OK but not great

Small with somewhat oldish decor. Upside parking easy and onsite, food good and super cheap, tennis courts in poor repair. The outside deck really needs updating.

Loved the geography. Very green compared to other courses nearby. Not wet despite much rain. Nice greens. Pretty course and nice staff. I am not a great golfer but I felt fairly confident on all holes.

Early tee times, two deer on the first fairway. Eight friends, great weather. The first nine was fine, but a ranger who should have worn a cowboy hat and a six gun, but had no clue about his job ruined the day. He stopped us and asked that we speed up when there was (or had not been) anyone in... More

We've played The River Club over a number of years and like the Course very much. There are some very challenging holes but you feel that they could do a bit more. Some of the Bunkers were unplayable not because we couldn't wield a SW but they were rock hard. The greens could also do with some work. Misty Creek... More

The greens were in terrible shape. This is an older course with a nice layout but it has been let go. It is too expensive compared to the other courses in the area.

They have really let this course go. It's a reasonable layout, that has been ruined. They need to blow it up.

I have played the River Club a few times. The staff is fine, the course is nice, some holes have difficult layout but normally in decent shape. This time the greens were terrible. Don't know if they have had some type of problem but they were essentially devoid of grass. Basically putting on thinned out grass and sand and so... More

This is one of those golf courses that could be nice, if it were maintained. They could bail hay from some of the rough. Cart paths full of cracks and bumps. They are the narrowest I've ever seen. Lack of grass on the greens. Crabgrass everywhere else. Obviously owners don't care. The only good thing I can say is there... More

We had a great time playing this course even though it had rained the two previous days & rained on us for about 30 mins. during our round. Some of the fairways were too wet for carts which had warning signs up, you just had to play casual water rules. The greens were great. I had no problem playing out... More

The course & management needs improvement. Don't seem to be organized. Good driving range. The club house breakfast for $2.99 is an excellent bargain.
