We played this course a little over a month ago and it was an amazing shape. We went back yesterday and the greens are very splotchy but still rolled pretty good just wasn't in as good of condition as it was before.

I understand playing on a nice day on Saturday can be a little crowded, but this was rediculous. 5:15 minutes to get in 18. very poor course management by the staff for not having a masrahall anywhere to be found . More than likely we won't back which is sad because it's a pretty fun track.

They had a scramble going on that pushed our tee time from 12:15 to 12:45, but they gave us a couple free beers and sent us off on hole 10 and we still finished by 4:00. Fun course with nice greens. A couple par 4s that are drivable from the whites

The course was fun, and the greens were okay, though a bit roughed up with splotches in places. None the less, they still rolled true. The layout is both fun and challenging.

The only bad part was thet there was some sort of high school tournamant going on, and they had definitely overbooked the groups that were to follow the tournament. I had even let a few peole through so I could take my time, since they seemed to be in a hurry, and I know how frustrating slow play can be. That's one reason I had stopped playing here several years ago.

When I reached hole number 10, every group I had let through, as well as three others were all backed up at the tee box.---Seriously--5 groups at one tee box. The guy behind me, who had just finished the front nine saw me backing my cart up, and knowing what I was about to do, asked if I minded if he joined me. The two of us had a great run at the front none, without all the frustration of having to suffer through the glacial pace of play that was taking place ahead of us.

Decided to play this course since I am new to the area and it is close to my home. Played at 3:00 on a Monday. Started out as a single. Got behind a 4 some after three holes that would not let me through. Another single caught up to me and we paired up. We followed the foursome for another 5 holes and finally skipped a hole to get in front of them. At hole 14 got behind 2 fives somes and at this point just gave up and quit. Course was still in pretty rough shape with many bare spots especially around the greens.

Not blaming the course for the group not letting us play through, but two fivesomes back to back???

I have played this course numerous times, but upon hearing they had Golfboards, I felt the need to test them out. Had a bit of previous experience with them so was able to fill out liability form and be granted access. I believe I was the first to use one at Riverside so I thought I would write a review to encourage everyone to go give them a shot. Was an absolute blast! Paid only $10 additional for use. I will definitely be back soon.

Course was in decent condition for the end of February but the pace of play, specifically the unwillingness of slower players to let our group play through, took some of the joy from the round. Waited on every shot for all 18 holes. There was no one in front of the four women for several holes but they would not let our threesome play through. Contacting the clubhouse was frustrating because they just sent a message through the gps system. No marshalls. Won't be going back anytime soon.

I want to thank you for taking the time to voice your frustration with your recent experience. I appreciate your time and feedback. Absolutely, you deserve to play a round of golf in a timely manner. Unfortunately, we do have some slower golfers visit our course on occasion. I am disappointed that Staff did not remedy the situation to your satisfaction and apologize for not taking care of things properly. I hope that you’ll give us another opportunity in the future and if you are agreeable, I would like the chance to discuss this further. Thank you – Jay 817.640.7800

If you play conservative and don't try to cut corners you shouldn't lose a ball, I lost 6 today. Had before noon tee off and finished 3:30, good for a Saturday. Staff was excellent and saw food cart every 3 holes.

I know how frustrating it can be when faced with slow play and I appreciate your bringing this to our attention. We have been a large amount of late afternoon play due to the great weather and our Twilight Rates. Totally agree that a Starter would help so we can pair the two-some into fours. Thank you again for your feedback and we do hope that you'll give us another chance. Jay
