Beware if you hit the ball high and right with a 25 mph southern wind.Odds are your going to send a lot of golf balls to a watery grave.Very playable and fun course.

Good course layout. No Marshall on the course. Crowded, but reasonable pace of play. Conditions of course was a little dry with occasional very wet spots. Nice staff.

A nice place to play overall.

Course was in good condition, pace of play was excellent, played with two other golfers and we were never pushed or held up. Greens were fast for a public course but rolled true. Only negative was they had the irrigation on for the 10th and 14th fairway, not sure why but had to be careful not to get wet. Otherwise it was a great round on a beautiful day.

Although the greens were in average shape, the tee boxes where like hitting off of a sand trap. Course was very dry. If you don't mind playing in these conditions, this is the course for you. Better values available around the metroplex.

This course, with a discount is very much worth the money. Decent shots are generally rewarded and poor shots can pay a price. On this day, very windy, but not extreme. The greens right now are in good shape. I found the worst part of the greens to be where other golfers had dragged their feet. They were fast and received a good approach shot very well. There's enough movement on the greens to make it interesting, without making it a nightmare for us duffers. No complaints about the fairways or bunkers either. A few of the tee boxes were a bit chewed up though. The rough is rough. Nothing will role in it or through. A beautiful drive that lands in the rough will ultimately be no longer that a below average drive that's hit straight down the fairway. If you put a ball in the rough, on almost every hole, you will have to be standing on top of it or looking straight down at it to see it. So, buying beware! If Riverchase wasn't on the other side of town, I'd play there more often.

The pace of play was very slow, every hole had players. We had to wait all day for every shot, which made it a long day. The rough was deep, if you hit the rough, it was hard to find your ball. Bunkers were terrible. The Course served a free lunch with a paid green fee, which is a nice touch. The Course greens were very bumpy not real true. They had some really crazy breaks. The price was a little high for this course. Over all a nice Course. When the greens roll better, the bunkers are worked on, and the pace of play improves this will be a much better place to play.

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 have played here before and thought Sunday would be a good day. I got stuck between two tournaments and the people I was suppose to play with were no shows. When you play as a single its boring and you end up waiting on every hole. That didnt bother me but the group behind me hit into me twice and then flew my cart on 17 tee. This isnt the fault of the course or the staff.

Its a good little course but $50 for a sunday round is a little much.

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.
