River Oaks Golf Course, located in the South Valley of the Jordan River Bottom Area, is a challenging course where golfers can often have some wildlife encounters. The course offers beautiful scenery featuring plenty of trees and water, adding both beauty and challenge. The links-style golf course has a good variety of shots with some fairways that feature thick cuts of rough. The water that is present on the course is creates very tricky water hazards that come into play on some holes. The 14th hole is notable difficult. The River Oaks Golf Course facility also has an enormous driving range with natural grass.

I like this course. The holes are tight requiring a pretty straight ball flight otherwise you're off into the thick grass, rough, swampy areas or the Jordan river. There are a variety of different layouts; not your commonly seen fairways laid next to each other. This is a Sandy city course, the clubhouse is nicely appointed, the grill is good. I think it's a good value for the greens fees.

was given a book to show yardages on each hole. This helped a lot with blind shots.

this is right next to my work so very convenient. many tight holes with danger around every corner. very fun to play if you aren't too worried about losing a couple balls.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this a challenging course in good condition with quick, but we'll conditioned greens. The hazards are plentiful and unforgiving and it's very easy to run a decent drive into very tall growth with little chance of finding your ball and less chance of playing it. I would have guessed a slope of 128 and was surprised it was only 121. The fees were remarkably low for a Saturday morning round including a cart. ($42 through GolfNow).
