One of our favorite places to visit on Tee It Up Grand Strand is Rivers Edge Golf Club in Shallotte, North Carolina.  Any time we get a chance to talk with our good friend Jeff Pianelli, PGA Head Golf Professional, we get excited because we know we are going to learn more and more about this great golf course.  Today we see how well the golf course continues to progress in its move back to the front of the pack as one of the best courses along the Grand Strand.

Rivers Edge Golf Club is truly a sensational golf property.  An Arnold Golf Signature design, this course offers every golfer a round of challenge and fun. With 5 sets of tees golfers will find the range that best suits their game. But, it may take 2 or possibly 3 rounds at Rivers Edge to “get to know” the course. Jeff and his staff love that about the course.  It is a golf course that absolutely makes golfers want to return again and again as they find something new to love about the course each time they play it.

Steve Martin, the superintendent for Rivers Edge, has as much to do with that as anyone.  A few years ago the course went through a rough spell as far as condition goes.  An extremely cold winter caught the region off guard and unfortunately the grasses on the course did not respond well.  Since then the hard working crew has tirelessly toiled to get Rivers Edge into the kind of condition that golfers had come to expect and love.  Let us rephrase that…it is better now than it has ever been.

The incredible scenery provided by the Shallotte River, provides a wonderful backdrop to one heck of a golf course.  Rivers Edge was recently awarded “Top 20 Golf Courses in North Carolina” by Golf Digest.

“We are extremely happy and humbled to receive such high accolades” said Jeff Pianelli.  “It reaffirms all the hard work and dedication our amazing staff puts in day after day trying to give golfers the best experience possible.”

Rivers Edge is a member of the East Coast Golf Management family of golf courses.  ECGM provides industry leading club management and marketing services. Paired with Jeff and his wonderful staff, they are pushing Rivers Edge to new heights in 2017.  We cannot wait to see what more they have to show us in the coming months.
