SLOW !!!!

The pace of play was the slowest I have ever seen. We had a fivesome in front of us and I heard they had a six some playing a few holes in front of us. 8 minute tee times separated is. They need to push it back to at least 10 and not allow five and six play together.

Great day for golf

The weather was cooperating for a great day of golf. The pace was about 4 hours, so not great but not terrible either. The greens had a lot of pock marks from golfers not fixing their ball marks. The greens were difficult to read. At first I thought it was only me, but my fellow golfers all said the same thing.

Great course and nice folks.

I golf here with my 13 and 19 year old girls. The staff is super nice. The people aren’t grumpy but helpful. We have had to let a group play through and they were ok with it.

Greens are nice as are the tees and fairways.

Really well maintained and not a hard course at all but not short.

Golf Now / Riverside screw up

Paid through Golf Now and had my confirmation email. Riverside could not find it, told me it was between me and Golf Now. Golf Now confirmed I paid, Riverside said tough, not in their system. I had the Golf Now employee call Riverside. Riverside would not budge. So I had to pay double at Riverside. Basically the golfer, me, got shafted by the two big companies.

Why do they allow 5 sumes

It was a flustrating day, the course had a full tee sheet but was letting 5 sumes out which resulted in a very slow round. Based on this experience I won't be back to play here to many other courses in the same price range that enforce a pace of play using marshalls.

Sun City Riverview

This is an average course, but has its members/regulars. The course itself was so-so and the bunkers were all wet and muddy. The price of the course is average for this time of year, but they hit you with paying for carts at the course without telling you on line. This is the first time I have played a course in Arizona where they charged for a cart in the 5.5 years I have lived here.
The reason for the slow pace of play, almost 5 hours for the round, is that they were allowing 5 people to play together at a group. This mad it so you were waiting at every hole and green.
There is no Marshall on the course and people were ignorant. Our group of 4 were almost struck with shots by the golfers behind us 4 times and not once did anyone yell fore.
I would not recommend this course as there are plenty of better ones in the area.

Overbooked

Very pleased with the course conditions but they were oversold. Apparently it is common for them to book groups of five. I was told I could go out as a single even though the group ahead was a foursome and behind me was also a foursome. Two good players from the foursome ahead of me quit after three holes due to the pace of play. I got to the tenth tee in two hours and twenty minutes and decided to leave. I thought it was fair to ask for a nine hole credit but was turned down by a gentlemen that could have been nicer. I guess I took a risk playing on a Sunday and will not play this course on a weekend again.

5 somes

We booked a tee time as a double for the course. We fully expected the course to fill the tee time with another double. When we got there to play we were told that we were going to play as a 5 some. Apparently, they had several other 5 somes on the course already. I'm not a big fan of 5 somes. This slows down play even more than normal.
