Staff made you feel like an inconvenience. I don't know if they were having a bad day, or they saw we paid through Golf now web site, but they acted as if we were incroaching on there terf. This is the first that I have ever felt this way at this course but it is also the first time I used the golf now app at this course.

When looking for some challenge and a beautiful backdrop to some

scenic golf, take the time to look at this course. On a recommendation

from a friend, go to the front of the line in choosing this course to play.

Front nine greens a little difficult and the par 3's are quite challenging.

Fairways are very fair for driving and the surrounding housing development

doesn't come into the difficulty. Put Riverfront , front of the line....see you on

this course.

This is a residential course. It is rather long and quite intertwined in the neighborhood. I do not recommend walking. The fairways at this time of the year are still low and can be muddy and hold moisture after rain. There is trouble if not driving well. Several fairways have marsh valleys. Several holes are well elevated and blind. Those who do not drive long can expect layups on a number of par 4s. Similarly some par 3s must carry hazards! Greens are well maintained, aerated recently but filling in well. Undulated.

I play this course at least three times a month, it is awesome. One of the best courses in Hampton Roads. The greens if you catch them when it hasn't rained in awhile are super fast and you really need to think about ball placement. It is pricy at times, but definitely worth it.

Pace of play was abysmal on the back nine. Our group saw the very attentive refreshment cart operator no fewer than six times, but there were no marshals to be found. I understand Sunday golf can be slow, but pick up the pace people. Most of us don't want to watch you line up a put for a minute and a half on each of your four putts, and then have to watch the rest of your group do the same. But I digress, fact is with no marshals helping keep the pace of play the course just racks up the cash from beverage and snack sales to a bunch of bored and tired folks.

After hearing about how great this course was we decided to try it out. Unfortunately, playing between houses is not one of my favorite things to do. Greens were extremely challenging - the only thing missing was the windmill and the clowns mouth. Course was beautiful - but pace of play was slow.

Got a vgreat deal at a 12:30 tee time. The weather had been bad for 4 or 5 days and the course was soft but still in great condition. The only down side was cart path's only and my misses balls were always on the opposite side of the fairway. Had a great time!

Riverfront is very challenging.<br/> The Fairways, greens and bunkers are in pristine condition. Greens have a lot of undulation and as always, very slow! Pace of play is also somewhat slow.<br/> Other than those 2 caveats it is the nicest course in Tidewater.

An excellent challenging course especially playing from the tips, which changes everything. Excellent views of the James River. Would definitely play this course again when I am in town. $7 for a small bucket of range balls is a tad stiff though.

Great course. Staff was very helpful and friendly. It was a light sprinkle on us most of the front nine but course was still in great condition and held up well. After lunch which clubhouse had full bar and numerous options for food the rain had stopped and course dried quickly. All in all a great time by my party. Will definitely be back.

Played Friday with a great price from Golf Now, staff very nice and course even nicer. Wide open fairways, only negative is the amount of cart path only holes that were mostly par 5, slowed down play and to be honest couldn't really figure out why cart path since it hadn't rained and they weren't under construction

I would not play this course if I did not have GolfNow. I really enjoyed the challenge. Several of the holes really looked longer than they actually played. You must trust your swing and your yardage. It was very hot when we played but I would love to go back and play again.
