Nice track for a public course

The greens are nice and fairways need a little more rain to fill up. Bunkers are consistent. Overall great job. Course is definitely coming back.

Walk where golf’s legends walked.

A storied history accompanies you around Rio Pinar. The shots golf’s elite echo through the trees. Once totally private, now available to almost all golfers. It is a great layout in fair condition. But the greens are above par. You will enjoy your round at RP.

Good Improvement

The course was in pretty good shape. There were a few greens with some bare spots but overall fairly decent shape. The main problem was the backup on the tee boxes starting at hole number 4. It was tough waiting through 2 groups on the tee.

At one time this course must have been outstanding

I love the layout and the elevated greens, but when we played, the greens had been recently sanded which took some of the putting enjoyment out of our round. The biggest problem however was the lack of grass in the fairways which gave you the tightest lies that I have played in a long time. We played at 2 PM and breezed around the course in 3 hours.

Making a comeback

I believe Rio Pinar had fallen on hard times but she is making a comeback. Always a great layout, exceptional par 5’s, condition is getting much better. New sand in bunkers, greens very fast. A few shabby spots in the fairways but very playable. They are building additional practice facilities for short game. This course will only get better, great value. Highly recommend

Currently sanding and punching greens

Even though the greens have been sanded and are being punched, it was very playable and the greens still putt fairly smoothly. This course offers a variety of shots and is ideal for new golfers-- very flat and wide fairways.
