Unfortunate Rushed Game

My foursome showed up to a double booked 3:15 tee time. We were told on hole 2 that we needed to “hurry up” and play quicker. It was unfortunate that my beautiful day of golf turned into us all skipping a hole completely (suggested by the employee who greeted us on hole 2) in order to compensate for the course's over scheduled day. There was an outing at the same time that we were not a part of. I had been to this course 3x in the past month with no problems but this particular round was one of the worst. A true waste of my money for the group/company.

River Glen used to be a nice course but poor management and horrendous grounds keeping has turned it into a goat ranch. Don't waist your time and money!

Great Course

Love River Glen. It is a challenging course and is in excellent condition. The practice facilities are top notch and the various Tee boxes offer all levels of golfers a challenge. Will come here again and again!

Great course but slow pace

I don’t know how many times I have driven past this course over the years always wanting to play. Even after reading other reviews about slow play I figured it was time to see what this course has to offer. Got an early tee time hoping to get ahead of the rush. Much to my surprise on the morning of my tee time it, forecast stated spotty showers. I thought, man I was in luck, I don’t mind golfing in the occasional sprinkle and most people would just rather stay dry. It wasn’t even the third hole where we started coming up in slow groups and things started piling up from there. We even saw a ranger driving around, but not quite sure what his function was since he never asked anything and just drove past. I could only imagine how the day would’ve gone in a sunny day. Would like to play the course again and love the layout but staff needs to get pace of play under control I don’t see me going back anytime soon.

Challenging yet playable

It’s been a couple years since I’ve played River Glen. The upgrades to the course are excellent! I like that they’ve flipped the front and back 9, the course is in great shape.
