After playing two courses just days before at twice to three times the price I have to say that few if any DFW courses pack the punch of value vs. course the way that Riverchase does. The course layout is fun while the greens are in much better condition that course at twice the price. Pace of play was really fluid. It’s not a long course even from the tips but it will provide a great even paced round for those looking for a bit of a challenge while having a great time.

We had a very early tee time. As we arrived we were greeted as regulars. The staff made sure we were taken care of and knew all about the course. We were a twosome but the pace of play was reasonable. Will be back to play again.

We pull up to #1 two minutes late, but the group ahead of us is just finishing up their tee shots. The starter was rude from the get go. As we are waiting to tee off on #2 (we waited to tee off on every single hole), the group behind us passed on a message from the starter to "hurry up". Again, I'd like to stress that we waited on the group ahead of us to hit almost every one of our drives and fairway shots. From then on the group behind us felt pressured into hurrying and hit into us three times. 1st shot into us bounced off the top of our cart and nearly missed our heads. 2nd shot hit off the tire of my cart. 3rd shot was into our carts as we left the green for the next hole.

All could have been avoided if the starter realized we weren't the problem. I have played this course a few times, and it is completely average. I won't be playing this course any time soon due to the starter's attitude, quality of the course compared to other local options, and the extremely slow pace of play. We teed off at 7:25am and were waiting the entire round.

Advise to the course...send actual marshalls out to speed up play...don't pass along messages to "hurry up" through other golfers trying to enjoy their round as well.

We teed off 30 minutes late on Saturday just before 9:00. 5 hour 10 minute round. Waiting on most teeboxs. This was due to the course booking their tee sheet every 8 minutes. They also allowed some groups to jump on without tee times according to the starter.

Layout is good. I typically score my average here. It has enough holes designed to keep it interesting but also some less creative ones.

Teebox’s and bunkers need attention.

Greens were below average.

Fairways were good.

We saw the cart girl often.

Driving range has been terrible for years. Hard to find good grass, mats needed replacement 5 years ago.

Cart paths need major repair work throughout course.

In recent years this has always been a good value course, that typically has decent course conditions. Not so much today. The pace of play due to poor management was very disappointing. I will look to play other courses in the area before returning to Riverchase for a while.

I highly recommend this course. The holes play shorter than they look. It is in very good shape. The greens rolled good. It is a very nice layout. The only negative was slow play. A scramble tournament was underway and we got behind 4 players with 2 team members who seemed to be beginners. With a little etiquette on speeding up play in a scramble our round would have been great. The practice green is a nice walking distance from the clubhouse but they provided carry and pickup service. Very friendly staff.

This course was $30.00 with the golf now app, we saw the cart girl 7 times during our round, which is 5 times the average I’m accustomed to on DFW courses, well worth the money and the pace of play was pretty good.

We had a tee time 1 :23pm. When I checked in there was tournament flag sign I asked the front desk guy he said tournaments already finished. But when we started to play they still going on. Even the tournament players cut in to our playing. In this situation they shoud not making a tee time.

It was bad experience and we stopped to play we finished 9 holes.

This course was an immediate favorite but there is a major issue with it being overbooked. The pace of play was incredibly slow, taking 5 hours for 18 holes even with a few groups let's our two-some pass through. Great, great course but the pace of play was the worst I've seen in years.

I wanted to like the course, but I had a terrible experience on Sun 4/29, and I will never play here again.

Upon arrival I had to wait 30 minutes to get a golf cart. I played 9 holes in 2.5 hours but it felt even slower. The course is not in good shape. Overall I was very disappointed and didn't stay to play the back 9.

I will not return to this course.

Enjoy playing this course, nice layout where you can score. Fairways and greens are in good shape; however, many tee boxes are very uneven [ difficult to have a flat lie] and several are dirt. For the money still a nice tract.
