I play this course quite a bit. Definitely one of the better courses in the area. Good value for a course that was previously a private country club.

I will be playing this course many times next year. One of the best courses I have played this year, it was like being at a country club. This is the first time I played this course and it will not be the last, you can count on that.

While I generally play at Aberdeen or Sandy Pines, River Pointe was nice. Some challenging holes, nice staff.

I was a member of River Pointe when it was a private club and returning there was like going home. I played the Blue and White courses and found them to be in better shape now than they ever were when it was private. The new owner however is letting a great asset go to waste. The clubhouse is beautiful but closed.

If it wasn't for the owner's son's complete lack of respect to the paying customers, this would have been a good course. He and his 4 buddies held many golfers up so they could have their own group of 5. As my group of 2!! caught them at a tee box the 5th golfer had just taken his 4th shot off the tee box. They all looked at us and drove off. I went to the club house and explained this, this is when nobody wanted to do anything because " it's the owner's son" Well owner's son... I will never play this course again because of your arrogance and lack of respect for paying customers.

Pace was terrible, I was a single on a Wed afternoon, and it took forever. There isn't a ranger but some guys drive around on carts but they serve no purpose. At one time on a par 5 there were four groups on the hole, and one gentlemen stopped to make a joke instead of inquiring or doing anything about the pace. They seemed to be only using 18 of the 27 holes available.

This course is great. There are 3 different nine hole courses and you get 2. Pace of play was slower than I would have liked but the course was great and the price was hard to beat. Would certainly go back.
