I try to play this course a few times a year and have always enjoyed myself. The staff are nice, the course is in good shape and has sufficient challenges. The only downside is that they do not have a Marshall on the course and when the pace is slow, there is no one to get the slower golfers to move on.

The staff were friendly and helpful to everyone who entered the shop. The amenities were reasonably priced. Where else can you get a Hot dog and coke for two bucks? The course was tough the first day. A different challenge than other course's. Lots of dog legs that makes a person think strategically. Great course! The only drawback was the speed of play. A group of 5 held everyone behind them up. I went back the next day, and I played within 3 hours. I will play again on my next trip. I liked it so much, I bought a golf towel as a memento. Great team of folks!

Even with little rain inSeptember, the course is in good shape. Good fairways with few tight lies, greens were very consistent with no burn or weed spots.

Good value for the money, more wide open than courses with lots of trees and elevation changes.

The course has been in great shape the last 2 season. Has a good mixture of challenging holes. I won't mention any names but they have 1 staff member that is quite un-friendly. That is the only criticism

A few groups got caught up because the course let a 5some play and they were being really slow. I bought the round from golf now which offered free range balls and a free sleeve of balls. When i got to the course they could not give me this deal and the guy was upset that i had asked for it. He had refunded the first transaction only to charge me the same thing again. I said I was ok with just the range balls and he gave me the smallest bucket. I figured he might give me the medium bucket for the hassel i went through and the fact he couldnt give me what i had paid for but he just gave a small. But i love the course when its only $20. But i had to pay $40 and it was not worth $40.

Booked the night before and arrived about 45 minutes before my tee time. When the sun finally broke I went and paid my fees at the pro shop and the employee was very nice and pointed out the practice areas and the first tee. I got a key and he said any cart and I could go out any time, went to grab a cart and the seats were all covered in morning few which was probably the only draw back of this round. Only a single and twosome out in front of me and they played at a good pace. Took a few pictures to show my pals back in California, wish I lived closer but I'll be back when I come to visit my children and grandchildren.

I used to play Riverside quite a bit years ago and returned with out-of-town guest. It was in very good shape for all the rain we've had this year. Greens were in excellent shape. It was always one of my favorite courses on this side of DFW. The pace of play was horrible, though. VERY slow group of four in front of us which was adamantly opposed to letting my twosome play through, and there were no course marshals to be found. The GPS system was off on pin placements on virtually every hole, too. Playing to what you think is a front pin on a green that's 60 feet deep when the pin is actually back is not a good thing.

Tough but short layout from the white tees. Very tough from the tips. Avoid the bunkers unless you like fried eggs. Bring an extra sleeve (lots of water and the Trinity River is on your left for few holes). Shot placement is key to a good round. Have fun!
