This course is in the Golfnow.com tee time network. 60% discounts off tee times. The only course in Myrtle Beach that's in it.

Played the Bear and Fox in 15mph with 30mph gusts I guess. Needed 2 clubs extra at times. Better take plenty of balls, this course swallowed them. The course looked worse for wear and I had to take the first one back as it shook badly. The second one was not much better. The course is interesting and worth playing, but needs some love and care - greens were very sandy and bare, although they ran fairly true!

Reallynice course for the money. Played there 8 times in pril and May. Much better conditions than a few years ago.

Say "River Oaks" to many Myrtle Beach visitors and they're likely to give you a quizzical look. Say "World Tour golf links" and you get a far-away look with a knowing smile. River Oaks has the misfortune of being the neighbor of one of the "big three" in Myrtle Beach. It's still a nice play. They are currently (08/07) re-doing the greens on the otter and the fox courses (it is a 27 hole facility). In the past, I'd considered the staff at River Oaks to be a bit snooty-(we stay there every year and play it a lot). It seems as though the greens aren't the only thing changing though. I was down for the World Golf Amateur (08/07) and had a chance to play the bear course a couple of times as a warm up. Staff were friendly, and course conditions on the bear were reasonable, considering the drought conditions and water restrictions Myrtle Beach has imposed. You could do a lot worse in Myrtle Beach than River Oaks, and I'd go so far as to recommend you use it as one of the cheaper courses to round out your golf package. 27 holes is perfect when 18 just isn't enough and 36 is too many.
