Hidden jewel

Very mice course and staff. Although hot and dry the course is in pretty good shape. I’d play regularly if I lived anywhere near here.

First visit, 9 holes, 3pm T time.

Relaxed but not slow pace.
We really enjoyed the 9 holes we played.
No long drives between Ts.
Conditions were great in the opinion of this beginner. I have played on better but for more money.
Easy check in, start.
Will definitely play at Riviera Country Club again.

Members have no golf etiquette

We were a twosome playing behind 4 members. We waited to hit on every shot and they had 12 puts on some greens. Never offered for us to play thru' as every other course would. Will never go back there.

Great greens

My wife and I have been coming to Daytona Beach for years. We always play golf when we are here but we have never tried Riviera Country Club. I have been playing golf since I was 15 and these are some of the best greens you'll ever play. Fairways are full without any bare spots. Bunkers fairly placed. The course isn't very difficult as long as you stay out of the tree line. Only 6200 yards from the back tee but it's a lot of fun. We play later in the day and we played in less than 3 hours.

Hidden Gem, Loved it!

We have been coming to the Daytona/Ormond Beach area for many years and playing golf. I did not even know this course was here! Just ten minutes from the beach condo we stay, and the golf is fantastic. Love the layout, and even though the greens were recently dressed, they were fast and true. The undulations and turtle-back shape on most, along with the greens being small, make for an excellent challenge with your approach shots and short game. Expect your imagination to be tested thoroughly around the greens. I loved the challenge and will be back for more. Playing from the Tips is not overly long, but the slight doglegs and tree-lines make the tee shots grab your attention. No blind drives or approaches makes a first time experience enjoyable as well. They have 9, yes 9 pin locations, so understanding where the pin is on the green along with a rangefinder is a breeze. Loved this course, well done!!

Late Summer

This course always has moderate to fast greens compared to several I've played. You would not have known that it hasn't rained the past two weeks because
the fairways are excellent and lush. The rough and fringe
are the devil's friend...

Highly recommend Riviera

This is an excellent neighborhood course. The greens were fast and exceptionally true. The fairways were in great shape with a good cushion for shock free iron shots. Pace of play was very good, very few waits to hit.

I'd recommend it if you're I the Daytona area.

Great Value and Fun Course

This is the second time I have played Riviera Country Club. I like the course. It is simple, fun and a great value. The best part of the course are the greens.
The greens are small, fast, and in great condition. The greens run smooth, and true with lots of subtle humps and undulations which makes them a real test and challenge.
Both times I have played the course it has been very wet and soggy with lots of muddy holes in the fairways.
Make sure to take some bug spray because the bugs and gnats are crazy thick out there.
Overall, I highly recommend the course, especially since it is a great value for the price you pay.

Would highly recommend. Staff was more than accommodating and very friendly. Course is in good shape. Love the speed on the greens. Very reasonable for their prices in the lounge. Look forward to playing there again

Very crowded course, nice mix of long and short holes

I would have to warn folks wanting to play here that this course is covered up in members, both men and women, and the pace of play can be excruciatingly slow. Fairways mostly wide open with par 4's varying from 335 to 410 and par fives from 465 to 510. Greens had been recently aerated but there was a notice. Nice little course for all the retirees that play every day, but it's a mystery to me why they are on GolfNow since they already get more play than they can handle.

Nice

First time playing here and we will definitely return and play again. This is a wide open course. Straight up track with more bunkers than water. Nice greens. They just aerated the greens but still ok. Riviera CC is a nice secret. You would never know it was there if it wasn't for these site's. I highly recommend.
