River Oaks is a pretty predictable course. What I mean is the offering doesn't change much. I golf there about one of every ten times out. I'll keep going back about that frequently. Staff is always great.

Course was very wet & muddy, cart path only but saw folks drive their carts in some fairways regardless. Only cost $20 too play but that was about the value so glad I didn’t pay more for the day.

The Greens did not roll true they had bare spot, ruts and weeds things you normally do not see on a well manicured course. The Fairways were soggy and did not drain well. There was damaged areas from tires and negligent golfers. This was One of the Top Rated Courses but not any more. I would do a walk around before I considered playing again because the course layout is worth playing.

We enjoyed the course, Fox was great, Otter seemed much more challenging. The pace seemed ok on the front (Fox) & seemed to slow down on the back (Otter). We will play here again. Very friendly staff.

River Oaks is a friendly course with 27 holes. The clientele is mainly senior men and women who are probably not the best golfers. The pace of play was very good. Course conditions were fine the greens were nice and perfect speed.

Course conditions are pretty good in general.

However green condition to be improved, grasses to be maintained well and need some cuts or rolling down.

First round of the year and it was great. Glad we chose this golf course. It's well maintained. It has enough challenge to keep you interested but not so much that it's beats you up. The weather was perfect however the pace of play was a bit slow. No reason you shouldn't be able to do 18 in 4 hours. The greens were okay, but it's early, so I'm sure they'll get better as the weather does. It was great value for the money. Will definitely go back again.
