Food & BeverageBar, Grill
It'd been about 5 years since I played this course. I had forgotten how nice of a golf course River Wilds really was. Staff was friendly, value was superb and the course was in great shape! Greens were immaculate and the fairways and rough were well taken care of.
5 hour round, 95 Degrees, No Bev cart, no ranger
If you have a whole day to devote to a round of golf and don't mind never seeing a beverage cart or a filled water cooler, even on a hot weekend afternoon then by all means, head to River Wilds. It is a decent layout and usually in good shape but is not managed well.
Very well maintained and challenging course
Today was my first round at this course. It was in great condition! The greens rolled true, the fairways and tee boxes were cut short, and the rough was plush. The greens are some of the smallest I've played for quite some time, so be prepared to get plenty of chipping practice if your irons aren't accurate. There are 3-4 holes that require a little local knowledge because of blind tee shots or dogleg fairways. I asked the staff about these holes when we checked in and was clued in appropriately. We started the round at 8:30am, and we finished 18 at noon. The price for 18 with a cart was reasonable, and I would definitely play this course again.
How is this course not more popular? It's is challenging, especially from the back tees. It's in pristine condition. I will drive here all day any day.... Better than most Omaha Courses
Great for singles or pairs
Took almost 5 hours to play 18 holes but that was because we played with a couple that made things interesting. Quality of the golf carts was a pleasant surprise considering the quality of the course as was the scorecard that enabled you to track almost everything by hand. Will be definitely going back again.
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.
Course was in great shape. Greens are always good.
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.
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.
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.
