Riverview was being prepared for overseeding on the day I played. I knew conditions would be tough. Course always plays fast and this round was no exception. Next time I play, I hope the greens are a little slower, but I still enjoyed my round. Pace of place on the back side always seems to be slower than on the front.

To me, this is the best of all Sun City courses. The greens and fairways were in very good condition for late summer. No brown patches anywhere. The tee areas could use some tlc, though. I'll be back.

With hot deal rate you can't go wrong. Sure not perfect but what course really is? If you want to golf a clean friendly course that allows you to try to hit long I would definitely recommend you give it a go! If your disappointed then golf high end course's only.

Riverview was an enjoyable track. The layout is entertaining with a nice difference between every hole. There's a nice spattering of trees, bunkers, and water giving the eye plenty to look at. The staff was very friendly.

My complaints stem from the maintenance of the course. The practice green was very dead/dying, and it has an extreme gradient to it; which made it basically impossible to get a feel for the greens. The fairways were in rough condition, having an upsetting about of areas where there was no grass. The putting greens (which are difficult but fair when in good shape) were unfortunately a little sub-par.

All that said, it's tough to beat golf for under $20. We will definitely be back for more during the summer months even knowing the conditions aren't perfect.

Having never played this course before, I relied on some of the previously posted reviews. Some were mixed as to pace of play and condition of the course. I found the course to be challenging, particularly the undulating greens. Having said that, it was challenging in ways that a golf course should be. The course was in excellent condition- fairways and greens. Pace of play was good- I finished in about 3-1/2 hours playing as a 3-some. I would recommend this course to anyone who would enjoy a round of golf that includes water and real sand, and good greens.
