Fun course and great value

Most importantly, don't let the conditions of the pro shop and "driving range" fool you. The course is well maintained for a public golf course. The greens were very well maintained.
There is no driving range, just mats and you hit into a net. Bring extra balls as they do not provide balls at the "driving range".
I liked the course so much I came back the next day.
Obviously, not the nicest course I have played but for the cost and proximity to downtown Austin it was great.

Fun, walkable city course

Austin has several old fashioned, urban courses that are accessible to all and that are really fun to play, and Riverside is one of them. It was easy to get onto, the pace of play is fine, and the cost is reasonable. It’s a solid evreryday place that I would recommend.

Meh

First and Only time playing. Tee boxes are in really rough shape. Full of dirt and sand and uneven. Fairway conditions are fine. Easy layout with wide open holes and fairly short overall. What really let this place down were the greens conditions. I don’t think I’ve ever played a course with such horrific greens. Most were covered in large patches of dirt. Uneven rough cut grass so your ball would bounce instead of roll. Incredibly slow rolling.

Best Beginners Course there is

This course is is great, pretty straight except for a few holes, and relatively short. It give plenty of opportunities to build confidence in your game on most holes and then the course throws a few wrinkles at you with some tough holes to challenge your progression. The greens are more than what I could have expected, they roll pretty flat and the pin locations that I’ve seen the last few times I played made it fun and challenging at the same time. So for anyone looking to test themselves or just looking to enjoy a nice and easy day without losing 10 balls, come out to Riverside! Pro shop guy is also nice and makes everyone feel welcome regardless of skill! Good to see people throwing out good vibes at the golf course!

Austin Golf

Easy layout, not too long other than two par threes followed by two par fives into the wind. The greens ran well with some grassless patches on some. Carts were OK and plenty of water stations. Bunkers were soft and sandy.

Very Good Course

Enjoyed the layout and conditions. Greens were very nice except a couple sand areas on a few greens, must be fixing those. People need to fix ball marks, and no sand in bottles on cart to fill divots. Don't know if covid 19 issue or not.
Pace of play very good once we played thru a very slow 3some after hole #3.
Good value for the $.

Not Enjoyable

Not a well managed or maintained course. It is not in great shape and pace of play is not controlled by anyone except the players on the course.. I play golf for enjoyment and this was not enjoyable.

You Get What you pay for

For $45-$50 not too bad. Tee boxes and greens not in good condition, but not terrible. Most greens have some level of damage or full on sand repair. But a fun layout, hard to lose a ball, pretty short course overall.

I would play it again if I couldn’t find something else.
