You don’t have to be a member of Augusta National to enjoy a beautiful day of golf on an award-winning course. The River Golf Club in North Augusta – a stone’s throw from the home of the Masters across the Savannah River – has received its own accolades since opening in 1998.

The semi-private golf club was designed by renowned international golf course architect Jim Fazio and includes greens of Mini-Verde Bermuda grass and a slope rating of 129. Built on an abandoned railroad yard, Golf Digest magazine designated River Golf Club as one of the country’s top five new golf courses in 1999. Fazio left remnants of the railroad yard, such as railroad ties, visible in places throughout the course to commemorate the site’s history.
