River Falls GC

River Falls from the blue tees always presents a stern challenge. While the course was in overall good shape, the greens seemed like they may not have been mowed that day even though I wouldn't classify them as slow. They have done a nice job at RF with trying to make the course better. I have played RF a few times a year for quite some time and they finally converted the terrible par-5 #5 to a par 4. While I agree with this decision, I was not used to the aiming points and the challenge presented when trying to stop balls on that green. I think this will be a good change for the course as the large, new tee box begins to take shape. I always enjoy playing RF, it is a stern challenge especially in the conditions we had. For $40 it is hard to find any courses in the area that present that challenge for the value.

Local gem

This course is one my favorites in the area. Just over the border near Hudson, this course is always well maintained and the staff are friendly and accommodating. I’ve played 4 rounds here this year and the pace of play, friendliness, and conditions have always exceeded my expectations.

Great course conditions, with a mediocre course design

In summary, this is a very well-maintained course with a couple of really bad hole layouts (#5 and 15) and a
few boring holes. Let's just break it down. The first three holes are a decent start. Nothing overly challenging. The 4th hole, I've grown to appreciate. The 5th hole is a complete disaster off the tee. It's too bad, because the last three hundred yards to the green would make a good par-5 if not for the tee shot. The 6th through the 9th hole are probably the best holes on the course. The back nine is pretty uneventful. A lot of straightforward holes with little challenge. The par-3 17th is an interesting Par 3 and the best on the course, although that's not saying much.

Very good local course

Played on a wet day in chilly conditions. Course has been here many years, but it was in the best condition I've ever seen. Grass everywhere, thick rough, great greens. Local knowledge really helps on this course, as some hazards are not obvious, and long straight drives are not always rewarded. I'd certainly play again.

Challenging course- very hot day

Have played course before, Challenging, Course was very soft, not much roll. Some green were punched, was told that they were not when I called in about being done. Don't like playing on poor condition, ( being punched). For being a very hot day there was not a beverage cart. Did have water on the course, which was a good thing. Second nine was very slow playing. Waited on every shot.

Great Course

This course is always kept in excellent shape. The layout is good, not too long, and some challenging holes. Not for the novice player, but the course is fair. There are no gimmicky shots here. Staff is friendly, and pricing is great. I iwsh they had memberships available, as I would sign up immediately. Only 30 minutes or so from the Twin Cities. Suprosed it isn't played more...

Favorite course

I had never played this course until this summer and now it is the one I try to play the most. Great views, it is in great shape, and probably my favorite greens in the area. I just love putting on them. I'm not the kind of guy to write reviews, but you should definitely try this course out.

Love this place!

Our 4-some comes here for the golf, so we can't tell you if the food is great (it looks good) or if it's a great place to have a reception. The golf, however, is really fun and challenging. The views, also, are not to be ignored and are some of the finest in the area. The course is well-maintained and manicured, the greens are true, and the staff is friendly and helpful. What else can you ask for?

Old style golf course

Traditional course. Tree lined w/small greens. Wide fairways w/most holes dogleg left or right. A lot of blind shots, recommend taking cart & driving ahead to see where you should be aiming if you are not familiar w/course. You can easily play 3 wood or hybrid off most tees. Greens in good condition & run at moderate speed w/some having quite a bit of humps in them. Parts of course don't seem to drain well - felt like you were hitting in a bog. Want to go back as will score better playing it a 2nd time.

Frequent visitor

Very helpful to have prior knowledge of this course since positioning of tee shot is critical on several holes. Course was busy and we played behind a fivesome - who offered to allow us to play through on the 8th hole, but we deferred since a foursome ahead of them was playing slower than the five players ahead of us. Took almost 4 hours to play when we are used to finishing 18 holes in under 3 hours.

Heavy rain

I have used Golf Now many times. I have always been satisfied....until now. We teed off and it began to sprinkle. By the time we hit our second shot it was raining way to hard to play. I called about a refund as I drove home. I was told that since I bought a prepaid hot deal, that the course would have to have been closed, in order to get a refund! Golf courses don't close when it rains!! I am very disappointed!!!!

Nice Course

The course is pretty accessible since it is less than a mile off of 35. I booked it as at the last minute and got an incredible rate through GolfNow. Some challenging holes, including a few with some blind hazards. Would definitely play here again

Tough Greens

We played on a day when it hadn't rained for a few days. The course was in great shape, but the greens were very fast and difficult to read.
Overall, it is a nice course and very good value. We'll definitely go there again.
