First Time @ Course

I have mixed feelings about my experience at this course. As I checked in the man sent me walking (with my clubs) to find my partner who checked in just seconds before. After introducing myself and placing my bag in his cart I later found out he was not my partner. After I found out we were not paired I had to walk back (with my clubs) to grab a cart. This ended up being a 10 minute delay which did not leave me enough time to warm up. Another issue I had to deal with was the course did not have drinkable water - due to water pipe contamination. With this setback the facility did not provide any water to accommodate for this issue (luckily I brought my own water). The practice facility was large and looked very nice, but I could not hit any balls due to only having 5 minutes to chip and put. When I finally got to the course and meet the members I was paired up with is when my day began to turn around. The course was in amazing shape, with fairways and rough well taken care of. The, greens were nice and firm running ~11. The members were very helpful providing insight on where to and not to hit shots. Which was very important because there was A LOT of blind shots (playing from the blue’s). If it wasn’t for this helpful insight I would have shot in the upper 80’s. Overall I give this course a 5 star rating. I refuse to let the service and water contamination plague my day on the golf course. I recommend this course to all who has a handicap of 10 or better.

Great value on hot deal

A well maintained course with a good layout and hole challenges. Not appropriate for beginners but geared more to those who golf regularly to really enjoy the course

Really fun to play!

From the moment we drove onto the property, people were super nice and helpful. Beautiful property, nice tee boxes and greens, good sand, nice layout. We played late afternoon and toward the end we needed our bug spray. We will return.

Must play!

I play a lot of golf in Florida and I am very happy that I had a chance to play here. Riverwood is a must play when your in the area. Nice driving range and putting green to get loose. From tee box to green the course is in superb condition. Great blend of hole designs with plenty of water and sand. Greens held quality approach shots and rolled smooth and true. You will be glad that you choose to player here.

Nice place - great people!

Riverwood is a beautiful golf course. Although somewhat soft due to recent rain, it was still in great shape. The staff is friendly and very helpful!

Be ethical, close the course when it isnt suitable

Played just before xmas. Heavy rain the day before turned the course into a swamp. The ethical thing to do would have been to close the course and not take money from people. Unfortunately the decision taken was to keep the course open, take a full green fee and not allow buggies off the cart path. This meant play was tortuosly slow and took place in a swamp...

The course is Outstanding. Riverwood had just reseed the whole course with a winter rye grass and it is coming in nicely. Greens are in excellent shape and the course is beautiful!
