Great Conditions

This was the third time that I've played River Island and the second time in two weeks. The course was well maintained, especially the greens. The Tule River is still receiving snowmelt so the river is beautiful. The weather was perfect with slight, cooling breezes throughout the day.

River Island Golf Course

The course was in good shape and it’s nice to be accommodated so quickly and at a good price. Although it gets backed up and is really hot out there it is a nice place to play.

Great day of golf

Teed off at my tee time, course played nice. And a descent pace of play with as many people who were playing. I recommend trying to play this course to anyone who hasn't. I know I'll be playing again reel soon.

R Blazer

Coarse lay out was challenging. Some trees off the tee made it intraquet mostly in the path could use some tree trimming. The greens were nice but also need some care on level of cut as your approaching the green. The center fairway grass was to tall not allowing the ball to travel further distance and would hide your ball to the point that you could not find it. Pace was slow but other than those simple corrections it was nice .

Had a terrible experience

Reserved my tee time in advanced. Flew in from out of state. Course was a mess. No carts or push carts were available that day. (My cart ran out of power on a previous visit a few months earlier. Had to walk the last 3 holes.) Carts are on their last leg by the way. So I asked for a discount on my recent visit, since my only option was to walk. Didn’t get one, of course. I didn’t want to make a big deal of it. The thing that bothered me the most though, was the terrible, sarcastic attitude of the young man that tended to me. That was unacceptable! It seems like the maintenance/upkeep of this course and it’s customer service keeps going down further down the drain. Will never play there again!

Slow play

Love the Course but the slow plate aren't letting faster players or single players through when their playing with 3 or 4 players. Then their are some that take their time when it's not necessary on the Greens. Trust me their not pro's.. Other than that Love the Course.

Best course in the area

Front 9 pace was very slow due to a fivesome that was totally oblivious. They had 2 complete open holes in front of them after 3 holes. Absurd. Called the pro shop and the marshall came out twice to tell them they were holding up everyone. Came again and finally told them to let others play through. Took our threesome over 2 1/2 hours on the front; only 1 1/2 hours on the back nine. Pace of play is usually much better - amazing that 1 group had play backed up before they finished 3 holes.
Course is in good condition; most greenside bunkers have plenty of sand. Greens are coming around after being punched/sanded a few weeks ago.

Bad Timing?

Neither GN nor the course mentioned the sanded greens nor the tournament. Not good when two players drive an hour and the other two more than an hour and a half.
Pace was close to 5 1/2 hours
Most of course is green with a few patches of brown.
Course has a great layout in a rural location.

Good times

This course always is a challenge but they have it in pretty good condition right now. The fairways need a little help other than that the greens were rollin fast and the tees are in good shape. Had a blast and will be back soon.

Love the course, the greens are tricky can't tell how their gonna play one from another. Club selection is critical alot tougher than I was expecting. I'm certain that I will play there many more times.
Thank you to the staff excellent customer service.
