wheres the deal
I ordered agroupon for this course and paid 2.50 extra for the privelege of using groupon. The course was in the worst shape I have ever seen any course ever.
The staff was friendly and the couple I played with
made it very enjoyable and fun despite the conditions
Extra small greens
Haven't played one this rough in a long time.I think not only these are the smallest greens I have ever played but in pretty rough shape to.No grass in the fairways just weeds it really is sad to charge anyone money to play this course.I can only hope that some day somebody could fix this course for the members there.
Short,and to the point...Don`t waste your money...
This course is not worth the cost. Starting with the Tee box to the greens, it was horrible. It was hard to follow the layout. There are many holes missing the hole # at the tee. Some holes were hard to follow as the cart paths weren’t clear. At one point we got turned around and had to search for the next hole. For $28 I wasn’t expecting a great course but this should have been $10-$15.
I found the course layout to be very good. The fairways are tight and challenging. The maintenance of the course leaves a lot to be desired. The fairways are bare in many places with seemed like more weeds than grass and the greens are slow. I told my friend that if I could I would buy the course because it could be a 3 or 4 Star Course with a little maintenance and minor redesign of some very tight holes.
since the course is an old cow pasture it needs to be brought up to date. the fairways are still like the old cow pastures. they were sandy and not too grassy. although the greens rolled reasonably straight they were also very sandy and rough
A hidden treasure.
This course is a little off the beaten path. It doesn't have all the frills of the country club circuit but serves nicely. There is water on 3/4 of the course. it's tight in some places so being straight is paramount. Course like most in the area has just done it's over seeding. Staff is super friendly and pace of play is always good. Check it out!
Felt like I was playing in a cow pasture
I can't complain too much because it was only $8. But still the conditions of this course could have been better. It was very narrow and the holes were too close to each other . Very swampy , the grass was really high . The lady at the club house was nice though. FYI the clubhouse is a trailer , and they had a cool food truck up front
The course is under new management/ownership since May 1 and we have been working hard to make everyone's experience enjoyable. To clarify....the holes are close together, as it is green to tee, just like a Donald Ross course, which is great for walking. Most courses now days are spread out so far, that it makes it difficult to walk the course, especially in the heat. Ours is not. The course is NOT swampy. I hope you realize that we had over 12 inches of rain within a few weeks of the time you played. That is over and beyond an extreme amount of rain for any course. The clubhouse is not a "trailer" it is a 2000 square foot building that we have just renovated and have added large screen tv's, comfortable seating, ice cream, sandwiches, beer, sodas, snacks etc. Half of the building is used for our golf clubhouse. We do have a food truck that comes typically on the last Wednesday of the month from 11am-2pm for our Ladies League. We have many leagues, play day events, clinics and more. Lots for the entire family including juniors under the age of 15 play FREE on Saturdays and Sundays after 1pm with a paying adult. Our course is challenging , yet fair and we welcome all skill levels while we also are very accommodating, as we don't have a dress code, no tee times and just want all to have fun. No rangers to push you to play faster, no staff to tell you what you can and cannot wear or to hurry to the tee. I guess that is why so many have found this hidden gem in Green Cove Springs. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.
Fun and Friendly Place
I played River Bend last evening in their Wednesday Scramble and really had a great time. When I arrived I was immediately greeted with a friendly smile and felt right at home. The new owner has done a tremendous job upgrading the course and the clubhouse and has many plans for future improvements and cool events. I know the new owner personally. She is a PGA/LPGA professional and someone who is dedicated to the game of golf and making it a fun experience for people of all levels and ages. Whether you are brand new to golf or have played for years, River Bend is a place you can feel at home...it's a relaxed atmosphere. The clubhouse is a cool little spot to hang out and the course is challenging but fun. Give this place a chance and I guarantee that every time you go back you will see more and more improvements...and make friends along the way.
