River Oaks Golf Plantation
great price and good condition for winter
Golfnow has $20+booking fee per person which was great deal for foursome. Course was relatively wet due to rainy days, and pace of play gets a bit slower, but no reason to hurry when you are in vacation. Played Fox and Bear, Fox was above average and good for warm up, Bear has more waters and more challenging (if you don't know the course well). Overall, very satisfied for the start of golf trip with great price.

River oaks in February
Played River Oaks for the first time in 15 years. Golf now had a $30 for 18 and it was a great bargain. Just wanted to get away from the snow and cold of northeast so booked a long weekend in myrtle. I always liked the layout of the 3 nines. But the Bear remains my favorite. Great course to start your golf trip with or to get out and swing the clubs.

Played Bear-Otter on a chilly but sunny day. Course very wet, cart path only which was a hassle. Layout has potential, lots of water and it helps know where it is ahead of time... Greens OK for winter. Price right

The course was a nice layout close to Myrtle Beach area. The greens were fast but in nice shape. The fairways retained water and had wet areas, overall not a bad track for the price. The only downside was the extremely slow play. My wife and I played behind a three some that had no business playing from the white tees. One player hit three balls off the first tee (there were two foursomes behind us waiting). This player could barely walk to his ball and played an extra ball around the greens. It took us three hours to complete the first nine. We passed them at the turn and completed our round within five hours.

Golf in February
I've played nicer courses but it is February and I'm Canadian so it was great to get out. Staff was friendly and professional. I'd like to come back in a couple of months and see what the course is like. Overall it was enjoyable.

Greens made to look Green!
The teeing areas were in good condition the fairways had been cut too short the greens were poor........ They had sprayed a green dye to cover up poor quality turf. Enough said! I could not recommend this course to anyone but a starter in the game.

Bet it's better dry
This is one of the better courses on the strand. It was cart path only because it was wet. The greens were in great shape and they all have nice undulations and roll true. When dry I assume the fairways would give better roll but that's just the nature of the beast. Enough water hazards throughout but not too many that you have to pinpoint every shot. Fairways are fairly large and forgiving. Good experience.
