Great track if you drive well

Riverwood is designed for long ball hitters off the tee. Fairly wide open but plan to use most of the clubs in your bag. Greens were fast, but readable and friendly.

Perfect day for golf

Perfect day...70 degrees. Course is in incredible shape. Challenging, but fair layout. The greens were unbelievably fast as they were playing their club championship this weekend. Had a putt roll off the green. But, easy to read because the putts roll so well. Better give yourself uphill putts.

Not a Fan

I am not a fan of this course, First time playing and not impressed. The pace of play was very slow. It was a Monday. The cart paths were awful and need lots of work. It has 3 nine hole courses. We played Deer Run and Meadowland. Deer Run has water on every hole and steep rolling hills. The course is very pretty and scenic. The Meadowlands has little to no water, but it is very short. The greens were fast and challenging which are great, but the course just wasn’t any fun to play. Overall, I will not play it again.

Not COVID friendly

Asked for a single cart and was willing to even pay for two single carts for the second individual in my foursome. Manager stated that it was not policy to allow single carts because the put “too much time” on the carts. We requested a refund because we didn’t feel comfortable riding two to a cart. They do provide a vinyl divider on some carts, but that is not enough at this time. Went to another course that allowed single carts. I will not go back to Riverwood while they still have this policy or until Covid is more under control. There are many courses to play in the area that are more concerned for their golfers than their carts. That’s where my foursome will spend our dollars.

Quality

Course was in great shape. With three 9 hole options pace of play was fantastic especially for a weekend round. Greens were rolling very well and gave you the ability to use every club in the bag playing from the tips.

Good But Tough Track

Have been wanting to play this course for some time and finally got the chance to do so. If you've never played it before, some of the tee shots are elevated and landing areas are hidden from view. Greens are quick but not fast. This is not only a shotmaker's course, but much more target golf than bombs away. The rough isn't awful, but wayward shots will result in tough approaches or an almost-certain bogey ( or worse) around the green. Lots of elevation changes make club selection a premium. Bring extra balls because you're going to lose a few. Clubhouse has a good selection of beers for the back nine swing lube. This course takes a few rounds before one can truly score well. Give it a shot.
