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

The course was very wet as it doesn't drain very well after a storm. However, I found the course to be very deceiving as the fairways are open and forgiving, but the greens are small. You must hit a good shot to hit these greens if not then you will be chipping back.

Had a 12:53 tee time. Didn't get my cart until 1:30. Overbooked and unorganized. They gave carts to people that had tee times 30 minutes after us. Cart girl passed us 3 times without stopping, while we were swinging off the tees. I have been here a couple of times thinking it would get better. It has only became worse. This was the worst and last time I will play here. They constantly overbook what the course and staff can handle.

I have played this course 5 or 6 times in the past month and each week it gets better and better. I have played 10 different courses in DFW over the past few months and this is by far the best course for the money. Greens are tight and running nice. Lots of water but forgiving on many tee shots. fairways and tee boxes in pretty good shape. Best time to play is early in the morning, just double check to see if there are any tournaments. It can get pretty backed up sometimes.

Course is fun layout and in good condition. For the $ it is an incredible value. Only negative is pace of play. Having to wait on every shot is frustrating but an easy fix.

I played there Tuesday and Friday. Tuesday the course was excellent in all regards. Friday the front 9 fairways were mown too low while the back 9 fairways were really good. They did have a tournament that morning but they would have has plenty of play anyway. I told all my friends about Tuesday then apologized for fairways on Friday. I like this course, but the general trend for municipals seem to be save money which leads to poorer playing conditions. I have quit playing several courses in DFW for that reason. DFW is large enough to sustain all the courses. Spend some freaking money and keep them up!

They were having a tournament and it was slow making the turn causing a big backup on the first tee. The starter was very personable and tried to help as much as possible. 4.5 hour round. Greens don't hold shots at all but putt very true and fast. fairways in very nice condition. Will play again.

the pins were on the sides of slopes and a 2 footer might break 2 feet.. Secondly the tees were set on 30 and 40 degree slopes and the ball was way above and below your feet.

Don't let Pedro or Jesus set the pins and tees

or your play will will really start to fall. Finally some down hill putts would go by 10 feet if you hit like a 6 inch putt.

OMG! On yesterday, we had two tee times (8 players) at Riverchase, Coppell Texas, but did not realize that they were about to a tournament there. So we asked the clerk in the office if we could tee off on the back nine or go ahead of the group; which was about to take up the first 8 holes; on a shot gun start. He indicated no! And proceeded to tell the other clerk to go to tee box one and make sure we did not go off. Really! And you wonder why the golf industry is in crisis!

I liked the layout of this course. I felt it was a underwatered though. The fairways were rock solid and the greens were unpredictable and bumpy. The sand traps were like legitimate beaches, deep sand, so you just sink as you walk in them. Hit several great shots that would catch a hill and roll into the water, and I feel that if the fairways and rough were more defined and watered more then the ball would have slowed before getting to the water. All in all it is not a terrible course. A lot of fun but frustrating and dissapointing that it is not in the shape it needs to be in to play well.
