Course was in top condition and played very fair. 35 dollars was a great bargain and only drawback was not much of a 19th hole so fuel up to eat elsewhere before playing 18.

It rained on us a fair amount and had rained quite a bit the nigjt before but in spite of that the course played very well...must have some good drainage! And the overall condition was fantastic! You will not be disappointed!

As of May 1. 2018, River Ridge is the best golf course in Triangle under $50

Some areas are still yellow in fairways but the greens are perfect and very fast.

This course is where you need to play in RTP area at this moment.

Great course that always challenges me. We had a twosome in front of us that wouldn’t let us play through for 8 holes. Greens, fairways, tee boxes, and bunkers all well maintained.

My only complaint about this course is the pace of play. It took us 5 hours to play 18. The course was in perfect shape for early spring and greens were emasculate. There are tee boxes suitable for all skill sets and the course is very forgiving. The pin placements were set in really tough positions making for a frustrating day on the greens. Overall, I fully recommend this course!

Conditions were to be expected for this time of year and the greens looked (and putted) like they’d recently been punched but overall great value.

New carts with USB ports are a great addition.

It looks like everyone at River Ridge is trying to get the course in peak form for the future and I’m excited to see the changes.

The layout of this course is something you typically don't find at a discounted public course. The greens did not look great, but they sure played perfectly! In fairness, the weather has been brutal to the greens, but what I'm saying is don't let the looks of the greens fool you- these are extremely quality greens!

We zipped through 18 holes in under 4 hours on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

River Ridge is a great course. The conditions are always good. New greens are running true and quick. This is one of my go-to courses in this area.

I usually play this course about 30 times per year and I've never had anything but a great experience!

For windy and wet conditions, River Ridge was in really good shape. I enjoyed some of the holes that challenged you to get over water, but position the landing for the next hit. Some of the uphill par 3s were tough, but fair. I would definitely come back again when I'm in the area.

Awesome greens for late winter-early spring. Different setup than most courses so a refreshing change. Range and range balls need some work but overall a great experience.
