Good course/conditions-AWFUL STAFF

Like the course, well conditioned, good value. OMG the pro shop staff however. ‘Masks mandatory in the pro shop’ signs on all entry doors. Three staff members at desk, no masks. Asked them to mask up before I came in, identified myself as an MD. Response: ‘None of us r sick’ . My answer: You have no idea if you have virus. STILL NO STAFF PUT ON A MASK. Not a game we’re playing here! Why I quit medicine-you cannot cure stupid. Typical rural NC- very sad.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. River Ridge's policy is to wear masks inside. We apologize two of our staff members were not wearing their masks when you were here. We will speak with those staff members, and get this sorted out. Thank you for golfing with River Ridge.

Hidden Gem.

After a wet week the course was in great shape. Cart path only today, but pace of play was excellent. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great condition. A few sand traps were beat up but given the rain and Covid not surprised. Will be back.

Continues to impress

The guy in the pro shop told us the course was behind since they had a tournament out on the course. There were a LOT of golf carts around the club house and on the putting green. So we were looking forward to a very slow day on the course. But when its was all said and done we played in just over four hours, which is long for this course, but much better than we anticipated. We waited on some holes but not very long. The course was in great condition.

This is a secret in the area. Great layout, excellent pace of play and reasonable priced.

Great warm up facilities

I was pleased to see that the round of golf came with a few range balls included. I think this is a nice touch that prevents the errant shot on the first tee and improves the pace of play and morale during the round. There were also excellent chipping and putting greens to practice on. The practice green was immaculate and matched the condition and speed of the greens on the course. Our twosome finished in 4.25 hrs with very little waiting on the tees. We had a very enjoyable round and I will be back.

To slow to enjoy!

The pace of play was terrible. The range was closed on a perfect day. No range, slow play and a Marshall no where to be found. Sorry, but there are to many courses where slow play is addressed, just not at RR. Save your $55.

Where’s the Range balls?

Played this course many of times and one thing I loved was the openness to the public with range balls provided
Not this time - little small bags not more than say 12-15 in each.
Now I didn’t get any because I thought the range is “open” but I seen the bags from other patrons.

Disappointing
