River Plantation Country Club
Proudly managed by Eagle Golf, River Plantation Country Club is the place to create new golfing experiences every time because of the three separate 9 hole courses you will find here -- the Augusta, the Biloxi and the Charleston. Often you can pick out which nines you want to play, but sometimes it’s set by the course. On Saturday mornings, for example, golfers start on all three nines in order to keep up the pace of play, which is usually very fast on this course.
The lofty trees that line this championship course turn the fairways into narrow pathways for your ball. It all makes for a challenging round that will test your use of all your clubs and your ability to manage the course. For many golfers, the creeks that run parallel to fairways and sometimes cross them will require making lay-up shots along the way. You’ll have lots of chances here to lose your ball in the hazards. According to the head golf professional Jeff Smejkal, there are some par 5s that the distance hitters can reach in two shots, but they run the risk of landing in the water.
Greens and tees here are now in tip-top shape for the meticulous golfer. When the course was renovated recently, the greens and tees were updated. There is now Tiff Eagle Bermuda on the greens and Tiff Sport Bermuda on the tees. Some greens were also elevated.
