Fun round

Rio Pinar is always a fun course to play. Old style, long course, some long par 4's to look out for. Only complaint and that was the roughs hadn't been mowed in a month or so, so stay in the fairway haha

Great Track

Such a great feel to the course! Also pretty forgiving as well, not many forced carries and can spray it a bit and get away with it. The course was in great shape. The green were punched about 5 weeks ago And with the rainy season the are starting to roll!

Challenging

Lots of fun to play. Greens had been punched recently so they were tough to putt, but the layout is classic and always fun to play. Keep it in the fairway!

Father's Day - Out of Carts - Horrible Experience

My buddy made our tee time several days before our outing on Sunday June 16 (Father's Day). We got to the course at 9:30 with a tee time of 9:52 and paid our fees. Upon check-in, we were told that the course was out of carts and that it would be 25 minutes and our cart was on the 17th hole. Since that would have only put us 5 minutes later than our tee time we agree and proceeded with patience. At 10:10, we still didn't see any carts and finally at 10:20 we saw a cart on the 18th fairway. We then were told that was not our cart, and in fact the 4-some behind them were not our carts as well. These members were making the turn because they started on the 10th hole and after the 18th hole, they were headed to the 1st hole. We were then told that our cart was on the 16th hole. We finally got our cart at 10:50 (nearly one hour past our scheduled tee time) and we teed off at approximately 11:00. We had family obligations at 3:00 PM on Father's day, so we knew that this was going to be tough to get in all 18. It started to rain and severe lightning on the 16th hole at 2:30 and we decided to leave to make it to our family obligations on time. This was an unfortunate event with minimal planning and execution with cart distribution. I was not offered compensation or a future discount as a result of this experience. The only thing I was offered free balls on the driving range but I was scared that we would lose our place in line waiting waiting for a cart. The course was in good shape, but it's the experience with the carts leaves a bad taste in my mouth and will impact my future course choice and I will be sharing this experience with other family, friends, and neighbors.

Better bring patients.

When I got to the course it was very busy and when I checked in I found out why. They only had 48 carts for a packed tee sheet. My group waited for an hour after my tee time to get on the course. When we finally got out the course was in pretty sad shape and the greens had been airificated without any prior notice on Golfnow or when we checked in. We we’re only able to get 8 holes in because rain moved in to the area. Between my tee time being moved an hour later and then waiting another hour just to get out it was a very frustrating Father’s Day on the course. Very DISAPPOINTED in how the the day turned out.

Bad management

We had a tee time set at 9:52 AM but did not tee off until 10:50 due to no carts available. We then were stuck behind groups coming off the back nine because they started on #10 due to a group of 16 people showing up without a tee time and the course getting them into play. Just bad management.
