Don't let the trees take all your balls.

Riverwood is a nice alternative in Bismarck to the more expensive Hawktree course. This course is inundated with huge trees that just seem to grab everything in the vicinity of them. If you're hitting in them or even grazing them you will a long round with many rescue shots coming your way.
The staff was very nice but did stress the cart path only rule, which I felt was unwarranted under the conditions of the course. At $46 and no apparent reason for this rule there was no way I was going to follow this rule.
The greens were a little dry and the sand bunkers were almost washed out. Aside from that it was in very good shape. They could certainly use some water coolers for us golfers.
