Avery nice course

I have played this course a few times over the years. It is usually in top notch condition. This time I guess due to rain alot of fairways were wet to the point that some shots would plug on the fairway. A couple of holes had alot of heavy grass clippings on parts of the fairways. Again I am sure it was caused by periods of heavy rain prior to the day we golfed. First time i have ever seen this course in this condition. Overall we enjoyed our day very much.

Beautiful Country Setting

Enjoyed very much the elevation changes on the back nine. Number 12 is fabulous looking back from the green to the tee box. Water accumulation over last few weeks made it hard to find a "plugged" golf ball in the middle of fairway, otherwise this would have been an even higher rating.

Great Deal

Booked this as a Hot Deal. Very friendly staff and a great course. Unfortunately the course was very wet following 36 hours of rain. My favourite course to play in the area.

Good Shape

Thought the course was in good shape considering the winter we had. A little wet but it had been raining quite a bit. Only downside was the sprinklers on the greens we were playing at about 2:30.

well set in beautiful area

The course is in great shape after such a long winter.
Many more people would probably play there more often if it would be closer to Kingston, for example.

We enjoyed playing there a lot, above all, because it was a beautiful day.

There is a good balance between difficulty of the holes and reaching reasonable good results. A fun course to play.

Good variety of holes.

A good course with some challenges for the mid range handicapper. Greens were being sanded so difficult to evaluate condition.

course in great shape. greens fast

Got a great hot deal..course very challenging.
Each hole has an elevation and/or dogleg.
The wind was with us on#18 and our group all made the water off the tee. I missed the birdie!!! Nonetheless, grat way to finish a round.

Well conditioned. Interesting layout.

One of the most enjoyable and well conditioned courses in the greater Kingston area. Greens were quick and in good shape especially for mid Sept. Friendly staff and great clubhouse. We enjoyed our day at Rivendell and will be back.

Good, challenging course with fast greens & elevation changes

Fast greens were in great shape. We walked the course and found some tee boxes quite a distance & uphill from the previous hole. Friendly and courteous staff.

Lovely course with elevated tees, lots of Canadian Shield.

Unfortunately the day before we played, a dam had broken and flooded the course. Holes 16 & 17 were closed and #1 was very soggy. The staff were trying their hardest to get things back to normal and even substituted a practice hole for one of the flooded. It will be back to normal soon I'm sure.

Extremely well maintained course requireing good shot placement

Course was very well groomed and offered tempting challenges to shave a few strokes if your shot was accurate, otherwise it would cost you. Both open wide fairways and tighter options abound, a great course to play.

Great quick friendly experience

The round at Rivendell was a good time. The course has held up quite well with all of the rain that we have been getting, and there are a few holes that are quite challenging. I will be going back this year.

Great course, in good condition. I would play it again if I was in the area.

First time playing this course. It requires accuracy off the tee to avoid trouble. Well maintained and interesting holes. Greens were in excellent shape and their speed was good. Overall a great experience and real value for the money when booked through golfnow.com
