The River Club, N Augusta SC

Recommended Posts

Right across the river from what many see as golf Mecca, The River Club is anything but a copy of the National.   Many courses in the area share the terrain of the National, large elevation changes etc,  not so at the River.  Much flatter, with nice rolling land, covered with a large lake, and wetlands, The River is a great departure and an excellent challenge.


The River Club is semi-private club, with other than Masters Week affordable green fees.   The course is a Fazio  family design with many of the crazy green complexes and slopes Fazio is known for.  Position is key to scoring, so many places it is imperative to be below the hole, none more so than the par 5 ninth.  The green is insane, a ridge runs front to back through the middle, being on the wrong side of this ridge creates a nearly impossible chip or putt .    The greens themselves, even in winter overseed are fast and firm.   The fairways are also overseeded so that the course even in winter is in great condition.   


The club also sports 3 cottages for rent, allowing you to stay right on property and play.  They will also book other courses for you if you do not want a steady diet of The River Club, but condition wise you can not go wrong.

Hmmm sounds like an ad for The River Club.
