Course is in good shape. Tale of two nines like the other reviews. My only beef is we had to follow a fivesome (from the first tee). No problem providing they can keep pace. However, they had fallen a hole behind by the third tee and not a Marshall in sight to keep them on pace.

The two nines at Riverview are divided by Victoria Rd (hwy. 24) which couldn't be more appropriate since they are so dissimilar.

The front nine is a beast with 3 par 5s, 2 400yd. 4s (from whites) and a 200 yd . par 3. It is relatively wide open and flat. The back, however, is much shorter but since it is well treed and has numerous sloping fairways it is as challenging as the front. In fact, the two "gems", the par 3 uphill #11 and the split fairway par 4 # 12 are on the back.

The greens and the fairways are in immaculate condition for this time of year. Unfortunately, many of the bunkers were filled with water because of the overnight rain and those that were dry were very hard.

This would be my only complaint.

The course has numerous water hazards especially on the front and #s 17 and 18 run along the Welland Canal which makes the two holes especially scenic.

Riverview is definitely one of the best courses I have played this season. My partner who was new to the course can't wait to get back.

Since there are four sets of tees, Riverview can accommodate golfers of all handicap levels.

Course played easier on front nine. Back nine much more challenging and enjoyable. Conditions were excellent and staff polite. Pace of play was appropriate for the number of groups on the course. Overall, good value for money and the course, particularly the greens, were in good shape.

I have played here a number of times in the past but have not been near course in over a year. The price to play here provides great value. The family that run the course have done an extraordinary job taking care of it and their enthusiasm and demeanor to customers make you look forward in returning to play again.

Even in the dog days of summer the course is still in good shape. Greens, tee blocks and even the fairways are well taken care of. The rough is quite dry and hard, but that's understandable. Very good value.
