Fair course at best

Paid $59.00 online only to find out when checking in they want $20.00 extra per person more to take a cart (in small print on course description). All fairways were roped off due to over-seeding. $79.00 on a weekday to play this course is way to expensive. Not a very good deal .

Terrible Shape

Course is in really bad shape. Paid $59+ $20 per person for a cart. They don’t have GPS on the carts anymore. Tee boxes were so bad and several holes the tee boxes were way up and at the ladies tees. Course was several hundred yards shorter. Fairways were terrible. Greens were ok but very very slow. Overall not worth the money at all. Conditions were worst I’ve played at in SD in last 6 months. Waste of money.

Cost for money

Overall, the golf course was in good condition. But the fairway grass wasn't good. But I was satisfied in terms of cost performance

Could be great but it isn't

This course is always over booked and plays terribly slow and kept it moderate shape. Also the course was playing so slow we were able to keep pace playing as a seven some.

Too much water on course!

Over watering of the course made it sloppy. Other than than that, course was good. Greens rolled better than average.

Not worth the greens fees

The course is in really bad shape yet they want to start almost $70 for $18 and a cart. Per person. Where do you get off? Driving range doesn’t even have grass, it’s just a field of dirt... not that it really matters but come on. $10 for a bucket of 50 balls and this is the conditions they maintain? Unfortunate it’s in the condition that it is and costs what it does, a really conveniently located course otherwise.

Course conditions calls for cheaper green fees

Pros:
- Central SD
- moderately challenging
- not busy (weekday morning)
- staff was friendly and helpful
- walkable

Cons:
- conditions were poor — several areas where it was very slushy, large repair areas, leaves looked like they hadn’t been raked in days (making is very difficult to locate the ball), and during play some of the greens literally where the pin is was being watered by staff literally before were a few shots away.
- some holes had obnoxiously large bunkers that actually stretched a good amount of the fairway.
- the cost for this course was not fair for this type of course - subpar conditions, midweek with no cart. If it were $15 cheaper I’d say that’s about right.
- somewhat boring; not much elevation and most of the holes tend to seem the same. No signature hole that is memorable

Riverwalk is way underrated

Riverwalk was a pleasure today. From all the courses I've played on golfnow, it is by far the most underrated. Yes they charge extra for the cart (VERY walkable course), the fairways are a little rough in spots (lift, clean and place approved) and I admit the tee boxes are pretty beat up (isn't that what tees are for). But the layout is real nice, close to championship quality, and the greens were just pristine today. Rolled in two 30' putts even. Since the course is a little overlooked, it's mainly regulars so I found the pace of play and friendliness of the people to be superb. Was matched with a regular player and we just had a heck of a time! 7am tee time, twosome following a couple groups and we still played in 3+30. I'm super glad I found this place and will gladly come back when visiting San Diego. Thank you Riverwalk for a real nice "river walk!"

Tee time was about 8am. Course was very wet. Tee boxes in horrible condition.
Making one person prepay for the foursome is inconvenient! If all players pay cart fees in person why can't we pay course fees in person?
