The course is in great shape and the green undulations and area around the greens demands a good short game. Bunkers in great shape.

Have played this course a number of times. It plays well for an average Joe golfer. Made it around in great time. The greens are in great shape. Always a challenge there because of the undulations. Will play it again, I am sure.

Have played this course several times and it is always in good shape with great greens that one needs to play a few times to figure out. Played on Super Bowl Sunday in Less than 3 hours as a twosome. Got a good deal on Golf Now and would recommend the course to everyone in the Sun City area.

Mostly a good experience - good layout, wide fairways and good undulating greens. Our 3 some was bumped to a 5 some, which we weren’t happy about, however the young fellows who were added were a pleasure and we all had a fun round. On the downside our tee time of 7:52 on the back side and the first few holes directly into the rising sun was brutal.

These folks know how to run a golf facility. The track is thoughtfully laid out to challenge all handicaps. The fairways are lush and greens fast and at times difficult.

The staff is extremely friendly... the best!

While the course itself is not very long, it is still quite challenging. The greens complexes are extremely tough. Miss it in the wrong place and you are looking at a tough up and down or a 3 putt. Course conditions are very good namely tees, greens and fairways.

I have played this course many times...they re-did the green complexes a couple of years ago and made the short game and putting more difficult ( interesting )..other than the greens this course is fairly easy..the course is usually in good condition tee to green...off the rough line is dirt ..the staff in VERY friendly especially Jay behind the desk...the problem is pace of play...not unusual for Sun City courses..SLOW SLOW SLOW...as the summer approaches the pace of play should get better...i'll be back.....later

Have played this course 10 times and as before the greens are in great shape but VERY UNDULATING !!

I usually have 28-32 putts a round but every time on this course it's close to 40 and all the other players score about the same, plenty of sand in bunkers , fairways in good condition, pace of play a little slow at 4:20 hrs but after all it's Sun City so you have a few walkers & not all players are concerned about the pace of play, but the break on most putts will bring looks of amazement ...rolly polly greens

I had a great time. The only problem was a foursome in front of us were very senior and a little slow. It took us 2:45hrs to finish the front nine. After that we finished the back in 1:47hrs.

Riverview is a typical Sun City course. Nice wide fairways, not too difficult. Greens with lots of slope to keep things interesting. Fairways are firming up this time of year. Greens still receive shots reasonably well.

Good value.

First let me state that I really like this golf Course! What I don't like is the priority of the group's. We had an 8:00 Tee and went off the first hole. When we got to the turn we were told to check in with the pro shop. There we were told that there was a twosome and a fivesome in front of of and had to wait. I was always told that players at the turn had priority over new tee times. They didn't care. I guess I will play North, South or Willow creek going forward. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.
