of the courses we played this was my personal favorite. everyone working at the course made me feel like they were really glad we were there. course is fair and certainly gives you the impression you can tame it. i didn't. this is one course i will definitely be going back to.

If you are playing North....check this one out.
Another enjoyable course. Reasonably open and fair. In great shape both times I played it. Challenging but fair. An easy drive from North MB. Recommended!

We have played this course a few times. It is a fun course to play and for us plays like a links course, in that you have to hit to key positions. Great course to have on your roster of courses to play.

Good course with some nice holes and difficult fairways. Greens are tough.
#14 - Steve Slowick - 03/27/2014 - 15:59
nice shape conditions were good. very tight fairways must be accurate off the tee. can play as short or as long as you like.
#13 - greg - 03/05/2014 - 18:12
STAY OUT OF THE ROUGH!! or plan a longer round looking for your ball. If you stay on the fairways and get to the greens you will absolutely love it.
#12 - William Miller - 09/13/2013 - 17:21
Fair course. Not great but clean and would play it again.
#11 - Gary Fraley - 03/24/2013 - 18:20
nice course
course was nice fairways a little tight but in good condition played in around 4 hrs. nice pace
#10 - greg - 03/03/2013 - 17:25
River Hills is a good course. Would rate it good for the price and the staff know how to get the course moving. Saw a lot of locals there so that says something.

Did You Know.......
That 2012 Greenbrier Classic winner Ted Potter Jr. has the course record at River Hills Country Club with a 64.

Course was in very good shape from tee to green. Staff and amenities were spot on. This can be a tough course for an average golfer. Manage your expectations and you'll have a good time.
#7 - Steve - 07/16/2012 - 16:22
Very good course
This course says it all in its name, it has alot of water and alot of hills. It rained hard the day we played, so it was hard to get a great grasp but I really enjoyed the course and the people were very nice.
#6 - Matt - 06/18/2012 - 05:26
Always play this course
Dont miss this gem.
#5 - Roger - 06/13/2012 - 16:05
Service was outstanding. The greens had just been aerated so they were not good but the rest of the course was pretty,challenging, and very fun to play.
#4 - Steve - 06/03/2012 - 19:39
GREAT Course!
I've played quite a few golf courses in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, and River Hills golf course has to be one of my absolute favorites! Challenging layout, but fair enough to keep it fun for the average golfer. Greens were running very fast, but were in excellent shape, as well as the rest of the course.

Will definitely be playing this golf course again....and again.....and again. If you have yet to play it, you should be adding River Hills to your golf bucket list.

Day 2 of a 5-day golf vacation. Early start found us off to the races to a challenging but fair day. The layout was challenging, but extremely fair. Unfortunately, the greens had been aireated one week prior, so much of the day was frustating as we putted through sandy greens. The mixture of easy, medium and challenging holes kept the round interesting. All in all, a 7 rating on a 10 scale.
