Led by the architect who restored “The Granddaddy” at Pine Lakes Country Club, the recent $1.8 million renovation of River Oaks Golf Plantation has been met with an enthusiastic “thumbs up” from its visiting golfers. Join us on a dynamic video and hole-by-hole tour of Craig Schreiner’s latest handiwork.
As with all time-proven designs, River Oaks Golf Plantation continues to evolve as one of the area’s most well-known courses to play and enjoy. Since opening more than three decades ago in 1987, this Gene Hamm and Tom Jackson design continues to build on its legacy as Myrtle Beach’s ‘fun’ golf experience.
With 27 holes, players enjoy the ever-changing challenge from combining their day’s play between the Fox, Otter and Bear nines. Coined from the wildlife found on property, these three nines have benefited from a recent $1.8 million renovation by local architect Craig Schreiner, resulting in new greens, cart paths and the restoration of the originally-intended sight lines with the removal of more than 4,000 trees.
As one of the area’s first courses to install Ultradwarf Champion Bermuda, players will find smooth, true putting surfaces year-round. The most scenic portion of River Oaks Golf Plantation includes the third and fourth holes on the Fox nine, coming out to the Intracoastal Waterway providing long water views from both the third green and fourth tee box.
Nostalgic iron bridges connect all three nines through more than 230 acres of beautiful Carolina woodlands. Recipient of the 2015 Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association “Golf Course of the Year” Award, River Oaks Golf Plantation prides itself in offering a great value while promoting youth involvement in the game, proudly supporting the “juniors play free” initiative.
With its centralized location in the heart of Myrtle Beach just minutes from its world-famous, white sandy beaches and convenient access to the airport, River Oaks Golf Plantation remains the heartbeat of Myrtle Beach golf.
