Wet, but in good condition

The golf course was quite wet, I was still able to enjoy the game. The River Course is very well maintained, its greens in perfect condition with an average speed and without many breaks. I'd say it's easy for putting.

Beautiful scenery

The course itself is beatific and for the most part well maintained. The greens are a little inconsistent and slow, but overall a fun course.

Love the River

I am a resident/member of Rio Mar, so play both courses often. But the River is by far my favorite. It pushes up to the base of El Yunque rainforest, and the Mameyes River winds throughout the course. Except for the first few holes, there are no homes on the course, which makes it very secluded and private. Pace of play very good, as all the tourists want to play the Ocean Course, not knowing this is the real gem of the two. Very challenging, yet 3 of the Par 5's are reachable. Some very tough and long Par 4's. The new golf staff has done wonders with both courses, especially post-Maria (insurance helped with many renovations). They are now part of Troon Golf, which I know has high standards, and both courses are living up to it.

Nice layout; fair conditions

I enjoyed the layout, but I would rate the conditions as fair to average The course is maintained ok (maybe as good as it gets considering the environment) - but the greens, while true, were VERY slow. IMO not a great value compared to say a Poppy Ridge in Monterey. On the other hand, if you’re staying at the resort and don’t have many other convenient options it made for a pleasant round of golf.

Great-!!!

Excellent conditions of the course. Staff followed new COVID-19 protocols.

Pace of play is 100% better because everyone goes to their ball. Raised cups in green are the new trend but it is difficult to accept.

Very good experience.

we played the River Course on a Thursday afternoon and we darn near had the place all to ourselves. it took a couple of holes to get used to how to play your shots on this particular species of grass; unlike anything we've played on before. the course was a little bit dry certainly not unreasonable. the course layout was beautiful and the scenery was great throughout the course of our round. the bunkers needed more sand. the saying that was there was much too hard and not fluffy whatsoever. the course was pretty challenging however it was also fairly short so if you hit some good shots, especially off the tee, your approach shots onto the green were very makable. overall, I would give it a good rating and I will definitely come back again.
