Played this course for the first time in near 2 years. What a difference. Greens are great, apparently new last year. Nice tees and plenty of grass on the fairways.

New restaurant on site and new golf carts too. Got a great price and fast play, around 3 1/2 hours.

I will be back next week. Pro shop guy was real friendly.

The property has invested in course improvements, and they appear to have helped. Tee boxes and bunkers are in pretty good condition. The course layout is nice, but some fairways and roughs are bare due to extensive efforts to eliminate weeds. A couple of the greens were in pretty bad shape, but they, too. are in the process of being repaired. Staff is friendly and helpful, restaurant is available and good place to get a quick snack/beverage. Overall, not sure I'd want to pay full price for 18, but worth the money with a good deal through GolfNow.

We have played here several times. The Fairways and some greens have become very stressed. Still it is a very fun course to play. It can be a challenge with very tight fairways. A little work on the maintenance of the course and this could be a hidden gem.

Found a deal on golf now.Went to check it out. Course rated 3 (fair), it was not. Most greens were very poor, which what was the same for the fairways. Got there a little early to check in. They told us to go to hole #1 and check in with the starter. We did. She said the other twosome from Golf now was not there yet, and we had to wait for them. We did not sign up to play a foursome. After the group ahead of us left there was there was no one else waiting. It is now our time to tee off. Other twosome still not there. Reluctantly she let us go. We followed the group ahead the first 7 holes until our starter asked us were our other twosome was. She made us wait there until they caught up. Waited about 10-12 minutes , they finally arrived. We never followed the group if front again,. Our other twosome hit very long shots every where except the fairways. Now instead of following the group ahead, we were pushed from the groups behind. After hole 14 we had enough of Riverside. Never before had I been told your playing too fast.

Fairways were rough, very dry, needs watered.

Some of the greens were rough, others were fine.

The Ranger was very pleasant, but no beer carts.

The clubhouse was closed, would have been nice to relax with a cold drink or a bite to eat. Finished around 4:30. Headed to the Sunset Grille.

Overall, was a nice round on a beautiful sunny Florida day.

We played after heavy rain, but didn't impact this review. Several fairways sparse on grass. Lot of sandy lies. Several greens had bare spots. Greens putted slow, but that was ok. Staff was friendly, no issues there. Course is currently over-rated. If you don't play ball where it lies and willing to move to turf, might be ok to play there; especially if you find a reduced rate.

Okay so first off, I recommend the course only if you can play it for $15 or less. Check the website before trying to find the course, we had a difficult time.<br/> The course layout is great for a short course, quite a bit of water and a lot of houses. The back nine seems to be under development. The fairways and rough are pretty bad as well as a few greens. The back nine starts away from the clubhouse so be prepared if you are thirsty as there was no cart girl the day we played. Staff friendliness must be a thing of the past because it is not like it use to be and this alone will make me take my hard earned money elsewhere.<br/> Overall I enjoyed the course but won't go back anytime soon.

Play was somewhat slow the back nine. 4 elder golfers were not keeping pace & they never replaced flag properly. The course was in as good of shape as I've seen it over the past 5 years. Facilities were clean. The entry gate was a problem as when we called pro shop no one answered the phone to open gate- and we were told to leave a message, like that won't open the gate folks. Finally a resident punched his own code in to let us & the 4 backed up cars in!
