About this Golf Course
Rivers Edge Golf Club is across the Carolina border in Shallotte, N.C., but it is well worth the 30-minute drive north of Myrtle Beach.
Designed by legendary golfer/architect Arnold Palmer, Rivers Edge is a true treasure of the North Carolina coast and a crown jewel in the state’s rich golf community.
Built on a pristine piece of property on the banks and bluffs of the Shallotte River, golfers who enjoy a tough challenge in a scenic setting give rave reviews of their rounds at Rivers Edge.
So do various golf publications, such as Golf Digest, which listed Rivers Edge as one of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” in 2005 and 2007. GolfWeek also ranked it the No. 5 course in the Tar Heel State.
With six of the 18 holes sitting high on bluffs overlooking the river, this course utilizes natural changes in elevation and the diverse terrain to create a one-of-a-kind golf experience.
