RiverEdge Golf Course
River Edge Golf Course in Marshfield, Wis. is one of the most affordable rounds in the area. Opened in 1967, the course has a more traditional layout that is shorter than modern courses at 6,545 yards from the back tees. It's player friendly enough to appeal to a wide range of skill levels. Beginners can take on the golf course with confidence since it's not overly formidable, but it still provides some good practice. The terrain is mostly flat with a few subtle contours that can be tricky. Water hazards come into play on a few holes and there are also a few strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides. Besides the wallet-friendly rates and the player-friendly design, the restaurant at River Edge G.C. is known for its popular Friday night fish fry.

Greens still recovering
The par fours are longer than I am used to playing (several over 400 yards) which called for long drives and long approach shots to green moderately guarded by bunkers. This old growth course also calls for well placed tee shots. Some of the holes were severe doglegs which called for placing shots instead of just hammering a driver. The water is well placed and affects shot placement as well. The only drawback this season is that the winter was so severe in this area that the greens have had a hard time recovering. We compromised and dictated to each other that we would not count more than two putts per green. We played on a Friday morning. One twosome was ahead of us but they let us play through with a wave and a smile.
The greens are in terrible shape. Only one green was actually puttable. Very expensive place and the course is in bad shape.
greens in ruogh shape
most greens in bad shape, if you can enjoy a good layout course using a 2 put rule good value , if you need greens to be happy forget it.
Alright I guess
Course is in rough shape. The greens were half dead making putting tough. There were 3 of 18 holes with reasonable greens. Fairways were alright. It seems to me that with all the water there should be no problem keeping the greens decent.
It was cheap so I’m not really complaining, the greens were just in laughably bad condition.
LEAVE YOUR PUTTER AT HOME
The course should not be open as almost all greens had severe winter kill and are not conducive to putting (lumpy, bumpy, no true roll).....
Nice public course
It’s a nice course for the average golfer. There are some wide open holes but others with woods on both sides of fairways. Water also comes into play on a number of holes. It’s not a very scenic course but not an eyesore either. The course was in good condition especially considering how dry it has been. Have played it twice now this summer and wouldn’t hesitate to go again using a Hot Deal from GolfNow.
Good value for the money on golfnow. Senior tees are pretty short, so we play white even though we are seniors. Nice course to play
No beverage service or lunch available when we were there. Tee time was at 8:30. Would have stuck around for lunch but they didn't open until 2:00. Otherwise course was in good shape.
Nice course, got lost getting there but employee was very cordial and understanding about us being ten minutes late. Thanks, we will be back!
The course was a little wet but it was great play in The Greens were phenomenal
Scenic and Challenging; Have Clubs, Will Travel
This is a very pretty course, with plenty of challenges for all skill levels. Water hazards in the form of both ponds and the river came into play on several holes. The course has several holes carved through the woods, with only a few holes with houses and other structures within view. Some long Par 4's which require a long drive, but just as many short 4's which require strategically placed shots. The greens were well maintained. The only complaint were the Tee Boxes on some holes were a little sparse. The Staff was friendly, and the value for the money was outstanding. Overall 4.5 stars. Planning on driving the easy 60 minute trek to play here again.
Couldn't get going
It's a nice course but couldn't believe how many times I was unable to find my ball just off the fairway due to all the cut grass laying around. I guess you just need to hit it in the fairway every time like the pros, right? The worst thing for me was the pace of play which was terrible. When it is busy, they need someone to keep people moving!
great course-bad results
course was in good condition considering how much rain we have gotten in the area. We struggled but it was more the rust of not playing then the course.
Great day of golf!
From the start, a great day of golf. Friendly service, well maintained course, great pace, all contributed to a pleasurable day of golf.
The only thing missing was my putting game!
Fairways had too much dead grass clippings, rough could of been mowed shorter than what it is.
Not worth the money unless paying a discounted rate
Hole 10's green was literally all sand and dead grass, the following holes tee box was all mud and beat up. Unless you golf this course at a discounted rate do not even bother.
