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.

An excellent golf course

This is a challenging (but not too much water!) and well laid-out 18 hole course. The fairways and fast greens are well kept.
The pace of play was excellent. In fact, when there was a hold-up at one of the back holes the Marshall quickly sorted the problem out.
It really was a pleasure to play Reviera. I will definitely play there gain and recommend this course to everyone.

Great Course just too crowded today

Love this course but will probably wait till the snowbirds leave. At one point there were 4 groups waiting on the same hole. Great course just too crowded today
