River Oaks Golf Plantation
This establishment has three 9 hole courses that are in need of major repair. Course needs cart path paved.
Management should adjust pricing due to course under repair. Or atleast notify players about the repairs. Second to last green was vandalized and we were not told that the green had been modified. They just dug a hole in front of the green and that was it. Not worth the money. Lot more nice courses is Myrtle Beach.

Good place to play. Farways good the greens still were not back after being aerated a few weeks ago. But still ok.

I now know why rates were lowered!
This course has potential, however I feel that because of the recently aerated greens and poorly maintained bunkers it lost some key points. From the back tees it's not too long and manageable off most tees. Occasional burnt out spots on some holes.

Nice course with an awesome staff
Played Bear & Otter while on vacation. It was a great round and the staff was courteous and accommodating. Unfortunately vandals damage one hole the previous evening. A temporary hole was set up and a crew was hard at work repairing the damaged green.

Played there last year and it was ok. This year? Not so much! Greens very spotty. They had punched them but still no grass two weeks later. Fairways were ok but not cut. Pace of play was extremely slow. 4 groups on one hole !
The employees are great. Could use some maintaining!

Is anyone around?
The greeting by the gentlemen that was unloading our bags was lack luster. He did not provide us with any information or point us in the right direction to the club house. We walked in to a very confusing club house/ food stand. No real pro shop at facility just a couple of counters. Inside we bought tokens for the driving range that was a hike away and had to wait 20 minutes to pay for a Gatorade. Once we got started in our round they gave us an extra person in our group to tag along. The pace of play on the front nine was moderate. Once we got to the back nine, Gertrude and the ladies were out for a Sunday round and would not let us play through. The back nine was agonizing and no ranger in sight to help speed things up. The course was in fair condition but If you miss the fairway it was hard to find a lie with any grass. Greens putted true and held most shots. The course didn't seem to have a signature hole and lacked an awe factor. It was a very cookie cutter course that seemed all too familiar . Forgot to mention no beverage cart and hard to find yardage markers.... I unfortunately forgot to bring my gps that day

Great course for the money
I played this course for the first time and only played 9 holes. The pace of play was fantastic and the course was nice but the greens were a little run down. Other than that it was definitely worth playing and will go back again.
