Great Course, Great Value

For being middle of February this course was still in good shape. Love the two different nine layout and the length of this course. The staff is always friendly and willing to accommodate. The fact the front nine and back nine are two different layouts makes it enjoyable. I would recommend this course to anyone and all abilities.

2 for 1

As others have opined in these reviews this is 2 courses in 1. Flat, longer front, followed by a shorter, more rolling back. While I recommend this course I do so with some reservation. A serious golfer will probably not be interested in playing here. It is an ok course, with some interesting holes, and is reasonably maintained. The staff was friendly and accommodating and it was appropriately priced.

Nice course - lots of hills and big greens

This was a nice course with some different greens that I have not yet seen in this area. Some nice hills and water to offer a different challenge.

management problems

not happy with the treatment of golfnow
.com people at this facility. I have visited there 3 times this year and all three times the mam
nager seems to have a problem with people who play thru golf now tee times. he even referred to me and my dad as you golf now people and seems to dislike that venue. I thought he was aragant and unfriendly. my father and myself will never golf there again.

very nice course. just like every other golf course in the area, the lack of rain has made most of the course extremely hard. fairways and greens were in very nice shape though.

Two courses in one

Riverby has the unique quality of two types of courses from the front 9 to the back 9.
On the front it's flatter and the challenge is more in the length than in the obstructions. There are plenty of trees to negotiate and traps, but mostly if your in the fairways your good to shoot for the green.
On the back, there's more water to play over and blind shots that test you nerves. Putting the two together makes this a fun and challenging golf corse.

Two different nines...back is very challenging for amateur golfers

I've been playing this course since I moved to the area in 2006. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the rates are pretty good anytime of the week.

The green complexes were excellent

The staff were friendly and great. The greens were simply outstanding ...The best I played all year. The front nine was the easier of the two nines. The back nine had a few blind shots...so I wasn't quite sure what to hit off the tee. The rough was short but very penalizing.

Overall I would like to play the course again , now that I know how the layout of the back nine is. I enjoyed the golf course on a very pleasant day.

Golf Now Deal

Got a great deal in golf now, but had to play with random guy which was not a good feature. Afternoon tee times should not need to be pairing people up. Regular prices to play this course are too high. And no cart girl on Sunday afternoon? Course is pretty good shape and I have always like the layout.

Cut the grass

If you are always in the fairway you would be very happy with the course. For those that often play just outside the fairway, good luck. We lost many balls that we saw exactly where they went. This made for a long frustrating day.

Great deal

Pretty standard front nine. Back nine is much more challenging and requires some precision off the tee. Greens were rolling great.

The course is in the best shape ever!

The Greens were very good - fast, not the normal long and slow. The fairways were also very good and tight clean. The rough was challenging, but not poorly maintained. The staff is finally taking playing conditions serious and the membership should like the improvements.

Back 9 nightmare

This course is extremely challenging, more so in the back nine. If you have a slice or push your drives alot get ready to loose some balls in the rolling back nine.

Great mix of water and elevation changes on many holes.

This course was very challenging the day we played and a little beat up from an outing and weather. Excessive rain the last few weeks made for tall & thick rough and the fairways were slow. But, in general, this is a great course. It has many challenging holes. Several require shots along or over water and the terrain is hilly. It is generally well maintained and the fairways and greens are watered; which typically run about a 10 on speed and many are undulating.

The pro shop staff can be surely, at times. However, this day the women in the lounge taking the fees was extremely friendly. We were last in and started on two (our decision) due the scramble groups on 1 running late. This would have drawn the ire of the pro shop guy for sure. But, she was very accommodating and had no problem with us finishing on 1 at dark.

If you haven't played it, you should.

Enjoy playing this course very much. This is my fourth time to course this year and each time has been very satisfying!

Very easy access to course from route 23. Very pretty course. Can play off of back tees for difficulty or move up to white tees for the average player. Staff was excellent to get us on course and ended up asking a ranger to play with us. He gave us helpful hints at where we wanted to be to attack the greens.

Good course condition, challenging holes.

I thought course was in great shape. A little hard to find the ball in the rough but fairways and greens were good.
