Gorgeous

Multiple tees make course playable for virtually all skill levels. Was a little intimidating at first glance but once we got into the round was able to adjust to it. In pretty decent condition considering recent lack of rain but were a few rough spots on some of the greens. Was definitely good value based on price paid through Golf Now. Will definitely play again when back in area.

Great layout, substandard condition

For such a challenging and exciting layout I was disappointed in the overall condition. Greens were adequate but thin in too many places, fairways were adequate also but too often we’re encroached upon by clover and weeds and the rough was half thick stemmed weeds. Only food was burgers and hot dogs of which after looking at them we passed. No golf professionals on staff is obvious. Was expecting more.

Great layout, greens were on the slower side but well kept.
More than a few blind shots. Bunkers did not look good on front 9, back 9 looked way better.
2nd group of the day finished 18 holes in 3 hours 30 mins.
well worth the 2 hour drive to get there and will be back.

Hadn’t been there in a while but the course was in good condition for the weather that we’ experienced lately. Some bunkers were not up to speed. I’ll play there again.

RiverWatch Good Course

RiverWatch is a very challenging and unique course. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition! This is not a course for those that just want to rip a driver. A lot of the par 4’s require placement shots from the tee box so that you can have an approach into the green; you can just about play every club in your bag. The only draw back are the bunkers, but they inform you of this at the clubhouse. A lot of them they are letting grow back since they don’t come into play and then they plan to recondition the remaining bunkers. Overall good track and nice drive for a weekend round!

Good course Have to hit the ball straight. But what I like is every hole is isolated from the others so on each hole you don’t see other golfers

Awesome Experience!

Played the course on 7/9/19 when in the area on vacation. The course was in great condition and a joy to play. Pace of play was awesome on a course that is truly a hidden gem! Always had a perfect lie in the fairway and the greens were rolling great! The staff made us feel like regulars and that made the day even better! Riverwatch is a top notch golf club.

Riverwatch is in Top Form

Another top-shelf loop today at Riverwatch. Great staff, as usual. The green on 11 is recovered. The fairways are pristine. The ‘Superintendent ‘ is on top of this course. It’s my favorite place to play when not in tournament-mode. Played with a first-timer Lanna today. She liked it so much, she’s coming back.
