Solid

One of the better deals in the area. Fun course, chill staff. The greens were really fast for not being in great condition, so that was a challenge.

Layout good, greens OK, fairways not great

The fairways had very little grass and thus hard as a dried out pancake. To be fair, what grass there is now is dormant but most courses have some to hit off of. I liked the overall layout and would come back in Spring to see the overall conditions. Greens ranged from fair to good condition.

Slow Pace of Play

Greens were struggling somewhat, and several tee boxes were not level, but the rest of the course was in good condition. Pace of play was slow, the course could use a Marshall.

Outstanding condition and beautiful greens!

Every time we play this outstanding course, it is in better condition than before. We try to play there once a month and are NEVER disappointed with the the conditions and professionalism of the Staff. You can certainly see how this course was once the Austin Country Club due to the excellent layout and challenging angles. Ever since Austin Community College bought this course and brought in a highly professional general manager, the course has become a must play in the Austin area.

Greens are rough

Course was very compact. Good thing is your ball rolls forever, bad thing is your ball rolls forever. Great for fairway but the ball would not stick on the greens. Hopefully they will make improvements to greens during the spring.

Need attention

I have had to play this course 10+ times. Every time I have gone out there it has been a blast. I always mean new cool people out there. But this last time I went out there the golf course definitely needs to be attended to. I understand is this time of year that it’s hard for the golf course. But hole number two green was at its worst and the greens, can’t really call them greens

If you want to challenge your elevation skills, this is the course for you.
Also keep an eye out for the deer on the back nine.

Rude Staff, Golf Now tee times say Cart Included, They charged me for a Cart anyway and the Cart Died

The reservation clearly say CART Included.

I got unexpectedly charged for a cart & then it died on the back 9.

When I went to get my car, these guys saw me leave the cart & stole a brand new bag of tees and some new golf balls from my bag.

Worst experience, terrible service. I paid the cart fee and it still died. Riverside Golf Course is a one and done.

They overwater the greens and fairways to compensate for their laziness. It’s a mushy curse with no Marshall’s and terrible service in the golf shop. Even if the cart didn’t die, I would probably give this 1 star.

Always an Affordable 18

Without over seeded fairways, winter brings yellow to the course but the grass was still in decent condition. Greens are small and some show some damage but are ok overall. The staff is always nice and they usually have a drink cart coming around even during the week.
