Hard to find a real flaw in my book, unless you need a grand clubhouse experience

I have played a dozen courses in Scotland--Acushnet River Valley remains one of my favorites--great value at off-hour rates--well maintained--friendly place to join other golfers as a single

Black friday golf

course was in pretty good condition for end of november
I think that its time for them to build a club house and get out of the trailer also i had a coupon for free carts which they would not accept because they are in fall rates, but coupon good till 12/31/19 so did not like that.,but the golf was good.

Fantastic ARV!

This course never disappoints! I love the variety of holes. The course is always in fantastic shape, from nice flat lush tee boxes to carpet like fairways to perfect greens. I have nothing bad to say about this course. Played on a somewhat chilly November day and we saw very few golfers. Finished the round in 3:25, superb! A+ course that they take care of very nicely. It is one of my go to courses once the weather starts getting bad. Generous fairways if you like to grip it and rip it. Nicely paved cart paths too, no bumpy dirt/rocky paths on this course. Enjoy!!!

Great track solid conditions

This has become my go to course on the South Coast. The course is always in solid shape and is a very nice layout. It is walkable, pretty flat with a couple of longer walks between holes. Pace of play can get a little slow if you tee off after 10. Not much for facilities but that doesn’t bother me.

Good value - Always in great shape

The course and greens are usually in great shape. The value is good, but the course is a little remote.

Great course!

Great conditions and awesome layout! Different look from every tee box– makes you dig through the bag. Better know your numbers and strike it pure. The juxtaposition between front and back was cool. Front is a little tighter with tree line fairways, and the back is fairly open/more links. Overall, great course and worth the visit!

Great Course for ALL Levels

I especially look forward to playing ACRV Golf Course whenever I get the chance to visit New Bedford. I REALLY enjoy the varied format ...front nine=hills & forest & back nine=basically links style. I am a senior golfer w/an approx. 14 handicap & generally find this course to fit well w/my capabilities. The course is usually in FINE condition when I visit in the Fall AND of course is especially colorful w/the seasonal colors of this time.

Slowest course in America

Course is decent but it takes 5-6 hours to play and the ranger/starter is a rude jerk. He doesn’t do his job and make the sure the pace of play is good. Also they’re so greedy their tee times are a joke and they ratpack as many golfers as possible on the course.

I have been wanting to play this course for a long long time and finally got the chance. It did not disappoint one bit, I enjoyed the course layout and condition it was in. Definitely one of the better courses I've played this summer!

One of our favorite courses.

The course was in great shape from tee to green. The pace of play was slow as most week-end rounds are. The ranger's job is to keep up the pace of play, but it seems most of the courses don't enforce it. That shoud be their primary duty.. To put aside the above criticism, the course still remains one of our favorites on the South Shore.

Good day

Great day out at this course. Only played 9 but the course was in great shape from tees two greens. Will definitely play again. Lots of older men and women’s groups on today but I was able to get out before their tee times.
