Cart Inflation

The round of golf for my 3 sons and I was about $107. They did not say how much it was per person to ride in their no frills golf cart. I expected to pay about $20 -25 for the 4 of us (2 Carts). Instead it came to almost $60 and it was cart path only restricted. I have never had a Sun City course charge me so much for a cart. Shame on Golf Now for not posting the cart fees upfront!

Best value for the money

I called ahead to let them know I could not make my tee time due to highway construction and they worked me in! I was very impressed. The course was recently overseeded which made the greens a little slow. Other than that, it was perfect.

Redonkulous

Conditions are absolutely Redonkulous!!! The greens are hard and cut so low that the ball just rolls off the green. It's like putting on linoleum. This goofy golf course is only thing missing is the Windmill and Gorilla in front of the holes. The fairways are already dormant, dead and cut down to a tight lie. Nearly EVERY group was a five-some.

Good value, nice layout

Seemed like they will overseed very soon, conditions still okay but the greens are cut very short and are super fast, expect to add a stroke or 2 to your putting, played in 4 hours, staff very friendly & helpful

i would return

First time playing this course and I really enjoyed it. Staff was friendly. Conditions were perfect. Course was in great shape. The greens are probably the fastest that I've played in the Sun City/Sun City West area, and they have a lot of undulation. Real sand in the bunkers, not the hardpacked you find at other courses. The only downside I found? Like so many of the other courses in the area, there aren't any really memorable holes, ones you walk away from going, "Wow!" If that's Riverview's only criticism, that's not much.

Course Conditions

Greens where smooth and on the quicker side, Fairways where nice as where the tee boxes. Sand Traps had sand and where challenging. Rough was tough as it was fluffy. Course is in great shape.
