My wife and I play a lot of golf and we play a lot of courses since we like the variety that different courses provides. We would have say that Riverwood is by far our favorite .... Impeccable Greens and Tee boxes, Lush Fairways and short rough which makes find a ball easier to find. My hats off to the maintenance department ..... GREAT JOB

The best course in Charlotte County! Always friendly staff and a great layout. Conditions are always excellent as this is the best maintained course. Very professionally run with nice practice facilities; instruction available and a starter to call your group to the first tee.

Very fair but tough course. Requires precise shots and good course management to score well. Lots of tempting shots over hazards. The white tees are 6,000 yards and a slope of 130 so you must be on your toes. Fun for the experienced golfer.

Great top notch course Ethan was in very good shape especially playing just after Hurricane Irma hit. Very challenging course but plenty of tee boxes for all levels of players. Course has a great practice facility before play.

The layout of the course is good. Greens are very slow. The staff however were not very friendly. After nine holes and being in the hot sun, we decided to pull over for 2 seconds to just fill our cups of ice water. Before I even finished filling my cup, the starter on the loud speaker called us to the 10th tee. Couldn't even stop to use the restroom let alone grab a dog at the turn. Pretty rude. Didn't really get the chance to use the off course facilities because we really didn't get the chance.

Not sure if I would return. Definitely not in prime season when the greens fees sky rocket. The course and the staff there just really aren't that good.

Didn't help they paired us with the rudest twosome of all time. To be honest, I rarely complain about people or courses but I felt the need to in this case.

If all you care about is a decent course design, by all means have at it and good luck.

Riverwood is an excellent course - both in layout and condition. Just happened to play in mid-summer so greens weren't as good as they've been the previous times I've played course. Normally it is a course worth playing - I recommend, but maybe in spring or fall.
