Rating 73.1

River Oaks Golf Club boasts three different nine-hole courses: the Bear, Fox, and Otter. Carefully carved from a former nature preserve, the courses sprawl across a scenic stretch of the Intracoastal with a convenient location that is just minutes from downtown Myrtle Beach. The nines, which are named after the different wildlife that call the club home, each have a unique character and different set of challenges and they can be mixed and matched to create different 18-hole combinations. The Bear/Fox golf course provides a challenging test with a front nine where water comes into play on almost every hole, including an almost-island green on the par-3 fourth. The Fox nine, the shortest of the three at 3,346 yards, gives you a chance to recover your score with some risk-reward opportunities.

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!
