Riverview Great Course

Riverview was a blessing in disguise. It surprised me how great of a course it was and price was very fair. I will recommend this to anyone.

Options

Riverwood is a pleasure to play with the options of 27 holes. Course was in great shape with the exception of punched greens. One of the best bangs for your buck in the area. Deer Run is my favorite of the 3, nine holes.

Great value

I booked this sight unseen and couldn’t be happier. The layout is challenging with a great degree of elevation changes and dog legs. If you can shape the ball or hit it straight, you’ll love this course. Otherwise, you should probably hang out on their driving range. Staff was great, beverage cart was seen often, and course was in very good shape despite three days of continuous rain. Will definitely play again!

Great course, somewhat challenging

My first time at this course and I love it. The course & greens are in excellent condition. Many of the holes are very challenging because of water hazards and sand traps. and because it is very hilly.
The carts are battery operated which I like, as opposed to noisy gas which some courses still have.

River wood late spring

Course did not have my golfnow reservation even though I had receipt. They shoe horned me in but right now It’s self governed starts, so fellow players are asking what’s your tee time a separating players accordingly. Not very efficient but everyone works it out well on their own.
Course conditions were crusty and dry, including greens. So plenty of roll but unpreferred lies most of the time. Needs syringing on the greens and sprinklers turned on.

Excellent Greens

Played Meadows/Deer Run today. Greens were very good and quicker than they looked. Fairways were good compared to other courses in the area....a little thin but dry. Sand traps were marginal. Good conditions for NC golf at this time of year.....should be nice when the heat returns.....April.

Great place to play. Friendly staff, challenging but fair layout. Due to recent rainfall course was wet and sloppy in spots. Looking forward to playing when dry.

Good, Tough Course

Riverwood is a 27 hole course that offers some good challenges. Tough, tight fairways with difficult and fast greens means it’ll be a good day. It’s not overly tough if you play from the correct tee box for your handicap though. I enjoy how it forces you to hit the ball both directions and use almost every club in the bag.

Some of the tee boxes when I played were in bad need of some work but the fairways were very good and the greens solid.

The pin placement on the greens was incredibly tough when I played. They were always sitting on ledges or knolls which made it a good putting challenge.

Overall, a great course and great value. Definitely one of my favorites.

Not worth it

Played here today for the first time. There is no order in which you start. There were no gaps in between groups. There were more “traffic jams” and waiting times than actual game play time. Would not recommend to anyone.

Free for all golfing

This is the most unorganized golf course in the area. NO RANGER and the person in the clubhouse is SUPPOSED to know what is going on???????? Never gets off his stool and sits behind the computer surfing the net????????? Got behind a slow group and was stuck there. Wouldn't be bad if it was packed. Maybe 6 groups out there and all backed up behind the slow group??????? Called the clubhouse and said he "Could not leave the counter." ????????? Just about a 5 hour round in the cold????? NEVER PLAT THERE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will spend my money on the courses I passed to get to this one. I AM SURE THEY WILL APPRECIATE MY PATRONAGE!!!!!!!
