Slow play on a hot day

There was a very large group ahead of us (20 or so) and they played pretty slowly. The day was hot, slow and frustrating. The course is great - I just wish they had let us go out on 10 instead of saying the large group would move along quickly. We stopped at the turn hoping things would thin out, and we were offered the option to replay the front nine, or just kill some time over there while we waited, but there were carts lined up over there ready to go out too. Good for the course, bad for a twosome.

River Watch Review

extraordinary layout --- from the tips you really must be a low single digit handicap to master this course. Greens are bent grass, very fast and undulating --- traps were washed out due to very recent rains but they were dealing with them. the courses only real weak point was the condition of most of the tee boxes.... I have played on countless courses including tour stop courses of Shinnicock, TPC Los Colinas (Byron Nelson), Colonial and Castle Pines. This course's fairways are hands down the best of all of them

Always a nice Challenge

I have been playing this Course for 8 yrs. it is about an hour drive for me but worth the drive. The course layout is very challenging with some great carries on a few holes. The greens had a little bit of black fungus but considering the rain and heat we have had in our area it is tuff to prevent. It did not effect our game. Look forward to playing again soon!

Great course, always a great challenge

Got rained out after 13 holes. No worries though, only paid $6 with a $20 Golfnow discount. Course is always in great shape. Tees are a little hard, but fairways and greens are perfect. My only issue was that they had changed the front nine and the person in the pro shop did not inform me about this. They have made the old 8@9 holes, # 1@ 2. So I started on 3, which used to be #1. A little confusing. My GPS was still calibrated to the old way, so my yardage was correct, but the score card was different. Anyway, I figured it out when I got to the 1st par 3. And it never affected my round. But a little info on this would have been nice. I even explained to the pro shop employee that I hadn't been there in a couple of years. I guess it just slipped his mind. Most of the players there are regulars. And a nice bunch of people. I will be back.

Tough but beautiful

Course was beautiful and in great shape. Fairways are pretty narrow (I lost several balls). Hole locations were difficult. Seemed like a lot of slope on greens. Overall great experience. It is a long drive for me but worth it.

Tough Round on Beautiful Course!!!

Course was in awesome condition and laid out very tough with some tucked pins. Enjoyed the round and staff was very accommodating and friendly. 5 Stars for Course and Service. A real gem hidden in the rough.

Difficult for Ladies

This course is difficult for Senior Lady golfers. Some of the up hill Par 4's over 300 yds. play another 25 yds. Longer. It is a challenge.
