I noticed they had a good rate for a 9 Hole play so I jumped on it with not alot of time and now I understand why between the dirt in the fairways and The Gardener's working throughout it seemed like I was playing through their maintenance. Won't make that mistake again

I am a beginner, it is a great place to play when traveling for business and conventions in San Diego, the course is in fair condition and has great staff. It is good that they follow golf dressing protocol. If is best if you reserve on line to save some money.

The course was great and in good condition. However, it was the slowest round of golf I've ever played. I waited on every hole at least ten minutes. Some longer .

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.

One of those typical "last minute" arrangements to play golf on FATHER's DAY which started with us going on standby @ 4:45am at Torrey Pines GC... to no avail :( but regardless of the situation, we were STILL determined to play golf. Thank you GOLFNOW for having electronic tee sheets readily available for our local courses. EXCELLENT options and booked RIVERWALK "johnny on the spot!" BIG KUDOS to the support staff (Starter, GM, AGM, Cart Attendants, Cart Girl, and Player's Assistant) at Riverwalk for making our experience nothing less than PERFECT!!! I'll be back with friends very soon, Chuck @cfgolfore

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.
