RiversEdge_sunriseRivers Edge Golf Course, located  in Shallotte, NC, is an Alrnold Palmer designed public course on the Shallotte River. Sitting above the river and adjoining marshes, Rivers Edge offers breathtaking views and an extraordinary golf layout.

Rivers Edge is one of only two courses on the Grand Strand with Paspalum greens. These are the same greens found at  Kiawah Island. This salt water tolerant grass offers a completely different putting experience when compared to the Bermuda strains and Bent grass.

The gentle elevation changes allowed by the course location, on the bluffs of the Shallotte River, make for and interesting and challenging layout. As the interior holes wind through and around the freshwater lakes and woodland, they lead you to six of the most beautiful holes in  the area. Sitting on the bluffs above the bends and turns of the Shallotte River and miles of grassy marshland, you find find it hard to concentrate at first as you take in the vistas surrounding you.

This is definitely one of those courses you’ll want to play again and again. The fist time around the course can be a little intimidating for the higher handicappers, but on the replay, you’ll have the advantage of knowing the best places to hit the ball to set up your next shot. By the third time, you’ll have it down and have a distinct advantage over your friends who may not have been so privileged. So, sneak in an extra round for yourself before you invite your favorite opponent.

The pro shop, restaurant, and practice area at Rivers Edge are certainly exceptional. The staff and head PGA Professional Jeff Pianelli are eager and ready to make your golf outing at Rivers Edge Golf Course a memorable experience. After your round, be sure to make the time to enjoy your favorite beverage on the back veranda overlooking the  Shallotte River and miles of marshlands.
