Needs a little work

Coarse was decent. It’s been much better. Tee boxes need a little work. Fairways were in fairly good shape given all the rain we’re having. Greens I was a little disappointed in, being that they’re usually very good.

Members

Well, started off rocky with our foursome. 2 single digit golfers with 2 scratch. Middle of the fairway on 1st hole members behind us yelled to hurry up. They ran us on the first 5 holes. Very unpleasant. We finally noticed that they were playing GOLD which is some 1200 yrd short from our tee box. We played in 3:45 hrs. Hope i don't get that ignorant when i get elderly.
Enough said!!!!

Riverwood is tops

Always a beautiful layout and friendly staff in pro shop and for lunch after. Greens had been punched and sanded so discounted rate but still a great course in excellent shape.

PLAY THIS COURSE...

Aeration date of 7/11/19 is offered to reader to use to plan booking...course was subjected to 6+ thunderstorms the day before with sheeting rains of 1/4" or more per storm from TS Barry...yet, the course drained well and the greens, although aerated, were usable...layout is fine with plenty of wide fairways and the greens when cleared, will be a joy to putt on...alas, this IS Florida during its rainy season so, adjust expectations...course sits inside a gated, with live security, so you will have homes along most of the fairways...if I were to be in the area a bit longer, I would 100% play this course again, after the FLORIDA sun had a chance to over take the FLORIDA rains...have the ICE MACHINE AND ICE WATER STATIONS at 5th and 14th holes along with being at the clubhouse...so you can fill up your empty bottles of Gatorade...you will ENJOY THE COURSE

Great challenging course.

The views and course conditions were great. The greens ran true at a medium pace. But, You better be hitting your lines if you want to stay out of trouble. Tight fairways and small greens. One of my favorite courses to play.

Best Course in the area

Have played here several times before. IMHO, Riverwood is the best course in the area. Second to none. Traditional old-FloridA style but with modern touches (like huge greens.) Plenty of tee boxes to pick from to suit your own game Had the course all to ourselves for s 1:00 tee time on a warm, but not overly hot, day. Played the round in 2 hrs 30 mins. My only suggestion would be get electric carts and put GPS on them. Otherwise, great condition - tee boxes, fairways, cart paths, greens and even sand traps all impeccable. A great day on a very nice course! And an unbelievable HotDeal price of $16 put the icing on the cake!

Awesome course, challenging layout!!!

This is a course where you nerd course management. Focus on attracting greens and fairways from the side with least pain. Great value with the Big Summer Card!!!

Beautiful

The course is simply the most beautiful and well groomed. The staff is very attentive and polite. Unfortunately, we got stuck behind some very slow individuals on our day of play. Overall one of the best places to play.

Outstanding Course

Everything a Golf Course should be. Well maintained tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Challenging but not difficult. Wide fairways. Huge sand traps. Not a weed or bare spot on the course. Our favorite course.
