We played golf at River Hills and it was absolutely awesome. The course is in great condition and the views are amazing and breathtaking. One of the prettiest courses, if not the prettiest, I have every played. As we arrived at another course the next morning, our friend realized that he left a jacket and hat behind at River Hills....

Our group of 16 played there Thursday 16-October. I agree 100% with the other reviewer that you are made to feel welcome from the minute you step onto the property! Great friendly staff! The course is very interesting with some angles that you need to figure out on the drive.... "How much should I cut off?" Green were in nice... More

We were made very welcome at rivers edge and the starter explained the way to play this course which was very helpful. This Arnold Palmer course is great if only to play the par 5 ninth.Apparently it's the hardest hole in Carolina. when we got back to the clubhouse the staff just couldn't do enough for us and served food...

Staff are very friendly.. Visit five to six times a year and Timmy greets us with a warm smile and hello each time we come. Course is always in good shape, challenging and picturesque.

Very good and very challenging course played as part of the World Am competition. Not for your average golfer. Very difficult holes and #9 was a beast. Not for faint of heart.

This is a very pretty and picturesque course! There's a ton of hazards and water all over the place. It's certainly a shotmakers course with blind shots galore. The greens were great! Only downfall was that lots of areas were soggy but that's to be expected with the amount of rainfall this area has gotten this Summer. Also, I would... More

I have played this course many times and was concerned about the condition of the greens this spring. In the last few weeks, with the help of the warm weather and some TLC, the greens are back. With the numerous courses in the area, I still find this to be one of top courses. It's not only challenging but the... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my round at River's Edge as the staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. The course was in great condition and the greens were fast and smooth. However the left edge of the 9th green seems to have sunk partway. Any ball that is hit to the middle of the green quickly rolls off the island green and... More

Hollis Cross, Thank you for the compliments on our Facility. I can assure you that the 9th green is in fine condition. There is a progressive slope on each side of green. This hole was designed by Arnie himself to be the true test of golfers ability to control 3 good shots. We look forward to seeing you again at... More

The greens are in rough shape or this is 5 stars all the way! When the greens are in it is tough to beat this course! Scenic views and just the right mix of easy and challenging holes. Good food at the turn! This is a must play for both locals and out of towners!

KosMoDog, Thank you for the kind words on our Facility. We agree, it is tough to beat this layout and clubhouse when it comes to difficulty and scenery. All greens are in fine shape as we have completed our 2nd Summer Aeration and are prepped to finish out the year strong. This winter was very harsh on the Paspalum Greens... More
