good and bad

Played behind a tournament so it was brutally slow to start but the starter suggested that we move over tio the Friars nine to finish the round. Great move. The Mission nine was in good shape but the greens were a little spongy and kind of slow. The Friars nine is a mess and most of the fairways are roped off but the tees and greens were OK. It was worth it and probably turned a five hour round into a little over four.

Shoddy fairways; good greens

First time in a year playing Riverwalk. Really surprised and disappointed at the poor condition of the fairways. Patchwork of ground under repair everywhere. Maybe one of the few courses in the county that is hurt by the rain because it’s in a flood plain. Upside was the greens, which were in very good condition, though a little fuzzier than most courses in the area. Bunkers are very good too. Pace was awesome. Played in less than 4 hours and it was decently busy. Price was right with GolfNow. Wouldn’t pay more than about $35 at this point.

Nice track, bring water!!

Our day on Riverwalk was enjoyable. The pace of play was fine for a Sunday with our 18-holes taking just a tad over 4-hours. There was a snack/beer cart on the course but it was challenging to get service. Suggest that you bring plenty of your own water if it is at all warm out. The greens were fun and the course overall was well groomed. I would play here again.

Great layout, just missing maintenance

I get it, the owners are planning on 4k residential units on the north 9. But its unfortunate their money grab in real estate will be more important than a community gem like Riverwalk. I have to give the staff at Riverwalk a huge applause. Karl with players assistance dug deep into cart barn to find the last 2 functioning pull/ push carts for us. Staff appears to be working with one hand tied behind their back, and still show great effort in customer service.
Although the region has had a wet winter, great for growing grass, Riverwalk has failed in growing it in the fairways. Many fairways were recently aerated, but all that was present was dirt. The course was very dry too. I do have to say, the greens were in fact green and very slow as they most likely weren't cut in the past few days, but rolled true and in good shape.
The layout of the course was beyond great and offered a lot of variety, and makes the golfer think about every shot. I would love to see this course grown in and well maintained. Could be the best public course in the area in my opinion. But for now, its just o.k.
The twilight rate was justified.

A Course on its last legs.

Fairways and sand traps are is dismal shape. Course worker told me that it’s on its last legs- to be replaced by condos and a park. I’m sure it was pretty good several years ago. Some sand traps had nothing but mud in them. Other traps had too much sand. Parts of the fairways were either worn through to black soil or badly gouged and water-filled. The people working here were very friendly, kind, and helpful.

Terrible pace

We were there for 5.5 hours because people in front were taking forever. Didn’t see a marshal the entire day so I imagine they don’t have one. Conditions of fairways were also poor. I played this course 5 years ago and it wasn’t like that.
