Just like the last 4 reviews, this course is just a dump now. We played Presido/Mission, and still this course is in the worst shape i have seen it in 10 years. For them to charge $60 to play it is insane. Yes i paid it, but never again. Fairways on both 9's are in horrible shape. Bare spots everywehre. 50% percent of the fairways were muddy. Only glimmer of hope, is the greens where fast and pretty true.

Come on Riverwalk, either put in a little effort, or just close up shop. Everyone knows you are closing down at least Friars, but with this effort, you should just consider shutting down all operations.

Golfers be warned from this and the last 4 reviews. This course is in horrible shape. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE

It used to be a nice place, now...it is all rundown. The fairways are terrible, lots of repairs going on and only a few greens without a bunch of twigs and debris.

For they to continue charging 39.00 or more in a regular weekday is outrageous for the course is not worth it.

Much better places in San Diego for such fares.. Admiral North and Sycuan's courses for instance.

Not coming back soon

Being a SD resident and played here for many years; this is the worst I’ve seen the course, ever! My suggestion would be to close down Friars for at least 3 months until the fairways are back to a decent playing condition.

I was amazed and sad to see what has happened to the Mission / Presidio courses. I heard they were sold to build condos in the future but it's like they've given up on maintaining it. 30% of th course is bare with no grass. The greens were fantastic but the rest (Tee boxes and Fairways) are NOT worth a $60 round of golf. Too bad....

First off I have an 8 handicap and my playing partner a 18. When we first pulled up to the #1 tee box they paired us up with some guy and his 13 year old son. Gave us the whole deal about if you’re gonna shoot over a double on a hole pick up and move on; we told him we’ll keep pace with the group in front of us. The starter said “oh well they are playing from the tips and will have no prop lem keeping pace” HAHAH!!! Sorry if you shoot 90+ you should not even attempt the tips; your drive is 220 and you wait for the green to clear on a 330 second shot par 5. Your par 3’s are ground runners but hey you play from the tips so you’re good. The marshal had the freaking nerve to tell our group at one point to pick up and move on...the group in front of us hadn’t even left the tee box yet; so sorry you paired us up with this guy and his kid which weren’t playing half as bad as the group in front of is but I’m playing all 81 strokes that I did regardless of what you tell me. Field marshals should really base who they ask to speed up or pick up on the Par 5’s with players who drive less than 250 and wait for the green to clear.

I play here quite a bit. I hadn't played mid-week in a while. Our round was 5 hours - teeing off around 10am on a Wed. Slow play and not a marshal in sight. No beverage cart either, although we did see one on the first hole. The greens were in awesome shape, but the rest of the course is still under repair in some areas. Tons of fairways with huge roped off ground under repair spots. I really like this course but the consistency of the condition and amenities seems to change all the time. Good round overall, but would love to see the fairways in better shape and the pace pick up.

I played Friars Presidio, i can tell the course is under repair so i won't comment on the condition. Hopefully we will have more options than those two courses every time. I tbink that they are over used. Some of the tee boxes are over watered and uneven. The greens look very good and the pin placements are quite challenging. I still enjoy playing these courses and look forward to playing them again.

If you like a 6 hour round, Riverwalk is the place. Frequently, you'll be waiting 2 or 3 groups at the first tee. You heard that right. And to make sure you get your 6 hour round, they love to book 5 player groups. Ahh, the 5 player group. They love it because they never have to wait since they can't keep up with anyone. And everyone behind them get's to sit and witness every shot they take. And it's never the decent golfer's that are in a group of 5. It's always the 50yd hacks. This is the norm for this course. And you will always find numerous fairways that are under repair. If they simply cared enough to keep a marshall on the course making sure groups stayed a shot behind it would be a fun course to play.

the course is in great shape and the greens are very nice. I went on a monday the pace was very nice about 4 hours to go around. the staff was very friendly. the only thing I will say to watch is if you have an early tee time the course is right off the freeway and at rush hour it can be challenging. after 830 it should be okay.

Mission was great; Friars was bad . . . almost seems forgotten compared to Mission and Presidio. Had a great round. Played from the blues for the first time (+400yds) and did not feel the difference. Course is a fair value for Sunday golf but can get a little busy with tournaments.

I live close by this course & have played there a few times. EVERY TIME I play here the course is extremely over booked. 11:37am tee time & we didn't tee off until 12:10. When pulling up to the tee box there were 16 other players (4 foursome's) waiting to tee off also! I asked the Marshall & he said they book too many tee times. I spoke with the desk & they said there's nothing they can do...The pace of play is the worst I've ever seen at any course. It's not hard to figure out nobody knows what their doing at Riverwalk.
