riverbend front 9

The front 9 is open this year and the back 9 is closed.The layout of the front 9 is far better.There is a lot less water on the front 9-the sand traps are not maintained.The greens are not in good shape.for the price-its just ok.The greenskeeper staff are friendly and amiable..maybe its just me at my level but we enjoyed our round .

never again!!!

The carts tires where bald. the grass looked like my back yard with weeds everywhere including on the green. the ball would bounce and not roll. mud everywhere. dead fish on the bunkers and on the green. like its been there longer than over night. 15 minutes to get a drink at the bar & 20 minutes later to order chili and fries. chili was cold and full of beans. there where only 4 people at the clubhouse total, & that included me and my buddy.

Not a golf course

Not from Florida so had no idea what I was getting. All I have to say is this is not a golf course. I mean there is somewhat some grass and 18 holes drilled, but imagine your backyard just cut fairly short, never watered or weeded and that's your greens for 18 holes. I was laughing, save your money, trust me.

Good starter course

This course would not be great for scratch golfers but, as a warm-up course for the beginning of the year, for your basic duffers, it serves its purpose. At present, only the front nine is opened, which I played twice. The tee-offs are adequate but the greens are rough (or non-existant in three cases) as they are just being worked on. In most cases, I would chip to the hole and if I was less than a club length, I'd count a one putt. The owner anticipates having the back nine ready in a few weeks so I'll definitely go back. You get what you paid for and, considering the addition of the cart, it was definitely a bargain; better than a driving range for the price.

Poor conditions

This course has very poor conditions and it is reflected in their pricing. Hard to tell a different between fairways/rough/greens. Pricing is reflected accordingly. Rental clubs from 1980's. Overall I would not recommend this course unless it was completely redone.

fun course

Greens were rough but we had a great time. Friendly staff . Interesting layout for an executive course. Holes were short but challenging. We went out for a warmup round because we were playing for the first time in three months, and it was ideal for that. Definitely go back again. Good value for the money.

Course needs some help

They lost course a couple years ago and have been trying to rebuild. Greens are in need of rolling as ball does the jitterbug as it travel across them. We go there because it's cheap and we can finish in 2 to 2 1/2 hrs.

What You Should Expect For The Price

We played the course once last year and decided to try it again this year. Last year, we had to play the front twice, this year we had to play the back twice. We knew going in that the conditions likely hadn't improved much - but we would have to say that the back 9 this year was better than the front 9 last year. Yes, the fairways and greens are in need of a lot of work, but for $12 we enjoyed the course and the pace of play - 2 hours to play 18 holes. We are experienced golfers but would go back for the challenges the conditions created at a price of $12.

The course should be removed from Golf Now

This little course might have been playable at one time but that is no longer the case--it should not be classified as a golf course and I strongly encourage Golf Now to remove it as one of their options. No maintenance is being done but it might make a fun horse trail. I would rate as less than 1* but that was not an option on the review
