Golf courses in Florida are hard to judge in the summer months due to the abundance of rain.. With that said , I feel that I received a good quality golf course for the cost of the round.
Excellent Value, Nice Greens
Played using a ‘Hot Deal’, teeing off just before noon. Heavy rains night before, & morning of, our round left fairways waterlogged & sand traps unplayable. However, greens held up well & rolled true. Started raining, off & on, on front but we were able to get through 14 holes before lightning & storms forced us to quit. However, we would go back & find that the layout, & speed of greens, make this a very good value during Florida’s late summer slow season.
great course, not being maintained
This course has a really nice layout and has traditionally been a nice course at a fair price, so good value.
However, the fairways are going going to pot -- much crabgrass (or some other weed) and many tee boxes are a mess
This course is pretty, challenging, and has fast greens.
If the course could increase the maintenance budget it would be one to go back to again and again.
Of course it would cost more also, but it would be worth the extra that you would pay.
Right now the course also suffers from lots of summer rain, which can't be helped.
Course was extremely wet, lost 4 balls in fairways because of water and muddy areas from rain. They should not have even opened the course this time.
Usually this is a good place to enjoy a nice round.
Course was pretty good. However, I was surprised to see that someone took a dookie on the 9th green. It smelled really bad. Will return though.
Different kind of outlet maul
Only a few miles from the Ellenton Outlet Malls, River Wilderness is the place to go after dropping your husband or wife off for some shopping. The course is in beautiful surroundings and a pleasure to play. There is enough challenge that poorly-executed shots will see you "mauled." Definitely a place to return.
Always a fun/ challenging day on the golf course @ RW. Staff is friendly and helpful.
pace was great.. drained well after earlier storms.
Greens not in best shape... fair amount of weeds in spots.
Love the layout
My golf partner and I really enjoyed playing River Wilderness. Played it for the first time last Friday and came back today. A few tee boxes were bare and some greens had crabgrass. Nevertheless, we loved the layout and hospitality of the staff
I played RW several times during last 2 years. This was first time in several months. Course conditions deteriorated considerably which may explain the $14;green fee. In the past it has been $30+ green fee.
The club is struggling financially and it showed the course is now weed infested in need of aerification. No available ice heat index was 105...
I doubt I will return to play even with a $14 green fee...
I have played this course several times during the last 2 years until today course conditions were always above average. Today was the first time I played at RW in several months. I noticed a significant deterioration in course conditions bunkers were weed infested increased weeds growing in fairways. Fairway appeared to be in need of water or lacked aerification the greens were rough and poorly maintained. The green Fee was reduced to $14.00 in the past the green fee was $30.00- $40.00. The positive low activity on the course so pace of play was not delayed..
Sad this was an exceptional course now a bargain course with the reputation you get what you pay for.
The course has a great laid out
How ever for all the years that I’ve been in the area the course has been in trouble. Problem I see is that there are many nicer golf cousin the area for which are semi private making it available for anyone to play... RiverWildernes have been going back n forth with totally private, open to the public, totally private n so on therefore people don’t bother going there...no money from the public means no money for course maintenance....
