Great day

Really enjoyed the day. We played in 3 hours 15 minutes. It felt like we had the course to ourselves. We played Cattails/Spirit nines. Good layout, good condition. Only bad comment, Fix Your Ball Marks People!!! I fixed 4 or 5 on every green. Nice friendly staff.

Nice layout but needs improvement

I arrived 45 minutes before my HOT DEALS Prepaid tee time. Staff in the pro shop wanted to charge me for a cart. Looked through my confirmation email and there is no indication that cart was included. Opened the app on my phone to show all hot deals include a cart. They finally relented and gave me a chit for a cart. Got to the cart to load my clubs and it was filthy. Others were the same. They sit outside all the time and due to recent rain and mud cart paths they are covered in mud. Hooked up with a threesome at the first tee. They also had an issue in the pro shop as they had booked to play 9 holes and the pro shop guy was unhappy that they were not playing 18 due to lost revenue.

Once we teed off things got better. Course layout is nice but cart paths are mud and gravel with occasional patches of pavement. Greens had a lot of ball marks. Finished the front nine in 2 hours and my threesome dropped out. Tow fellows joined me for the back nine and we played quickly finishing my total round in 4 hour 11 minutes.

This course has great potential if they train the pro shop staff a bit better and improve the access road, gravel parking lot and cart paths. I won't rush back to play again this year.

Great pace. Best only if on sale.

I liked the course. Forgiving, did not use driver to often. Got away with 3 hybrid and six iron. Green plays true and sleek, getting use to took some time defensive . 4hrs three players. I will play again if it’s on sale for $51.00 . First experience was alright used the cart well driving up measureing and spot landing.

Great course!

The course was in great shape. I arrived early to hit some balls and was able to get out before my scheduled tee time. The track had a bit of everything, some Narrow gaps, strategically placed bunkers and ‘risk/reward’ holes. Although there were some hills, the course was pretty easy to walk. I play just before 8 AM on a Tuesday and finished in just over three hours for 18 holes. Pace of play was awesome

Played the Cattails Course and it is very challenging. Must keep the ball on the fairway or consider the ball lost. The rough is VERY ROUGH and grass is very thick and high. No chance to retrieve any ball in the rough. The Spirit Course is much more fun to play being a little more open and and more foregiving.

Golf is very good cart paths and road not so much

The course is a great layout and in great shape. Greens are pretty good.

The cart paths and entrance road are desperately in need of some work.

Staff were all fantastic which more than makes up for the cart paths.

Fast pace golf

I came out early Saturday morning and got paired with two members, Dan and Jeff. I had a good time with the guys, played and watched some good golf, under 3h, walking. It was very wet, though. Day before it was pouring whole day plus morning dew, but course hold up very well. Fun 27 holes to play, would recommend it.

Played all 27 holes. Exhausted from walking, a couple of hills to deal with. Well worth the visit. 3 nines quite different and challenging in their own ways. Regular golfers will appreciate the layout and nuances of the course.

Two different courses

The Milburn 9 was great for a golfer looking for something different than the normal prairie courses. Lots of trees and elevations. The Cartails 9 was more links type, with scrub. Both in excellent condition but we have had lots of rain.

Slowest round ever

My husband and I played Millburn and Cattails yesterday and it was BRUTALLY slow. We saw a Marshall once and he really didn’t do anything. We waited about 10 mins on average on most holes. Granted we were a two-some and expected to wait occasionally but this was ridiculous.
I’ve played here quite a number of times and have thoroughly enjoyed it (which is the only reason I said I’d recommend it). If yesterday had been my only experience, I would neither recommend it nor return.
Hopefully next round will be better but I’m going to be hard pressed to pick River Spirit over some other area courses for my next few rounds.
You had LOTS of unhappy golfers yesterday River Spirit. With tons of competition for golf dollars close by, you need to address and fix this as you have a great course.

Lovely and challenging course

I went there after finding a good deal in GolfNow. I typically play most of my rounds in an intermediate municipal golf course and found River Spirit much longer and challenging, which is good for a change and practicing more long shots. Course condition was great, although fairways close to the greens seemed to be quite hard.

Nice course, friendly staff, allows dogs on Sunday’s

First of all I just want to comment on how friendly and helpful the staff are. They are certainly a Big part of why a golf course is successful. I like the fact they're are 3 x 9 hole courses which can add a bit of variety when playing there on a regular basis. Luv the fact they allow dogs on Sunday’s cause as a dog owner I luv my dog and I luv to play golf. Price is certainly reasonable. Ok the bad or the odd. The pro shop is on the 2nd floor and the clubhouse is on the main. With the scenery that they have I would of expected an outdoor deck overlooking the 9th holes or facing the mountains, I mean who wouldn’t want to eat a decent meal facing the mountains. No starter or marshal to make sure the pace of play was on time. The area around the carts is a bit chaotic and they need a net between the driving range and the first hole of the spirit course. All in all it was still a pleasant experience, so we’ll be definitely be back
