This is a Fazio layout, that is one of the best values in the dew metroplex. Course has never been in better shape in the last couple of years. A few of the cart paths need some patching, but fairways are in terrific condition. The greens are coming out nicely. Challenging and congrats to the golf staff for improving this club. Check out the daily lunch buffet. Yum.

I really enjoyed the course layout, and look forward to playing Riverchase again soon. The practice green was extremely bumpy due to aeration, but the course greens were in excellent shape, and the aeration was not nearly as noticeable. The course had a few rough spots (one tee box had a really bad water leak). The cart paths were in terrible shape so the carts are pretty banged up (in our 4-some we had one broken windshield and one completely missing). Nevertheless, it's convenient to my home, has some interesting holes, the price was reasonable, and the staff was really helpful, so I'll play there occasionally.

NOTE: We played Sunday afternoon on a Hot Deal and learned upon arrival there was a shotgun charity scramble starting just 20 minutes ahead of our tee time. Apparently there was an issue with the course's tee system (not GolfNow), but the Staff was extremely accommodating. We decided to risk it, and despite the mixup, we completed our round in 4 hours, rarely having to wait on any hole.

Played with a friend and we ended up joining a nice couple and played as a foursome. Pace of play was slow but not unbearable. It was my first time at the course and I really enjoyed it! A fun layout with some challenges. They recently sanded the greens so they were a little slow but overall had a good time. Only complaint would be that a majority of the carts need some kind of repair, but in the end they did their job! I'll be back to play this one again.

I like this course and have played it several times. Convient location for golfers that live in Dallas. Although the greens run slow, the course is in good shape. My only real qualm with the course is the pace of play. The majority of the time we play, there is a pace issue.

Our group had played this course 1/2 dozen times and it's always held its own. After talking to the starter, we decided to play from the White tees which was about 6,000. It did not disappoint at all. Course was in great shape even though some of the bunkers were rough from the rain. Only thing is we did not find out the back 9 was punched until we paid.. Nonetheless we still had a great time. We will be back again

I have played this course many times including about 3 months ago but today the greens and everything were terrible. Still shot a good score so not that but the greens were the worst I have played the entire YEAR anywhere. Me and a group of friends have this one in our fall/winter/spring rotation to play once a month (along w/three others) but now I must tell them this one is out.

Not worth $50. 30 minutes behind from the start. I was told they start booking tee times at 6 am but it's still dark and can't start until 6:20. Greens were in bad shape.

I usually give this course better marks. But not this time. The fair ways and rough had been mowed and the dead clippings left on top, making it near impossible to find a ball in the rough and limiting roll on several fairways. Also, something is up with the irrigation system as there were extremely wet areas in several fairways, which couldn't be accounted for by rain. The greens are the bright spot. They rolled true and pretty smooth. But, don't aim at the pins. They wouldn't hold a good shot and are bound to get harder in the next few days. The biggest reason for my low ratings is this: two water stations with minimal to no water on a day of 102 temps. I called the pro shop to report the first one. Then returned 45 minutes later to find the cooler was still empty. In Texas, I consider this negligent and dangerous. I won't be back until it cools off a bit.

I had never played this course before and was excited to take my parents here while they were in town instead of our usual Lake Park or Indian Creek visit. Big mistake! First off, the carts are old and need to be replaced. I could deal with a lack of technology but in addition to the torn seats and extreme wear, after we approached the first hole my mom looked at me and said, "I don't think this thing will last us 18 holes". This was due to the awful sound it made every time we pressed the gas. The day only got worse because the entire front nine was flooded from what looked like poor sprinkler heads that GUSHED out water instead of spreading it out. The cart paths, the fairways, the roughs.....you name it and it was flooded. It felt like we were golfing in a swamp. By the time we got to hole 10 I was covered in mud and my feet were soaked. The back nine was not as bad but soggy feet on a hot day made for a very bad experience. I would not return and would not recommend this course.

Continue to get sucked in once a year by the free breakfast and lunch (they have dropped the 2 free beers!) Course continues to be a disappointment as it could be so much more. No starter on our day so there were twosomes/foursomes and threesomes all intermingled and excruciatingly slow play. Bunkers have been terrible for years. Many fairways seemed to be flooded due to sprinkler issues.

Teed ff at noonish, finished at 3:30 as twosome. ave played Coyote, Watters, Plantation, Lake Park, and Champion Circle this year and Riverchase had the fastest and smoothest greens. They do not look as pretty as Coyote and Watters but the roll was much more true (Coyote and Watters both generate bounce in your putt due to having to stroke so strongly). Tee boxes (white) were a little patchy but not distracting. Fairways were in excellent condition. This course is quite tight (not as tight as Champion Circle) so bring your management cap. Played on a Tuesday so that is why pace was quick.

I play regularly here and the course is in a great condition. T boxes, fairways and greens are near perfect. The cart tracks are a bit bumpy in places. I can also see improvement every time so it means the staff are aspiring to something better.

It is great already but keep gooing and it will be even better
