I played 9 holes and the price was right for the value of the course. I initially entered the club house and there was a great group of older guys who were talking about their round and throwing back some beers and giving each other the business. I went out and played the Fox 9 holes and there was no one else on there course (I got there at 4pm). Great course for the price and the staff was friendly.

Had a 12:00 tee time. Called the course around 8:30 and asked they had an earlier slot as a single. I was told to come on out. Got there around 9:15 and got right out. Finished at 12:30. Great experience. Thank you.

Was paired up with Bob, a retired cop from Rhode Island. We had comparable games and he was good company. I was allowed to play before my tee time, as play was a

Ittle slow. The course was as dry as could be expected considering the amount of rain that the area has had. River Oaks is a decent lay out with decent staff and decent rate's. I will return.

Nice layout, rained during round course slow to drain, muddy where no grass next to cart paths, course needs maintance, greens had crabgrass growing but rolled petty good. Bunkers not raked in days. Better keep look out for water it is marked properly but better look. No beverage cart, played behind five some which was very slow, no ranger on course to help. Did get great rate off GolfNow. Purchased shirt on sale did not get sale price which became a deal to get corrected. Fountain drink machine broken.

This course is a complete swamp. It had not rained in a couple of days, yet there were lakes in the middle of the fairway, in the sandtraps, etc.

Not a fun experience at all, would not return.
