Course was in great condition. Some protected nature areas don't allow for looking/retrieving ball when it goes in, but otherwise a very nice course.

Watch out

Fairways are side by side and balls end up on the other fairway slowing play and could be dangerous. Heard fore at least once. Need to keep your head up.

Retired Super's opinion

I rated this course for what it is a 9 hole city course. It isn't Augusta National (which I've been there ) . This is a very well maintained challenging course with a nice layout. The clubhouse is newer, clean, well maintained building. Lunch was VERY good more of a restaurant than a golf clubhouse. Staff was friendly and professional. This is as good as it gets for a 9 hole city course !!!

Pace of play

my only questions are..... Who trains the starter? Why would a starter send out 4, 2-domes in a row instead of pairing groups up. Don't they know that creates a jam on the course which slows pace of play up immensely. Why have a ranger if they sit under a tree texting on their phone when it takes 2:55 to play 9-holes. Ridiculous slow. Not worth playing on the weekends unless you have 3+hours to play 9 holes

Sharp 9 hole course

I enjoyed my round of golf here even though I had to use a pull cart because the golf carts were not being used this day do to the recent rain the course received. A Visually pleasing course with some nicly placed hazards to keep you on your toes.

Pretty good value

Decent place to knock it around. Well maintained enough to not affect your game, but not great attention to detail.

Local course makes good

This is a very challenging 9 hole course. Water, trees, and the greens are well protected by bunkers. The greens were in good shape and very undulating and quick. Try River Bend and you won't be disappointed, The Bull

River Bend

This is a well maintained course with a very friendly staff. First time playing here, and the course (tee to green) is challenging to follow from hole to hole with it squeezed into a small space. Very beautiful landscape especially with the wetlands. Challenging course for a novice.

Customer service is atrocious

Starter likes to let his friends jump out on the course in front of groups which had already teed off. 3.5 hours to play 9 holes, and the rangers did nothing to help speed things up.

A good course for a quick 9

This is a great little course if you're looking for a quick 9 holes. By no means a championship challenge, but a nice challenge if you're looking to get out for a quick 9 holes. While not very difficult, the course is set up as a fair challenge and you have to really plan your way around the course if you want to score well.

Nice Challenging 9 Hole

Well maintained relatively challenging 9 hole course. I would say one of the nicest 9 holes in the area. Pace of play is a little slow sometimes with a mix of walking and riding players, this could be better controlled. If you are in a hurry be careful on the weekends. Weekend round took 3 hours+ way too much for 9 holes. Other than the pace its a nice challenging course and friendly staff.

Pack a lunch

9 holes on a Sunday afternoon took 3 hours! Either they overbooked or they were inefficient in pairing groups together.
