Good course. Staff could take some personality lessons.

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.

Riverfront of the Line

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.

Lengthy 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.

Awesome

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.

No marshals?

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.

Not my favorite - sorry to say.

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.

Poor customer service

I was very disappointed in the way I was treated by the staff .Being a previous resident from Suffolk and my friend is a member here staff was very rude. I would never play this course again.

One of the best courses around

This course was in great shape the greens were perfect. I enjoyed the challenge of putting the greens they are fast and have lots of break. Riverfront has to be one of the BEST courses in the area!
