Spend your money elsewhere
This course is a goat farm. Overgrown, outdated and the staff is poor. Quit playing after 6 holes because conditions were so poor. Friend played the week prior and the axle came off the golf cart while he was driving causing the cart to flip. Staff laughed at the incident. Wouldn’t spend another dollar here.
Very Flat, wide fairways
Good course, especially for beginner and intermediate golfers. Wide fairways. Not many hazards. Pretty much long and straight. Not the most beautiful course I’ve ever been on, and not in immaculate condition.
We didn’t get to play 18 holes because A tournament was started during the middle of our play and that messed us up.
To sum up, it’s just an average/good golf course. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Fun golf course!
It never disappoints. I take my boys here at least once a month from Baton Rouge. The greens were a little slower than last time but overall were putting true.
Course needs work.
The greens are a little bumpy and have almost no grass on them.
Fairways are hard with all types of weeds and grass growing, nothing to hit off.
As usual the staff was friendly. The ‘character’ of some of the holes was greatly changed by Ida. So many trees have been removed as a result of the hurricane. Coming out of the winter months the course conditions were about what I expected for my $23.00. The greens (browns) are not in the best of shape at the moment. Hopefully spring weather and some good care will remedy that problem. The fairways were in surprisingly decent shape.
My complaint is the pace of play. As my threesome stopped behind the 5th tee box (par 3) , watching the threesome ahead of us tee off, they warned us about what was ahead of them. They said they would have let us through except for what they experienced on the prior holes. So I looked at the 6th hole (par 5). Well this is lovely.
A FIVESOME was around the 6th green. A single was in the fairway waiting to hit onto the green and ANOTHER SINGLE was on the tee box. Watching the FIVESOME play EXCRUCIATING SLOWLY we ‘snail paced’ along through holes 7-11. On each hole we sat behind a tee box while the threesome ahead of waited for the FIVESOME to clear the fairway. Somewhere around the 8th the singles either were let through (doubtful) or skipped ahead. After the 11th, as the FIVESOME was walking off the 12th, we made the convenient skip ahead to the 14th. Note that the 13th was wide open as were the 14th-18th. As we driving across the bridge to the 18th green the FIVESOME was headed to the 16th tee. We didn’t bother to go back to play 12&13.
This the second at Riverlands time in the past few months that I have skipped from the 11th to the 14th because of a FIVESOME . Either ban FIVESOMES or educate them to say “Play through.”
While most greens are playable, many have gaps that need repair. Tee boxes are average but many have very hard ground. Sand bunkers are in good shape. The loss of so many trees have removed many of the driving difficulties.
Course and clubhouse had severe damage from Hurricane Ida. Despite the ongoing hassles with insurance, the clubhouse has been totally renovated and several hundred large trees have been cut and removed. Stump grinding in progress. This is a remarkable recovery and demonstrates the commitment to return this course to its pre-storm quality. No doubt the work is on pace.
