new to Brunswick county, 2nd time here in 2 months. great track. only reason to not give it a 5 is that greens were very furry. good shape but slow. pace was slow, seemed to be double booking, sending people of back and front and criss-crossing, led to a slow round. excellent design, tough, played from 6300 tees. front 9, a bit long, back 9 a bit short. finishing 3 holes are remarkable, along the marsh. not much room for error off tees and on approach shots. #9 is one of toughest holes in the area. very fair value. will play again and again.

just played it again (4.12.23). Was in poor condition, was mislead by the clubhouse on greens conditions. they were awful - I could have and would have played elsewhere. it has great potential but seems like whenever I play it, is does not meet that potential each time, sadly.

I really like this course, it has a good layout, conditions are good and the scenery is very appealing. It is certainly one of the better courses in the Myrtle area.

The holes along the Shallotte River offer scenic vistas. Clubhouse has a great deck to watch golfers on the 9th and 18th hole.

awful condition for the price

Was told this was one of the gems of the area and boy was I ever disappointed! This being an extremely challenging course in the first place to have fairways that were burnt up and hard as concrete made it 1000% harder. Shots that should have held up in a fairway just rolled like they had been shot out of a cannon and into trouble made the round very disappointing. The sad part was the greens were in great shape but having been penalized for the fairways being rock hard and getting you into trouble meant scoring well was out the window. Certainly will not be back at this course..

I hate hearing this and being taken advantage of is the paying public. If quality is dropping, then lower your pricing until you get your act together. Courses that are five star should be rewarded, courses that are less should adjust the pricing accordingly. It’s one thing to pay 40 and pay an average course, it’s another thing to pay 95 and it’s just an average of course

Good shape, but soft conditions.

Course in great shape, rain from the night before caused the course to be very soft. Good shape, one of my favorites to play in the area. Greens rolled true and were great.

Double-teeing slowed our round to a crawl

Loved the first nine we played. It was after a soaking rain but the holes were awesome. Then at the turn we waited over a half-hour for the groups to tee off on the other nine and the pace was a snail's pace. Loved the holes but nothing was done about the slow play. Frustrating.

The views!

The 2 members of our group that were high handicappers hated this course because of the difficulty of the shots required. I think some of it had to do with the fact there were 6 inches of rain 2 nights before and there was little to no roll. Made the course long!

The low handicappers were impressed with the course. As expected from an Arnold Palmer Design, there were holes that required some shot making. 8,9,11, 15-18 offered incredible views.

Greens were a little slower than the 2 other courses we played in the area, but still were in great condition.

7 out of 10

I live in Holden Beach, NC and played most of the Carolina costal courses. Rivers Edge is my favorite. A beautiful course, great layout and it was in great shape. Every hole is unique and different, not to mention the views. Awesome. Now the bad (why it's 7 out of 10). They start the morning off the front and back. No problem. When we hit the turn, it was backed up. 2 hours 10 minutes for the first 9 holes (very good pace), 3 hours for the next nine (unacceptable). There seems to be a trend at courses allowing slow players to hold up the course instead of letting groups play through. Bottom line is I will be playing there again and again. Hopefully they can straighten out their act regarding pace.

Course management is key at Rivers Edge

I have played this course several times and really enjoy the layout. You are forced to use every club in your bag. I tend to try to overpower courses with my driver. That is not the best approach at Rivers Edge. The greens were very good, as were the fairways. Overall, it is a very scenic course and a true test of your golf abilities. The staff was very friendly, especially the starter.

Longest round ever!

Taking 5 1/2 hours to play a round of golf is ridiculous. No ranger on the course trying to improve pace of play teetimes were too close together for the amount of players out there. Also, saw the cart girl twice in the first nine holes and then never saw her on the back nine I understand with COVID-19 going on but they should at least made an attempt to put bottled water out there every few holes or something for the players since the court girl was not around frequently enough. Course is not friendly if you are a female golfer because there are lack of restrooms out on the course. My wife cannot pee on a tree like I can.

Hello, Christophe. Thank you for taking the time to review the course. We would like to apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve but with an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. Also, we would like to apologize for the inconvenience with the restrooms. Please know that we will continue to look for ways to improve and use your comments as guidance to do so. Thank you for playing Rivers Edge Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.

Love it

Played this course twice in the last year. Absolutely love it. Fairways are like carpet, greens are good and true. Practice area is nice. Incredible views and it has some great holes and layouts. A few of the tee boxes were just okay but most were great. Absolutely a must play in the area. Don’t see another course around being any better. Highly recommend.

Some fun holes

Greens were a disappointment for such a highly rated course. Bumpy and slow. Some holes were really neat and quite difficult. Not an easy track for below average golfers.

I had the most fun with my before unknown playing partners today. It was a bit damp in spots but I loved the layout. The 9th hole is something.
