Fun track to practice on. Greens are great and the course is a good value. Tee boxes are rough and the course can get a bit shaggy but you can’t complain for the price and location.

Great course for the value
Course was in great condition, greens rolled true. There is still has water puddles/runoff on cart paths.

Decent course quality, plays very quickly
The greens were hit or miss with the upkeep level. Some of the tee boxes were not setup for our 7am tee time. Otherwise the course is pretty decent for the price and was an enjoyable experience. It also plays very quickly, I finished my round in 3 hours which is about an hour faster than typical.

Rivetside is getting better.
In the past, Riverside was in bad shape. Now it's not. Cudos to the new management team. Greens are good tee boxes not bad, same with fairways.

Not great but a good course
This was my 8th time playing here and the second time in the last two months. They fairways are fair, but I think the greens make up for it. They greens are fast and the pace of play was good. I do recommend this course.

first time playing this course and due to the covid thing we had to walk but on the upside due to this course being so old they have very nice trees for a good game of shade golf. greens are in great condition and so are the fairways. i would recommend checking this place out if you haven't

This course is terrible
The entire course is one giant slab of hard pan. Some driving ranges probably have better greens than this course. The only way I’d play it again is if it were free — and even then, I’d probably pay to play somewhere else.
Hi, JakeHarmatz. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve.

Thank you for playing Riverside Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.
Blast from the past
Really enjoyed walking and playing the former Austin Country Club, now known as Riverside, thinking of Penick, Crenshaw, Kite. A very interesting layout on some nice hills, offering a good walk and lots of fun.
It had rained heavily in the past few days, so there was quite a bit of standing water, no problem with a normal condition. But I do believe they could walk around with a shovel, look for the places where water is standing ABOVE a nice elevation drop and dig a few trenches, clear a few pipes and allow water to flow off the course with minimal effort.

This course is nice and open
Only reason for not getting a better review is because the greens were either as hard as concrete causing the ball to roll constantly, or they had tiny weeds growing causing the putts to bounce. Good open course though, probably really nice in the spring/summer when the ground isn’t so hard.
Thank you for the feedback. It's great to hear you enjoyed the course. Please visit us again soon.
Return to Riverside after over a year
I had a muni season pass last year so between that and the construction on Airport Blvd I didn't make it to Riverside all 2019. My buddy got me out this morning because he said they've been pretty cool with them bringing his kid along, so I brought my one-year-old in a stroller and walked along with him. We weren't the only millennial parents with kids out there.
I was glad to see it was busy. That's typically not the case and while that might be good for pace of place it's less so for the economic viability of the facility which is owned by Austin Community College and it's hard to tell exactly how much they even want to operate it, Support is important because the east side just lost Bluebonnet Hills at the end of '19.
There was some overnight rain so the course was pretty wet. It's not the best-draining course out there. But greens seemed pretty consistent and I always enjoy the walk here - some great trees and gentle roll to the land. I only got to play 10 holes before our kids started tweaking, which is a shame because the back nine is way better. I plan to be back soon and hopefully get in all 18.
It's pretty cool seeing someone from Golf Advisor visiting the course. We're are happy to hear you and your family enjoyed your visit. We don't mind seeing kiddos on the course so please feel free to bring them in the future. We appreciate your support and hope you will visit us again soon.
