“Hackers Heaven”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

If you want to have a round where having a few beers is the priority, this is the place for you. Course condition is below average for the area. Layout is somewhat interesting. Just avoid the traps as they were hard pan. It had rained heavily the week before, but c'mon that's enough time to get them fluffed up.

“We thought the place was great”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

Reading through some of the negative reviews about River Oaks surprised me as we found that all three nine hole courses played fair and were even picturesque in places. I'm sure there are better courses in Myrtle but speaking for this one, they got us off about 10 minutes before tee time, and we had no groups slowing us down, nor pressing us from behind. The cart guy/starter, the office staff, and the staff member at the snack bar, were all quite friendly and helpful as well. We stayed on site at the River Oaks condos and enjoyed both the condo and the golf

“A Little Better than Last time”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

Not your top end course. If you are expecting immaculate conditions this is not for you. I've played here several times and the grass is a little thin the bunkers are in bad shape and things like that. But the layout is interesting, the course is fun with just the right amount of challenge, it's rarely crowded, and the price is right. If you are an average golfer this a great place for your first round at the beach.

“Needs some help, but still fun”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

We went on a sunny pleasant afternoon, but there was still lots of standing water in many of the sand traps - poor drainage. Some of the hole layout placards were missing, and it's just a rusty pole sticking out of the ground (seems like a simple fix)? They were actively trimming shrubs and cleaning around us as we played, but the staff were as non-intrusive as possible. Pro Shop and Attendants very pleasant and helpful. Would probably come back if others wanted to play there, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

“End of summer outing.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Played with my so on the 3rd. Course in good shape, bunkers need attention, greens good. Played in 3.5 hrs and could have played faster if the regulars would have let us through. For Myrtle Beach, I'd give it a 6.
