We were able to tee off a little early and as a twosome were behind another twosome that didn't want to join up. Ahead of us were 2 foursomes and we were a little worried about slow play. As it turned out we finished in 3 hours 15 minutes. The course itself was in great shape but did have some concern about a lack of golf etiquette on those before us. The number of unrated sand traps and ball marks on the greens indicate more rangers are needed.

"Roller Coaster Greens"

This redesigned course had greens which did not have one flat spot. Undulations were overdone. Unless you are a pro or an extremely good reader of putts, scoring on this course is very difficult. Since the average player is a Sun City retiree, the architect missed the mark on this one. Great course for a 10 minus handicapper, but frustrating for the rest of us.

Most of the time we only get to play in around 3.5 hours so it was great being out there for 5. Also they allow you here to play as a 5some or 6some if you want, don't even ask the pro shop just do it. Cool! Can't wait to play with John again. I knew he meant business when he showed up. USGA bag tag, CHECK. Headcovers for all irons, CHECK. Ball retriever, CHECK. Wrist watch with GPS, CHECK. Free information on equipment, CHECK. Reminding the whippersnapper kids in his group to keep the noise down, CHECK. I've never seen a true pro play in person so that was cool, I think he shot a 90. Amazing.

Pro shop, practice facilities and tee to green all are great. Pace was a little slow, not unusual at the Sun City courses, but still it was moving along. This course starts across the street on the old number 10. Just wish they did not have the big tree in front of the tee box......LOL

The course was in good shape and playing partners were wonderful (norm for this course) but as is the case for all Sun City courses, player assistants should be reinstated. The second group in front of us had 2 and sometimes 3 open holes in front of them.

Greens are still slow and fuzzy but overall in great shape. Pace of play was slow, too many 5 somes slow down play, should be able to play a round in 4 hours not 5.

No course map available even on score card. No GPS on very old carts. No bottles of water. Fortunately, we were paired with someone who had played there once before. Otherwise, it would have been a big guess on the long fairways.

I enjoyed playing here it was my first time here and it was well paced, wasn't real happy with cart path only, but that is why the course was so green.... The grass was a little long on the fairways and wet which slowed my ground balls down a lot.... But i will be returning for another round very soon

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.
