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.

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.
It is what it is
I play Riverside frequently because it’s inexpensive but it’s the cheapest option in Austin for a reason. Pretty short, tight lies in fairways, and bald greens make for sub-par conditions but it’s still a fun time as you can score fairly easily out there. Also, BYOB is a big plus.
Thank you for your feedback. Please come back again soon.
Thank you for visiting us at Riverside Golf Course. We appreciate your 4-star rating and review. We hope you join us for another round soon.
Good for the price!
Played twice, and the 2nd time I appreciated this design a bit more then the first. The front 9 is tight, elevated and short (2686 yards from the white). The back is much more wide open and quite a bit longer (3110 yards).
This could be a very nice course if they groomed the fairways, but the greens were in nice shape. The biggest complaint I had is the fairways were in rough shape, so your playing off hard packed dirt. Next time I plan on using more woods, and put away the irons.
Overall, not a bad experience for cheap. Can be very challenging due to the course conditions, and elevations.

Decent course for the price
Course was in decent shape. Fairways were a little rough but greens were fine. Pretty short course, but ok to get a round in on.
Thank you for the nice review. Please come visit us again soon.
I have always like to play at riverside (old ACC) there are plenty of fun holes and short par fours were there average joe can have a chance to score. The only problem is there seems to not be a lot of grass on the greens but it just maybe winter conditions. I’m no expert! The history of the course and the great players who have graced the fairways and greens should be enough for any local or tourists to want to come out and play.
Thank you for your feedback. It is great to hear that you are frequent visitors. We love our regulars! We also love that you appreciate the history of our course. Not everyone knows that we were originally Austin Country Club. Thanks again for the nice review and we hope to see you again soon.
Great Layout & Course Condition
This is the old Austin country club iand the layout is really good. The course was in excellent condition, the greens are solid grass and very fast. I highly recommend this course especially for the value and condition.
Thank you for the nice review. We are happy to hear you enjoy layout of the course. We hope you'll come out and visit us again soon.
