Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Colorado
Hard to find your ball even in the fairway with dandelions covering the course. Beatiful and fun back nine (but also covered in dandelions) . Friendly staff and great grill.
Course was being soaked on all the fairways. Chips dug into muck. Drives would plug.
Post Labor Day Round
On our annual father/son golf outing, we were looking forward to a round at a course we had never played. When booking the tee time we were advised that the greens would be aerated. We were okay with that having played with those green conditions at other courses. Unfortunately, when we arrived, the back nine was under going the aerification, and therefore was closed. We played the front nine twice using the men's tees for the first nine, and the tips for the second effort. All around, a good course and round.
Great views and location, fast greens
Fun. Great views. Only thing that stood out as a slight negative was the LIGHTING fast greens. If you didn’t hit the cup it was goodbye ball. I would definitely come back
Greens and fairways were in great shape
The back nine is stunning
Very peaceful setting
No houses crowding any fairways.
Wow to River Creek Golf Course
We only played the back nine which had many
different elevation changes tee to green. From the tee on some holes you had to know your carry distance to properly place your ball. It was not always necessary to hit driver off the tee to get the proper placement. It was an enjoyable morning playing this nine.
Great course, great staff
We played July 4th and had a blast. The views are incredible, the clubhouse staff were all super friendly, and the course was a good challenge for all of us. I will be back, even if I have to vacation out here again to do it. We saw views and wildlife that were as beautiful as anything we saw on a 2-week CO circle and we never left the course.
For $20 Hot Deal you cannot beat it... Views and clean are worth the $20 bucks alone . throw in golf...
P. S. keep the ball below the pins.
Love playing this course! Great views, good flow but man those greens sure are fast!
very scenic rocky formations,wonderful views
Looks alone is worth the drive to Rifle. The friendly staff were happy and made us welcome. Back nine is where I found the stunning views and more challenging holes. I recommend the course for anyone wanting to play in the state of Colorado.
most interesting back 9 ever
Don't know how they built the back 9 into the existing landscape. Nice front 9 but nothing special. The back 9 is much harder than the front, much more interesting and just a pleasure to play. I still don't know how they made greens, fairways (generally level), and tee boxes out of the existing terrain. There is a par 3 on the back 9, less than 150 yards that has an elevation change of maybe 100 feet. In my view the signature hole is the 16th. Long par 4 with an elevation change that might be over 400 feet. If you know where to aim and are accurate enough, you could drive the green without being a long hitter. Would/will play this course again.
Friendly staff, good grill in a rocky mountain setting with great course conditions. The back nine is to die for! Going back again even though a 90 minute drive from Aspen.
Play it twice.
Nice course. Would play some shots different the second time. Not knowing the course cost a few shots here and there. Overall tough layout, greens very tricky and fast. Some tough pin placements..
very scenic back nine. Holes 13,14 might be the toughest back to back holes I have played. TIGHT to say the least. I would play it again.
