On this edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand we head to Rivers Edge Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer design that has become a favorite golf course of just about every golfer that has played it. The course offers every golfer a round of challenge and fun. With 5 sets of tees to fit any game, 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. Situated along the bluffs and tidal marshes of the Shallotte River, the unmatched scenery is definitely a huge part of what makes this place the amazing experience that rockets it to the top of most golfers favorite course list.
There is an amazing community growing around the golf course that deserves some recognition as well. When one tours the community the effort to seamlessly integrate homesites into the surrounding landscape is immediately noticeable. With over 500 acres of river bluffs, mature woodlands and rolling landscapes, Rivers Edge Golf Club & Plantation makes for a desirable spot for a forever home, a season house, or a retirement dream. All homesites provide a choice of a spectacular water view, golf course or wooded preserve homesites. This amazing experience is centered around the incredible golf course designed by Mr. Palmer and his design group. The challenge and the fun is unique and unparalleled anywhere in the southeast. Each hole presents a different look and feel than that of the one before and after it. Mounds and sand and wetlands guard the fairways and green complexes as well as provident stunning views and photo opportunities that will have the golfers caught up between hitting golf shots and taking pictures.
River’s Edge also boasts a tremendous clubhouse overlooking the 18th green and the Shallotte River. It is an amazing spot to relax in and enjoy a sandwich and cold drink after a round of golf. The staff in the bar and grill area is second to none when it comes to customer serviced and providing outstanding southern hospitality. They make golfers want to stick around and hang out on the back porch and watch other players hit into the finishing hole. They get to witness golfers take on this tough final shot to a green that is squeezed between the hillside leading up to the clubhouse on the left and the sand a Shallotte River along the right hand side.
