Had a good round but reading speed and break on greens was difficult, since they were recently aerated and missing sand in the holes so they were quite bumpy.

Surprisingly difficult. Some dog legs play like hair pin turns. Would like to see more shade on the course and maybe a bit more directions. First timers should take a map or use GPS

My group and I knew that the round would be slow when we pulled up and saw 3 4somes stacked up on 1.... but did not expect to be walking off 18 green 5 and a half hours after we teed off. Greens were in great shape, as always love the course layout, but management needs to stop overloading tee times every 5 minutes. We had to wait on every tee box on the front 9 for an average of 10-15 minutes. Really killed our enthusiasm for playing this course.

Very fun and challenging course to play. Played after a rainstorm so there were a lot of branches down and the sand bunkers were not in good shape, but other than that course was an excellent condition.

Caught a cooler day in early June, and the course was in great condition considering our drought/heat. They should call this course the dog leg, because they're everywhere, and they force you to be smart in your approach and use all the sticks in your bag. Plenty of elevated greens that are fun to shoot at, as there's usually a side you don't want to miss to. Greens were in great shape and rolling true (though not terribly fast). Several long putts made during our round.

Marshalls appeared a couple times during the round, but our pace (and those ahead/behind) was steady all day. The starter was friendly and having a good time with us. This isn't always the case on typically crowded, public courses, so it was a refreshingly positive start to the round that rolled into an all around great day of golf.

Call the course for specials, they have weekday deals and summer promos.. I believe Mon-Thurs rounds are $39, including cart, range balls, and a sleeve of Pro-V1!

This course is constantly watered in all the right places so the fairways are lush and the greens (albeit mostly small) hold shots as if you were the first round of the day. Greens are consistently quick. This course is always in better shape than any other in the D/FW area. Plenty of challenging variety yet short enough to score hitting greens in regulation if you can shape the ball. The downside; the clubhouse is not convenient to the turn, you need a cart to get to the driving range and one of the holes borders the range so there were yellow balls everywhere. I love this golf course!

Played today, tee time at 1pm. This course is deceiving when you pull up. Older clubhouse, doesn't look like much from the parking lot. But man, is it a gem. Awesome layout all the way around, fair but challenging (except #7, that's a dumb golf hole). Greens rolled GREAT, which seems to be a rarity in the DFW area right now. Definitely worth the play!

Riverside is best known as the course that floods when the Trinity overflows its banks but it should be known as a good choice for convenience and value. Be aware that the wind will have much more effect here as it is mostly open. Surprisingly the are quite a few tough holes that can really punish an errant shot. The greens have some poanna as does every Bermuda course this year. It has been tough all over to get smooth surfaces. Riverside could use one of those facelifts by a great architect but in the meantime it is a good choice on a calm day.

The day was WINDY. Close to 20 mph. The layout of this course is very interesting, and very challenging in the wind. The only hole I just DO NOT care for is the par four, 15th. The drive must be long and perfectly placed, more than any other hole on the course. The smart duffer will hit an iron left of the bunker on the right and somewhere near the 150 yard marker. Anything that lands in the fairway will roll left and into the trees or creek. This day, there were a lot of tight lies in the fairways. Tee boxes were in good shape. The bunkers were well maintained, except the fairway bunkers on number four needed more sand - almost like hitting off a modified hard pan. The greens were in really good condition, rolling smooth and true - but a few had the "volcano effect" around the cup. Never saw a Marshall and usually don't on this course. The foursome in front of us refused to let us play through. They played by committee, and there were two holes empty in front of them. We usually play a round in 3.5 hours. This was almost a 5 hour round!

Go play Riverside! It's a fun and interesting course.
