staff were extremely nice and got us out 45 minutes early with the threat of rain coming later.
One thing missing
Good fun course. The one thing missing for a first timer was pictures of the hole/layout. Nothing in boxes and black and white pics on scorecard were not helpful. Played Bear and Fox. Will go back to play Otter!
First win in SC
Great day on the course...staff very friendly & helpful and course was in great shape! Thanks River Oaks!
Nice layout. Pretty good condition. Greens rolled true but were a little slow. Very friendly staff. I would definitely play again.
