Nice track

I played it after it had rained all the previous day. Surprisingly the course played very well and the greens were fast. We played in about 4 hours 15 minutes. Quite a bit of bunkers and water can come into play on a few holes.

Terrible Condition

First time playing this course, picked it because of the good rating. How it got a 4 stars is a mystery to our group. The greens belong at a par king putt, putt. The only thing the greens are missing is a windmill. Fairways are cut too short and rough is total hard pan.

Fire the starer!!!

The moron behind the desk is a total , jerk and extremely rude. He runs around like a chicken with his head cut off. We will never golf rhere again because of him. Compared to the other Sun City couse employees who rate at 10's this guy is a total zero

Too much....

Overall course was in pretty decent condition with one BIG exception, way, way, way too much sand was in the traps. Management needs to do a better job of maintaining their sand traps especially if you want to speed up play a bit.....

5 hour round

Riverview is a decent layout but this year lies are generally tight and bermuda is completely worn out in high traffic areas around the greens leaving golfers with a difficult chip out of mud if you miss the green. Greens are good and accept the ball beautifully.Bunkers are full of very deep very heavy sand so if you get out in 1 shot, consider yourself lucky. Pace of play was 5 hours. No Marshal in sight.

very nice day

We showed up for golf and were treated very well in the pro shop and were sent off early. Although the course was filled we managed to complete an enjoyable round in less than 4 hours. Visited many traps and the sand is better (actually have some) than any course played in the west valley. The greens putted true and the course was very plush considering it is rye over-seed. Will be back soon.

Nice course, but busy.

Challenging length from the white tees. Some greens very undulated to the point of unfair. Greens and fairways in good condition.

Nice course overall

Great course with good challenge. Found bunkers with deep sand challenging as sand was 4-5” deep and difficult to get ball out with accuracy. Greens were fast but fair fora good putter. Fairways were good and quality of course was very good overall.
