My wife and I (70 years) are avid golfers and have played many courses in Ontario, Tennessee, Florida and Myrtle Beach. River Edge is one of our favourites and is a real gem along the Grand River in the City of Kitchener, just off King Street and close to Highway 401.

It is a fantastic 9 hole layout that has many interesting holes. Holes are well separated and it is a perfect natural setting along the river. Course conditions in early May were superb, the tees, rough, fairways and greens were excellent. The only minor issue was downed branches and twigs as a result of a major windstorm last week. There were 5 different staff working on bunkers, mowing, etc. during our visit. Pleasant reception at Pro Shop and again with the Starter.

We had a cart on the GolfNow Hot Deal but the Course is easily walked. On a beautiful May mid-day the course was very quiet, nobody behind us and we only saw a group ahead on #9. We played easily well under 2 hours.

We highly recommend patronizing River Edge, especially for those that don’t want to take 6 hours driving and playing a full 18 holes.

Was a little soggy in places and the greens were slower than normal, but that was to be expected with the spring we have had. Other than that, another enjoyable round at this course.

Super golf course. Lots of trouble to get into. Lots of sand, marshes, blind shots. Greens were fast and true. Rained the night before, cart path only, yet drainage was good. Do yourself a favor and splurge for a yardage book. As several blind shots can make a very tough time, when not necessary.

Absolutely beautiful course, was a Saturday afternoon so it was full and a tournament happened to be going on, this probably contributed to the slow play. Only disappointment is it's only 9 holes. You can always go around twice which I do when I can.

A bald eagle nest on the second hole is an extra treat to see.

This 9 hole course is nestled in a small valley adjacent to the Grand River in Kitchener, ON. Although I took a cart on my most recent visit, the layout is very walk-able and in fact most of the regulars were walking that day. The course is fairly short, scenic, and has enough trouble lurking to keep your attention (which is tough when watching the two resident bald eagles swoop down the second fairway). The course was in top shape that day with meticulously manicured tees and greens. The fairways were excellent and the bunkers were much better than average. The pace of play was 1.5 hours for our first 9 with no-one in front of us. The second 9 was quite a bit slower as we caught up to a slow moving league and waited on every shot. So pick your tee time carefully and consider walking instead of taking a cart. I was told weekdays between 11-2 are generally a great time to play.
