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.

Horrible conditions

After the rain we had in Austin,, the course should have been closed. It was like playing in a swamp. Several lakes in the middle of the fairways, the bunkers were lakes and the overall experience
sucked. And the fact they charged regular prices was a joke. I will never play here again and would not recommend it.

Nothing special about Riverside, but it’s a terrific, basic course. Doesn’t play too tough. The old ACC is a great bang for your buck round. Would definitely return again.

Good bang for your buck in austin

Course was in decent condition, greens were not. It’s hit or miss on green conditions. Staff are great bathrooms and water coolers on the course. Pace of play is good. Course is pretty wide open not a lot of hazards and shorter than most in Austin.

Great Historical Course on the Rise!!

This historical course is quickly becoming the best value in the Austin market. Austin Community College owns the course and has provided the funds and backing to substantially improve this great layout to former fame. The Head Golf Professional along with an excellent staff has quickly improved playing conditions and this course is truly a course that is in better condition every time we play it. We love the layout and it has a great selection of challenging holes. We highly recommend this must play course!!

Good Austin golf value

Overall a good golf value. The layout is a little odd because the clubhouse is not between the 9th and 10th greens. So if you expect to get a drink or snack at the turn that may not happen. Also the course starts with a par three followed by a short par four, so pace early can be a little slow.

None of that is fatal though. This track was once the Austin Country Club and many of the holes have a classic 1950s feel to them. The front nine is a little shorter, and requires good pitches and chips. The back nine has some great long pars fours and fives, so bring your driver.

It's well-cared for and often quite scenic. No practice range, but a very nice practice green. Friendly staff.

water features

Because it rained on 07/07/2018 when we played on 07/08/2018 it was wet and or muddy in several bunkers across the course. Otherwise the course is in very good condition. The reason not excellent there are a handful of greens that are just bad. An example is #3. the fringe is bad all around the green.All the tee boxes were in good condition minus just one that had rain related damage from the day before. Failrways were excellent except for 4. 4 now has a water hazard to the right of the green but it should be gone by the endof the week.

Play Riverside

I hadn’t played Riverside in a long time. Really enjoyed myself. The staff was extremely friendly. The corse was in great shape. A couple of the usual suspect greens had their problem spots but the maintenance crew seemed to be aware and placed pins where the greens were great. Ifyouhavent played Riverside in some time I recommend you give it a chance.

not bad for compared to a year ago

The course was in better shape that a year ago. you could define the Fairways versus the Rough. Greens 14 of the 18 greens are in good shape the other 4 still have bald spots and fungs, but playable.

This course needs a lot of care done to it

Just about all the greens have big bare spots. The fairways also has bare spots all over.
