Greetings!

On this magnificent Tuesday, May 10, 2022, beautiful sunshine, temperature at 24 degrees Celsius, and winds of up to 50 km/h when we had the privilege of playing Rivers Edge, in Shalotte, approximately 50 minutes from downtown Myrtle Beach.

We have played at least a dozen rounds at this course and rest assured there will be more! A simply spectacular course that, if it were closer to the central portion of Myrtle Beach, would certainly be in the Top 10 courses in the region.

Following our visit today, we can confirm that Rivers Edge is in excellent condition, although the dry weather of the past few weeks has meant that all the golf courses here are in dire need of water. The tee boxes were like hardpan, but for the rest (fairways, long grass and greens) it was really great. In the past few weeks, we had heard several reports that the greens were excessively slow, but today their speed was rather medium speed compared to the other courses we have played so far.

We played Rivers Edge from the white tees at 5,759 yards and as for the ladies tee, the tees were at 4,525 yards.

That said, the last four holes of the course can definitely be considered the best quartet of finishing holes in the whole Myrtle Beach area! Nice mix of holes along the marsh and other more "traditional". You'll also love holes #5 and #8, two par threes of 115 yards and 155 yards from the white markers (59 yards and 118 yards for ladies), where the view is also spectacular.

A quick note on the "signature hole", namely #9, a diabolical par 5 which is played 494 yards from the white markers and 415 yards for the ladies with a long, but excessively narrow green, which can be reached in two shots… which is however quite a feat if you want our humble opinion. And even if you play it safe and work to get it in three, you might not get the result you hoped for, the entrance being so intimidating, which makes the challenge very interesting, regardless of the strategy chosen!

In any case, if you have ever played Rivers Edge, you can testify just like us that this place is quite special. And for those who have not yet had the chance to go to Shalotte, treat yourself to this challenge without hesitation!

Next round this upcoming Friday May 13, at Leopard's Chase!
