Unbelievable course - from Ohio and I have played 5 area courses in the last week - this was the best. The ball sat up nicely on the fairways and the greens were immaculate. The lady at the counter was very informative - she knew what she was talking about because she is a golfer herself. The starter was great and was continuously driving around the course to watch the speed of play - no problems. It sits right next to the Pittsburgh Pirates spring training facility - that is very interesting. This course is challenging and a must play. Have a great time!

This was my first time playing the course. The course was in good condition, but was had very wet fairways from rain the previous night. Course was in good condition, greens we're slow. Staff was friendly enough, but could be more helpful and friendly. I would give my experience 3.5 out of 5 stars.

The course appeared very busy when we arrived and I thought it would be a very slow day but the starter was very sharp got us out at the perfect time. We had a very smooth round with a great pace of play. The course was in good shape and I think is a good value. I will be back.

Have played River Run four times since January 2018. The course was heavily over-seeded and in good shape and very green. Last played Monday April 2, 2018 and the condition has gone down hill fast. Fairways and greens very browned out and many bare spots showing. The hot weather has started causing the over-seed to die out and where the over-seed was once lush, now it is dying and turning into dirt. I do not play this course in the late spring, summer, or early fall as the course has minimal good permanent grass on the fairways and around the greens. Also many of the greens are looking bad and some will soon be only dirt. Too bad what the summer does to courses that rely on over-seed for a quick fix to poor course conditions. It only works in the cooler temps.
