Hidden gem - plays short but tight, making for lots of interesting club choices off tees. Fairways were in good shape and greens were pristine. Sounds like they've put a lot of effort into getting the course into good playing shape, and it shows. Outstanding value for the money.
A Very Nice Track, Fun Course.
This is a nice track. The course was in very good condition other then a few tee boxes needing some TLC and a couple of greens had some bald spots. The fairways were nice, being from Canada I found the grass very unusual and the ball seemed to sink into it quite a bit. The greens were firm but held very well and were a consistent throughout the day. They also rolled true and birdie putts were possible. The sand traps were not playable as they did not look like they had been attended to for quite sometime. I choose to lift, rake and place the ball rather then drop outside the bunker and found this was a fair way to play, happy I only had to do it twice.
The fairways are generously wide and forgiving and the rough was not really that rough at all. I played the blue tees and due to the number of dog legs left and right I found myself with a long iron in my hand more times then not. This is not a bad thing, it forces you to manage your game and I choose to play a conservative round.
I did not find the staff there to be very friendly and they seemed unhappy I booked through Golf Now and stated they were finished with Golf Now in March 2019.
I would golf here again should I be in the area as the golf course did not have the same attitude as the staff.
Good golf for the money
Played 10/25/18 and course was in great shape and greens rolled true. Stay away from the rough it will cost you strokes.
The River is a decent course with an Interesting layout, excellent greens and good fairways, however cart paths and tee boxes need some maintenance.
You’ll have a chance to test out your 3 wood and long irons/hybrids off several tees including the par 5 10th hole as well as a driveable par 4 on the front nine where driver, even from the blue tees would be too much club to hold the fairway/green. If you catch a good deal..less than $20...I would recommend checking it out!
greens are recovering very well. layout makes you think, fairways are in great shape, new carts and excellent staff.
A nice layout that needs some TLC
I like the layout of the course, some very interesting holes. However, the greens were in terrible shape. They had recently been airified, but even without that there were many greens that had large spots with out grass. The tee-boxes hadn't beeen mowed in quite a while and on many of them it was difficult to find a level spot.
They’re working on it
Always been a challenging course. That’s why I like it. They’re working on cleaning up the greens and bunkers. I like the challenge.
Overall the course is challenging with long par 5s. All the greens are dead. It was like putting on concrete. Could not read them and not able to putt softly.
nice course weak freens
greens still struggling to recover from winter damage
Good layout needs work
The course is very playable for all skill levels. We played as a twosome in about 3 hours. The fairways were playable under winter rule conditions. The greens were extremely fast due to dry dormant conditions. I would play here again and recommend it. They are working to restore this course and make it more playable.
This course has improved tremendously in the last year keep it up!
new carts. facility, traps and grounds being fixed up. playing was a pleasure
give it a try
greens were extrrmely fast. fairways and first cuts made it easy to find your ball. big improvement from earlier rounds when many golfers searched too long for errant shots.
Challenging course good value
Challenging course with very interesting holes ( risk vs reward).
It was ok at best
It's winter time, so tough to really rank the course. I did like the layout, but the greens were painted
It’s end of January so expectations were low but for $15, it was great. Nice layout and challenging from the back tees. Greens were bumpy and tee-boxes a mess on some holes but overall well worth the drive.
