Course is in very good shape, well maintained and walkable. The greens rolled true. There's an ample number of hazards and distance variability to test your course management skills. I'm making River Ridge my new home course.
Best value on the planet. Wish I lived here and I would play it 5 times a week
Haven’t played River Ridge in a while but glad I rediscovered it. Worth the 45 minute drive from Durham.
Love the layout; every hole is different. Given the fact that it’s the middle of June, the course is in great shape and the greens roll true and in a bit speedy.
I had a tee time at 1:36 but the course Marshall was super nice and accommodating and let me start a bit early and was able to finish the round in 3 1/2 hours.
Great job River Ridge
Hello, thank you for taking the time to review us. Your feedback is valuable, and we look forward to delivering you excellent service again soon. River Ridge Golf Club thanks you!
worth the drive (get it?)
Course is just about perfect right now. Fairways are coming in nicely and the greens are a bit slow but just about perfect (bermuda). Plus we got around in 3 1/2 hrs (on a Sunday!) which was totally unexpected.
Hi Gray5743044. We appreciate you leaving a review and rating us. We will inform the entire team, so they know their hard work is paying off. We look forward to having you back!
First time playing this course and a place I've wanted to for quite some time. The range is in absolutely awful shape and embarrassing for a course that is in the upper echelon in the Raleigh area. There was confusion to get out of the gate because staff failed to let golfers know that play started off the back side. Course layout is moderately challenging. There are certainly some holes where you can swing away, others you need to plot your way around. Tee boxes do have markers letting golfers know the distance to a hazard, which is a plus. Ball washers are about 2 years past their replacement date. Despite all the rain in the last few days, fairways were in great shape and rough isn't too punishing. Definitely need to be able to work the ball left-to-right on this course, especially off the tee. Quite a few blind tee shots, so shell out the $4 for a yardage book if you've never played. River Ridge runs radio ads in the Raleigh DMA bragging about greens that run 11 on the stimpmeter. While I understand keeping the greens longer in warmer weather, there was absolutely no way they were running 11; They were probably closer to 9.5 or 10. You still needed to be cautious if you were above the hole, but not nearly as punishing as 11. Putts still rolled well as greens were relatively smooth and firm but receptive.
Overall, it's a nice track that is comparable to The Neuse in difficulty, layout, and green speed. Wait until the after-3pm rate to play, and it's supremely disappointing that they don't offer any price reduction if one wants to walk (at least on the website).
The course was in really good condition considering all the rain we’ve had. Fairways were nice, greens were excellent and the staff were very friendly.

Played this course while en route to Raleigh Durham Airport from the coast. Undulating ground and tight fairways make this a challenging track, and the shaping of the greens adds some real difficulty to the putting.
Thoroughly enjoyed it, and would play again if ever in the area. The best value for money I've found in NC.

Loved the Course
Had a great time playing here. Friendly staff. Challenging but fair course. Nice layout.
The course was fantastic. Some of the best greens I’ve played in the area. Rolled true. We’re nice and fast, but also receptive. Layout was fun and challenging. Will definitely be back.
Thanks for the great feedback and 5-star review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your round with us and hope to see you again for another one soon. Thanks for playing River Ridge Golf Club!
A player was not compatible with other players, He enjoyed cigarettes. He didn't care others and his attitudes was not good. Playing was hard time with him.

Good day for golf
Played blue tees with my son and enjoyed the course so much we played 27 holes. Course was in very good shape. From tee boxes to fairway and greens all in great shape for early spring. Greens are fun to play and roll true and fast if putt is downhill. First time playing here and we will be back. It is worth a day of your time to check it out. Layout is fun. Shot making is required.

Waiting for Bermuda
Greens roll true. Layout is pretty nice, but challenging. Still waiting for the Bermuda to come alive but fairways weren’t as bare as some others in the area
