Recommend this course to anyone who loves a challenge.
Tough Wind, Good Time
Hooked up with some very nice people and had a great time. Course in great shape, fun had by all
It's a fun layout. Fairways were great, greens weren't in the best shape but Irma had a lot to do with that. Would like to play again.
But not allowed to bring your own beer and no cart driving around selling drinks.
You got to hide your beer in your bag prior to arriving, rookie mistake.
River Strand used to be my favorite course in the Bradenton area. I understand end of summer is aeration time in Florida. River Strand always advertised that with 3 nine golf courses, playing in aerated greens wouldn't happen. I guess since it only allows the general public in during the summer its not as important to make sure there are always 18 holes in good shape.
Great layout. Course in really good shape given the recent weather. Greens are always good since they shut down 9 holes at a time during the summer for to punch greens... you never have to worry about playing on bumpy greens, which is probably the best thing about this course.
Downside is pace of play is always extremely slow here. If you go here with less than 4 people they always want to pair you up with others, which at this course can be unbearable. With the forced membership with home purchase in the neighborhood you get a lot of members that took up golf late in life, and unfortunately just aren't familiar with basic means of playing quickly. They are never ready to play their shot when it is their turn, etc. The best thing they can do is hold clinics for their members on how to be ready to hit your shot when it is your turn. This problem is no fault of the course staff, but it would be nice if they helped their members understand how to play faster.
If you're lucky enough to get out to this course on a day when not many members are playing you won't be disappointed at all. It's one of the best courses in the area.
had an enjoyable round at River Strand. Only problem was one of the cart/bag boys who threw a fit because I took the cart into the parking lot. Real smart mouth.
