There’s been a death in the family

Send condolences. The green keeper has met a tragic end.
Deplorable.

Greens Need Improvement

I play Rio Pinar on a regular basis and always enjoy playing there. However, I was surprised to see some of the greens in bad shape. I'm not sure what's going on with them, but they were spotty and in one case the green was mostly packed sand. I hope they can resolve this issue quickly.

Greens in good condition

Our group recently returned to reopenor. The course was in good condition. Unfortunately there was a very slow foursome that kept all of the groups waiting. It seems this for some felt that they own the course and therefore would not let anyone pass, therefore we all waited. Slow play. Other than that highly recommend the course.

First time

The course is generally in good condition. The greens appear to have been recently repaired, with one green still under repair. We finished playing quickly in just 3:15 hours and I am a disabled player.

Good course, bad timing

Rio Pinar is a favorite of our group. Unfortunately, the pace of play right now is really slow. After a 2 1/2 hour front 9 in the heat, we called it a day. We were told that another course close by is closed for renovations and Rio Pinar is getting all of their regulars. Love the course and we will be back once things slow down a little.

Pace of play far too slow due to double bookings

We had bought a hot deal for 11am. We did not tee off until 11:45am. They were out of carts and once you received a cart it was a 4 group back up to get to the tee. I was informed that they are double booking and even triple booking tee times and telling customers to “deal” with it. Very slow pace of play all day. Waiting for every shot. Poor all around unfortunately. We will not be returning until their morale has changed.

Course was overbooked

We arrived at 10:30 for our 11am tee time. No golf carts were available and we were told that they were 45 min behind. We teed off close to 11:50 and finished past 5 pm. Very disappointed, course was way overbooked and pace of play was not managed by the course marshal.

Too slow and weather too hot!

The course conditions were adequate, but the greens definitely are suffering a bit. The pace of play was very slow and when factoring in the heat it was too much for me, so I quit after 2.5 hours and 9 holes.
