Play was extremely slow. People need to stop with the practice swings and just play. Waited every hole and every shot. Takes the fun of the game away.

Great challenge to place the ball in fairways, or you get wet or lost. Greens a bit slow but subtle breaks challenging.

First time playing here. Course was in really great shape. A lot of pitch marks on greens, seems like no one fixes them here. I must have fixed 5 per green. Great course for a quick 9. Will be back when I need to get a quick round in. Course amenities are dismal but that doesn't take away from how nice of a course this is.

"River Edge is a Gem in Kitchener"

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.
