Terrible

In my opinion this is the worst golf course in the Inland Empire. Horrible carts, horrible greens & overpriced for how unmanaged this course is. Can’t believe they charge 17$ on the weekends for this place. Should be 5$ a round.

First and last

What a waste of money! The course should be shut down! Carts with holes in the seats and wheels ready to fall off. If you must go to hit balls just use the driving range and putting greens. Everything else is total garbage!

Cheap golf

cart was in poor shape, had to push it up the hill from the tunnel. Low electrical charge. Course is ok. A lot of bare spaces/dirt, poor markings for holes, too many single players jumping through---rude.

Can't be beat

I love Van Buren. The driving range has plenty of spaces. The practice putting green chipping area is plenty big. The 9 hole course is fun and challenging, just what I need to get my golf fix! I love Brooks bar, omg the cheeseburgers and hot dogs! I think shelly took care of us at the bar she is so awesome!! They always have something new to try on tap. I wish I lived closecloser I'd be here everyday. Another plus is it's right next to the riverside airport so it's always fun to see the planes fly by! Can't say a bad thing about this place! Everyone is really friendly pretty casual and just a lot of fun.

Poor executive course

First time playing here. The fairways and tee boxes are trashed. Many tee boxes don’t even have the white markers to play off of. Tons of mud and ruts in the fairways. The layout is horrible. It gets very confusing when you can’t figure out where hole 4 ends and hole 5 begins. They need more signage pointing players in the right direction. This entire course can be played with a 7 iron and a putter. I like executive courses for their really short play, but the conditions here were rock bottom. I know the owners also own Indian Hills and Jurupa Hills as well as Hidden Valley. This little course obviously is the “red headed step child” of the four. Sad. I won’t be back here. For $17.00, it’s totally not worth it. The only good thing was the driving range.

Needs Work

For a $6 Hot Deal one can hardly complain too much. This is a 9-hole executive golf course with a great driving range (both turf and artificial hitting areas), along with a putting green. Surprisedly there is also a nice little bar on the premises with big screen tvs, food, and a variety of beers. The course unfortunately needs work. The tee boxes are ill-kept with some of the blue tees looking liked they've been placed in the rough. The fairways could use a dose of weed killer and the rough is unevenly cut and deep in many places. Over watering has also left many areas in both the rough and fairways muddy and swampy and rutted with tire marks. The greens are good, but the bunkers seemed to be ignored by the grounds crews. This could really be a gem of a little practice course with some better maintenance. Would most likely not play more than once a year in current conditions.

You get what you pay for

Star was friendly and accommodating but other than that, the course had a bad layout, the pace of play was extremely slow. Seems like everyone started at the same time.

Good little course

A buddy and I just got done playing another course and we didn't want to go get stuck in traffic so looked up this place and saw they had a special for $6/player we jumped on it and it was a good choice. Played in 1.5 hours conditions were nothing to brag about but greens and approach areas were in great shape! Pro shop and bar staff were friendly and range and practice areas looked decent as well.

Great course to learn on.

Had a good time golfing this smaller golf course. This is good to work on your short game. You will only use your driver once or twice. However what I really enjoyed was that planes fly over every 5 minutes. It's just cool to see and the view in hole 7&8 right next to the airport where my favorites. I'm definitely going back.
