River Oaks Plantation opened in 1987, offering three nine-hole courses spread out over an 800-acre property, River Oaks provides a great golf getaway for a day for golfers of all skill levels.
Built on a former wildlife preserve across the Intracoastal Waterway from Myrtle Beach, River Oaks Golf Plantation feels like a world away from the hectic pace of the real world.
These layouts are named for native wildlife to the property - the Bear, Fox and Otter courses. Pick two for a round of 18 or make a day of it and play all three.
Designed by renowned architects Tom Jackson and Gene Hamm, these 27 championship holes present golfers with a true test of golf in an awe-inspiring setting of dense pine forest and pristine wetlands.
The greens are made up of Ultra Dwarf Bermuda and combined with natural and man-made hazards along with the well-manicured fairways and greens have made River Oaks a popular spot among visiting and local golfers. The course has a rating of 72.5 and a slope of 125. These challenge the best golfers.
If you are looking for a good golf school, The Golf School of Myrtle Beach offers classes and lessons right on property. There is also a driving and putting range for you to practice before you go out on the course.
If you are under the age of 16 and playing with an adult, you play for free.
There is a snack grill offering sandwiches, hot dogs, snacks and beverages for purchase.
River Oaks Golf is located in central Myrtle Beach at 831 River Oaks Drive in Myrtle Beach. For more information please visit www.myrtlebeachgolf.com.
