Riverside Down

Paid $50.00 for a mediocre experience. I've been playing Riverside for years. This was the 2nd worse condition I've seen.

Always a good time

Played a solo round and was behind a big group but they let me play through. Staff is always friendly and price is nice compares to other courses. Greens are iffy but when I played they were going n good shape minus hole 3.

Solid Muni

Riverside is a great muni. If you’re looking to get out with some friends for a fun round play here. Some greens and tee boxes are doomed and are sand but besides that course is fine. Also is BYOB which is pretty cool

Beverage Cart

It was 100 degrees that day and there was no beverage cart through out whole 18 holes?! Why was that allowed on days when it’s extremely hot?

Greens improved tremendously

When I moved here 4 years ago, Riverside was a 2 out of 5 stars at best. Since new management came in, they’ve made some incredible improvements to the greens, and it’s a course I actually enjoy playing. Jimmy Clay always took precedence, but I wouldn’t waste my time or money out there unless I’m hitting the range. Riverside has definitely made its way towards the top of best muny greens in Austin.

Average course

Greens are barely hanging in there. At least they place the flag in areas of good grass for putting. Get it close or you will have a bumpy line.

Fairways are rock hard with patches of decent grass. You basically need to be center fairway every time to stay in the good grass, otherwise you will be punished with rocks/hard solid dirt/tree roots/etc. sand traps are full of rocks and difficult to get out of due to being firm sand.

They recently (within the last year I believe) replaced their old golf carts with updated models which makes the comfort a lot better experience. Came with a slight price increase but as a rider I can appreciate it. Overall decent if you can’t find a tee time at the other muni’s.
