Great Condition

River ridge is always in a good shape.

This time (9/10/2108) was no different.

Almost no dead spot on tee box, fairways, and greens.

A little complain: Greens were great but they were not fast enough for 5 star course. (they were fast but we wanted faster )

Best course in Raleigh area.

In great shape

Course has really perked up through the summer after the frost kill in spring. Great shape and greens are perfect a few weeks after sand topping. Short but tests all of your game...especially putting.

Slioowwww

I’ve always enjoyed playing at River Ridge in the past but today was a disaster. The group in fronted us was extremely slow and didn’t offer to allow us to play through. There was no attempt on the part of the course staff to keep things moving. It was painful.

Aerated Greens PLEASE READ

Only writing this review as it seems the course did not report that it was aerating greens to GolfNow. Punched on 7-10-2018, would wait another week or so before booking.
