River Oaks Golf Club - Bear/Fox
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.

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.
