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.

From arrival too departure the golf experience was top notch. bag drop and starter man was right on top of things from where to tee off to driving range facilities to pairing or not pairing up with another couple. It was our first game after shutting down for the winter back home and we were able to go out by ourselves and practically had the course alone. course was in good shape, greens ran true and would go back and try the otter 9 hole next time. hit on a hot deal for $15.00 each, just average golfers who like that kind of deal. Sunshine and a few beers on the course. Cant beat that!

This is a very nice course. Despite that it rained all night the course was in good condition. Greens are excellent. Has 3 nine hole courses. I played the Fox and the Otter All was good and I will continue to play this course

Bag drop guy was efficient. Starter was not interested in being there. 7-10 minute wait on each hole. Greens were medium speed and were the best comment to be made about the course conditions. Leaves everywhere. No restroom facilities on course. No hole layout map or yardages on tees or directional signs between holes.

Went as a single Thusday morning. Not many golfers out so I cruised through in a little over 3 hours. 2 foursomes let me play through. Course is in good shape and weather was great.

My wife and I played the Fox/Otter and we liked the Fox but not the Otter as the fairway grass was very thin and condition were wet. The greens were nice and face on both.

"Too wet"

The course was interesting & challenging but was too wet to really enjoy. It was constant lift & clean or drop away from standing water. I played this course twenty-some years ago in July and it was wet then. Bad timing? Not sure.
