This was a very fine course in Ormond Beach for years. The greens are in very bad shape for the last few weeks. This course is not worth $30+ until they correct the issues on the greens,

I love this course and so do my golf mates. Have played here several times and for the value it’s worth the drive from West Volusia. The only downside is the greens. Too many dead spots. And that’s mostly the wet weather problems Florida suffers through in the summer. Will give the greens a while to bounce back and rebook in August. The fairways were in great shape.

Good layout and very polite staff.

Greens need a little help, I think the heat/ rain has them a little rough.

Overall a great day. Played with a few locals and a visitor from Las Vegas.

The overall experience was good, but the condition on the Greens go a very long way in course ratings. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the course layout was great, and pace of play was fine.

The Greens however.......eeeesh, some were ok, but there were about 7-8 that were unplayable, and makes the makes the course look really bad.

The price makes sense once you see those Greens, that’s all I’ll say.

right now, the greens are horrible. I realize that aeration just took place but there are big holes and spots of disease all over the greens. Putting is quite difficult to say the least. However, it is hard to beat the price of $25 but I'll wait three or four weeks to go back.

It has been over 20 years since I have made it over to this great trek and I have no idea why. I forgot how absolutely beautiful River Bend is. The course winds throughout the woods near the Tomoka River. For the most part no houses on the course and you rarely see another hole from the hole you are currently playing.

I would have given the conditions a 5 if it weren't for the fact they had just aerated the greens which still weren't too awful.

I will definitely be back again soon.

Heard this course was good, but pleasantly surprised at how good it turned out to be. Nice fairways and greens. Some cart paths are a bit rough making for a bumpy ride. Beautiful setting and lots of tropical vegetation. Greens ran true. Lovely’s experience.
