Course conditions were not good, fairways not mowed well with many weeds, greens recently aerated and not in the best of shape. Very hot day on the course, no beverage cart, minimal water stations. Have played here in the past and have enjoyed the course. With new owners, hopefully this course will turn around.
Older and not maintained course
Friendly staff would be where this course met expectations. Everything else about the course was not good. Overall layout was narrow and overgrown. Although the greens were mowed they were still extremely slow. Tees and Fairways looked as if they had not been cut in 4-5 days. Bunkers not maintained.
Even for the very inexpensive rate charged was both a waste of time and money.
Would not recommend this course at all!
Every hole is great and makes you think. We play it all the time because it is always a great challenge, and the greens are perfect for this time of year.
Overall it was a good value. Bunkers do need some attention but other than that the course was in good condition.
Golf Now gave me good value but course is lacking
The greens were in poor condition as were the sand traps!
Great place for the money. Greens need a lot of work. Played five holes and then the rain began for two hours. Waited in the shelter and finished the round as the only people on the course. Would challenge the very best golfer.
River Gold Club, Bradenton, FL
Wonderful course! Personnel were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful course. Excellent value. Carts were in great shape. Ranger volunteers constantly checking to be sure you are doing alright. Would recommend this course to anybody. You will not be disappointed.
the course has great potential .
The greens were demanding but not in good shape.
The fairways were good,but could use more water.
The design of all the holes is excellent.
The practice facilities are good.
Enjoyed the day
I always enjoy playing at this course. It has a challenging layout, it has a couple of holes I want to bring my driver out but I leave it in the bag because it sometimes gets me in trouble. For as much rain as we head to the course was in great shape the greens could use a little work though overall had a great day
Vale Golf Course
If you’re looking for an inexpensive quick round in the off season there’s nothing wrong with choosing this course.
Positives are it is a fun layout and the driving range is really nice. I think they do about as well as they can on whatever minimal maintenance budget they have. Pace of play was just fine.
I played on an $11 Hot Deal, and that deal is the only version of me going back to River Club. Greens have some sort of disease and need to be ripped out and redone. For being disease ridden they keep them in decent enough shape, but it’s obvious these greens have outlived their useful life. Several tee boxes are not flat, which of course means those need to be redone.
If you’re looking for a nice course to play this is not your choice. But for a low cost quick round it is just fine.
Hot deal and a nice course
Got a $10 hot deal and played in the afternoon. Corse was in good shape and the greens rolled nice and decent speed.
Very challenging course
Never dissapointed at the river club. Excellent course in a great location. Great staff. Has a driving range , bar ,restaurant ,gps in carts , cart girls, putting and chipping area. Adequate parking
Fun Round, Good Value
It's hard to beat the value of this course. Because it's an older course you can expect some flaws, like inconsistent greens and dry tee boxes on certain holes. It appears they are improving the cart paths and the paths to the tee boxes on particular holes. They offer a very nice driving range and practice green. The beverage cart visiting twice was a real plus, too. I always seem to meet some nice folks to play with, so this makes for a fun round of golf.
Course was in good shape and staff was friendly. Add in some beautiful weather and it was a good day of golf.
