Good day

Course is always in good shape. They were doing some maintenance for overseeding the next day but no issues for us. Lot of people out but kept moving along at a good pace. Paired up with a twosome and another single and all good guys and we had a great day. My only negative about this course is the staff in the pro shop. Kinda snotty. But who cares. I play golf and they work. Screw em'

Always a fun time. Course is reality easy with greens challenging. I love to play a practice round Sunday afternoons when the course isn’t busy.

Great Greenskeeper

Very well maintained despite summer season stress. Best bang for your buck in the Phoenix metro area.

Sand!

Great day for an early round. Cooler & cloudy, humid, & the course was in great shape. Riverview had perfect bunkers, which is, unfortunately, a rarity for Phoenix summertime golf. Compliments to the superintendent & staff. Totally enjoyed this course & will be back soon.

Too many 5 Somes

This was a great course, in really good shape and the staff was outstanding. The only downside was the 5 some in front of us along with the 1 or 2 other 5 somes in front of them. It seems to be a common theme in Sun City but overall it was a great day of golf.

Awesome Shape in September

The course is in tremendous shape, lush green fairways and the greens are spotless and smooth. Even the sand traps are fluffy with real sand ... and we’re talking about a golf course in early September with the temperatures still near 110. Definitely worth a visit if you want to play golf on a nice course for little $$$.

Hot but fun

Caught up with a 5some. Slowed me down until they let me play through. No problem on a hot Sunday afternoon but can be a problem on busy days.

Too challenging for a hack

Fairway lies are thin, with sand under the thin grass. Many bare spots. Greens were extremely fast ,with many double and triple breaks. I'm sure a good golfer would find it challenging but not astheticly pleasing. Must love many giant bunkers and sand traps.

Course Conditions

Greens where in good shape with decent speed. Tee Blocks with Fairways where well groomed. Sand traps where very challenging as the windy pushed me to the beach all day. The Sand traps had sand in them as a lot of courses don't it was tough getting out. Course is in Great Shape Ill play here again.

This was the first time that I played this course. I arrived at 6:40 and there was only 1 car in the lot and I thought that I was not in the right place. But I was told that it was just early and it was a popular course. I would definitely play it again. Course was in great shape.
