good course overall

course is in good shape. the issue was some person booke a fivesome in front of us. So there was 5 plays booked one minute apart so we just stuck behind them all day and of course our pace of play was slowed because of this. The golf marshall on the first tee box apologized for it but that never should have happened ever.

Riverside Golf Course - Austin

Hidden gem! Tight course that has its subtle difficulties. Beautiful oak trees surround the course causing you to forget you’re in the middle of the city. The course is in excellent shape in the middle of a dry, hot, August.

Open Fairways

Lots of open fairways to load up on the driver if desired. Course maintenance keeps the grass in check; no driving range to warm up on and no drink cart; Hopefully they have someone for that during weekend play

Riverside

I always enjoy my round at Riverside, I hear complaints of green condition but with as much rain we have been getting most courses are suffering with greens. The check in staff is always pleasant and first name usage is very courteous.

Othing special

Riverside is a pretty easy low stress track. Fairways are in good shape and rough areas are well maintained. Right now the greens are in poor shape and have been heavily sanded.

It’s coming back into shape

There is still a lot to be done at this course to make it equal other courses in the area. A few greens had some problems. Greens were cut low and were fast. Fun to play. Challenging par 5 or 2 and a couple very challenging par 4’s. Ball is gone if you hit the rough. Look forward to plying again because the price is right.

Easy Warm up or Practice

The course is set up to be fairly easy. Very short course and wide open. Just don't get stuck behind the slow guys, I passed two groups of folks during the round. Both had two guys within each. Greens were really bad on at least 6 holes. Sand was like concrete and fairways were poor. If you just want some holes to play and practice on this might be the place.

One and done

This course was brutal....many greens had bare patches or were chewed up, pace of play was so slow because of the many fivesomes playing ahead of us that we quit after nine. Can give some slack about the water on course but condition overall was poor. Spend your money elsewhere.

My new favorite course in Austin

This course is challenging and is in fine shape. I had a 9am tee time and had been hit with nearly SEVEN INCHES OF RAIN the night before.

The course is aptly named, "Riverside". And there was a lot of water running/standing in places which are usually dry. Cart path only was an understatement.

The course dried out quickly (less than two hours). The greens were in great shape.

Every member of the staff I met was a joy.

This Austin Muni is my new favorite.

Course Keeps Getting Better and Better

This course continues to get better every time we play it! This old historic course is well on its way to becoming a great Austin course and extremely fun course to play. We are excited how great the greens are coming in and look forward to a great Spring and Summer season. Excellent management sure has paid off as playing conditions are great and will continue to exceed expectations! Thanks ACC for returning this course to its historic conditions by hiring a great GM, Staff, and grounds super.

Great course in Austin

This is a nice all around course that offers up an opportunity to various types of shots as the course changes from a woodlands style to more of a parkland layout. The greens are smaller and have lots of subtle breaks that were truly fun to play. The fairways were generous and in good shape. I would definitely play this course again.

Like the course, just not that day.

The amount of people playing that day was crazy. Saw at least 2 5somes playing as I drove up. Took 3 hours to play 9 holes. Waited so long we stopped after 10. Like the convenience and location of Riverside. The staff is super friendly and chill. The course itself is what you’d expect for Austin in February. Not the best.
