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.

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.

It got worse over the years

I remember this course being pretty decent but the last time I played this course, the fairway was so hard I thought I was hitting my ball from a concrete floor...

The Group in front of us was hitting two balls per person and then there was another group in front which was super slow. One of the guys behind my group was blasting music (which I don't really care as long as it's not too loud but his was) parks right behind my cart while I'm trying to hit my tee shot making me unable to concentrate. After I hit my shot, this guy wearing his no sleave shirt says daylight is short so don't hit two balls per person when we were playing with just one ball which made my uncomfortable (my tee time was at 2:40 PM and ended up teeing off closer to 3 because of those groups in front of us). No marshalls to keep them in check.

I used to like the course but I don't know about now...

Not worth over 35 dollars.

Worth the hot deal

Wouldn’t pay over $40 for this course but it’s worth the deal. Greens are nice except some patches. played on a weekday and finished in 3 hours so pace of play was excellent!

Course is a pleasure to play

I enjoy this course. There is a mix of easier holes and tougher holes. The course is in great shape given the very dry conditions. Even on a nice (but windy) Sunday morning, pace of play was good.

The course played really well and was in really good shape. It was a busy day on the course, but rarely if ever did we have to wait on shots because of groups in front. Under 4 hours pace of play. Also had some pretty good size and good looking bucks out along the course.

Nice for a quick round

Course is in decent shape. Greens are starting to fill back in and soften up, but we’re very wet. This is a great course for beginners, or anyone looking to get out and play a quick afternoon round. Wish there was a full driving range, but the hitting net is a nice touch. Prefer when #1 is configured as a par 4. Hope they keep repairing the greens and tee boxes over the fall/winter. Seems like the course took on a lot of traffic after reopening after COVID, but it’s on the come up again. Staff is always an A+.

Great course for the price

Not a very long course as far as length is concerned. Chipping was fairly difficult because the grass wasn't very high in the rough or up around the green, but all in all it was a good experience.

Customer service

You might get confused when trying to drive to this course. Just follow google maps.
Checking in was easy.
Marshall drives you to the first tee.
Course was super wet. No sand on our cart to fill divots.
We had 6 with us. At some point the course was slow so we joined up. Keeping a decent pace of play, meaning no one was playing into us.
Marshall was very rude in his request for us to SPEED UP AND SPLIT UP.
he got our entire group riled up to the point some of us couldn’t enjoy the rest of the game.
