Great Experience

The course is in excellent shape. Fairways & greens were very good. A few unexpected small muddy spots. Impressive conditions for the long hot no-rain summer in central TX.

This course is more concerned with making money

The fact that they are somehow not able to maintain jugs of water through out the course is pathetic and dangerous. Asking people to pay $50 to potentially get heatstroke in 100+ temperatures is unacceptable. I heard different reasons from clubhouse staff and concession staff. A supposed understaffing was cited but I saw at least 2 different Marshall’s on the course looking for outside booze. They could easily be replacing the water jugs, in addition to protecting their business. It’s negligent at best and purely greedy at worst. Riverside is staffed by a handful of people and can somehow manage the strain of filling water jugs. I’ve played here for over a decade and have always loved it. Like the layout and the conditions have improved over time but I will not return. The focus is exclusively on profit now and customer safety and service are a distant second or third.

The course is decent

The course is decent, greens were in good shape. Lady at the front desk said there was “water on the course, so you are not allowed to bring bottled water” when in fact there wasn’t water on the course. Honestly this lady is a complete b**** all the time. She should find another job cause customer service isnt her forte

Pretty solid course

The course conditions are pretty good. Greens roll a little slow in my opinion, and if people fixed their divots, it would go a long way in keeping the course in great condition. Not too challenging since there aren’t many bunkers or water hazards. Most challenging part is hitting on slopes if you don’t use the right clubs. Fairways overall is pretty wide. I do the worst on hole 9. But overall its an enjoyable course.

No Broccoli-Good, No Water - Bad.

I had a fun first time playing here. I had read the comments about the "broccoli" grass on the greens, but thankfully that appears to be gone. Ran into a party of 8 bachelor party gus on the 2nd par 3, but I think they were done after 9 at least. Bring your own water supply to wet your towel or drink or whatever. No water coolers on the whole course. Staff was friendly.

Course is in good shape. Greens were good. We played in 4 hours.
I would recommend to anyone that you should take your own water with you. There aren’t any water coolers on the course. You have to get it at the clubhouse or from the cart girl. We saw her twice on the front nine but didn’t see her at all on the back nine.
