Great Course and Great Value

The course is well maintained. It is an enjoyable course. Not to difficult, but not too easy. The greens are a little smaller than average which makes it a little more difficult, but the course is not very long. The par 5's are reachable in 2 if you have a decent drive. It is a very nice course and reasonably priced. I also like that they will let you play on your own rather than making you join other people to make a foursome for all tee times.

Decent course; poor customer service.

Course was in decent shape, but our experience was tainted by our interactions (or lack thereof) with the front desk. The person running the cash register was extremely flat and unhelpful, which made us feel quite unwelcome. Then on the turn, we stopped in the clubhouse again and he did not say a single word to us as we passed him twice. There was also no beverage cart which was surprising on a 95 degree day, but the girl running the bar was fantastic and very personable.

With the course being mediocre and the customer service poor, I would not recommend making the trek from Omaha to play this course.

Solid

Challenging layout. Either play with a local or someone familiar with the course. Greens were true/challenging and the course was solid. Not long. but placement is paramount. Cart person and staff were awesome/abundant.

If your heading there from Omaha proper, it's a hual but DEFINETLY worth it!

My best round ever

Course is not difficult for someone that can hit where they want to and knows their club distances. That saying, I’m a bogie + handicap and I shot my lowest round ever. 76 with five birdies and a triple on the card. I’m just here to say that part.

Dilapidated

Clubhouse and surrounding ground were run down, staff was just there killing time. Course layout was challenging and greens were in good shape but fairways and rough needed mowing. Bathrooms were nasty. Would not make the drive to play this course again.

Great value with speedy pace of play

I’ve played at River Wilds quite a few times over the last 5 years and I’ve never been disappointed. The course is challenging and kept in good shape and best of all I’ve never seen it overcrowded. In fact the last two times out we finished in just under four hours. If your someone looking for the “small town” course experience this certainly knocks it out the park. My only complaint is I wish it was a little closer to Omaha.

Nats & bugs

Hard to even play the course with all the bugs flying in your mouth & around your face as you try to hit. Tough course due thick rough, wish there wasn't so many bugs

Great course!

Course is very well kept. Just 30 minutes from Omaha. Fun layout. The Par 5's are reachable in 2 shots with a good drive. Fun course!

Nice all around experience! Paired up with older gentleman and his grandson! They talked me through each hole!! Course is fairly short! I shot 70 as each of par 5’s were easily reachable!

But who doesn’t like shooting 70 not matter what course length is!

Greens were pretty fast but very receptive to approach! Stay out of tough bc decreased control!!!

Sunday funday

Great time at RiverWilds.....course has some neat layouts to start holes 1-2,lengthens out on holes 3,5,6 with well guarded bunkers throughout the front side. 8-9 Of͏f͏er a lake along the side boundary of these holes...just to mess with your head a bit ! My group had a blast and we were truly up for fun and the challenge!!!

Not too shabby

The layout isn’t bad at all except for a few holes. The greens are a little smaller than normal. This makes it a somewhat tough but also a good challenge.

If there was rain within the past few days then be prepared to bring the bug spray.

Overall, awesome course! One of my favorites for sure.
