More than 200 new homes to be built on this Myrtle Beach area golf course. Here’s where

River Oaks Golf Club has sold its 18-hole golf course to developers who plan to build over 200 new homes on the land.

Chris Manning, of Chris Manning Communities, closed on the Fox and Otter courses last week, according to On the Green Magazine. Manning is partnering with Mungo Homes to build 220 family lots on the golf course.

In a Facebook post, the River Oaks Golf Club said it hopes to remain open for a few more years.

The Sun News reached out to Manning, River Oaks Golf Club and Mungo Homes for a request to comment and had not heard back as of publication.

This is the final acquisition of the River Oaks Golf Club, as Manning bought the Bear portion of the golf course back in 2021 for $3 million, The Sun News reported. He recently sold that portion of land to Mungo Homes for $9.5 million, according to Horry County land records.

The River Oaks Golf Club at one time had a 27-hole course, with three sections: the Fox, the Otter and the Bear. The Bear closed shortly before the land was bought in 2021.

The entirety of the golf course is zoned as single family or mixed residential. This makes it an attractive piece of land to develop as there is no need to get rezoning approved by the Horry County Council.
