What a fun course. I will play this course again. Front 9 makes you feel you are on your way to a great day, until the back 9! More challenging, fun, thinking more. The staff very friendly and the pro shop has something for everyone.

Compared to all the semi-private courses in the area, Riviera has the best greens, i.e. low cut, fast and consistent from hole to hole. The fairways are in very good shape. The rough hasn't fully grown in yet (so I'm told from my playing partners).

I have to mention that Mike in the pro shop is the best.

Course was crowded but the pace was great with no waits no longer than 3 minutes.

Clubhouse has very good food & service. The ambiance of the clubhouse and facilities are limited by its structurally dated design.

Although golfnow.com can book a reservation, it really is a no advanced reservation course and has been for years. I'm not sure if changing to accepting all advanced reservations would be good, the current process has worked with little in delays.

Simply put, Riviera is a revelation. A 1950s throwback of modest length (6,200 yards) that is extremely walkable and wonderfully-kept, with green fees topping out below $50 (even in prime snowbird season), it stands out as a model for what public golf can be at its best.

Strong players who are tempted to take Riviera's small footprint to be a sign that it is not a worthy place to think again; "Riv" is one of America's longest-running professional golf hosts, with the local professional Riviera Open having been contested every year since 1960 except one. The course defends itself slyly, with pushed-up greens where short-siding yourself can lead to quicker-than-expected bogeys, especially when the surfaces are firm and fast.

A final word in praise of Riv. Mike Boss, head pro for 40 years at the course, does not keep a formal tee sheet. Instead, golfers wanting to visit may call up, request a general time to play, and will be directed toward a softer time on the schedule if their requested time is going to be busy. This more organic way of managing golf course traffic adds to Riviera's relaxed feel.

If you're ever in the area, play this golf course.

Golf course in excellent shape. Greens were smooth and fast.. I think fairways were over watered. Did not like hitting off wet fairways. Second best course I have played in Daytona area.. Will definitely go back.
