Type Municipal
Located just south of downtown, Riverside Municipal Golf Course is a public facility that offers both an 18-hole regulation course and a nine-hole, par-3 course. Riverside dates back to the 1930s and its historical origins go back even further when it served as the site of Roosevelt's Rough Riders' preparation before the Spanish American War. The nine-hole course is a straightforward layout with no water and very little bunkering. The longest hole is only 130 yards, making the course ideal for beginners and juniors. The golf course is an enjoyable walk, seeing as walking is mandatory. The course is not challenging for more advanced players but it does provide a good warm-up before Riverside Municipal Golf Course's 18-hole course.

Top 3 Muni in SA

IMHO this course is one of the top three municipal golf courses in San Antonio. I rank it 3rd after Brackenridge and Cedar Creek. Between Brackenridge and this, I would probably pick Riverside because it's much more affordable. My absolute favorite thing about this course is that I got to play all 18 holes with the same ball, something that is extremely rare in San Antonio courses. The greens are not extremely challenging but they're in great shape and ball rolls pretty nice. The fairways and tee boxes are in excellent condition as well. I will definitely come back here. This will be in my rotation of golf course around San Antonio.

City course

For a city course, it was in great shape. Having never played the course before, you were able to determine where to land your ball and not get into trouble because of blind shots. There were some water hazards and sand traps but with a good shot, they weren't in play too often. Pace of play was great being a twosome but then caught up with the groups in front and slowed down considerably. For the price paid, it was a great deal. Would play it again if in the area. Also liked not having to tip cart kids, could take the cart into the parking lot.

rain, rain, rain

Rained the 1st 14 holes, in fact we were the only dummies out there so we move at a pretty good pace. The course stood up pretty well, no mud balls and the greens were as good as I've seen them at this course, the ball rolled better than expected. In spite of this being a city course and the poor weather that we experiencedn, we where happy with the round. It was a good value.

A quality municipal golf course

A quality municipal golf course with decent greens. Lots of doglegs, and a great back nine! We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Riverside. Four sets of tees for golfers of all abilities.

Good course for the price point

The course was in decent shape for a municipal. The entire course was dried out by the sun but all the tees and fairways had grass. The most attention needed at this course would be the greens. Overall, a good value for my money.
