Just across the Carolina border, parallel to the banks and bluffs that embody the Shallotte River, rests the beautiful Rivers Edge Golf Club. The one-of-a-kind round of golf you’ll experience at Rivers Edge is unmatched in its unique blend of rigor and charm. Recognized and regarded for years as one of the most alluring golf courses on the Grand Strand, this Arnold Palmer masterpiece is considered by many among the North Strand’s "must-plays.”

The natural geographical aesthetics enveloping the course highlight several signature golf holes. With shallow creeks and large expanses of marsh meandering throughout the course, golfers are sure to feel the tug of history that is permanently imprinted into each Palmer-designed hole. Long, sweeping fairways wind between intricate bunkers that leave room for judiciously placed greens. Six of Rivers Edge’s 18 holes are situated among river bluffs that overlook several miles of untouched native grasses and marshland. The awe-inspiring course layout boasts a handful of doglegs with tucked greens on many of its par 4s, while Rivers Edge’s par 3s and par 5s require intense concentration and near-perfect execution in order to avoid the hazards.

Both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine have honored Rivers Edge as one of "America’s Best New Upscale Courses” and "Top 20 New Courses You Can Play.” Its natural changes in elevation and terrain add to the demands of the layout, forcing players to occasionally settle for playing it safe as opposed to more aggressively. Golfers encounter a course that is challenging, yet rewarding in the scenic vistas the course offers back at every turn.

Rivers Edge is the epitome of true coastal North Carolina golf, from its impeccable course conditions to its enthralling finishing holes. It’s no surprise that golfers return to this course time and time again to satisfy their desire to play such a memorable track.
