First time playing there in 2017, I usually try and play there 3-4 times a year, prior to 2017. The course conditions were well below average. Several of the fairways have little to no grass. Several of the bunkers were in need of attention. We only saw the cart wagon once during the round, we never saw a Marshall the entire round. Riverwalk management needs to spend a little money getting this course back into shape.

I play here a half dozen times a year due to the copious amount of great Southern California golf there is. This course has three 9-hole tracks which all offer something different. The starters here are usually young college kids with bad attitudes but that is a whole ball of wax not worth reviewing.

Long story short they have completely destroyed the fairways on the Friars 9hole with 4 or 5 fairways LITERALLY GONE and to the dirt with caution tape around it. The cart girl said "we use the grass on the Friar fairways to replant the other two with...then why and I paying $60!! It was terrible moreover they don't even tell you this in the clubhouse. They mentioned a new Superintendent took over. They have their work cut out for them. I wouldn't touch this course right now with a ten foot pole and will give them maybe a YEAR until they start growing grass again. Play elsewhere even if you are in business and staying near Hotel Circle.

I've played Riverwalk alot thru the years and it's been in rough shape before but, this was awful yesterday. They are charging a ton to play a course that should have 5 holes shut down. Pace of play stunk at 7 am, it took us almost 5.5 hours to play. They should increase the starting times from 7 min apart to 12 in my opinion. Don't want to go on about everything else I will just choose not to play there anymore. Bummer cause I like the course.

We played Friars and Presidio, and Friars was in horrible condition! I mean fairways, and all. No mention of that when I booked through GolfNow and paid $42 at 3pm. Ridiculous!!

I played a few groups ahead of you and enjoyed decent lies, excellent greens and speedy play. Yes, the fairways are a mess, but they were much worse a couple months ago. "Often Disappointed" as a previous poster titled has been a problem in the last few years. But not to worry... Redevelopment for the area is back on track; don't be surprised to see Friars bulldozed this year.

I played Riverwalk again today and as I was approaching the starter was reminded why I tell myself I'm not going to play the course again. Had my parents in town from Wisconsin, and they were just happy to be out so I wasn't going to say anything to ruin the mood of the afternoon. However, two groups ahead of us was an 8-some on the Friars course (was disappointed to be put on the Friars nine as the fairways are extremely torn up and kind of embarrassing). The nine hole round took about three hours, and no one on the staff even made an appearance out on the course. Overall, a disappointing experience.

Played Friars and Mission course

-Friars was a pretty open straightforward nine holes. The fairways were in horrible shape with bare spots on every hole. Had to role ball to get a grass lie. Greens were in great shape and very undulated which made putting a challenge. Great layout and very nice greens but horrible fairways. Pace of play was on par for a friday round. Good experience!

-Mission nine was in much better shape with some much tougher holes. No mental mistakes or you are in trouble. Greens were in great shape and fairways in much better shape on this nine. Pace of play was a bit slow but it was sunny and 70 degrees so it wasnt a big hassle!

Overall great experience. Staff was nice. Starter was nice and teed off on time. Played with and met some really nice people. Price was descent and the couse was convenient to where i was staying.

I would recommend this course.

To be honest I was greatly disappointed in this course. Having played it before and remembering it to be in good shape, I thought it would be a good place to take some out of town friends before their flights back home. This was our final course after 4 days of a golf vacation. The course is in terrible condition except for the greens. The greens are in good shape but the rest of the course is in desperate need of an overhaul. I had to apologize to my friends for the condition of the course! Will not be going back to Riverwalk anytime soon.

Booked tee time on Golf Now for 11:00 Sunday, 4/30. When we arrived, we were told that our tee time was 10:45. It took 10 minutes shy of 3 hours to finish 9 holes. We called it a day after the foursome in front of us was still using the bathroom/getting food at the turn. I expect it to busy on Sundays but come on, that was absurd.

I played this course before and I made note to myself to play it again because of the convenient location. I did not remember it to be that expensive for the condition it was in. The greens were not bad but the fairway was in bad condition with too many bald spots and under repair if there was even an attempt to repair. Still not bad for a city course.

This is the 4th time playing this course. Mission is by far the best 9...

Pace of play was OK, condition of most fairways is just ok, with bare patches from the winter flooding. The team are doing the best to resolve that...
