Course review

Employee at desk extra friendly and helpful. Entire course in good shape. Really enjoyed the round. Only 1 problem im a 76 year old senior. So walking roped off areas a bit too much for me.

One of my favorites

I love playing this course. We try squeezing into the hot deals for obvious reasons, but honestly we play this course more because of it. If their flat rate was like 35-40$ we’d probably play here every weekend. Also the only complaint I really have about this course is some trees need to be trimmed down. That large tree on hole one needs trimmed or taken down almost makes it impossible to get onto the green in two… also hole 16 the par three there’s a tree on the right side of the tee box that needs just a little trimming. Overall great course challenging but playable for all levels if they use the correct tees. Have shot 2 of my best rounds here with a 77 and 79 from the blues.

Getting Better every day.

The course was hit with the very cold weather in February but it is starting to green up. Greens are not quite there yet but they too are coming around. The only real negative I can say is the tee boxes were not in good shape at all.

Fairways in poor shape. Greens were matted.

I previously golfed at River Bend about three years ago. It was in better shape then compared to yesterday.

Reminds me of old municipal course

This corse and layout is like playing golf on municipal courses in the 1950 s. The course is short and fairways ample. The greens are good but tend to be a tad slow. Good course for seniors and great price.

Areas cordened off

The corded off areas are ridiculous. You might as well not rent a cart. To get to the greens you need to walk 50 to 70 yards to putt. The rest of the course is very good. It's definitely not set up for senior Play!0

DO NOT PLAY AT THIS COURSE!!!!

I just moved down here to the valley from Dallas and went to play a round here. The staff is very unprofessional. As soon as I walked in the club house, they didn't greet me but just asked me when my tee time was. They were hesitant to even give me the cart keys because I was 25 minutes early like seriously?? I've never had anyone tell me this in the past. I was approached on hole 8 since I was not on the cart path by the same guy that almost didn't give me my keys. He yelled at the top of his lungs to get on the cart path without ever giving me a warning or telling me when I received my keys. I told him I would hit first then get on the cart path, he immediately threatened to call the cops on me. At this point I was frustrated and asked what his problem was, he went back to the clubhouse and called the cops. The cops approached me and asked me to leave the golf course. A reminder, this was all just for being on the fairway without any warning. Customer service should be a lot better than this. Also, fairways were not cut, and greens were in rough shape. I will never come back to this course. And there are a lot nicer places to play in the valley for $40 a round.

First time golfing Monte Cristo

Was really surprised at the condition of the course. Greens are in great shape and better than most of the ones in RGV.
