Great course

Over all the conditions of this course are great. The only negative thing to mention is that the pacer was not seen until the end. 9 holes in almost 2.5 hours for a quick 36 par course.

Great amenities and friendly staff. Definitely will be back.

Average. Slow greens and play.

OK course I guess, conditions were good except the greens were very slow. Also the group ahead was painfully slow, we took about 2:15 for 9. i clicked "no" on would you recommend - not because it's that bad, but because Village Links just up the road is a better choice at comparable rates.

Great course for a tune up.

If you're looking for a 9 hole course to work on your game, this course works well. Challenging enough to test you. Short enough to not have to spend an entire day. Pace can be slower than you'd like but not too bad most of the time.

River Bend

Very nice 9 hole course. Kept up well and the pro shop staff very friendly. If you don’t have a deal, it is very expensive for 9 holes. You could find 18 for almost the same price in the general vacinity. The dollar amount I paid was a good value.

Course was in great condition, but the pace was really slow. Took 2 hours and 50 minutes to complete 9 holes. Our foresome had to wait on every tee for a threesome with carts in front of us.
