Considering the date (Oct 27) and the fact we live in Calgary, Alberta the course was in amazing condition. They did their best to keep the leaves off the fairway. Always enjoy playing at River Spirit. Beautiful scenery and the holes just challenging enough. The course offers 27 holes and 18 were open. Booked a Hot Deal and the proshop let us play 27 holes. Great day! Excited to golf at River Spirit again next season.

Very good course with greens in excellent condition. We played Spirit/Millburn nines. Walked both nines, and Millburn was the tougher walk, but certainly doable. A bit of up and down into the river valley. Greens were true and quick. Ball held well. Traps have white sand, but not lots of it, thankfully. The Millburn nine is somewhat tighter, with loads of poplar/cottonwoods. Playing the Blue tee box made for some long par 4s. My wife played the reds, and found them a bit repetitive...150/150 to the green. They need to make a Blue/White combo and a Red/White combo, to mix it up a bit. Enjoyable round and would recommend it.

COurse was in great shape and greens rolled nice. Just the right amount of hazards to provide the challenge. The scenery in the valley was amazing play along the river.

"Beautiful grass with trees, mountain backdrop and water"

A bit of a drive West of Calgary but always a good time and worth the price when going on a nice day. This place is home to 27 holes which helps maintain the beautiful grass of the fairways, greens and even tee boxes. Certain holes are very open and make it easier to find the balls that stray away from the fairways. Other holes you are playing around trees and around water. Pace of play has always been good here for me (played 5 times now). Love coming out and making the trip to River Spirit on those beautiful days when you can see the mountains that form a beautiful backdrop for some holes. Staff has always been friendly and quickly offer to take your bags and load them into the carts. Electronic power carts with screens showcasing distance to the hole and electronic scorekeeping is a nice touch.

I lost a tonne of balls on Cattail, all of our group of 4 struggled on our back nine where as Millburn wasn't anywhere near as difficult for our front. Greens very fast. Windy and smokey (forest fires) made following ball a challenge on a few holes. Beautiful course, hope to play again this season and play the other 9 that we haven't played yet.

Course is so beautiful and good maintaining, and every hole has special to be challenging and memorable... it is not easy to keep par at long par four hole, and it is tough to keep driving ball into the fairway....

We swung a deal thru golf now. Having played this course for the first time, I was not all that impressed. Seemed short staffed, and what staff were working weren't all that helpful or courteous. Too many loosers cranking music from their golf carts as well. Felt like I was at a flipping dance party. Not sure what happened to the etiquette of the game, might as well put on my daisy dukes and mustard stained muscle shirt in fact who needs a shirt? Disappointed.
