It’s time to start planning your spring golf trip to Myrtle Beach. Myrtle Beach is the golf capital of the world and for good reason. With over 90 golf courses in the area, Myrtle Beach offers a golfing experience like no other. Although there is no “bad” time to visit Myrtle Beach, it’s commonly known that March 1st through May is often the ideal time for golf. The average daily high temperature during these months range from 64 to 79 degrees and they tend to be the driest months of the year. So, with warm weather, sunny days, and stunning courses there’s no place that compares for a spring golf trip then Myrtle Beach. 

It can be hard when planning your golf trip to choose what courses to add to your agenda. One course that is a must-play among many yearly Myrtle Beach golf trip visitors is Rivers Edge Golf Club. Rivers Edge Golf Club is located a few miles across the South Carolina and North Carolina border in Shallotte, North Carolina. The course is considered one of the best among the Grand Strand and Myrtle Beach area and was named the 2023 Golf Course of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association.

You probably are wondering what makes Rivers Edge Golf Club a top tier course and why you need to add to your spring golf trip— Here are our top three reasons: 


Skillfully Designed Arnold Palmer Signature Course 

Rivers Edge Golf Club was designed by Arnold Palmer and opened in 1999. The championship course sits along the bluffs and tidal marshes of the Shallotte River, and offers diverse challenges for all golf skill levels. Each hole at Rivers Edge was carefully crafted with precise attention to detail. The course features a strategic layout with every hole presenting a unique challenge. Palmer had a knack for seamlessly integrating his courses into the natural landscape and Rivers Edge is no exception. The visual masterpiece of Rivers Edge can be seen from every point of detail— bunker, tee box, hazard placement,etc. 

Another design feature seen in all of Arnold Palmer’s courses is a signature design element. At Rivers Edge it’s a signature hole. One of the most talked about holes along the Grand Strand is number 9 at Rivers Edge, also known as “Arnie’s Revenge.” This Par 5 plays 540 yards from the black tees and requires perfectly executed shots from tee to green. It’s a hole that you will be talking about after round while sitting on the back porch sipping a cold beer.
